Cook, Elizabeth - welder [2010]
Großartiges Werk von Elizabeth Cook, mit dem sie einerseits durchaus wieder auf den Spuren traditioneller Countryklänge, wie sie es auf dem 2007 erschienenen Vorgänger "Balls" zelebrierte, wandelt (ihre Einflüsse von Dolly Parton sind eindeutig spürbar), sich andererseit aber immer mehr in Richtung Roots, Americana und Alternate Country entwickelt. Dabei lässt sie sich offenbar sehr stark von der großen Lucinda Williams inspirieren, deren Terrain sie, wie auch das solcher Kolleginnen und Kollegen wie Buddy & Julie Miller, Allison Moorer, Rodney Crowell und Rosanne Cash, immer wieder äusserst kompetent betritt. Cook verfügt über eine immense Ausstrahlung. Dazu ist das Songmaterial einfach große Klasse. Highlights, wie beispielsweise der rockige, spröde Rootsrocker "El Camino" mit seinem satten "All I wanna do"-Groove (nur viel "dreckiger" und nicht so poppig wie bei Sheryl Crow - dafür ungemein "cool"), die wunderbare Americana-Ballade "Not California" mit ihren feinen Steelguitar-Fills (Background Gesang: Rodney Crowell), der freche, raue, Party-taugliche, stimmungsvolle Roadhouse Country-Tonker "Yes to booty", die staub trockene Ballade "Blackland farmer" (ein baumstarkes Frankie Miller-Cover), das straight rockende, von kernigen, satten E-Gitarren-Riffs getragene "Rock N Roll man", die schöne, flotte, traditionelle Countrynummer "Snake in the bed" oder der gemeinsam mit Dwight Yoakam vorgetragene, urige Barroom Honky Tonker "I'll never know", zeigen überaus eindrucksvoll, welch grenzenloses Potenzial in der Singer/Songwriterin aus Wildwood/Florida steckt. Begleitet wird sie von einer exzellenten Band, angeführt von ihrem Ehemann Tim Carroll (Gitarren, Banjo, Harmonica, Background Gesang). Produziert hat das Album niemand geringeres als Don Was. Eindeutig Elizabeth Cook's bislang abwechslungsreichstes, individuellstes und innovativstes, aber vielleicht auch ihr natürlichstes Werk - und ganz klar eines ihrer besten! Tolle Scheibe - weit weg vom Nashville-Mainstream!

Garcia, Jerry - garcia live vol. 3: december 14-15, 1974 northwest tour [2013]
3 CD-Set! Teil 3 der neuen GarciaLive-Reihe - und wieder ist es ein Fest für die Jerry Garcia-Gemeinde und die Deadheads. Mitgeschnitten am 14 Dezember 1974 im Paramount Theatre von Portland/OR und am 15. Dezember 1974 im EMU Ballroom von Eugene/OR, enthält dieses 3 CD-Set über 2 1/2 Stunden bisher unveröffentlichter Konzertaufnahmen von Garcia's vielleicht experimentier- und improvisationsfreudigen, fantastischen Projekt "Legion Of Mary". Tolles Teil!

Legion Of Mary waren:

Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band) - guitar, vocals
Merl Saunders (Miles Davis, B.B. King, Garcia/Saunders) - keyboards, vocals
John Kahn (Jerry Garcia Band. Al Kooper, John Lee Hooker) - bass
Martin Fierro (Zero, James Cotton, Quicksilver Messenger Service) - saxophone
Ron Tutt (Elvis, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash) - drums

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Three: December 14-15, 1974 Northwest Tour celebrating one of Jerry’s most experimental, improvisational and revered projects: Legion of Mary. Scheduled for release on October 15, 2013, GarciaLive Volume Three presents highlights from two winter 1974 performances captured during what is thought to be Legion of Mary’s first tour featuring the core lineup of Garcia, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, Martin Fierro and Ron Tutt.
Garcia’s voice and playing sound inspired and youthful while Saunders drives the soul with the organ and his gruff, husky singing voice, effortlessly paired with Kahn’s and Tutt’s steady rhythm and Fierro’s perfectly textured brass playing. The music more than delivers with the musical baton being passed around effortlessly, with leads chasing leads and the musicians following one another gracefully as evidenced on tracks like the hard-driving “Mystery Train” where the musician’s solos dance and sway with each other.

