Rick Pickren Liberty (Songs of America)   While not Western by subject, much of this material regularly finds its way into the sets of Western performers.   Preservationist Rick Pickren’s performances are joyfully expressive and the acoustic treatments add to the whole-cloth character of the piece. Part of the fun lies in all the lesser known verses of the songs being included. This may cause exclamations such as “those words are part of it too??!!” Did you know “Stars & Stripes Forever” has lyrics by Sousa?? Beyond the four guest musicians on steel, dobro and other instruments, the versatile Pickren (vocals/guitars/banjo/bouzouki/mandolin/harmonica/melodic/keyboard & percussion) does most of the heavy lifting! He also produced, recorded and designed the packaging. And get this! All the composer credits and dates of origin are in place. Even “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” “My Country Tis Of Thee” and “Battle Hymn Of The Republic!” No easy-outs of “PD” here, folks!   As with all the other Rick Pickren releases, this one is very highly recommended. Thirteen tracks.   CD: $15 ppd from Big Strike Music, 122 Ashland Ave., River Forest, Il 60305. Also through cdbaby, amazon & iTunes.
