Amos Garrett: Perfume and Tobacco
If you know the name of Amos Garrett, you may know him as the player of the guitar solo on Maria Muldaur’s hit Midnight at the Oasis. I hope you know more than that, because Garrett has much more to offer. He has done studio work for Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, and Paul Butterfield, just to name a few. But Garrett also has had a fine career recording under his own name. He has been in a number of bands, large and small, loud and soft. But here we find him singing in a fine and mellow baritone, playing some of the sweetest acoustic guitar you would ever care to hear, and accompanied only by a stand-up bass. That’s all that Garrett needs to shine. Perfume and Tobacco has the beauty of a smoke ring. Enjoy.
