Avett Brothers, The - true sadness [2016]
Großartiges, neues Album der gefeierten Avett Brothers aus North Carolina, die abermals eine bestechende Auswahl toller Songs ihrer unwiderstehlichen, ganz eigenen Folkrock-/Alternate Country-/Americana-Mixtur abliefern. Was sind das für fantastische Musiker! Geschickt verbinden sie klassische Retro-Elemente mit modernen Sounds und erzeugen dabei eine faszinierende Magie - melodisch, voller Spielwitz und Spielfreude. Produziert hat das Album abermals Rick Rubin. Toll!

Aus der offiziellen Produktbeschreibung:

In a heartfelt personal letter penned by Seth Avett, Grammy Award®-nominated alternative folk collective THE AVETT BROTHERS revealed today that they will be releasing their new album, True Sadness on Friday June 24, 2016. The first single is titled Ain t No Man. Read the letter here.
The record reflects THE AVETT BROTHERS artistic, musical, and personal evolution over 16 years as a band. Eloquently describing what s to come on the horizon, Seth writes, True Sadness is a patchwork quilt, both thematically and stylistically. Wherein a myriad of contrasting fabrics make perfect sense on the same plane, this album draws upon countless resources from its writers and performers.
He goes on to cite pervasive and cornerstone influences such as, Queen, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimmie Rodgers, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Gillian Welch, Aretha Franklin, Walt Disney, Pink Floyd, Kings of Convenience, calypso of the 1950 s and country of the 1930 s.
Most importantly, he assures, Throughout the album, we stitched together the boldest red and the calmest green, polka dots and stripes, the roughest denim and the smoothest velveteen. They came together because they are the best patterns we have and because each of us brought our own fabric to the quilting frame.

Black Crowes, The - croweology [2010]
2 CD-Set! Was für eine famose Leistung der Black Crowes! Neues Acoustic Doppel-Album der "Krähen", im übrigen erneut mit Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) an Bord, zum Preis einer Einzel-CD! Dafür spielte die Truppe über 20 Songs ihres umfangreichen, phantastischen Repertoires noch einmal neu ein - wie gesagt, in akustischen Versionen. Doch was heisst hier akustisch: Sagen wir mal, die Basis ist eindeutig akustisch, aber das ist ein richtig kraftvolles, zündendes, ungemein engagiertes Werk geworden, bei dem die Rhythmus-Sektion aus Drums und elektrischem Bass einen wunderbar erdigen, rootsigen Groove vorgibt und auch mal eine dezente, dreckige, elektrische Lead-Gitarre zum Eisatz kommt. Eigentlich sind es also eher semi-akustische Arrangements, doch, und das ist das Entscheidende, sie unterscheiden sich deutlich von den bekannten Versionen. Es ist faszinierend, was die Band in der Lage ist, mit diesem Material noch einmal für einen Spannungsbogen aufzubauen. Der Funke springt sofort über. Tolle Jammings, tolle Grooves, großartige Melodien, ausgedehnte instrumentelle Breaks, Spielfreude, und viel, viel Seele und Inspiration. Enthält im übrigen eine klasse, bisher unveröffentlichte Coverversion von Gram Parsons' "She" und mit "Cold boy smile" auch ein vollkommen neues Stück. Einfach grandios! Ein zusätzliches Highlight ist die überragende Verpackung und Aufmachung des Albums. Die CDs kommen in einem wundervoll illustrierten, 4-fach aufklappbaren Digipack, bei dem sich, sobal man es auseinanderfaltet, in der Mitte ein Gebilde mit zwei am Lagerfeuer sitzenden, Mesch-gewordenen "Hippie-Krähen" erhebt (3 D-Gimmick-Cover), in der Art, wie bei der legendären, alten Jethro Tull-LP "Stand up". Klasse! So etwas Großartiges bekommt man bei einem Download eben nicht geboten. So etwas sollte Schule machen. Ein extrem reizvolles "Verpackungsplus" zu der eh schon genialen Musik. Tolle Sache für die Fans! Rundherum ein saustarkes Teil!

