Routes and Branches Play List 09/12/09

I saw Poor Man's Whiskey this past week on the opening night of their "Dark Side Of The Moonshine" tour. I was totally blown away by their musicianship. I last saw them about a year and a half ago and I thought they were a good bluegrass band then, but this week I saw a much more mature and seasoned band that I couldn't tell wheather they wanted to be a Bluegrass band or a Rock 'N' Roll band.
Poor Man's Whiskey's new CD is a double disk of which the first one is their version of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon". It has a Bluegrass backbone, but it gets as electric as the original when appropriate. For the most part they stick with the original lyrics, except for the tune "Money" which they change the lyrics to Moonshine. Pink Floyd Fans and Bluegrass fans can both enjoy this album.
The second disc is called "Moonshine" and contains 10 new songs which also show how the band has grown. I featured several songs from the disc on this week's show. My show follows a show that features 60's and 70's music so we set it up to play Pink Floyd's "Money" fron the original album to end that show into Poor Man's Whiskey's "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" to start my show. It was a fun transition.
