Black Jake & The Carnies - Where The Heather Don't Grow CD
When the initial pressing of WTHDG finally sold out, Jake was contented to let the album slide into obscurity. But demand was strong so we dug up the old masters and are proud to announce the re-issuing of our debut album.
Black Jake & the Carnies sets fierce murder ballads and cautionary tales to the beat of an old-time string band. The Ypsilanti septet's unique blend of Americana, Bluegrass and punk (dubbed "Crabgrass") sets a raucous pace for original songs about loup-garous and banjo-pickin' demoniacs. Their ten song debut record, "Where the Heather Don't Grow" was recorded and mixed by Jim Roll in his Ann Arbor, MI studio.
