Return to Americana

Mark Brine

Recorded in 1981 and originally released in 1985. Now on CD for the first time!

"Brine probably single-handedly shaped the Americana genre by releasing "RETURN TO AMERICANA" in 1985, a time when today's current Americana artists were still being called 'Country' or 'Blues' artists (if, indeed, they were even recording yet!)" - Dave Sichak (www.hillbilly-music.com)

I Deliver

Mark Brine

Early styled 12 bar blues originals, old saloon piano work and some great finger picking.

Brine does early styled 12 bar blues ("I Deliver"), old saloon piano work and implements some great finger picking tunes. His final song, "In The Hands of God" he does his best with twangy vocals and beautiful guitar work. Brine does the best traditional American roots music that I have heard in quite a while. -- John Shelton-Ivany Top Twenty-One