Guy, Buddy - rhythm & blues [2013]
2 CD-Set! 3 Jahre nach den Grammy-dekorierten "Living proof" veröffentlicht Meistergitarrist und lebende Blues-Legende Buddy Guy sein neues Album, und zwar gleich eine Doppel-CD. Bereits im Vorfeld wird "Rhythm & Blues" als eine weitere, absolute musikalische Sternstunde in der langen Karriere Guy's gefeiert, und die ersten Reviews bestätigen diese Vorschußlorbeeren nachdrücklich. Ein paar der Songs des neuen Werkes hat der Meister mit einigen hochkarätigen Gästen eingespielt, was einmal mehr seine einzigartige Verbindung zwischen Tradition und Moderne offenbart. Mit dabei waren der neue, junge Guitarhero des Blues, Gary Clark jr., Beth Hart, aber auch genrefremde Größen wie Keith Urban, Kid Rock und Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, Joe Perry und Brad Whitford. Produziert hat sein langjähriger Weggefährte Tom Hambridge! Der ewig junge Buddy Guy befindet auch mit 76 Jahren noch in der Blüte seiner Karriere. Großartig!

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

Six-time Grammy Award winner and 2012 Kennedy Center Honoree Buddy Guy will release his new studio album Rhythm & Blues. The follow-up to his 2010 Grammy Award winning album Living Proof, this double-disc masterpiece features first time studio collaborations with A-list artists Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart and Aerosmith members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford. Rhythm & Blues will be available for pre-order at all online retailers on June 25th.
Produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge (Skin Deep, Living Proof), Rhythm & Blues captures the 76 year-young Guy at the peak of his creativity. Replete with heartfelt vocals, straightforward lyrics and mesmerizing guitar licks, Rhythm & Blues not only exemplifies how blues continues to be the foundation of all genres of today's music, it also illustrates why Guy has been influential in the careers of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more.
The Rhythm disc includes rhythm and blues-style blues with deep grooves, such as the Junior Wells' 1960 hit "Messin' With The Kid" featuring Kid Rock, the touching "One Day Away" with Keith Urban, and "What You're Gonna Do About Me," a rousing duet with Beth Hart. Guy rounds out the disc with "Best In Town," "Whiskey Ghost," Guitar Slim's "Well I Done Got Over It" and more.
The Blues disc taps into the genre's rich history with "Meet Me In Chicago," "I Could Die Happy," "Never Gonna Change" and "All That Makes Me Happy Is The Blues." Aerosmith's Tyler, Perry and Whitford contribute to the musical lesson with "Evil Twin" while Gary Clark, Jr. joins Guy on "Blues Don t Care."
In a career that spans nearly 50 years with over 50 albums released, the incomparable Buddy Guy recently added the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors and NARM Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement to his long list of achievements. Guy is the recipient of 30 awards and accolades, including 6 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W. C. Handy Awards), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the first annual Great Performer of Illinois Award, a Billboard Music Awards' Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the Presidential National Medal of Arts, in addition to being listed as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone.

