Hi, Robert Doxtater here and thanks for checking out the CD info for my first effort Titled ' Americana' Having lived in many regions of our great country and settling near the Nature Coast of Florida has given me great incentive to write the Lyrics to Americana. The Chiefland Citizen Newspaper reviewed Americana and said ' The Dixie Undergrounds First effort 'Americana' is a 'Very easy listen'. Well written and produced it moves easily from Rocker to ballad, from blues to pop and back again. The Music features well rounded,seasoned performances that get better with every listen. Personnel include Mike Mullis,drums and vocals. Charles'C.W.' Wilber on bass guitar and Bruce Miller handling guitars, dobro and Keyboards. After a haunting rendtion of the Star Spangled Banner masterfully played on dobro with acoustic guitar accompaniment the Americana CD gets right in your face with an all out rocker titled 'I'm Rich,You're not. A satirical perspective of living from hand to mouth. The next cut 'Paying the Price' reaches way down inside the mindset of 'Down on my luck'. Followed by the next cut 'Spiders' A very funky look at what happens when man and spider meet. Next on the menu is ' Dreams of Her', Americana's only Ballad, this song accuratly depicts a plutonic relationship and features a Blistering Guitar Solo by Mr.Miller. Home Again, is next and ventures into the R&B/Jazz pop scene with certainty and grace. Next up is 'Lifes Best' Sung by Mr.Mullis in a style reminisent of Bob Seger and features some real in the pocket playing by bassist 'C.W' Wilber and a shimmering bottle neck slide solo on dobro by Mr.Miller, the remaining music even includes an old fashioned Christmas song and one cover. An easy listen. Great work.
