Ghost Town


Spooked

Marley's Ghost: SpookedSpooked  is the Ghost's eighth album, produced by the legendary Van Dyke Parks, composer/arranger for hundreds of Warner Brother’s artists and producer of albums by Ry Cooder, Randy Newman, and the late Phil Ochs.
“Spooked” is a beautifully crafted album which serves as a tribute to the sounds the 20th Century cut its teeth on. Spooked” is riddled with Parks’ particular genius for tuning and arranging. His detailed attention to the expression of the instruments allows for even greater emotional resonance from the group, and his interweaving of styles by the order of song shows an incredible gift for storytelling. In a way, listening to Marley’s Ghost is akin to reading a selection of short essays from Mark Twain.” – Larry Sakin, MyTown.ca

Four Spacious Guys

Four Spacious Guys Released in 1996

"Marley's Ghost can turn on a dime, change their stripes and move as fast as any band in America. When we all got together to talk about what kind of record to make (because they could make many) a wonderful image became our guide: a thin mist, tall fir trees, dappled light, smoke rising from a chimney, the sound of the river in the distance and, inside, a few good friends making music. So take a batch of bluegrass and Old Time String Band music, add in some fine songwriting, some Cajun and Celtic spice and great harmony singing and you'll be well on your way to knowing what this record is all about... Four Spacious Guys playing the music they love." –

"Winner of the honorable mention NAIRD Indies award for Best Gospel Album of 1992. Here is one of the most gratifying gospel collections that one would ever want to encounter. Indicative of their remarkable talent, it is a continuation of the Ghost's tradition transcending the realm of ordinary gospel outings. Guest artists Barney McClure and Michael Shrieve lend their spirits and singular talents to material ranging from the Golden Gate Quartet and Soulstirrers to the Carter Family and Ralph Stanley. Interpreted with distinct passion and zeal, this musical delicacy is a truly special collection with a welcome message of inspiration." –
