There is no holding back with Clint, he sings it as he sees it and his tales are outstanding; Country is often mistaken for being all about a dog called Bluey but times have changed and Clint gives us his version of Americana.
High School Sweethearts (with Gretta Ziller) is the nearest to Country you can expect on this album and is beautifully performed and a very visual song, taking one back to those school days and first love. Gretta’s harmonies are tailor made for Clint.
‘The windscreen wipers sing’; now, who could come up with a phrase like that? But one can imagine that journey on The Road To Grantville as it is so explicit and can be related to so easily. Clint’s lyrics are not simple, but they are meaningful and with every song the story goes on.
There are two versions of ‘Couldn’t promise you rain’ on the album with very subtle differences, so take your choice! I promised you love but couldn’t promise you rain; what a great line in a song full of the hardships of outback living. Do not mention the mortgage man! A real tearjerker for those who know anything about outback life.
This is an album to listen to and not to be used as background music; Clint’s musical journey to date has given us some great songs and he continues to do so.
Grab a drink, sit in front of that winter fire and enjoy!
