This is the title song from Dori Freeman’s new album – her fifth – which will be released on November 17th.  The song is a reflective reminisce on the early days of love, with rings proffered to a sound that’s part country and part folk and all delivered alongside Dori Freeman’s understated and yet expressive vocal.

Grounded in sharp songwriting and layered with electric guitar, organ, pedal steel, percussion, and vocal harmonies, the album ‘Do You Recall’ finds Freeman delivering tales about motherhood, marriage, and life in modern-day Appalachia.  The song taps a relaxed vibe, nothing is hurrying by here, and small scale memory making is the order of the day.  Oh, and it’s really nice.

Noting that the new album has a somewhat different musical palette to earlier releases, Dori Freeman has asserted that it is still true to her roots, saying “I want people to associate different things with Appalachia than what’s become the standard, you can’t define this area as one thing. I know my perspective on it, and I love sharing that perspective and representing Appalachia in my own way.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
