Orville Johnson - Freehand


This album is half vocal tunes and half instrumentals featuring my dobro playing. I cover songs by John Hartford, Bill Monroe, Leonard Bernstein, Mick Jagger, among others, and I wrote one myself. Two of my all-time favorite dobroists Mike Auldridge and Stacy Phillips join me for some fun on cuts 2 (Stacy) and 6 (Mike). Music critics would call this album "eclectic".

1. Imitation of the Blues, 2. Dobro Rhumba, 3. Somewhere (West Side Story), 4. You Are the One, 5. A Lua do Amazonia, 6. Rocky Road Blues, 7. As Tears Go By, 8. Yazoo City Jail, 9. Waggy Tail, 10. Today
