B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 21 AUG. 2010

UK singer/songwriter Pete Molinari, pictured here at the 2009 Cambridge Folk Festival, has just released an excellent record of Ricky Nelson/Bob Dylan/Everly Brothers-influenced folk/pop, entitled A Train Bound For Glory. Thanks to producer/musician Adam Landry, along with the fine guitar work of Chris Scruggs (acoustic & electric guitars, pedal steel), there's more of an edge to Molinari's songs of the heart. As well, Molinari's singing has matured, growing into his own, distinct and golden voice. Not to mention that The Jordanaires also guests on a few songs, as well as The McCrary Sisters.
