"[Brent Cobb] is devoted to the concrete existence and mythology of small-town ways of life, but he has a modest way of expressing it on Shine On Rainy Day. Cobb has been linked to the celebrated tradition of the countrified poet, whose archetype is Kris Kristofferson. But it's illuminating to think of Cobb as belonging to a less-documented lineage — one that includes Bobbie Gentry, who framed her deft Southern Gothic narratives with a sultry, caressing delivery and sophisticatedly earthy arrangements, and Tony Joe White, who's spun tales of backwoods characters with swampy coolness. Gentry and White themselves have been joined by subsequent generations of rooted, rhythmically attuned singer-songwriters like Shelby Lynne and Anthony Hamilton. [...] Cobb recorded this album with his cousin, the white-hot Nashville producer Dave Cobb, and together they've arrived at the muggy easefulness, wilting syncopation and rawboned trimmings that suited the songs. Brent sheepishly admits to having felt skepticism upon meeting Dave at a family funeral some time back; after all, this was the relative who'd run off to make a name for himself in the music industry of Los Angeles. The musical model that made more sense to Brent was the one he'd learned from his dad, in which players fix people's busted appliances all week long, then entertain those same folks at the bar on the weekend. As a kid, Cobb couldn't tell the difference between the covers in his dad's repertoire and his dad's originals — one of which, the classic pining-for-the-comfort-of-home number "Country Bound," Cobb includes on Shine On Rainy Day. The message is perfectly clear: No matter where he currently hangs his hat, his music emerged from and still belongs to a particular pastoral community, and that's the source of its imaginative substance." - NPR

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
