Bishop, Elvin - can't even do wrong right [2014]
Blueslegende Elvin Bishop, Gründungsmitglied er Original Paul Butterfield Blues Band, ,ot einem neuen, großartigen Album über das das berühmte "Guitar World"-Magazin schreibt: "Rousing, down-home, feel-good music with spunky rhythms and razor-sharp slide. Bishop's a superb guitarist of great strength and skill - a rockin' good time". Viele Experten bezeichnen "Can't even do wrong right" gar als eines der besten Alben seiner Karriere.

Hier die Original-Produktbeschreibung:

Legendary blues guitarist/songwriter/vocalist Elvin Bishop returns to Alligator Records with CAN'T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT. With his ''so-loose-they're-tight'' road band behind him, along with friends Charlie Musselwhite and Mickey Thomas, Bishop has created one of the best albums of his career. CAN'T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT finds Bishop playing, writing and singing some of the most spirited and distinctive blues and roots music today. The CD proves that Bishop is as vital and creative an artist now as he was when he first hit the national scene in 1965 with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. He is as slyly good-humored and instantly crowd-pleasing as he was when he was scoring Southern rock-styled hits during the 1970s. For five decades, he has never stopped touring or releasing instantly recognizable music featuring his groundbreaking playing, easygoing vocals, witty lyrics and good-time humor.
CAN'T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT, with hilariously spot-on cover art by musician/artist Paul Thorn, finds Bishop firing on all cylinders and having fun while doing it. With this album, Bishop has created another highlight in a career that covers fifty years and over 20 albums. Five of the songs are Bishop originals, including ''Let Your Woman Have Her Way,'' on which Bishop's friend Mickey Thomas sings lead (this is the first time Thomas, the ex-Jefferson Starship singer, has recorded with Bishop since he provided vocals on Bishop's classic hit ''Fooled Around And Fell In Love''). An outstanding instrumental version of Jimmy Reed's ''Honest I Do'' harkens back to Elvin's childhood: this was the very first blues song he heard coming from Nashville's WLAC, the late night 50,000 watt powerhouse R&B radio station, beaming all the way to his Oklahoma home. In the 1950s in Oklahoma, everything was racially separated except the radio (''They couldn't segregate the airwaves,'' Bishop recalls). With the addition of his Grammy Award-winning pal Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica on ''Old School'' and ''No More Doggin ,'' CAN'T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT hits its target at every turn.
As Bishop continues to tour and release new music, his stature continues to grow. Through the years his music has appeared in film and television, including the 1997 use of She Puts Me In The Mood (from his Alligator album Big Fun) in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. In 2005 he performed on the internationally televised Grammy Awards broadcast alongside Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Gretchen Wilson, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers' guitarist Dickey Betts. He recently appeared in the documentary Born In Chicago. In 2012 and 2013 he was nominated for inclusion into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band.
Now, with CAN'T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT, Bishop again is ready to share his happy-go-lucky vibe with his fans around the world. His triple-threat guitar/vocal/songwriting talent, along with his ability to deliver a rollicking good time wherever he goes, assures his not-to-be-missed live performances are consistently packed to the gills with cheering fans. The Chicago Tribune says Bishop plays ''good-time music guaranteed to put a smile on your face...serious playing, potent slide guitar and razor-sharp licks.''

Civil Wars, The - same [2013]
Sehnlichst erwartetes Follow-Up des grandiosen Americana-/Singer-Songwriter-/Alternative Country-/Folk Rock-Duos Joy Williams und John Paul White zu dem mit 3 Grammys dekorierten, frenetisch gefeierten Debut "Barton hollow". The Civil Wars machen genau da weiter, wo sie mit ihrem Vorgänger aufgehört haben. Songmaterial und Performance sind exzellent!

Kurze Original-Produktinfo:
The Civil Wars' highly anticipated sophomore self-titled album is the follow up to the three-time Grammy Award-winning duo's acclaimed debut, Barton Hollow.
The Civil Wars was recorded in Nashville between August 2012 and January 2013. Charlie Peacock was once again at the helm as producer for the album. Additionally, Rick Rubin produced the duo's performance for the track "I Had Me a Girl" in August of 2011. Peacock later completed the track by producing the instrumentation and mix.

Exklusives "Track by Track"-Review zu allen Stücken des Albums von Joy Williams:

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

This song pays homage to regret. Nearly everybody I've come across has somebody in their life that they wonder what life would be like if they'd never met that person. It's that sliding-door moment -- in the blink of an eye everything could change. Either for the positive or the negative.
John Paul and I wrote this song in the screened-in porch of my and Nate's new home. I remember warm breezes blowing, a mild day. I had recently had my son, Miles, who happened to be asleep with Nate in the living room, right next to the porch. I remember asking John Paul to play quietly so he didn't wake up the baby.

