Burnside Album Details
Minkler, Gary, Little Trailer Ruby
Gary Minkler is a Seattle guy, singer for the legendary and occasionally revived Northwest band Red Dress. For his first solo album he steps away from their James Brown meets Beefheart sound for something a bit more soulful, perhaps a taste of Van Morrison if recorded by Tom Waits and Frank Zappa. The album is a marvelous collection of words and music that gives listeners a deep glimpse into the mind of Seattle's most musical poet. It grows with each listen. Produced by Conrad Uno, the mastermind behind classic albums by The Presidents of the United States, the Fastbacks and the Young Fresh Fellows, Little Trailer Ruby will thrill the longtime fans and win over the hearts, minds and ears of those who are new to Gary Minkler.
