Artist: Bob Pyle Album: “Apples & Oranges” CD Review:
With the first song titled “A World Made Out of Spam” I thought I was going to be listening to a children’s record. But lo and behold, it is something completely new to me and hey, maybe even totally unique. It’s a vegetarian CD!
OK, not all of the songs are all about being vegetarian. Most of them are though and they are pretty funny too. He very cleverly uses humor to get you to listen and then perhaps to get you to thinking about your eating choices. You never feel like you are being given a lecture.
For a moment put your food choices aside. There are songs about other subjects. All of the songs are in a folk style with lots of country touches like dobro, banjo, mandolin, guitars, bass and even some Stradivarius violin. The songs are mostly upbeat with simple gentle melodies. The musicians and backup singers are top notch throughout.
If you like humorous writing, folk/country music and don’t mind vegetarians, you will love this CD.
