Comments Off on You Gotta See This: Dave Gleason

Fuck mainstream country. You want the real deal you gotta go to a pro like (former) California kid Dave Gleason, a transplant to Nashville in recent years and a flame-keeper for what Gram Parsons, Merle Haggard and Buck Owens got rolling back in the day. While Gleason can be an expansive and eloquent guitarist who stretches out wonderfully, one of his greatest strengths is packing a lot into just a few minutes. This clip from Music City Roots offers up a live take on a keeper from Gleason’s latest long-player Turn And Fade, which ought to be in the collection of anyone who loves country music free of Shanias and PR agency developed hat acts.
