Band of Blacky Ranchette Discography
Still Lookin' Good To Me
While the memories of BBR seemed distant to Howe, it was never far from his mind. Recently he found himself collaborating with a number of various musicians, so late last year he began sowing the seeds for a new BBR record. Wrangling together a host of A list collaborators, Howe recorded whenever and wherever possible. Recorded in cars (Kurt from Lambchop), studios, hallways (Neko Case), and on stage (M Ward), Still Looking Good To Me delivers charming performances throughout; security guard interruptions and all. Highlights include the first ever duet between Richard Buckner and Neko Case, "Getting it Made", and an adult friendly version of the kid's classics "Working on the Railway" between Howe and Jason from Grandaddy.
In the Pro-Tools/computer era where engineers can polish every note and performances can be augmented by computer generated symphonies, it's nice knowing that nothing can replicate the spark and energy of a good time jam.
