about

A drink concocted by restless Civil War troops, "Oh Be Joyful" was made out of such things as turpentine, tar water, lamp oil, and brown sugar. As Daniel Bachman puts it, "...it fucked them up. They drank it and they loved it." Such interest in minute details are reflected not only in the Philadelphian's passion for mid-1800's history, but also in his song construction. Oh Be Joyful is the 7th release for Bachman, and the 2nd on Debacle. This digital/CD format re-issue (from the vinyl on One Kind Favor) features the 21-year old virtuoso's warm, unfolding rhythms meandering from his finger picked steel guitar. Branching beyond the American primitive style he's recognized for, this latest 7-track offering forays into new elements of style, particularly on tracks "Sita Ram (Who is God)" and "The Bridge of Flowers".
