Roger McGuinn / Cardiff Rose

Among the former Jim McGuinn’s finest post-Byrds efforts, Cardiff Rose (1976) boasts most of the Rolling Thunder Revue in view, with Mick Ronson helming the producer/guitarist’s chair.

Also featuring drummer Howie Wyeth, Rob Stoner glides through the changes with walking lines and pocket grooves that afford this stellar song cycle a definitive swing feel, oft weaving counter-melodic lines akin to a master jazz cat!

Worthy of an expanded edition, Stoner once again stretched the boundaries of folk rock.

Yeah, you had Zimmerman, Roger, and the platinum Spider, however sans bassist Rob Stoner - along with drummer Howie Wyeth, there’s no rolling nor thunder in this revue!
