No Small Thing
BirdsTale Records, 2008

I'm especially happy with this recording. It was an absolute thrill to work with Darol Anger again. The songs he arranged, I think, are among the stand-outs. Other collaborations were equally satisfying-Byron House, Joe Craven, Gabe Valla, Lis and Lon Williamson, Del Suggs and more, plus our talented band members and engineer. It was a little scary to do a recording of mostly my songs, but everyone was encouraging, and the response has been great. Rounding out the material are some of my favorite traditional songs and two perfectly complimentary cover songs by Steve Winwood and Cold Play. – .Enjoy! Lee

One kind Favor
BirdsTale Records, 2008

I loved the way this recording came together. The band really clicked with everything, and this was the beginning of our collaborations with Darol Anger and Byron House. The arrangements, especially of the traditional material, were really fun and challenging. The sound is more acoustic and more cohesive than ever, but there's still a lot of variety, from bluegrass to blues to ragtime to Dylan, and as always, a beautiful instrumental composition by Arvid Smith. - Lee

Wind horses
Binky Records, 2002

This recording marked the beginning of inspiring collaborations with Lis and Lon Williamson, Del Suggs and others, and most importantly with engineer, Pete Winter, at Winterstone Productions.

We used a full and talented band on most of it for a richer, more Americana sound. Arvid's guitar playing stands out-acoustic, electric, slide, fingerstyle and sonic effects on material that ranges from world music to the Civil War, from medieval France to the seals of Ireland. Stylistically, it's all over the place, but somehow, it makes perfect sense!
Let us know!

Third Week's a Lighnin" CD cover

Third Weeks A' Lighnin'
Binky Records, 1996

Facing the reality of audience preference for a more acoustic sound is the thread that runs throughout our sophomore release. Third Weeks got us pegged as a Celtic-ish band and small wonder with the tunes here- the stark Irish tinker tune “The Well Below The Valley” and Lee’s ancestral dialect fueling the gruesome “Twa Corbies” (“Two Crows”) . Contrast that with the “Blackjack Davey” - speed thrash guitar. We were pleased to open the Tom Waits songbook for the first time, too, with “Briar and The Rose”. Third Weeks also debuted yet another Lee Hunter gem, “Practice Resurrection”, which we wore out over the years. It remains a perfect record and I can’t say enough good things about it.

Roll Down Thy Window
Binky Records, 1995

As the saying goes, you spend your life preparing for your first recording. Such was the case for the first CD. Self-released under the Tory Voodoo name it was our take on what has come to be a very appealing approach to folk interpretation.

Atmospherics abound with the use of altered guitar effects-reverse reverb, bowing etc- predating what would be known as “psyche folk” by a good ten years. Roll Down Thy Window sounds as fresh today as when it was envisioned.
Arvid Smith
