John Batdorf & James Lee Stanley
John Batdorf, back in the early seventies, was the talent-heavy half of the duo Batdorf and Rodney. He wrote some wonderful songs back then, among them "Home Again" , "Don't You Hear Me Callin' " and "Let Me Go". John has recently begun performing again as a solo artist and with his old friend James Lee Stanley, who has been doing the singer/songwriter thing for decades also. He is known as one of the best voices around and is revered for his storytelling and humor. Back in 2003 they got together and recorded All Wood and Stones and in 2013 All wood and stones 2, both reworkings of some of the early Rolling Stones catalog. Done as acoustic folk rock with harmony vocals. In addition to doing some of the mellower Stones stuff fairly true to the originals, they also attack some of the rockers greatly rearranged.
It all works splendidly both on CD and done live. --We've seen this performance once before and its a true treat. Don't miss this one!
