An aggressive, acoustic band out of Pittsburgh, PA, Rusted Root slowly built a fan base with years of continuous touring. They released an independent record, “Cruel Sun,” but it wasn’t until 1994 that they released “When I Woke,” their major label debut. Driven by pure spiritual energy, “When I Woke” will awaken your soul to a deeper appreciation of life.
The album begins with “Drum Trip,” a three-and-a-half minute track of drums, congas, other percussion instruments that will leave you dancing. It runs into “Ecstasy,” my favorite and the most energetic song on the album. It is
followed by “Send Me On My Way,” the song that earned the band some national publicity. Track after track the band explores endless musical possibilities. From the countryish “Rain” to the African sounding “Back To The Earth,” a wide variety of genres are present. The only thing this album lacks is a bad song.
I like every song and think they
are all hit material.
The band’s talents are far too vast to comprehend with just one listening of the album. The more you listen, the more the intricate melodies and powerful lyrics will become visible. Using altered guitar tunings, Mike Glabicki, singer and guitarist, writes songs with lyrics that will stick in your head for days.
My love for Rusted Root grew even more after seeing them in concert at the H.O.R.D.E. Festival. They put so much energy into their music that you can’t help but let your own energy pour into the flowing rhythms.
If you’ve never heard of Rusted Root I highly recommend you check out this album. It will leave you in awe and you’ll rush to the nearest store to get it. “When I Woke” will quickly become a staple in your musical collection..
