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.

Kentucky Headhunters, The with Johnnie Johnson - meet me in bluesland [2015]
"Incredible"! So bringt es ein begeisterter U.S.-Fan auf den Punkt! Großartige Kooperation der urigen Southern Rock-Haudegen und dem legendären Pianisten von Chuck Berry, die gemeinsam ein mächtig kochendes Blues-/Bluesrock-/Boogie-Album einspielten. Ja, die Kentucky Headhunters spielen den Blues, allerdings gepaart mit ihrem typischen, straighten, von fetten Gitarren geprägten Southern Rock-Indikatoren. Entstanden sind die Aufnahmen im Jahre 2003, als Johnnie Johnson, den das Musikmagazin "Rolling Stone" einmal als "The greatest sideman in Rock'n Roll" bezeichnete, nach einer ausgedehnten Tournee mit den Rolling Stones, bei der er das Piano bediente, nach Kentucky flog, um seine guten Freunde, die Kentucky Headhunters, bei den Aufnahmesessions für deren Album "Soul" zu unterstützen, die ihn baten, das ein oder andere Stück mit seinem wunderbaren Klavierspiel zu veredeln. Doch aus diesen Session wurde viel mehr. Die Protagonisten spielten und spielten gemeinsam, hatten dermassen viel Spaß, dass diese Sessions gar nicht mehr enden wollten. Vor allem der rockin' Blues hatte es ihnen angetan. Die Tapes mit diesen hervorragenden Aufnahmen verschwanden anschließend in den Archiven - bis heute. 10 Jahre nach dem Tod von Johnson, der 2005 im Alter von 80 Jahren verstarb, entschieden sich die Kentucky Headhunters nun, diese Prachtaufnahmen zu veröffentlichen. Welch ein Glück! Was für ein leidenschaftlicher, ausgelassener, großartiger Trip in das Land des southern-rockigen Blues und Boogie. Nehmen wir nur den fetten, baumstarken Opener "Stunblin'", ein prächtiger "stompin'" Roadhouse-/Southern Rock'n Roll-Boogie, vollgepackt mit "hämmerndem" Piano und kochenden, straighten, typischen KHH-E-Gitarren-Riffs, den Slide-getränkten, brodelnden Blues-Shuffle "Walking with the wolf" (großartige Slideguitar-Linien, tolles Piano-Solo), den wundervoll rockenden Blues-Boogie "She's got to have it" (exzellente Piano-/Gitarren-Bgleitung, tierisches E-Gitarren-Solo), den straighten Riff-/Southern Rocker "Party in heaven", den hinreissenden, dabei ungemein kraftvoll und rau in Szene gesetzten Slow-Blues "Meet me in bluesland" (grandiose, ausgedehnte, von schönen Piano-Fills umgarnte Lead Gitarrenläufe, schönes Klavier-Solo und toller, inspirierter, intensiver Gesang von Richard Young), oder das voller Southern Soul steckende "Shufflin' back to Memphis", mit seiner exzellenten Slideguitar-/Klavier-Begleitung - welche Nummer man auch herauspickt, das Zeug dampft, bluest, rockt und "kickt", was das Zeug hält. Übrigens, auch der Sound ist spitzenmässig. Toll, dass dieses Material nun endlich der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht wurde. Famos!

Aus der Original-Produktbeschreibung:

On January 25, 2003, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Johnnie Johnson -- the man Rolling Stone called “the greatest sideman in rock and roll” for his groundbreaking piano work with Chuck Berry -- stepped on stage at Houston, Texas’ Reliant Stadium. He joined his hosts, The Rolling Stones, for a rousing rendition of Honky Tonk Women. After hanging out all night with Keith Richards, Johnson got on a plane and flew to Kentucky. There he reunited with his good friends, Grammy-winning Southern blues-rockers The Kentucky Headhunters -- brothers Richard and Fred Young, Greg Martin, Doug Phelps and Anthony Kenney. The plan was to have Johnnie lay down some piano for the band’s upcoming release, Soul. But the vibe was too strong and the music too good, so the tape just kept rolling. With songs and arrangements furiously being created on the spot and everything recorded live as it happened over the course of three days, a magical musical event was underway. Because the whole session was spontaneous, there were no immediate plans to release an album. After Johnnie’s death in 2005, the tapes, while never forgotten, remained unissued. The performances, which can now be heard on Meet Me In Bluesland, found Johnson playing some of the deepest and most rocking blues piano of his legendary career. With The Kentucky Headhunters at their down-home best, the album is a country-fried, blues-infused party from start to finish. The album grooves from the raunchy rock of Stumblin’ to the slide-fueled Superman Blues to the roof-raising version of Little Queenie to the salacious She’s Got To Have It (the last vocal Johnson ever recorded). “The minute Johnnie sat down with us, the music was a kind of ecstasy,” says guitarist/vocalist Richard Young. “Johnnie made us play like real men,” says guitarist/vocalist Greg Martin. “Playing with him, the groove got bigger and much more grown up.” Drummer Fred Young adds, “We all admired Johnnie from the start. The first time we played with him was the first time I ever felt like we were doing it right. The music we made on Meet Me In Bluesland is as good as it gets.” The relationship between Johnson and The Kentucky Headhunters dated back to 1992. Headed to New York for a Grammy Awards party, Greg picked up the new Johnnie Johnson CD, Johnnie B. Bad, for the ride. The band listened to nothing else all the way to New York. Having no idea he’d be at the party, they were shocked to see Johnnie Johnson sitting alone at a table. After some quick introductions, the musicians talked for hours, becoming fast friends. In 1993 they released their first collaboration, That’ll Work, on Nonesuch. They took the show on the road, playing gigs from the West Coast to New England, from Chicago’s Buddy Guy’s Legends to New York City’s Lone Star Café. They performed at The Jamboree In The Hills in Belmont County, Ohio, where Johnson, with the Headhunters triumphantly jamming behind him, played to over 30,000 fans. From their very first meeting, Johnson and The Kentucky Headhunters stayed close, getting together whenever possible. In 2003, when the band asked Johnson to record with them again, he couldn’t wait to get back to Kentucky and make music with his friends. Over the next three days, they created an album filled with rollicking, timeless performances. “Johnnie’s music was spontaneous, organic, magic energy,” says Greg. “During the recordings, everything was off-the-cuff and easy; a higher power just took over. This album is special, and we’re very happy in 2015 that it’s coming to fruition.” Adds Fred, “Johnnie gave us the gift of letting us know what it was like to do something great.”

