Tony Furtado

American Gypsy (What Are Records)

String-man extraordinaire Tony Furtado kicks off his first effort for Boulder's What Are Records? imprint with "Oh Berta, Berta," a wholly successful showcase for his Everyman singing and flying fingers that sells up without selling out. Elsewhere, he blends some additional vocal turns, on the Mike Nesmith cover "Some of Shelly's Blues" and a new version of "Staggerlee," with figurative excursions to locales such as Ireland (the Celtic-influenced "Tinker's Fancy") and Appalachia (the slide-heavy "Kentucky Stripmine"). American Gypsy tends to roam, but it always feels like home.
