Doug Ingoldsby 'I’ve Got a Picture' - Self Release

The rather naff cover hides a little treasure trove of well written, pleasantly sung and played singe- songwriter tracks that reminded me of my transition from folk club Irish trad through country rock and hard core country to my present resting place in bluegrass.

Hints of the band America or Batdorf & Rodney and a host of easy listening west coast sounds are neatly packed in this nine track self release from the man who is also known as The Vitamin Professor. To call this a vanity publication would be an injustice to a really quite enjoyable visit to a lost decade of simple guitar driven harmonies that soothe the ear and relax the mind. Again I enjoyed the listen ... but the cover !!! Ouch, it will probably lose a few sales along the way.
