“WE WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN”

CD album reviewed by Terry Currier. This is a last statement and loving tribute to one of Portland’s most talented songwriters and artists, Scotland Barr. Scotland passed away in 2009 with an album that was only partially completed. Disc one has Scotland singing on all tracks and disc two features vocals by the rest of the band. All songs were written or co-written by Scotland. It’s a roots rock record with a band that stands up with bands like the Jayhawks and Wilco. Their passion and love of Scotland and his music turned this album into a near masterpiece.
