The Ballantrae Bonanza -White Boy With a Feather

The final installment in the Ballantrae Bonanza series and the second random choice  was Jason Downs with White Boy with a Feather.
Let's face it who wouldn't be tempted with an album cover and title like that?
It just goes to show that appearances can be deceptive.
What part of a mix of country and rap strikes you as a good idea?
Some folk appear to differ. In the 6 Amazon customer reviews there are four 5 star reviews, one 4 star review and one 1 star review. I'm firmly in the later camp.

It has to be said that the song Cherokee (reflecting his Native American heritage) is not bad. Originally I did not get that far having listened to the title track which starts the album and about 30 seconds of the second track.
It has already gone back for some other poor unsuspecting soul.

  1. I'm listening to Cherokee, it reminds me of that song "Misty" (was that Ray Stevens?). I'm also waiting for the singer to break into a rap but after 2 minutes I don't think it's going to happen.

  2. The first 46 seconds of White Boy With A Feather were very promising.....then that idiotic shouting started, completely ruing the song

    1. Agreed
      What little I listened to was mostly like that
