A honkey-tonk, thigh-slapper of a record from a man on a mission to shed demons & write a right rollicking ditty or two in the process.

shortly before the recording of ‘rock bottom rhapsody’ began, lafarge experienced a spiritual awakening — and the faith he re-embraced in his hour of darkness helped to buoy him through the making of the album. musically, lafarge continues to mix and match a wide variety of styles and traditions, while never losing track of his own vision. Says LaFarge “this record is kind of like roy orbison and bob dylan hanging out with chanson singers and french jazz bands in like the forties, but i was never trying to make it sound like a particular person.” “LaFarge sings in many voices and you can hear Elvis and the great Roy Orbison, a touch of Bob Dylan and crooners, lots of crooners. But in the end, it’s quintessential Pokey. I love it!” 4/5 - The Arts Desk
