Richard Youngs presents his debut recording for BaDaBing Records, and the label is looking forward to a long relationship. For Summer Through My Mind, Youngs pushes himself into a challenging new sphere yet again. A renowned musician with over 40 albums to his name, he goes somewhere he never has before - to the heart of American music. Summer Through My Mind is a country music album, warped through Youngs's ambidextral mind. A warning: it's not like any country album one has heard before. There are familiar elements scattered about - slide-guitar, heartfelt vocals, dark lyricism - but these pieces exist like alienated rocks from a planetary explosion of long ago. The discomfited guitar lines create patchy connections, and Youngs's unmistakable singing seals things right up. The album draws together a story Youngs wrote as a child, involving bad people and dark spirits ('Story of Jhon' which has a vocal contribution from Simon Joyner), with some lyrics written by his own six-year-old son.
