The Inner Flame: A Tribute To Ranier Ptacek

Release Notes

· “Highlights range from Emmylou Harris’ sepulchral rendition of ‘The Good Book’ with Rainer providing instrumental support, to a blistering finale of ‘Powder Keg’ that finds Buffalo Tom’s Bill Janovitz fronting Giant Sand.” No Depression
· “Specializing in the Dobro and the National steel guitar and finding his own unique blend of folk and blues, Ptacek exhibited a rare feel as a guitarist and songwriter.” PopMatters
