Spencer P. Jones Feat. The Escape Committee – Fugitive Songs (2007)

SPmp3 192 kbps | 64 MB | UL

Drawing down from a swampy blues-rock tradition, pioneered in this country by the likes of the Scientists, Fugitive Songs oozes familiarity rather than originality, Spencer P. Jones’ weathered voice hinting at the miles of highway traveled in a career spanning over 20 years, while current band, The Escape Committee, don’t waste a note. ‘When I’m No Longer Poor’ proves the highlight, evoking Dylan in delivery and story, the climax of the chorus summing up the feel of the record: the fugitive in these songs hasn’t run afoul of the law or a woman but flees from time itself. The inevitability of this failed attempt to escape gives the record a sense of fate and finality that is all consuming – ‘I’m Onto You’ reinforces this theme with its knowing wink at the forces that come to drag you down. While the entire album can be boiled down to the blues, Spencer P. Jones and the Escape Committee manage to vary tempo and feel enough to keep the listener between the speakers through the 12 tales on offer.
