John Hartford – Nobody Knows What You Do – Cassette
Flying Fish Records
The sound here is largely a traditional one, mixing folk, bluegrass, and country, utilizing plenty of fine picking from such hotshots as mandolinist Sam Bush and pedal steel wizard Buddy Emmons, and from Hartford himself on guitar and banjo. With a voice on the humble side of homespun, it’s Hartford’s sense of humor that makes NOBODY KNOWS so infectious. Whether he’s exploiting his lack of vocal range on “False Hearted Tenor Waltz,” promoting cannabis for the elderly on “Granny Wontcha Smoke Some Marijuana,” or rhapsodizing about sizable mammaries on “The Golden Globe Awards,” Hartford’s good-natured pokes to the ribs make this a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
