Excellent acoustic guitar based tunes – a baker’s dozen – from Scottish / San Diegan, Colin Clyne. Doricana features production from Alan Sanderson (Rolling Stones, Burt Bacharach) and a serious group of San Diego All – Stars, including Flogging Molly’s Matt Hensley, Larry Grano and Rick Nash (Eve Selis Band), Tim Foley and Enrique Platas (Skelpin), session legend Dennis Caplinger and opera singer Victoria Robertson. It sounds amazing, with tunes matching production and musicianship. My favorites are the melancholic Neil Finn-ish ballad “Into My Garden,” and the lightly rockin’ “Pockets and Envelopes,” both as radio friendly as it gets, but this is a solid selection of tunes across the board..
