DNA CHAINS OF A ROGUE'S REPUTATION

 

Frank Trainor
DNA Chains Of A Rogue’s Reputation

Produced by Cory Bitner and Frank Trainor
In Depth Records [8 Selections – Playing time 33:06]

If you were listening to Canadian country music in the mid-1980’s you might recall the string of radio hits [You Sure Didn’t Waste Any Time / The Ring I Gave You / Hard Drivin’ Hana, Everybody Wants To Dance With You, from then Toronto based singer/songwriter Frank Trainor, whose first recognition came a decade earlier in 1973 when The Mercey Brothers recorded his song, Our Lovin’ Times. Trainor has since relocated to Calgary, Alberta, where he has continued to pursue his recording career with a series of ‘Musical Chapters’ covering all stages of his music catalog. One of the latest in the series is this DNA Chains Of A Rogue’s Reputation, featuring 8 new songs. Frank Trainor has always been a crafty songwriter, and has delivered his homegrown material with a crisp, heartfelt vocal style. Those attributes are still part of Trainor’s work, although his writing now seems a little more introspective and cerebral. The selections here are highlighted by the gritty country lament, County Line Signs; and a powerful country hurtin’ ballad in A Trail That Leads You Home; while the peculiar title to the album is found in the lyrics of the song, Long Gone Glory Bound Son. The album also features some variety in the bluesy numbers California and Where’d You Leave Your Heart, some folk-tinged sound in This Mighty Ragin’ River Of Love, and a soft ballad album closer in Love Is.

DNA Chains Of A Rogue’s Reputation was co-produced by Frank Trainor with Cory Bitner, and recorded at Trainor’s studios in Calgary.