Kurz nach dem VÖ-Termin, am 13. August 2010, starten die Black Crowes in Milwaukee im übrigen ihre große U.S. "Say goodnight to the bad guys"-Tour, bei der sie jeweils einen 90-minütigen Acoustc-Set und einen 90-minütigen Electric-Set spielen werden. 20 Jahre sind es her, seitdem die Band ihr legendäres Album "Shake your money maker" veröffentlichte - und dieses neue Album und die anschliessende Tour sind eine Art Jubiläumsgeschenk der Band an die Fans. Danach ist erst einmal Schluß. Die Band wird sich nicht trennen, allerdings eine längere Auszeit nehmen. "Croweology" ist also so etwas wie ein "Abschiedsalbum" für eine längere Zeit... - aber das wird sicher nochmal ein Genuß für die Fans.

Aus dem Original-Text zur Produktbeschreibung":
The Black Crowes will release Croweology, its first double album of all acoustic material, on August 3. The release celebrates the 20th year anniversary of the Crowes’ 1990 debut Shake Your Money Maker. Following a tour in support of the album, the band has planned a lengthy hiatus. The members of the Black Crowes parted ways in 2001 and reunited in 2005.
“At this milestone in our career, I feel very fortunate that I have had the opportunity to spend my life making music,” Rich Robinson said in a statement. “It’s been 20 years since we started out on this journey. I would like to extend my deep gratitude to all of our fans who have been there with us along the way. We would not have gotten here without your support. Every night I stand on the stage I feel great pride and respect for what we share with our fans. After this tour we are going to take some much needed time to spend with our families. But for now, we are very much looking forward to a great year of touring. I look forward to seeing all your familiar faces again on the road. See you soon.”
After touring in 2009, The Black Crowes spent time at the Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles, recording over 20 songs from their 20-year history. The band arranged acoustic versions of many of their best-loved songs and the band’s catalogue picks."

Cash, Johnny - bootleg vol. IV: the soul of truth [2012]
2 CD-Set! Die mittlerweile schon "kultige", großartige "Bootleg"-Serie mit raren und hoch interessanten Johnny Cash-Aufnahmen geht weiter. Im vierten Teil wird Cash's spirituelle Seite und seine Verbundenheit zur Gospel-Musik durchleuchtet. Die vorliegende Doppel-CD enthält 3 sehr rare, komplette Alben, davon eins aus dem Jahre 1975, das bislang nie veröffentlicht wurde (die anderen beiden sind "A believer sings the truth" und "Gospel singer", das erwähnte, unveröffentlichte Werk von 1975 hat niemals einen Titel bekommen), sowie weitere seltene und bislang noch nie erschienene Tracks und Outtakes. Insgesamt sind das 51 Songs, davon 15 bislang unveröffentlicht. Dazu gibt's im Booklet sehr informative Liner-Notes, geschrieben von Johnny's Sohn, John Carter Cash. Klasse!

Die Original-Produktbeschreibung:

If not for gospel music, there never would have been a Johnny Cash. When Cash decided he wanted to be an entertainer, there was really only one type of music he intended to sing. Although Cash reinvented himself many times during his life, there was one way in which he never did: His faith. And this faith, with its roots so firmly planted in gospel music, stayed with him throughout his life.
Bootleg Vol. IV: The Soul Of Truth presents an intimate and personal look at Cash s passion for gospel music and his own spiritual path. Bootleg Vol. IV presents three rare albums in their entirety: A Believer Sings The Truth; an untitled, unreleased 1975 set; and Johnny Cash Gospel Singer. Among these hard-to-find recordings are 15 unreleased tracks including outtakes from the sessions at which the albums were recorded.
Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash, provides liner notes that detail Cash's upbringing on gospel and his passion for recording and performing this music despite resistance from his record labels. Though he would sing many kinds of music in his life, he was never truer than when he sang songs of faith.
To fully grasp Cash's legend, one must hear his earliest performances, as well as unreleased or under-promoted recordings that somehow remained out of earshot of an adoring (and still-expanding) public. Such is the mission of the Johnny Cash Bootlegs, a series of multiple-disc packages brimming with historical importance but also delivering thoroughly enjoyable listening experiences, each programmed to stand as a captivating doorway into Cash's popular legacy as effectively as any greatest hits compilation.

Castro, Tommy & The Painkillers - method to my madness [2015]
Der großartige Bluesrock-Veteran und exzellente Gitarrist Tommy Castro legt mit seiner baumstarken, aktuellen Formation, den Painkillers, den Nachfolger zu seinem letztjährigen, famosen "The devil you know" vor und zeigt eindrucksvoll, in welch blendender Verfassung er und seine Jungs nach wie vor aufspielen. Bestens groovender, funky, classic, soulful Blues und Bluesrock, umgesetzt in exzellentem Songmaterial. Sehr inspiriert! Klasse Album!

