Rachel Lyn Harrington Discography: Part 1

There's less than a week to go before Rachel Lyn Harrington & The Knock Outs are due to appear at The Cleveland Bay (with support from Sara Dennis).

As further preparation for what will definitely be one of the highlights of the year, I present the first part (of three) of a basic discography of Rachel's work.

Unless you can track down a copy of the very rare 2004 EP Halloween Leaves (track list: My Morphine; Hickory Wind; Halloween Leaves; That's How Strong My Love Is) then the place to start is the full-length debut CD...

The Bootlegger's Daughter

Track List

Sunshine Girl
Shoeless Joe
Blow The Ballad of Bill Miner
Up The River
Halloween Leaves
Walk To You
Louis Collins
Summer's Gone
Farther Along

Halloween Leaves is the only song on the EP which was written by Rachel, so it's good that it is included here.

Stand out tracks: Sunshine Girl, Shoeless Joe, Up The River and Summer's Gone.

City of Refuge

Track list

Karen Kane
A Housewife's Lament
Old Time Religion/Working on a Building
The Clearcut
Angel Boy
Ode to Billie Joe
I Don't Want to Get Adjusted to This World
Under the Big Top

Stand out tracks:  Karen Kane, Carver and I Don't Want To Get Adjusted To This World.

The CDs can be bought from many places, including Rachel's own website. Those fortunate enough to have a ticket for next week's show should be able to purchase the CDs and get them signed in person.
