Al Tuck

Under Your Shadow (New Scotland)

Recorded in six locales, Under Your Shadow may be the definitive Al Tuck album. A dose of his impish humour lies in “Hello, Prince Edward Island,” though it requires a G-man’s diligence to make out some of the lyrics from the rollicking Summerside show. The title song and “Ducktown” offer a taste of the impeccably luxuriant slow groove his shows can achieve. Hearts will melt as he compares his daughter’s waking eyes to “every day winning the Stanley Cup.” The pastor’s son drops in an electrified hymn as a bonus. A unique voice in every sense, Tuck spreads warmth and wisdom over the path where lust and rage once ran raw.