Die Produktbeschreibung im Original:

Night after night, Tommy Castro, a fierce and fiery road warrior, fervently delivers his driving, blues-soaked, soul-baring music to fans all over the world. Over the course of his four-decade career, Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, packing dance floors, always leaving them screaming for more. He and his band, The Painkillers (currently featuring bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson and drummer Bowen Brown), play music that is guaranteed to fire up fans and with Method To My Madness, the group turns the intensity up another notch. “My main objective when making a new album,” says Castro, “is to do something different from before. I’ve always been a blues guy; it’s what I’m meant to do. But I’m always listening and reacting to what’s going on in the outside world, experimenting with my guitar tone and my songwriting approach to constantly keep my music fresh. In the end, though, my brand is on every song.” Method To My Madness finds Tommy Castro And The Painkillers at their very best. It is instantly a career-defining highlight in a lifetime full of them. From the opening one-two punch of everyman anthems Common Ground and Shine A Light to the full-tilt energy of the title track to the searing, deep soul ballad Died And Gone To Heaven, Tommy and the band are firing on all cylinders. From the bayou rock of Got A Lot and the atmospheric, autobiographical Ride to the reinvented version of the Clarence Carter hit I’m Qualified and the emotional cover of B.B. King’s Bad Luck, Tommy Castro And The Painkillers continue to break new ground while simultaneously having an incredible amount of fun. After spending his 20s gigging around in a variety of San Francisco-area blues and soul bands, Castro joined Warner Brothers’ artists The Dynatones in the late 1980s before forming The Tommy Castro Band in 1991. He released his debut album in 1996 on Blind Pig and hit the road hard, picking up new fans everywhere he went. In the mid-1990s The Tommy Castro Band served as the house band for three seasons on NBC Television’s Comedy Showcase (airing right after Saturday Night Live), bringing him in front of millions of viewers every week. During the 1990s and into the 2000s, Castro released a series of critically acclaimed CDs for Blind Pig, Telarc and 33rd Street Records, as well as one on his own Heart And Soul label. Castro joined Alligator Records in 2009, releasing Hard Believer and winning four of his six career Blues Music Awards including the coveted B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year Award (the very highest award a blues performer can receive). His song Hard Believer took first place in the blues category of the International Songwriting Competition. Castro formed The Painkillers in 2012, creating a lean, mean four-piece lineup and leaving his tight horn section behind. Fueled by Tommy’s voice and guitar plus bass, drums and keyboards, the band released The Devil You Know in 2014, winning over hordes of new fans. Castro stripped his music down to its raw essence with the band hammering their point home on the bandstand. Jambands declared, “Tommy Castro And The Painkillers are a crackling, stripped-down band with plenty of grit and a rocking soul.” Now, with Method To My Madness, Tommy Castro And The Painkillers are ready to unleash their new songs on music fans everywhere. “With the new album,” Castro says, “I was trying to get back to my basic ingredients: blues and soul. I went for the energy of connecting with my band. We kept everything raw, capturing the feeling of playing live. I’m not about being perfect,” he says, summing up. “I’m about being real.” Clearly that is the method to his madness.

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.

Clark, Guy - songs and stories [2011]
Exzellentes Full Band Acoustic Live-Album des legendären, texanischen Singer/Songwriters und Storytellers mit u . a. Verlon Thompson an der akustischen Gitarre und dem großartigen Kenny Malone am Schlagzeug. Die Aufnahmen bestechen mit einer wunderbaren, intimen Laid Back-Atmosphäre.

