    I bought Imaginary Appalachia and loved it. So I picked up Songs of the Plains. It's not bad, but it lacks the originality of Imaginary Appalachia.

    Anyone know if any of his other albums are more like Imaginary Appalachia?

    Thanks,
    Jeff.

    (In this vein the kind of stuff I like would include Tarbox Ramblers and Hillstomp, if that gives you any idea of what I'm looking for.)

    Jeff,

    I think you’ll have to regard Colter’s albums as their own animals so to speak. He’s a young man finding his voice. If there is a through-line in his albums its one of authenticity. Although I didn’t particularly enjoy Imaginary Appalachia, it shared a consistent sound with the two following albums.

    Western Swing and Other Punchy Songs also makes a ton of sense for him if you’ve every experienced a small town dance with a live band. This one required a few listens to grow on me.
