Dove with Claws CD

Dove with Claws CD Release on November 11, 2016

“The late Johnny Cash coined the phrase “a dove with claws” to describe the fierce pacifism that grew from his first-hand look at America’s endless wars while entertaining soldiers in Vietnam. Cash’s words are a perfect description of the life and work of Larry Long.

“Long’s music had an indelible influence on a young cousin from Iowa who became the charting rock artist, Melvin James. Now Larry and Melvin have joined forces. The claws of Melvin’s guitar sharpen the urgency of Long’s message in a way that will surprise you. And delight you. And take your breath away.

“Larry Long started making great records a long time ago. Dove With Claws is the latest in a long string of victories.”
