Call Me Lonesome Dave Insley, Dave Insley, 2005.

musrevudaveinsleyWith great song titles such as “I’m Afraid of Dyin’” and “Cowboy Lullaby,” this CD should be more engaging. Dave Insley’s voice has a great rough and tumble quality, but the tunes on this compilation are too cold and hygienic.  Insley is singing in some smoky bar, but the band is playing somewhere else. The whole CD seems disconnected from itself. It held such promise, but it feels very lonesome indeed. —Chris Wienk
