Duke And The King In Uncut’s Album of The Year List

Long Live The Duke & The KingLong Live The Duke & The King has been placed at No. 32 in Uncut’s 50 Best Albums of 2010 list and  No.4 in their 20 Best Americana Albums of the year! The new issue of the magazine also features single, Shaky on the free CD.

If the Felice Brothers initially seemed to be Woodstock-dwelling Band acolytes, subsequent releases have revealed a much wider-ranging bunch. Hence Simone Felice’s second album with The D&K, which evolved their sound from Laurel Canyon reveries to this invocation of cosmic country soul.

However, if the magazine’s editor, Allan Jones, had full say on the list, it would have been much nearer the top of the list. He mentions the album as being in his personal top 10!

Not heard it? Really?? Well it is, of course, in the Loose shop, here. Also on beautiful vinyl, with free album download.