Earle, Steve - the low highway [2013]
Exzellentes, neues Album des Americana-/Alternative Country-Pioniers, eingespielt mit seiner Touring-Band den Dukes (& Duchesses), inkl. Gattin Alison Moorer. Es ist ein typisches Earle-Album geworden, das mit der Variabilität der Songs aber dennoch etwas ganz Besonderes darstellt. Wunderbar rootsig, oft in einem sehr trockenen stripped-down Full Band-Arrangement dargeboten, rau, erdig, kantig, sich geschickt in den verschiedensten Nischen des Alternate Country bewegend, oft recht ruhig, dazwischen aber auch mal dreckig rockig ("Calico County"), auch mal , zumindestens was die E- Gitarrensounds betrifft, mit einem fast an die legendären Byrds erinnernden Retro-Countryrocker ("21st. Century Blues") oder mit einem irisch folkigen, grassigen Stück (Warren hellman's Banjo) und feinen, melodischen Storytelling-/Americana-Nummern ("The low highway", "Remember me"). Egal, was Earle und seine Band auch spielen, die Songs sind erstklassig. Die einschlägige Presse ist mal wieder Voll des Lobes - völlig zu Recht!

Hier noch ein Original U.S.-Review:

Over the past 27 years Steve Earle's music has journeyed all across the Americana spectrum: country, rock, folk, Beatlesque psychedelia, topical folk songs, etc. He's even done a covers record of Townes Van Zandt songs to pay tribute to his late mentor and friend. His very best offerings are those he's recorded with his Twang Trust production partner, Ray Kennedy. They're together here. Over 12 songs, Earle does what he does best: he tells stories that get under the skin and into the bones. Backed by the Dukes (& Duchesses), his road band, the title track's first-person vignette captures the strangeness and contradiction of America from a small vantage point, a first-person narrative about traveling. His world-weary voice brings the listener into the meld of fiddle, strummed acoustic guitars, and whining pedal steel and keeps her there, seeing it all through his eyes. "Calico County" is a straight-up rocker with whomping electric guitars, Fender Rhodes, bass, and drums. "Burnin' It Down" is the other side of the roaming romantic of "I Ain't Ever Satisfied," defeated, angry, bewildered about what happened to those dreams and his town. Allison Moorer's accordion lends a poignant undercurrent to the guitars. "After Mardi Gras," written for Lucia Micarelli's character in the HBO series Treme, is delivered with a gentle swing, and a tender violin solo by Eleanor Whitmore. This contrasts with the barroom boogie of "Pocket Full of Rain," driven by Moorer's piano, fiddle, and a strolling upright bassline by Kelly Looney. "Down the Road, Pt. 2" is a roiling trucker country number, infused with the spirit of Bill Monroe thanks to Earle's mandolin. The closer, "Remember Me," a slow, 4/4 Americana number, is a plea from a father to his child; it's one of the most moving, poetic songs in Earle's catalog. The singer is accompanied only by his acoustic guitar in the first half, before Will Rigby's loose-tuned snare and bass drum, accompanied by upright bass, mandolin, and pedal steel, enter. The song is a testament of familial faith, an offering of unwavering love with a lone request: that the protagonist not be forgotten no matter life's turns. The Low Highway is Earle the storyteller without any agenda save for getting the songs right, telling stories, and recording songs that will resonate as deeply live as they do here. This may be his most consistent offering since El Corazón.

Ellis, Tinsley - red clay soul [2016]
Tinsley Ellis, "Atlanta's (Georgia) Southern Bluesman", mit einem weiteren, klasse, neuen Album! Begleitet von seinem begnadeten Gitarrenspiel beglückt Ellis seine Fans diesmal, der Titel sagt es schon, mit einem deutlich Soul-orientierterem Werk. Neben der unwiderstehlichen Gitarrenarbeit werden die Songs, die diesmal nicht ganz so "dampfend" rocken, mit schönem Klavierspiel inszeniert. Alles steckt voller Seele - auch Ellis' Gesang. Großartiger, gepflegter Southern Soul-Blues "at it's finest"!

Hier noch ein großartiges U.S.-Review:

Tinsley Ellis gives us an album filled with tracks that are reminiscent of the characteristic southern soul sound of many southern artists. Digging back to the roots of the soul sound of Ray Charles and Otis Redding and hailing from Georgia, Ellis’ title of his latest release makes perfect sense, Red Clay Soul. There are plenty of mildly rocking tracks like “All I Think About Is You” and the song written with Oliver Wood of the Wood Brothers, “Givin’ You Up,” which is probably the track that is the most accessible to everyone. There just is not as much of the blues rocker that we are familiar with in his earlier albums like Fire It Up. There is still plenty to enjoy here, though, because Ellis does plenty of wonderfully expressive guitar work on some of the slower more emotionally deep tracks. The atmospheric slow blues of “Hungry Woman Blues” is an excellent example with the lines “you took my car and money too. I’m at the end of my rope … baby you took my rope, too” is just the type of lyrical mastery that his gritty voice is perfect for as he expresses the vulnerability of having his heart broken. The rock output gets ramped up a little with “Don’t Cut It.” He really does some evocative string stretching as he channels a Latin vibe in the beautiful instrumental of “Estero Noche.” Meanwhile, the standout track of this album though is the closer “The Bottle, The Book, or The Gun.” Filled with some sparse picking in the solo his control of phrasing and melody are superb as he expresses the frustration of an alcoholic hitting bottom after waking up in an unknown place every morning after a bout with the bottle to ward off the loneliness of life on the road. After 40 years as a musician touring the world, Tinsley pays tribute to the Southern soul sound and digs deep and delivers some superb emotionally cathartic tracks. The raw sound of being recorded live in the studio makes the mastery of Ellis’ guitar work all the more impressive. (Kevin O’Rourke, BluesrockReview)

Evans, Morgan - things that we drink to [2018]
Klasse U.S.-Debut des Australiers Morgan Evans, der drauf und dran ist in Nashville richtig Fuß zu fassen. Evans, in übrigen verheiratet mit der immens erfolgreichen Kelsea Ballerini, spielt eine überaus gefällige und voller Hitpotential steckende Mischung aus lockeren, gut zu verarbeitenden und sehr melodischen, mal dynamischen, mal langsameren Songs an der Schnittstelle zwischen New Country und Countrypop, die geradezu darauf warten die Charts zu stürmen. Enthält seinen ersten Nr.1-Hit, das flotte "Kiss somebody," und den neuen Hit "Day drunk". Natürlich darf auch ein Duett mit seiner Liebsten, Kelsea Ballerini, nicht fehlen ("Dance with me").

Hier ein Original U.K.-Review:

Morgan Evans captured the hearts of the UK when he released his lead single Kiss Somebody. With just a handful of songs out, Morgan has continued to build his UK fanbase with a couple of trips here including playing C2C Festival. Although we don’t often like to focus on an artists craft through their significant other, we can’t not mention Evan’s wife Kelsea Ballerini when she is so clearly the muse of most of his songs.
Morgan’s debut album Things That We Drink To starts with the song American, Evan’s seems to be describing his wife;
She’s got hair as gold as Kansas Wheat, her body moves like bourbon street in New Orleans, so wild and free She’s American, making my life better than it’s ever been.
American is a great start to the album and has that earlier Keith Urban style to it. This album is actually so much better than I thought it would be. With the title being Things That We Drink To I was somewhat afraid it was going to be a bunch of typical bro – country songs that sound just like all the other artists out there who sing about beer, trucks, dirt roads and women in little tight blue jeans or something. But this album has a lot more depth to it.
A lot of the songs are not just radio friendly but arena friendly and are definitely of the standard where you can imagine a huge arena concert and the music bouncing off the arena walls and everyone singing along.
Songs such as I Do are more mid tempo and in I Do’s case, is a love letter to his wife and well lets face it, us country fans are suckers for a real life country music love story.
Song for the Summer lost me a bit. I think it will prove popular amongst a lot of fans as has a great dance beat to it but it isn’t for me. It has an element of Sam Hunt in it and although I quite like Hunt, I just can’t seem to get into it.
Day Drunk which was another single is a great summer anthem song but again, neither here nor there for me sadly.
Kelsea Ballerini joins Morgan for Dance With Me for a stunning ballad. This is a gorgeous romantic country song as it should be. There is beauty in its simplicity and it isn’t over produced. The words are of course believable as they are true. Kelsea may not like love songs but Morgan clearly does and we are so glad about that or we wouldn’t have this song. I would be very surprised if this doesn’t get released as a single.
Me on You has a bit of an R&B element to it. It has a sweet guitar riff throughout and a nice beat to it. Although I am not keen on the clubby dance element to country music, this song can easily have that vibe but would also be amazing stripped back.
The title track Things That We Drink To, is thankfully not your typical drinking song but a breathtaking dedication to a friend of Morgans, his late manager who sadly passed. (More on that can be found here. ) This song has a strong anthem feel to it and its down tempo stylings are really quite infectious especially in the piano accompaniment. The emotion in Morgan’s vocals, lyrics and music is honest and quite deep. I like a song with meaning, a song where you can actually feel where the artist is coming from and what they a feeling on some level. The subject was obviously someone very dear to Morgan and the song is both happy and sad at the same time with the feeling of loss but also great memories and celebration of friendship. I think the songs music and words encompasses all of that and I would certainly drink to that.
We Dream is about those childhood dreams and childhood freedom. It is a good song but might be one that takes me a while. I sadly feel the same way about Everything Changes. Both aren’t bad tracks but may take a listen or two.
Young Again is a great song to close the album on. It has a Folk music way about it and is like an Irish drinking song and I enjoy those type of drinking songs as they feel a lot more happy and are the kind of songs that bring unity. I can see this song being one of those live songs that make people in the crowd all sway arm and arm whilst of course, raising glasses.
Overall this is a quality, celebratory album that certainly has that “Let’s raise our glasses” feel to it. Things That We Drink To has a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyable songs.
There is a really bright future for Morgan Evans and he is definitely on his way up to being one of the big names and I am actually really excited about it. If he continues to deliver music similar to what he has now then I am more than happy for him to sit up there on the top of the charts. (Hnnah Jessica / Building Our Own Nashville)

