TOM PACHECO RELEASES ANOTHER GREAT ALBUM

The Daily Freeman 12/19/08

Tom Pacheco releases another great album
By DAVID MALACHOWSKI
Reviewer
ARTIST: Tom Pacheco

ALBUM: “Railroad Rainbows & Talkin’ Blues” (Bare Bones)

Local treasure Tom Pacheco, with merely his brother Paul on bass, has another great CD of cinematic stories and vivid characters — a trip through 21-century America, places people and stories, talking blues traditional folk songs

A cast of colorful characters emerge from a plastic dashboard Jesus (“Out in the Spooky Country”) to having Hunter Thompson pick him up hitching in (“Riding with Mr. Thompson”) and the timely reminisce of the good-old days of cheap gas (“10 Cent Gas”), Woodstock winters and “Donuts and Deer.” Pacheco’s deep vibrato echoes John Stewarts in “Ship of Light.”

Writing that Pacheco is a local treasure is an understatement of giant proportions.

Support this man.

Pacheco performs at the Rosendale Café Saturday.
