Second-Hand Store (Friends Edition) The CD contains 11 original songs, most in a country, americana or rootsy vein, although there are a few crossover pop surprises and one French-language number. Comparaisons with other artists have brought up names like John Hiatt, Randy Newman, Trout Fishing in America and Bruce Guthro, The sessions for this album have seen the cream of the Ottawa Valley's country and roots musicians populate it's tracks. Steel player Al Bragg has played with Carol Baker, the Family Brown, Terry Carisse and South Mountain and he puts down some unbelievable tracks on David's album, while Ball and Chain's Michael Ball does a masterful job of accompanying him on the violin. Contemporary folk artist Christine Graves adds harmonies and various Ottawa Folklore Centre alumni colour the album with all manner of guitars: resonator (dobro), baritone, electric and acoustic. Each production choice of the artist and of co-producer René Gely (including string arrangements featuring classical musicians)seemed to raise the quality bar ever-higher. When you buy Second Hand Store (Friends Edition) you will also receive the official, digipack version of Second Hand Store, which includes a dance remix of the title tune, among other enhancements.