I HAD ME A GIRL

This song always conjures up an image of a glass of whiskey and a lit cigarette. It's a little brooding. A little dangerous. It smolders. It has swagger and grit. It's full of innuendo and Southern Gothic tones. I love the feel of this track, and the way this song came together on the record. "I Had Me a Girl" is one of those musical moments that makes me wish I knew how to play electric guitar. Or any guitar, for that matter.

SAME OLD SAME OLD

This song, to me, represents the ache of monogamy. This isn't an "I'm leaving you" song. It's a vulnerable confession of "I don't want to leave. I want to work on this -- with you." Having said that, someone once told me a story about long-term relationships: to think of them as a continent to explore. I could spend a lifetime backpacking through Africa, and I would still never know all there is to know about that continent. To stay the course, to stay intentional, to stay curious and connected -- that's the heart of it. But it's so easy to lose track of the trail, to get tired, to want to give up, or to want a new adventure. It can be so easy to lose sight of the goodness and mystery within the person sitting right in front of you. That continent idea inspires me, and makes the ache when it comes hurt a little less. To know that it happens to all of us. What I'm realizing now is that sometimes the "same old same old" can actually be rich, worthwhile and a great adventure.

DUST TO DUST

This song is an anthem for the lonely. Sometimes you come across somebody who thinks they are hiding their pain, but if we are all honest, nobody is very good at it. "You're like a mirror, reflecting me. Takes one to know one, so take it from me.” When John Paul and I wrote this late one night in Birmingham, England, we decided to change the pronoun at the end of the song. We wanted to represent that we all experience loneliness in our lives.

EAVESDROP

We brought in our producer, Charlie Peacock, on this song. He helped with arrangements and really helped take the song to a totally different place. Sometimes as an artist, you can't see what needs re-arranging when you're so "in it." Charlie brought perspective. Almost like an eavesdrop within an "Eavesdrop."
Strangely enough, this song always reminds me that my voice has changed since the last album. I have my son to thank for that, truly. When I was first pregnant and performing on the road, I thought something was wrong with my voice. I was having a hard time hitting high notes, while my low notes kept getting deeper and deeper. I did some research with the help of a vocal coach, and learned that hormone levels affect a female singing range. Having a boy, naturally, upped my testosterone levels, making low notes easier to hit and higher notes harder to reach. But the great thing? After having Miles, I regained my high range AND have kept my low range. Pregnancy literally changed the makeup of my vocal cords. There's a different timbre to it now, and I love that I can hear the story of my son in my singing.

DEVIL'S BACKBONE

This song is our take on an Americana murder ballad. It's dark, prickly, anxious. It was fun writing because we just imagined some dust-bowl scenario, a broke-down town, and a man awaiting being hung for something he did in the name of trying to provide for his family. The woman who loves him is watching him standing there on the gallows.
This song always reminds me of when the melody first came to mind. I was doing my makeup in the tiled bathroom upstairs, with my newborn Miles in a yellow rocking bassinet next to me. I started singing, and turned on the voice memo app on my iPhone so I wouldn't forget it. As I sang, Miles started cooing along with me. Not on pitch, mind you, but I'd move a note, and he'd move a note. I'm never deleting that voice memo. It's become one of my favorites.

FROM THIS VALLEY

That's our Grand Ole Opry song. A new spiritual. It's actually the oldest song written on the album. We wrote it before Barton Hollow came out. Even though we didn't have our own recording of it, we started performing it live and it became a fan favorite. It made sense to finally put it on an album. One of my favorite moments on stage every night was singing the a cappella part together.

TELL MAMA

We recorded the performance at Fame studio in Muscle Shoals, a place we'd written a few songs before that made it onto Barton Hollow. I always felt the musical ghosts in that studio, one of whom was the great Etta James. We're a band that's known for covering songs live in our own way, and we thought it would be fun to take a stab at "Tell Mama." I found out later that where we recorded was the same room she recorded her version. That might explain why I kept getting goosebumps.

OH HENRY

We wrote it one week before Barton Hollow, in the mountains of Salt Lake City during our first Sundance Festival. We conjured up a story about a woman who was married to a philandering man. She is begging her man to level with her, and letting him know she can only take so much, a la "it's gonna kill me or it's gonna kill you."

DISARM

Again, we're the band who loves to do covers. Both John Paul and I have always been huge Smashing Pumpkins fans. Nate mentioned it might be a cool cover, and we actually wound up working it out the same day that we wrote "Oh Henry" up in Salt Lake City for Sundance. It turned into another on-stage staple that people asked for every night. We found out later from his then-manager that Billy dug it.

SACRED HEART

We wrote this song in a flat in Paris, with the Eiffel Tower in full view on a cold night. Tall windows, Victorian furniture, and somehow the atmosphere of all of that seeped into the song. Nate and our friends were there in the room as we wrote, all of us drinking wine together. I also loved getting to try out my flawed French. I wrote what words I knew in French, and then had a Parisian friend named Renata Pepper (yes, that's her real name) look it over later and help me translate. When we recorded the song for the album, I called in a French professor from Vanderbilt named Becky Peterson, who has now become a good friend.

