Bill & Jean Bradway: Gospel Hawaiianaires
I guess it’s pretty fair to say that as of 2010 I’ve become a bit jaded when it comes to records. The sense of anything being possible I used to feel when walking into a strange Goodwill has all but left me. There was certainly a time when flipping to a dude in a bow tie with a custom made triple-neck steel guitar would have been all I needed to become sufficiently aroused. I struggle to hold onto that. It’s certainly not Bill or Jean’s fault, but I’ve been hurt. I’ve learned the hard way that the good lord taketh away far more often than he giveth when it comes to the records made by his flock. With this in mind, I’m please to report that the exotic bent given to the white bread spirituals on this lp are going a long way toward soothing my burn. Drifting Polynesian soundscapes mixed with a good dose guitar hotrodsmanship abound within. Like sipping a pineapple garnished cocktail on the beach in the hereafter.