Hier noch ein begeistertes U.S-Review:

Buddy Guy – Next to Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, his name personifies Chicago blues. Considering he’ll be 77 years old on July 30th, you’d think he’d be ready to sit down and take it easy. His new album is proof that like good whiskey and fine wine he’s just gotten better with age. For Buddy’s birthday he gives us all a gift with Rhythm & Blues, a two disc album filled with some stellar collaborations and which after over 50 albums is probably one of his best releases.
This album is once again produced by the Grammy winning producer Tom Hambridge (Living Proof, 2010). A musician who is criminally unknown for his own blues rock releases. Tom Hambridge plays the drums throughout the album. After that there are two basic all-star sets of musicians. The first consists of David Grissom (guitar), Reese Wynans, (B3), and Michael Rhodes (bass). The second set consists of Rob McNeely (guitar), Kevin McKendree, (B3), and Tommy MacDonald (bass). As if the musicianship wasn’t enough in the above list, Buddy also has the following guest stars; Kid Rock, Gary Clark Jr., Beth Hart, Keith Urban, and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, who all contribute something unique and interesting.
With two discs of quality material to pick from it’s difficult to discuss them all. Suffice to say there isn’t a bad track. So we’ll just discuss the highlights.
Disc 1: “Justifyin’” is the second track and it is a fast rockin’ powerhouse of a track. It’s amazing that Buddy can rip notes off his guitar at that rate at almost 77 years old. “I Go By Feel” slows things down as Buddy explains a conversation with an old blues teacher when he was younger and how the concept that feel is what sets a great musician apart from someone who is technically capable. You can throw all the notes at someone you want but there is that connection with a few simple notes where an artist can express all the emotion of the song. Buddy next teams up with Kid Rock to cover the appropriately named Elmore James tune “Messin’ with the Kid,” which Buddy played guitar on way back in 1965. Kid’s gruff voice actually meshes well with the attitude of the song. Shortly after that we get a cover, “One Day Away,” which was written by one of Buddy’s long time touring guitar players, Scott Holt, who is another artist everyone should check out. Keith Urban lends his country swagger to the song singing about telling someone you love them and the need to seize the day and to not wish one day away. Beth Hart steps up next and let’s everything rip on the spectacular track “What You Gonna Do About Me” as she trades lyrics with Buddy, proving once again why she is one of the powerhouse female vocalists of this generation.
Disc 2: The second disc starts out with a tribute to Buddy’s hometown with “Meet Me In Chicago.” Buddy lists the highlights of his hometown, like deep dish pizza, Wrigley Field, Soldier Field, Wabash Avenue, and in Buddy’s typical humble style he of course lists Buddy Guy playing the blues, which is reason enough to come to Chicago. “Evil Twin” brings the members of Aerosmith in for a straight up blues anthem. “All That Makes Me Happy is the Blues” is slow blues that is all about exactly what the song title says it is. Blues is known for being a genre of music about sadness, but it’s not meant to be sad. It’s really meant to be an uplifting release of all of our problems. The final track that stands out on here is collaboration with Gary Clark Jr. on the rollicking “Blues Don’t Care.”
Buddy will always be one of the legends of the blues. He has always blurred the lines between blues and rock and roll. Filled with his signature tone and that Buddy Guy attitude, Rhythm & Blues just continues to cement his legacy as one of the greatest guitar players.
(Kevin O’Rourke/Blues Rock Review)

Little Big Town - nightfall [2020]
"'Nightfall' is Little Big Town's album of 'peaceful' social commentary in a divisive world". Musikalisch in 13 wunderbare, gesanglich und instrumentell hinreißend vorgetragene Lieder gefasstes, überaus ambitioniertes, neues Album von Little Big Town. Das immer mal wieder als "Fleetwod Mac des Country" bezeichnete, mit vielen Grammys und anderen Preisen hochdekorierte Quartett zeigt sich textlich engagiert und kritisch wie nie zuvor. Man hat etwas zu sagen. Dazu packen Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Roads, Jimi Westbrook und Phillip Sweet die teils sehr zum Nachdenken anregenden Themen nicht in rauschende Partyheuler, sondern in entsprechend exquisites, überaus niveauvolles Midtempo- und Balladen-Songmaterial mit tollen Arrangements. "This is no 'rah-rah beer festival'", betonte die Band dazu in verschiedenen Interviews (nachzulesen in u. a. Original Album-Review des New Yorker Wall Street Journal). "Nigtfall" ist eine absolute Glanzleistung von Little Big Town!