Garcia, Jerry - on broadway: act one - october 28th, 1987 [2015]
3 CD-Set! Erste Veröffentlichung einer neuen Serie historischer Jerry Garcia-Konzerte, die die Shows der Jerry Garcia Band am Broadway zum Thema hat. Die vorliegenden 3 CDs haben die kompletten, bislang unveröffentlichten Sets vom 28. Oktober 1987 aus dem berühmten Lunt-Fontanne Theatre am New Yorker Broadway zum Inhalt. An diesem Tag gab es zwei akustische Sets der Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band und einen elektrischen mit der Jerry Garcia Band. Großartig!

Hier der offizielle Text zur Veröffentlichung im Original:

We're excited to announce the debut of On Broadway, a new archival series celebrating Jarry's magical 13 night run at the historic Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City's Broadway theater district. On Broadway: Act One - October 28th, 1987 presents three complete sets of music, including previously unrelease matinee and evening acoustic sets from the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, as well as the evening electric set from the Jerry Garcia Band. The release was produced from newly remastered two-track soundboard recordings originally captured to digital audio tape and includes previously unpublished live photos, and a liner note essay by author, historian and Grateful Dead publicist, Dennis MyNally.
"The (two) Garcia Bands' - Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, and the electrig JGB - 1987 run on Broadway from October 15th through Halloween was destined to be memorable for many reasons", as Dennis McNally states in the liner note essay. There's record setting ticket sale figures, a destiny tied to Jerry's namesake (Broadway composer Jerome Kern) and of course the sheer visual addity that is Deadheads descending upon The Great White Way, but what shines brightest is Garcia's juvial abd relaxed mood which sets the stage for the inspiring performances contained within the release. The below excerpt drom McNally's liner notes sums up the magic contained within the collection perfectly.
"The electric JGB was its usual solid self, ripping up Jerry's customany mix of Dylan (note especially Melvin's gorgeous, outstanding synthesizer work at 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door'), reggae (Peter Tosh's 'Stop That Tarin'), Mowtown (Marvin Gaye's 'How sweet it is') and Los Lobos' 'Evangeline'. The most interesting original here is the not-so-commonly sung 'Gomorrah', which garcia simply nails.
But it was the acoustic band that was unusual in this context, and it's worth some particilar attention. There are bluegrass songs - the Stanley Brothers' 'If I lose', amon others - folk songs - Libba Cotten's 'Oh babe it ain't no lie' - and country songs like the Tex Logan-arranged 'Diamond Joe' or Mel Tillis and Webb Pierce's 'I ain't nver', which has a Garcia/Nelson vocal duetthat sounds just like the Everly Brothers. The material was classy and fun and in some odd way just exactly right for Broadway".

Greene, Jackie - the modern lives - vol. 2 ~ ep [2018]
6 Track-EP! Exzellentes, neues "Mini"-Album, und damit die Fortsetzung von "The modern lives Vol. 1", des herausragenden Multi-Instrumentalisten (vor allem ist er ein bärenstarker Gitarrist und Keyboarder, der hier jedoch, und zwar in vorzüglicher Manier, alle Instrumene selbst eingespielt hat), Songwriters und Sängers, der vor allem in der Jamrock-Szene einen großen Namen hat. So machte er unter anderem als zentrales Mitglied der famosen, aber leider nur sehr kurzlebigen Trigger Hippy (deren überragendes Debutalbum ist noch in bester Erinnerung) auf sich aufmerksam, genauso wie neben Rich Robinson als zweiter Gitarrist bei den letzten Gigs der The Black Crowes, oder als oftmaliger Gast von Gov't Mule.

