Mr Ed Bentleys awesomely thought provoking track " Who Was That Old Man " . "I donít usually rave about a song much but on hearing this one Iíll admit it did make me think. Itís not overtly Country but has an appealing laid back quality to it that keeps you listening musically itís sound nice haunting guitar ever present in the background but its just that in the background not in your face , where the song really shines is in the lyrics . Here Mr Bentley captures a moment in time perfectly painting a picture so vividly with words that in your minds eye you see the scenes perfectly clearly. That and Edís deep almost spoken vocal draws the listener in to want to hear more."