Leftover Salmon - something higher [2018]
Leftover Salmon gelten in der Jam-Szene als eine absolute Institution. Gesegnet mit höchsten musikalischen Fähigkeiten folgte die 1989 in Boulder/Colorado gegründete Truppe um ihre beiden "Köpfe" Drew Emmitt (vocals, guitars, mandolin, fiddle) und Vince Herman (vocals, guitars) von Beginn an in etwa der musikalischen Route solcher Kollegen wie beispielsweise Little Feat, Grateful Dead, New Grass Revival und The Band, um daraus ihren ganz eigenen Sound zu kreieren, in dem sie all deren Einflüsse geschickt miteinenader kombinierten. Sie spielen alles, von grassigen Stücken über Countryrock, bis hin zu funkigen Klängen, kernigem, Southern-fueled Rock, Americana und Rootsrock. Dabei sind die Songs immer klasse strukturiert, bieten aber auch genug Spielraum für die grandiosen, jammigen Ausflüge der einzelnen Musiker, um ihre herausragenden Fähigkeiten demonstrieren. Das ist eine faszinierende, packende Verbindung von elektrischen und akustischen Instrumenten, von brodelnden Rock-Grooves und filigranen (Blue)Grass-Sequenzen, zuweilen vergleichbar mit solchen Bands wie Railroad Earth und The String Cheese Incident. Die Variabilität der Band und ihrer einzelnen Musiker ist ein Genuß! Produziert hat das Werk, wie auch schon die beiden Vorgängeralben, Los Lobos' Steve Berlin. Das Album startet mit dem herrlich frischen, in eine traumhafte Melodie gebetteten Country-/Americana-Rocker "Places", in dem sich vielschichtige Gitarren (acoustic, electric, Pedal Steel), klimperndes Piano (Erik Deutsch) und ein schön flockiger Groove zu einer untrennbaren Einheit verbinden, ebenso wie ein eine gewisse California-Lockerheit mit einem unverwechselbaren Southern-Spirit. Ein fantastischer Auftakt! Deutlich rockiger und kerniger kommt das wunderbar jammig und funky groovende, Bläser unterstütze "Show me something higher". Stark hier die gefälligen E-Gitarren-Linien und der tolle E-Gitarren-/Piano-Schlagabtausch im Break, sowie die satten Bläser-Fills. Eine richtig "heiße" Nummer mit viel Biß. JJ Grey & Mofro lassen ein wenig grüßen. Genial auch wieder das völlig lockere (herrlich lässiges Drumming), ein frisches, unterschwelliges Southern-Feeling vermittelnde, aber auch mit grassigen Instrumenten (akustische Gitarren, Mandoline) angereicherte, völlig lockere "Southern belle" (tolles Klavier). Man riecht sie hier förmlich, die "Southern-Breeze". Klasse auch der "laid-back Rasta vibe" von dem großartigen "House of cards", der bluegrassige, 6 1/2-minütige, furiose Jam-Trip "Evermore", der spacig-grassige Jamrocker "Astral traveler", das geniale Instrumental "Game of thorns", sowie der jammige, dabei mit einer wunderbaren Melodie versehene Bluegrass-/Roots-/Americana-/Countryrocker "Winter's gone". Leftover Salmon feiern im nächsten Jahr ihr 30-jähriges Jubiläum - und sie klingen noch heute genauso spannend, aufregend und reizvoll, wie zu ihrer ersten Stunde. Wie eingangs festgestellt: Eine absolute, ewig hungrige und sich weiter entwickelnde Institution der Jam-Szene mit einem fantastischen, neuen Album. Long live Leftover Salmon!

