chet Chelsea Silver, Please Come Home (CD, £11.95)label: Absolutely Kosher
This is an album that grapples with the needs of the heart and soul. These songs are about loving someone in spite of their flaws. This is an album of love and drink. One of Canada's greatest living songwriters is a vineyard field hand and postal worker living in rural Western Canada. Ryan Beattie has been quietly making music in the city of Victoria (on Vancouver Island), playing guitar in critical favourites Frog Eyes and recording both solo as Himalayan Bear and with Chet, the band he formed with his brother Patrick and some friends. Chelsea Silver, Please Come Home is Chet's fourth album in seven years and first to receive release outside of western Canada.
