Cousin Harley, It's A Sin
"It’s A Sin is the first CD in four years from Vancouver’s Cousin Harley, and touted as the best one yet. With the exception of two obscure covers, the seamless amalgam of rockabilly, surf, spaghetti western themes, Tex-Mex and western swing were all penned by Paul Pigat. It’s A Sin is firmly rooted in the era that Paul Pigat likes the best — a time when guitar virtuosity was taken to a stratospheric level and music lovers expected no less. The seemingly effortless way that Pigat attacks such complex material is nothing short of astounding. “But he’s also a guitar scholar ... and that makes It’s A Sin a serious pleasure for those of us who care about such things. Others, though, may just call it a whole lot of twangy, revved-up fun” — The Georgia Straight (Vancouver, BC) "
