DOUG BURR / BEAU JENNINGS & THE TIGERS
OKAY Vinyl Series Vol. 3
CATALOG NO: CAV012
FORMAT: 7” vinyl plus digital download
Limited edition of 300 on transparent red vinyl
Vol. 3 of the OKAY Vinyl Series features songs by Texas based indie/folk singer Doug Burr and Oklahoma rock n’ roll band Beau Jennings & The Tigers. Burr’s track, “First Son of Connecticut” is a companion of sorts to a track from 2015’s critically lauded album Pale White Dove. Jennings’ cut, "No One Can Destroy a Song" has been a live staple of his concerts for several years, and in 2017 it won the Woody Guthrie Festival Songwriting Competition. Beau and the band worked through many arrangements both live and in the studio before capturing the version offered here.
Recorded with Scott Johnson and Dustin Ragland at Stowaway Recording in Oklahoma City.
Mastered by TW Walsh.
PRESS FOR DOUG BURR
“Exquisitely detailed, slow and deliberate, his songs have as much in common with the literature of Eudora Welty and Cormac McCarthy as with the work of the Americana Dimmerati to whom he is often, and somewhat shortsightedly, compared…”
“The new album is a pure stunner from beginning to end … Burr, along with his band, has expertly taken the darkest, most bombastic elements of his past records and twisted the knobs until they cracked.”
PRESS FOR BEAU JENNINGS & THE TIGERS
“Beau Jennings and the Tigers capture what it's like to feel lost in a familiar place.”
- NPR Music
“(Beau Jennings’ record) ’The Verdigris’…is exceedingly different from anything Jennings — and probably anybody else in Oklahoma — has ever done before.”
