On The Shepherd's Dog, Sam Beam has confessed to finding spiritual inspiration in Tom Waits' piece de resistance, Swordfishtrombones, an album with which Waits upended his previous strategies and forged a new musical language for himself. Recorded by Sam with the assistance of longtime producer and engineer Colin Studebaker, The Shepherd's Dog succeeds in accomplishing a similar cathartic recasting of the artist's intentions. The arrangements here are kaleidoscopic and rich.

The original cd release of this recording can sometimes sheer off your ears, and this LP fixes all that. My new reference for this recording. Sound quality: 4 Pressing quality: 3.5

Excellent LP...Music, Lyrics & Recording

one of my favorites for 2007. If you are a IAW fan, you will enjoy his latest release. The vinyl pressing is excellent!
