 Truth Troubadour by Vic Sadot

Vic Sadot released a new 18 Song CD titled "Truth Troubadour" on CD Baby on December 2, 2016.  You can hit individual song buttons or “Preview Them All” to hear the songs. "Truth Troubadour" is the most acoustic and reflective CD that Vic Sadot has released. 17 of 18 of the songs have Vic on vocals and guitar, and some piano accordion. 

Eric Golub contributes his formidable talents on various stringed instruments, such as viola and violin, as well as a regular and a baritone ukulele. Rockin' Rob Sadot is featured on electric guitar on 3 of the songs. The lead-off song, Left My Mind, is the only rock song. Left My Mind has Dean A Banks on keyboards and Rob Rbeast Hunter on drums rocking it out on an old Joe Sadot song with Vic and Rob Sadot.

“Truth Troubadour” is the most acoustic and reflective CD of the four that Vic Sadot has listed at CD Baby: "Comin' Home (1997); "Broadsides & Retrospectives" (2005); "9/11 Truth & Justice Songs" (2011).

Some tracks on "Truth Troubadour" already have videos made for them people can watch them on "Vic Sadot" and "Truth Troubadour" YouTube channels. For example, “Full SpectrumDominance”, "Courage To Resist Free Chelsea Manning", and "In the Harbor of Love". "The Fog Watch" was adapted from a poem by Vic's Uncle George Reuter. The song takes you back into a time before we had paved roads, a time when it took farmers an over-night trek to deliver their harvest to the nearest local marketplace. 

Brothers Vic and Rob Sadot enjoy playing two songs written by their departed middle brother Joe Sadot (1978). They are Left My Mind and Lori, which features exquisite viola and ukulele improvisations from Eric Golub.