Original Album-Review des New Yorker Wall Street Journal:

Ambitious country-music performers face some daunting choices these days. They can lean toward furthering the genre’s tradition of capturing under-explored scenes and sentiments of contemporary adult life, and thus risk appealing to hard-core connoisseurs only. Or they can engage with popular tropes that, however often repeated, dominate big-time country radio, winning acceptance by the widest audience in the process. The fairly stark dichotomy can be characterized as more lettered, Americana-adjacent country versus country pop; aiming at more mature versus younger audiences; or even simply as album-centered versus hot-single-oriented production.
But there is a third, especially challenging route—one pursued by such repeatedly honored practitioners as Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley : working consciously and deftly to have it both ways. And among vocal groups over the past decade, none has proved more adept at walking this road than the mixed-gender, always vocally harmonious quartet Little Big Town—founders Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, with Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet. Winners of the Country Duo/Group Performance Grammy for “Pontoon” (2012), “Girl Crush” (2014) and “Better Man” (2016), they were also the Country Music Awards’ Vocal Group of the Year for six years running, 2012-2017. Their latest album, “Nightfall” (Capitol Records Nashville), set for release Jan. 17, is yet another in their succession of album gems, and a prime example of an artfully constructed offering likely to gain popularity as well as critical praise.
The most-discussed track before the album’s release has been “The Daughters,” a melodic ballad written by Ms. Fairchild along with respected Nashville songwriters Sean McConnell and Ashley Ray. Introduced by the group on the televised ACM Awards back in April, it outlines the circumscribing demands and expectations young girls are so often subjected to and offers them parental hope, but a chorus line that tossed in “I’m just looking for a God for the daughters” effectively ruled it out as a single promoted to wary and guarded pop-country radio. (The same edgy cheekiness had marked the easily misunderstood “Girl Crush,” and brought more attention to it.) “The Daughters” was nominated for this year’s Country Duo/Group Performance Grammy before the album was even out.
The first track that was vigorously promoted as a single is a song about drinking, safer country territory, and is in a traditional honky-tonk mode—not just in sound and rhythm but in its clever turn on expectations. “Over Drinking” is not about drinking too much, but about being finished with crying in a beer: “I’m drunk ’cause I’m happy, not drunk ’cause you’re gone; I’m over drinking over you.” Classic hard country. But for those looking for a pop alternative, the very next album track is “Wine, Beer, Whiskey,” which, after a teasing after-hours jazz-like opening, turns to a thumping salute to friends named Jack, Jose, Brandy, Sherry and Captain. No explanations required—and audience balance achieved.
The latest single, “Sugar Coat,” is a moody, dark ballad with Ms. Fairchild singing lead, in the persona of the long-suffering wife of a husband with wandering ways. She doesn’t drink, doesn’t take pills, just smiles “with a lump in my throat.” Many will find the song instantly relatable; it was written by country’s expert on such situations, Lori McKenna, along with Josh Kerr and Jordyn Shellhart. One of the advantages of a track record like Little Big Town’s is the happy availability of new songs that work for them from top writers—a number in this case co-written along with the band, and with Ms. Fairchild in particular. The album’s all-star songwriting contributors include Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuck, Grammy-winning producers and collaborating writers for Kacey Musgraves’s “Golden Hour” album last year; and the so-called Love Junkies (Ms. McKenna, Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose ) who’d been responsible for “Girl Crush.”
Overall, the instrumentation is as varied as the album’s many moods demand, and the always strong Little Big Town vocals rise to the varied occasions. But as the songs add up on “Nightfall,” you notice that there’s a theme at work, reflected in the album title—moods when the lights go down; dreams; thoughts while lying in bed alone or with company, old or new. It’s often sophisticated, yet nonetheless country-ready, after-dark material.
“Nightfall,” the group has been telling interviewers, is no “rah-rah beer festival.” Indeed, the album’s release show is set for New York’s Carnegie Hall on Jan. 16, and the Apollo Theater the following two nights. To use a phrase only occasionally appreciated or particularly appropriate in country, this is a class album from one classy group. (Barry Mazor / The Wall Street Journal)

