Product Notes

Don Morrison's voice flows like a river. A river in flood. An unstoppable force that sweeps all before it, full of rocks and branches. As a songwriter, he's the real deal. Insight, humour. Pathos, honesty and fun. Catchy hooks and uplifting choruses. Songs about our life, you and me and the things around us. He has been described as 'Paul Kelly meets Lou Reed and gets Johnny Cash to sing.' Don probably knows more about the resonator guitar (think Dobro, National, shiny metal bodied acoustic) than all but a handful of people in the world. After all, he makes them. His Donmo brand of hand-crafted guitars are sought after all over the world by players of blues, country and roots music. The reason he started making them is because he loves playing them. And it shows, he's playing them every chance he gets. On the streets of his home town Adelaide, Australia with his his two sons in "Prawnhead", in pubs and clubs with his six piece band "The Lonely Cosmonauts" who were described in LA.s Folkworks magazine as "American roots music thrown through an Australian meat grinder," and even on the odd rare occasion with the 80s legends "The Bodgies". "All his songs are fueled by a wry larrikinism soaked in the dark humour we suburban folks use to deal with the very sad and silly situations can find ourselves in. Aussies are especially blessed with the nasal twang needed to achieve authority in Hillbilly Blues. Don's voice has all that but it's the attitude that can't be learnt or faked. Don is the real thing but, down the back, in the garage. Let's call it Magill Delta or maybe Croydon Appalachia." 'Resonator Country' is a fine collection of unique songs that tell stories about the things around us from weddings to car parks and amnesia to ageing. The music and musicians on this recording are first rate and add plenty to the uplifting feel of the project. "Don has the larger than life personality we like in a cultural icon. His musical journey is becoming the stuff of legend.
