Album Review: Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread by Michael Nau
Very Good, Based on 1 Critic
AllMusic - 70 Based on rating 7/10
For his third post-Cotton Jones solo LP, Michael Nau recorded all the tracks in one location for the first time. Setting up shop in co-producer Benny Yurco's apartment with his backing band spread throughout available rooms, the more collaborative spirit prompted him to pay tribute to bandmates with the title Michael Nau & the Mighty Thread. In all, eight guests contributed performances to the album, though core players included Yurco (lap steel, 12-string and electric guitars), Will Brown (various keys), and Houndstooth's Graeme Gibson (drums).
