Billy Talbot’s new album “On the Road to Spearfish”

VAPOR RECORDS ON THE ROAD TO SPEARFISHCrazy Horse member Billy Talbot said his new album “On the Road to Spearfish” out this week was inspired by the vast North American Prairie, where he and his wife Karin have restored a homestead in Spearfish, South Dakota.

“On The Road To Spearfish”

“Big Rain video”. A great album and thanks to let us listen and see to it.

In addition to the digital release of the nine-song set, a companion HD film chronicling the sessions will be available. On The Road To Spearfish follows up the Billy Talbot Band’s 2004 album Alive In The Spirit World.  With the addition of newcomer Ryan James Holzer (trombone, harmonica, autoharp, organ, acoustic guitar), the same versatile musicians join Talbot again: guitarist Matt Piucci, Erik Pearson (horns, banjo, lap steel), Mark Hanley (lap steel, mandolin, guitar), Tommy Carns (bass), and Stephan Junca (drums). Using vintage gear and an eclectic orchestra of acoustic and electric instruments, the album was recorded at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco.

Horse Sense: Billy Talbot on Energy, Emotion, and Free Expression with Neil Young

By JIMMY LESLIE
Wed, 17 Apr 2013

NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE’S BILLY TALBOT POSSESSES A PROFOUND UNDERSTANDING of how to pick up on a tune and make it flow.

From the explosion of 1969’s “Cinnamon Girl” on through “Hey Hey, My My” and into the present, Talbot has been Young’s rhythmic compass and eternal energy source. NY&CH convened to record at Young’s house during full moons last spring and summer.

What is at the heart of your bass style, and how do you apply it to Crazy Horse?

My bass style is simply to keep the feel flowing. I don’t like to make up things, per se. I like to let elements beyond playing the changes and the groove come to me within the feel as the song progresses. We don’t play R&B songs built on dominant bass lines; our songs are all about the lyrics or the sincere expressiveness of Neil’s lead guitar, so mostly my job is to play a lot of root notes with the main feel, and stay that way for however long is required with energy. Capturing that magic is really important to Crazy Horse, so we like to record a new song the first time we perform it.
