With no accompaniment other than her own acoustic guitar and piano, and BUCKINGHAM SOLO could scarcely be more spare, but Tift Merritt's clear, resonant voice, delicate but never fragile, soars gracefully though these 12 songs with nothing to hold them back. Though Merritt is not given to showboating, her style is obviously carefully considered, with the subtle gospel flourishes of "Morning Is My Destination," the easygoing blues turns of "Still Pretending," and the cleaner, folkie accents of "Stray Paper" revealing the variety of textures she can bring to her music. Half of the songs on and BUCKINGHAM SOLO were drawn from Merritt's 2008 album ANOTHER COUNTRY, and they're well served by her simple but complimentary piano work, and earlier songs such as "Good Hearted Man" and "Trouble Over Me" have only grown richer with a few years of experience. Merritt also includes a lovely and heartfelt cover of George Harrison's "I Live for You" and one new tune, "Do Something Good," which could easily be pigeonholed as a "message song" if it wasn't written and performed with such plainspoken, unaffected compassion.
Tift Merritt's first three albums each found her exploring her musical world view in different ways in the studio, but and BUCKINGHAM SOLO shows she doesn't need a producer or a band to make her music speak to an audience, and this is a brilliant recording that shows how much depth and beauty can be found in a performance of such simplicity.
I am selling about 500 American copies of CDs. All are new. These come from a warehouse clearance. Some are promotional copies; others are standard retail copies. Starting price is just 10 cents a CD.
This will be my final sale season (and will probably run till April - May) as I am finding it too hard to source more stuff at a reasonable price.
Many are rare / obscure
/ never released in Australia.
Some come with different artwork; check the format description. Note that some have been in storage uncased for up to 20 years so may have small surface marking; where they do I have checked that they play perfectly.
All are sold without
plastic cases unless specifically stated as this reduces your postage cost, though some are in digipacks if that was how they were released. I can supply plastic cases but these are $1 extra to cover cost of the case plus extra postage.
Postage is $2 each for first and second item, then $1 per item for additional CDs over 2. For bigger orders I can ship up to 500 grams (10 regular CDs) for $7.
International buyers add $6 to the
total. Because countries vary, if it costs less I'll refund the difference. For example up to 250 grams (3 CDs without cases) to the USA, Canada or UK is $7.
New Zealand - $5 for first item, then $1 per item for additional CDs
