Don't know who this Blackie and his Rodeo Kings are; but they've turned out two really fine albums. The first, Kings and Queens is slightly better, featuring female stars of Country, folk and pop.
This album, Kings and Kings, is the men's turn. More Anericana and with Bruce Cockburn, Canadiana, than country. Mostly very nice stuff, although, unlike the previous reviewer, my LEAST favorite is City and Colors' "Beautiful Scars". My favorite tracks are "High Wire" featuring Raul Malo and "Where the River Rolls with the 'Men of Nashville'
The collaborations on Kings and Kings don't work for me as well as those on Kings and Queens but BARK stay true to their mission of bringing roots Canadiana to our ears. The version of Beautiful Scars with Dallas Green got lots of airplay on CBC and is a standout track on the album. Go to this for a gut wrenching version www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOPrXQYEL4w