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

2018 release from the Americana/roots singer/songwriter. Jackie Greene is a jack-of-all-trades, and an artist who can croon over soulful piano ballads as much as he can shred a bluesy guitar solo. A road warrior and musician's musician, Greene's EP The Modern Lives - Vol 2 finds him at a new chapter in his life: his first months of fatherhood, time off his relentless touring circuit, and a cross-country move from Brooklyn to his birthplace of Northern California. This collection of six original songs is a thematic extension of The Modern Lives - Vol 1 EP, imbued with a Brooklyn basement DIY feel and ethos. He is a student of American music, transfixed upon it's progression through time, as well as how regional sounds fit in a contemporary context. Whereas Vol 1 saw Greene experiment with the Delta blues as a canvas for his examinations of modern society, Vol 2 sees Greene embrace the sounds of the bluegrass and folk tapes of his youth. Lead single "Crazy Comes Easy" showcases Greene's dynamic, multi-instrumental range as he plays slide guitar, organ, bass, and percussion, the open tuning of the guitar an appreciative nod to his time in The Black Crowes. Meanwhile, "Good Old Bad Times" highlights Greene as the songwriter as he rattles off lines like "How can somebody find a future?/If they ain't got a foothold in the past?" while taking a critical eye to the idea of nostalgia. Piano ballad "Victim Of The Crime" was one of Jackie's oldest demos up until the feel of these sessions gave him the tools to finish a song that, in his words, was written for his wife before she was his wife. While the title possesses a kind of melodrama, the song itself is tender and heartfelt as he details love's trials and tribulations.

Das komplette Tracklisting:

1. Crazy Comes Easy
2. Good Old Bad Times
3. Women And The Rain
4. Fragile And Wanting
5. Victim Of The Crime
6. That Ain't Love, That's Sugar

Hobbs, Becky - songs from the road of life [2004]
"Oklahoma cowgirl" Becky Hobbs ist wieder da! Die auch in Europa äußerst beliebte "piano-pounding, whiskey-voiced" Honky Tonk-Sängerin, deren größter Hit "Jones on the jukebox" sicher noch zahlreichen Countryfreunden in den Ohren liegt, erfreut ihre vielen Fans auf dem sehr persönlichen, neuen Album "Songs from the road of life" einmal mehr mit 12 neuen Songs der ihr typischen, lupenreinen, viel Power versprühenden, traditionellen Honky Tonk-Roadhouse-Countrymusic, mit der sie sich auch in der Nashville-Szene einen so großen Namen machte. Ihre Songs wurden in der Vergangenheit (sie ist ja auch eine sehr talentierte, anerkannte Songwriterin) von vielen Music City-Größen, wie z. B. Conway Twitty, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Janie Fricke, Ken Mellons, Lacy J. Dalton, John Anderson, usw..., aufgenommen. Unvergessen auch der Alabama-Klassiker "Angels among us", den sie ebenfalls mitkomponierte. "Beckaroo", wie sie liebevoll von ihren Freunden und Fans genannt wird, hat sich nie von modernen Strömungen leiten lassen, sondern blieb immer den ursprünglichen Country-Traditionen treu. So ist das auch auf ihrem neuen Album! Klassische Countrymusic mit viel Energie (auf der Bühne erlebt man sie als regelrechten "Wirbelwind", die bei ihren Piano-Einlagen gern schon mal ein "wildes" Jerry Lee Lewis-like Solo hinlegt) durch und durch! Aber auch die ein oder andere Ballade fehlt nicht! Los geht es jedoch standesgemäß mit dem fetzigen Piano-driven Roadhouse Honky Tonker "Woman gettin' older", der so manchen müden Cowboy und Trucker wieder auf Trab bringen dürfte - feine E-Gitarren mit anschließendem, dynamischem "Piano-Geklimper" inklusive! Danach hören wir, wie es der Titel "Another man in black" schon vermuten läßt, eine prima Hommage an den großen Johnny Cash, locker, traditionell, mit schöner Steelguitar und den typischen Cash-like Riffs ausgestattet. Zu den weiteren Höhepunkten zählen die romantische Ballade "Time stands still", das melodische, viel Frohsinn versprühende "No more war" (übrigens auch als Single ausgekoppelt), das mit einem flockigen Rhythmus versehene, mit feinem Akkordeon aufgepeppte, schöne "Vienna", der astreine, pure, klassische Honky Tonker "What are you doin' in my dreams" mit seinen gelungenen Fiddle- und Gitarren-Passagen, sowie die beiden powernden Honky Tonk-Countryrocker "Girls night in" und "Kiss my ashes"! Hardcore traditional Honky Tonk Countrymusic mit Herz - Becky Hobbs bleibt ihren Roots auch anno 2004 treu! Erwähnt sei hier auch das sehr gelungene, 16-seitige Booklet mit vielen schönen Fotos und allen Songtexten!

