Scott Nolan- Montgomery Eldorado LP. On his third album ‘Montgomery Eldorad, Scott Nolan reminds us: "It's not the singer, it's the song." The words are apt in general, and perfectly suit Nolan's case too. This well seasoned Canadian is an extremely talented songwriter with a knack for melody, arrangements and lyrics, possessing a unique, one-of-a-kind nasally-twang of a voice that takes some getting used to. A few spins of this new album should make most people believers, though. Nolan and comrades offer up 10 tracks of varied roots-ey rock n' roll with some soulful heartbreak (‘Trial Separation’), funk (‘My My Hey Hey’) and midtempo bluesy rock (‘Ain't Dead Yet’, featuring guest vocals by the Holmes Brothers) to boot. Travel and road experiences are a common theme, but no matter what Nolan's singing about, the material is universally strong with ‘Poor Man's Holiday’, the horn-driven ‘Sometimes’ and ‘You Rock We Roll’ serving as the album's highlights. Montgomery Eldorado isn't a real town, but this album is definitely one worth visiting.
