Paul Pigat: Boxcar Campfire

Best known as his alter ego and inbred rockabilly hero Cousin Harley, Paul Pigat is actually a man with a plethora of songs spanning nearly every musical genre. On Boxcar Campfire, Pigat reaches within his inner country soul to deliver an album of familiar, traditional country tales, told in his unique 21st century voice.

From the outset, this disc pays homage to the rocker in Pigat, calling to mind the Grateful Dead’s psychedelic country western side, as well as an intriguing take on the Rolling Stones “All Over Now.” Later, Pigat turns traditional country on tracks “Corn Liquor” and “Sweet Tooth.” The highlight of Boxcar Campfire is dobro-charged “Troubled Mind,” beautiful track that will sound just as timeless years from now as it does today.
