Artist: Dave Alvin
Genre: Rock/Pop
Release Date: June 1998

Review by LarryG
3 stars out of 4

Alvin was a leader of The Blasters, one of the best bar bands of the 80's. Since then, Alvin has refined and simplified his sound, evoking the old west and traditional folk. Blackjack David is filled with simple songs about undramatic situations involving himself and realistic middle american characters who he refuses to condescend to. Alvin's strong, understated vocals and the unadorned music match the stories. Most of the songs revolve around Alvin's acoustic guitar. The very spare instrumentation keeps the focus where it should be, on the songs.
