The Tillers' self-titled LP lands at the #25 spot on Gary Hayes Country Top 50 Country LPs of 20
I have always admired and liked this band’s music, and if HAD TO name a favorite album by them I could not. Their precise musicianship usually makes many of their songs enjoyable in every way, and it accompanies songs like “The Weald And The Wild” to make it a wonderful song to begin an album.
I related very well personally to the song “Like A Hole In My Head” , which I was hearing during all of my summer festivals I was covering like Muddy Roots. As well as the next song “The Old General Store Is Burning Down” , which features some great fiddle.
Their signature sound can be heard vibrantly on the song called “Riverboat Dishwashing Song”, that beautiful string band flow paired with a story woven very eloquently within the lyrics of the song. The final song on this album called “Another Postcard” was another simple song that I enjoyed so much, I could sit back and enjoy this band all night
