Culpeper's Orchard is the debut album by the Danish Hard Rock/Blues Band Culpeper's Orchard.
The album can be described as a 42 minutes Guitar jam. The Guitar, which draws huge influences from Clapton, keeps soloing like there's no tomorrow. The album didn't get almost any recognition internationally unfortunately. Although the album is Danish the lyrics are all in English and you don't even notice that English is not their language.
"Banjocul" is quite funny. A very short song composed of a Banjo and some vocals. From what i knew about this record, Country Folk was quite different from the sound of the band so I thought the download was wrong. It wasn't wrong, this song was probably made to scare people. "Mountain Music Part 1" is an incredible jam. It starts with a quiet Guitar line, only to develop into an insane Solo. "Hey You People" is quite similar to "Banjocul", but this time with a Simon & Garfunkel sonority. My favourite part of "Teaparty For An Orchard" are the vocals. The lyrics are also awesome, very surreal. 'Marie Antoinette has lost her head' is epic. "Ode To Resistance" has a very good Flute work on it, the music is very calm and groovy until it enters an heavier zone, full of Guitars soloing and screaming Vocals. The Riff sounds like a Southern Rock one, sounding like a Lynyrd Skynyrd song. "Your Song & Mine" apart from the Guitar (obvious) has a fantastic rhythm. Great Guitar Solo. The Vocals in "Gideon's Trap" have a very cool effect, this song is very good. "Mountain Music Part 2" is the last song. The continuation of the second song. This song has a much Bluesier sound than the ones before.
The Cover-Art is very weird. It was the reason for me to download it nonetheless.