Magpie Salute, The - high water ll [2019]
Zweites, voller Dampf, Power und baumstarkem "rootsy and bluesy Rock'n Roll" steckendes Studioalbum und Sequel zu dem letztes Jahr erschienenen "High water l" von The Magpie Salute, der aktuellen Band um die beiden ex The Black Crowes-Gitarristen Rich Robinson und Marc Ford, sowie Sven Pipien (Bass), ebenfalls ehemals The Black Crowes. Vervollständigt wird die Truppe von Matt Slocum (Keyboards) und Joe Magistro (Drums), alles exzellente Musiker, sowie dem hervorragenden Lead Sänger und Frontmann John Hogg. Zusammen fabrizieren die Sechs ein wunderbar fettes Gebräu aus erdigem, bluesigerm, stark Gitarren orientiertem Rock/Southern Rock/ Roots Rock und Jam Rock, der durchaus artverwandt mit dem der "Krähen" ist. Und das ist auch gut so! Das Songmaterial ist erstklassig - genauso gut strukturiert, wie jammig freizügig und spielfreudig. Die Musiker, vor allem die Gitarristen Rich Robinson und Marc Ford, bekommen jede Menge Freiraum für ihr exzellentes Spiel. The Magpie Salute gelingt mit "High water ll" ein absoluter Volltreffer, der nicht nur die Gefolgschaft der ehemaligen The Black Crowes vollends begeistern dürfte.

Hier noch ein Original U.S.-Review:

Here's the release of High Water II, the highly-anticipated second studio album from Rich Robinson’s latest band, The Magpie Salute.
Robinson (The Black Crowes) is again joined by fellow-travelers Marc Ford (The Black Crowes) on guitar, bassist Sven Pipien (The Black Crowes), drummer Joe Magistro, and keyboardist Matt Slocum, along with the remarkable John Hogg again handling the vocals. Together, the band conjures up a thick stew of psychedelia-tinged Americana Rock & Roll; a clear extension and expansion of the ideas we heard in their 2018 studio album High Water I.
Densely layered and packed full of musical ideas, these twelve tunes aren’t, with the exception of a few choruses, exactly “sing-along” songs. They’re most definitely “feel along” songs; the kind you’ll listen to way more than once, discovering new things with repeated plays. What we have here is a band in search of the source, the central universal vibe, and they’re getting mighty close.
The Magpie Salute means business and they prove it with opener “Sooner or Later.” Everything you need to know about the album is contained in this track. The band fills every sonic frequency from the opening bars, yet Hogg’s vocals and stream-of-consciousness lyrics still grab your attention and rise above the maelstrom of sound, then the nearly-chanted chorus gives you a soft place to land between verses and righteously buzzy lead breaks. A deep bass and piano open then settles into a very Stones-y groove on “Gimme Something” that is a straight-up visit to the church of Rock, right down to the “take me higher” chorus. Preach it. End of Summer track “Leave it All Behind” then kicks hard on the power of Joe Magistro’s heavy-hitting drums, then sneaks in a brief, trippy Beatle-esque middle section complete with vibrato chords.
Some powerful horn arrangements lift the country-tinged Americana of “In Here” to another place entirely. This stand-out track feels like a spirit-lifting anthem for every trembling searcher who remains undaunted. The Magpie Salute finally slows things down a bit and lets you catch your breath with the sad and pretty porch-picking open of “You and I” before building to another powerful and untethered finish; Robinson’s guitar mirroring every emotion in the vocals. The same template works, in spades, on “Mother Storm.” The spare acoustic open lays a foundation the band uses to build sound and emotion to a gorgeous peak, that leads to a long, slow fade-out that feels like waking up from a difficult but important dream. That mid-career Stones-y vibe deep in the band’s DNA returns on “Mirror Mix,” creating a bed of sound and vibration that listeners will want to lay down on while absorbing the “Feel what’s on the inside” chorus.
The mournfully beautiful Don Quixote-esque ode “Lost Boy,” featuring a guest turn on vocals and fiddle from Alison Krauss is a quiet gem that’ll drop tears in many beers. The band then switches gears entirely as the trippy sonic hi-jinx return on the sassy “Turn It Around.” With its strutting “Jean Genie” vibe, and gnarly guitar line snaking throughout, this is the kind of track that would be a rock radio hit if rock radio still existed. The trip peaks with “Life is a Landslide” as the first few ominous opening bars quickly give way to a bouncy through-the-looking-glass jaunt that sneaks in a heavy survival tip: “Life is a landslide you ride along or you die.” Following on that theme, the band reminds you to “live in the moment” with the bouncy blues/funk of “Doesn’t Really Matter.” But even this strutting, seemingly straight-ahead rocker surprises with an unexpected, blissed-out and dreamy middle section that then shifts back, on a dime, to a re-funkified coda. It’s that kind of extra effort that sets this band apart.
Album closer “Where is This Place” is a journey all its own. Building from the band’s slowest, swampiest opening groove and built on a loose guitar loop that I can’t quite call a “riff,” this jam has enough space for all the players to contribute and a tribal/hypnotic chorus that matches the guitar line. This is the band working toward its core essence; they’re not here to explain anything, they’re trying to get to a place of universal feeling and they want you to come along. You’re going to want to join them on High Water II.