Manassas - pieces [2009]
Wieder einmal eine sehr schöne, und wie bei diesem Label üblich, liebevoll aufgemachte Veröffentlichung von "Rhino": Diesmal ist man die Archive von Stephen Stills und seiner 1971 gegründeten, allerdings nicht allzu lang lebigen Formation Manassas (mit u.a. Chris Hillman und Al Perkins) durchgegangen. Herausgekommen ist das feine, historisch wertvolle "Pieces" mit rarem und bislang unveröffentlichtem Material. Tolle Sache!

Hier der offizielle Text von "Rhino" zur Veröffentlichung:

Stephen Stills has influenced generations with his powerful voice, songwriting artistry, and passionate guitar playing, both as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Manassas. Rhino reveals a snapshots of Stills' early days with the release of Manassas PIECES, a 15-song collection of unreleased recordings from sessions for both of the band’s albums. After recording his second solo album, Stills formed Manassas in 1971 with a talented group of musicians that included Chris Hillman, a former member of the Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. Manassas released two albums, 1972's eponymous double-album debut and the 1973 follow-up, Down The Road. MANASSAS - PIECES features alternate versions of two songs from Down The Road: "Do You Remember The Americans" and "Lies" (featuring guitarist Joe Walsh). The collection also includes the legendary group's unreleased performances of "Sugar Babe" and "Word Game," a pair of songs Stills recorded in 1971 for his second solo album. The remaining tracks include "Like A Fox," a song recorded with blues guitarist Bonnie Raitt on background vocals and the Latin-tinged "Tan Sola Y Triste" (Spanish for 'So Alone and Sad').

Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - the magic door [2012]
3 Monate nach "Big moon ritual" lassen The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (die neue, grandiose Formation des Frontmannes der The Black Crowes, nachdem die mal wieder für unbestimmte Zeit auf Eis liegen) kommt nun mit "The magic door" das angekündigte Sequal. Die Scheibe schließt nahtlos an den Vorgänger an. Wunderbarer, authentischer Hippie Roots-/Jamrock mit viel "Soul", viel Psychedeli-Feeling und einem Flair von sehr der Grateful Dead-Philosophie ähnelnden Seventies Retro Westcoast-Anlagen. Chris Robinson selbst zeigt sich bereits jetzt mehr als zufrieden über seine neue Band: "We really feel these records set the stage for another full year, where we'll see how far we can go with it. We already feel successful because we have the freedom to do what we want. And it's always cosmic. The times demand it".

Die Original-Produktbeschreibung:

In June 2012, following a 118-show journey, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood released their debut album Big Moon Ritual (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records). It is a 'roots-o-licious collection of tunes with beautiful guitar tones, inventive parts, gorgeous solos, and killer vocals all around,' praised Guitar Player (June 2012), while Relix similarly raved by describing the album as 'a full immersion into Southern psychadelics, nine-minute song swoops, extended grooves and wailing vocals' (June 2012). The fruits of the band's hard-charging January 2012 recording sessions with producer Thom Monahan are heard not only on 'Big Moon Ritual' but in its companion album 'The Magic Door', set for release in September 2012.
Each album spotlights seven tunes, with 'The Magic Door' containing six originals 'Someday Past The Sunset', 'Vibration & Light Suite', 'Appaloosa', 'Little Lizzie Mae', 'Sorrows Of A Blue Eyed Liar' and 'Wheel Don't Roll' plus a cover of Hank Ballard's 'Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go', a CRB set list staple.
Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) create exciting musical sparks throughout 'The Magic Door'. 'We really feel these records set the stage for another full year, where we'll see how far we can go with it,' say Robinson. 'We already feel successful because we have the freedom to do what we want. And it's always cosmic. The times demand it.'