D'ARLINE

We wrote this song in the studio behind my house in Nashville, on a warm summer day, with the windows and doors open. This song is a sweet lament, of loss and the belief that you'll never be able to love anybody else again. I stumbled across "Letters of Note" on Twitter, and was struck by the title of a letter written by a famous physicist named Richard Feynman: "I love my wife. My wife is dead." A little over a year after her death, he wrote his wife a love letter and sealed it. It was written in 1946, and wasn't opened until after his death in 1988. He ended his note to his long-lost wife with "Please excuse my not mailing this -- but I don't know your new address."
Another aside to this song: While we were recording the song together, John Paul and I could hear crows cawing in the background that I've since named Edgar, Allen and Poe. This recording and performance of the song is the first and only in existence, a work tape recorded simply on my iPhone.

Ten Toes Up - paper house [2013]
Seit einigen Jahren folgt dieser Band eine ungemein loyale Anhängerschaft, die dieser 4-köpfigen Truppe aus dem kleinen Küstenstädtchen Murrells Inlet in South Carolina zu einem mittlerweile in Fachkreisen höchst angesehenen Standing in der Rootsrock-, Southern Rock-, und Jamrock-Szene verholfen hat. Nun präsentieren Ten Toes Up ihr neues Stusioalbum "Paper house" - ein baumstarkes Werk, das dieses Standing noch entscheidend festigen wird. "The band embodies the Carolina sound - a mix of the The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, and the The Allman Brothers - but ultimately, all Ten Toes Up", beschreibt ein amerikanischer Journalist den Sound der Truppe. Damit hat er zweifellos recht, doch darüber hinaus muss man weitere Einflüsse von Leuten wie The Band, JJ Cale, Grateful Dead, nicht grassige The String Cheese Incident und auch The Marshall Tucker Band attestieren (zumal Frontmann BJ Craven aus deren Heimat Spartanburg stammt). Aus all diesen Bezügen kreieren die Vier einen ganz eigenen Sound irgendwo an der Schnittstelle zwischen Jamrock, Rootsrock und Southern Rock, kombiniert mit wunderbar integrierten Seventies Funk-Elementen und einem gewissen "blue-eyed blues of the Allman Brothers". Eine großartige "dual-drumming rhythm section" (Adam Miller - drums, Joshua Gregory - percussion) und die satten Gitarren von BJ Craven (gleichzeitig exzellenter Sänger und Haupt-Songwriter der Truppe) bestimmen vorwiegend das Geschehen (vierter im Bunde ist am Bass Charles Freeman). Die Band spielt sehr flüssig und kraftvoll, setzt auf diesem Album auf sehr kompaktes Songmaterial voller eingängiger Strukturen und hervorragender Melodien, agiert mit spürbarer Spielfreude, viel Herz, viel Spirit und herrlichen Grooves. Das deutliche Jam-Feeling, das sie live sicherlich voll und ganz ausleben, ist allgegenwertig.. Die Burschen verstehen ihr musikalisches Handwerk und gelten in ihrer Heimat als herausragende Live-Band. Stellvertretend für die durchweg hervorragenden Songs (es gibt absolut keine "Filler" und schon gar keine Ausfälle) seien solcher "Killer-Nummern" wie der straighte, riffige, knackige, voller Southern Rock-Esprit steckende, sehr dynamische, mit fetten Gitarren und famoser Percussion in Szene gesetzte Opener "Jesse James" (würde auch bestens in das Anforderungsprofil von Widespread Panic passen), der wunderbar funkige, dennoch schön flüssige Jamrocker "The real thing" (feine Orgel-Fills), das von satten Riffs und quirligen Lead Gitarren durchzogene "Peased to meet you", der ein dezentes "Can't you see"-Feeling aufkommen lassende und damit ein wenig an The Marshall Tucker Band erinnernde, astreine, von wunderbaren Gitarrenlinien und einer tollen Melodie bestimmte Southern Rocker "Sing to you", der ebenfalls sehr melodische Roots-/Southern-/Jamrocker "River" (wundervolle Percussion, feine Gitarren), sowie das irgendwo zwischen Santana und den Allmans angesiedelte, von klasse Lead Gitarren und kerniger Percussion bestimmte Instrumental "The aqueeze" erwähnt. Ten Toes Up sind eine Band, die die Genre-Fans unbedingt auf dem Schirm haben sollten. Das Potential der Truppe ist riesig. Hier darf man sicher noch einiges erwarten. "Paper house" jedenfall ist ein tolles, frisches, lebendiges Album geworden, an dem es absolut nicht zu mäkeln gibt. Ganz großartig!
