This new CD, 'Travelin'' is pure Michael Faubion. No, really. It's literally 'pure' Michael Faubion. Every word-every note-was written, sung and played by Michael himself! But, it's not the 'band' that makes this CD what it is. It's the Faubion turn of phrase that we've all come to enjoy. Michael takes us on the road with him with songs like Travelin' and Get Down the Road. He gives us a view of his life before Alaska with Oregon Border, Pocatello Belle and Son of the West. Then, there's philosophy of sorts with Dead Man's Shoes. And, is there anyone who's heard Three Dollar Guitar who doesn't wonder if it's not biographical? Mixed in with the country and Tex-Mex sound, he even gives us a couple rock and roll tunes with Sharlet and That Boogie Thing. ---Bob Fairchild, Sourdough Biscuits.