Wynn, Thomas and The Believers - wade waist deep [2017]
Vielversprechendes Sextett aus Orlando/Florida, das mit seinem bereits dritten Album "Wade waist deep" eine starke, kraftvolle Mischung aus swampigem Rootsrock, Southern Rock, Gospel, Blues, R&B, Folk und einer dezenten Prise Country anbietet. Sehr kompaktes Songmaterial mit vielen Balladen, die allerdings mit viel Energie präsentiert werden. Man spürt jederzeit das Southern-Feeling. Zu den Highlights zählen der monumentale Opener "Man out of time", das Titelstück "Wade waist deep" eine toll groovende, sehr melodische, southern-swampige Midtempo-Nummer mit feiner Instrumentierung aus Keyboards und Gitarren, der kräftige, leicht psychedelisch angehauchte, schwerblütige Rocker "You can't hurt me", das balladesk beginnende, dann sehr dynamische "Feel the good", das slow-bluesige "I don't regret", sowie die beiden melodischen Balladen "Heartbreak Alley" und "My eyes won't be open". Das Album enthält ein schönes, 20-seitiges Booklet mit allen Texten.

Hier ein Original U.S-Review des ALbums:

Thomas Wynn and the Believers, a six-piece band from Orlando, Florida, will celebrate the release of its third album Wade Waist Deep this weekend, a 12-track project that manages to sound raw and polished at once. The band has a considerable lack of visibility on rock’s national stage, despite local accolades: voted the Best of Orlando #1 Rock Band from 2009 through 2015 by Orlando Weekly, TW&TB have performed at festivals and in small venues, shared stages with the likes of Gov’t Mule, the Wallflowers, Blackberry Smoke and others, and last year signed with Mascot Label Group, the blues label that’s home to artists like Beth Hart and Eric Gales. It’s difficult to crack the code for success in the music business, but it might be time for TW&TB to earn recognition on a larger scale. The title track "Wade Waist Deep" is a song that has a slow, cautious start before it busts open 90 seconds in with the powerful vocals that lead singer Thomas Wynn is known for. Co-written by Thomas Wynn and Tyler Bryant, the lyrics in “My Eyes Won’t Be Open” are a reaction to the fear of (and determination against) leaving this world with regrets. It’s one of a few notable contemplative tracks on this album, with “Wade Waist Deep” and single “Man Out of Time” offering reflections on loneliness and time expired. Most tracks on Wade Waist Deep deliver clear messages, whether through the stories relayed (like the narrator following his mother’s advice in the title track or remembering the hurt in “Heartbreak Alley”) or the song titles alone (“Feel the Good,” “Man Out of Time” and “We Could All Die Screaming” all cut straight to the point before the songs even begin). Even more compelling than the emotive lyrics is the album’s structure. The presence of keys and organ throughout Wade Waist Deep invites moments that feel almost spiritual, a likely product of the band’s Southern roots. These moments are heard on “Burn as One” and blossom on the sixth track “I Don’t Regret,” which dips into soul with help from keyboardist Colin Fei’s skillful ear and the duet of brother-sister vocal team Thomas and Olivia Wynn. “Man Out of Time” is a dip into Southern rock’s darker, bluesier realm. This mood persists for the rest of the album, with “Mountain Fog” serving as a natural follow-up to “Man Out of Time” and “Turn it Into Gold” crystalizing the vibe as its smoldering beginning builds to a breaking point halfway through that erupts with grinding guitar, crashing percussion and the Wynns’ vocal cries. “Turn it Into Gold” works as a powerful close to the album.
