G.L. Brackett moved to New York City in 1990 after living in England for 5 years. In Big Trouble is a collection of songs played in the NYC scene since then.
The songs compiled in In Big Trouble range in genre from folk to progressive rock, and the musicians on the disc hail from all over the country. They gathered in the meat-packing district in NYC in the mid-nineties at The Place (Stratosphere) to record through the night while Dizzy Izzy's lit up the late night streetwalkers before the sun woke up--and long before the glitz moved in.
G.L. Brackett has played music in England and America and first recorded a version of Blake's "Songs of Innocence & Experience," produced and released in England in 1989. In the last few years, he has played up and down the East Coast, often with the Mighty Manatees Medicine Show (https://www.tradebit.com).
What you will find in the songs included on this disc is a strong sense of the American song tradition, through Dylan and Guthrie, where lyrics are held by melodies like roots are by soil. Brackett is attracted to the rough mysticism of these writers (as well as the likes of Marley), and feels they are a connection back to writers such as William Blake, whose writings were a fusion of vision and image unmatched in his period.
For a rock-out anthem, try "Freedom Train." This song has the full southern rock band flavor, and will help you let go of whatever holds you back. Warnning: you will be singing for days after you hear it, so be prepared.
For an intimate acoustic exploration of the spirit, listen to "Brother Soul," which has had radio airplay on Chicago's legendary folk show "The Midnight Special" on WFMT. Acoustic guitar, grand piano, harmonica and harmonized voices. That's it.
For an ageless plaint of love gone wrong, check out "Breakin' My Heart." It opens like this:
Sailor sink at the break of dawn
Cowboy shoot the horse he rode in on
I'm one day up, you're two days gone...
To bop and jump around to a legendary hero, play a cut from "Henry" and let your problems slide away.
This disc has found itself in a "favorites" slot in players all over the country and abroad. You will play it straight through, as each song has its own soul, but is part of the seamless tapestry of the whole disc. I get emails from people who love it more and more. Apparently it grows with them as much as it grew with me in the making of it. Try it yourself. You won't be disappointed.
We hope you enjoy, and that you one day find yourself In Big Trouble. It is a good thing, for sure.