Jennings, Shooter - the other life [2013]
Shooter Jennings' sechstes Album ist ein kleines Genre übergreifendes Kunstwerk, "a genre busting piece of art", wie es ein amerikanischer Fan ausdrückt. Recht hat er. Waylon Jennings' und Jessi Colter's einziger Sohn präsentiert sich abwechslungsreicher als je zuvor. Roots, Americana, Country, Outlaw Music, Southern, Rock stehen im Vordergrund, aber auch Blues, Jazz und Psychedelic hinterlassen ihre Spuren auf "The other life", das dennoch ein nie den roten Faden verlierendes Werk wie aus einem Guß ist. Das Songmaterial ist klasse, enthält vielleicht sogar einige der besten Songs, die Jennigs bis heute geschrieben hat. Baumstark beispielsweise das bissige "Outlaw me", ein grandioser Outlaw Countryrocker, mit dem Jennings deutlich seinen Unmut über einige der "aufgeblasenen" jungen Countrystars Nashville's zum Ausdruck bringt, die seiner Meinung nach alle glauben, sie seien richtig "country" und "outlaw", aber fern dieser Lebenseinstellung agieren. Wie gesagt, das komplette Material ist vorzüglich. Shooter Jennings in ganz großer Form!

Ein Auszug aus einem U.S.-Review:
Six of these tracks were cut at the earlier album's sessions, including the firebrand "Outlaw You," the tune for the music video that was a musical middle finger to Eric Church and Jason Aldean (which has curiously gone unanswered). The Other Life is wilder, darker, rowdier, and more diverse than its predecessor. The brooding opener "Flying Saucer Song," a piano- and effects-driven number, is eventually transformed into a spaced-out, gospel-tinged song about space (outer and inner). It throws the listener for a loop, but resolutely belongs -- but only as the first cut. The set contains gorgeous country ballads such as "Wild and Lonesome" (with Patty Griffin on backing vocals) and the title track. There are fine, midtempo honky tonkers including "The Outsider" and the pedal steel- and banjo-saturated "The Low Road." There are steamy, electric, country-kissed, blues-rock numbers such as "A Hard Lesson to Learn," and the rock & roll boogie of "Mama It's Just My Medicine." There's a shuffling, snarling, futuristic, midtempo Americana tune in "15 Million Light Years Away," with reverb-drenched production that features a weathered (not weary) Jim Dandy -- from Black Oak Arkansas -- as a duet partner. The first single is a wooly, rowdy reading of Steve Young's "White Trash Song," with Scott H. Biram guesting. Young, an underground legend, authored the outlaw anthem "Lonesome Orn'ry & Mean," a signature tune for Jennings' dad. This reading of the 1971 tune contains skittering rockabilly drums, pumping upright bass, wailing pedal steel, hyper-acoustic guitars, piercing fiddles, and an additional verse. (Neither Jennings nor Biram took a co-write for it; something unheard of in Music City.) It underscores the iconoclastic legacy bequeathed to Jennings by his free-spirited parents. But more than that, the song is a celebration of all that doesn't fit -- anywhere. It's an apt self-referential metaphor. Album-closer "The Gunslinger" is Jennings' own anthem, drenched in country, rock, R&B, and even jazz, courtesy of the improvisational interplay between Jonathan Stewart's tenor saxophone, guitars, keyboards, and the rhythm section.
