Camelot Falling

If you're going to open your album by taking on a song as sublime as Van Morrison's transcendent "Into the Mystic," you'd better have something to add to it. But Oklahoma singer/songwriter (and former Great Divide leader) Mike McClure replaces Van's ecstatic emotion with raspy-voiced earnestness and turns the tune into the same kind of middling, well-intentioned country-rock that fills out the rest of his third solo CD. A version of Neil Young's "Roll Another Number" reinforces Mike's inarguable good taste, but the originals here don't make much of an impression.
