"You Could Be Lonely, Crying In Your Beer......Or Love Could Keep You Strong...that's a little refrain from the excellent song by Curtis Becraft and The Dilettantes ... "Long Long Time".
“CURTIS AND THE DILETTANTES DEBUT ALBUM REVIEW: "Tales of a Traveler": "Seemingly inspired by country and jazz as well as blues, this eclectic album nonetheless retains a coherent structure that embraces each and every song." ... "the variety of songs, instruments and musicians make it an exciting journey"..."With an amazing ensemble... the album's 'big band' feel introduces the listener to an array of talent that can seldom be sampled all at once." "As a debut album, it's gold; as a work of art, it moves and grooves like the titular traveler." "The Examiner.com system only allows whole stars; this album should get 4.5.”
