At the height of outlaw country, Willie Nelson pulled off perhaps the riskiest move of the entire bunch. He set aside originals, country, and folk and recorded Stardust, a collection of pop standards produced by Booker T. Jones. Well, it’s not entirely accurate to say that he put away country and folk, since these are highly idiosyncratic interpretations of “Georgia on My Mind,” “All of Me,” “Moonlight in Vermont,” and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” blending pop, country, jazz, and folk in equal measures.

Lightfoot’s commercial peak came with this album, which topped the U.S. charts, containing both the number one title song and the Top Ten hit “Carefree Highway.” But songs like “Somewhere U.S.A.” and “High and Dry” are textured, catchy folk-rock on a par with the better-known tunes.

Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town is a transitional effort that bridges the curveballs of Emmylou Harris’ earliest solo work with the more traditional country albums that comprise the bulk of the second phase of her career. For the first time, she covers no Gram Parsons tunes or pop music chestnuts, relying instead on newly exited Hot Band member Rodney Crowell for two songs (“Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight” and “I Ain’t Living Long Like This”) and Dolly Parton for another (the devastating “To Daddy”); the highlight is a gorgeous cover of Jesse Winchester’s “Defying Gravity.” Continue reading “Emmylou Harris – Quarter Moon In A Ten Cent Town (1978) [1979, MFSL Remastered, CD-Quality + Hi-Res Vinyl Rip]”

‘Early Hours’ takes Eleanor McEvoy’s music to new heights. Couched now in a mature jazz/blues context, her melodic and sensitive songs – packed as ever with wry, insightful social observation – benefit from first rate performances. “It would be a tragedy given the exquisite understated magnificence and warmth of these 42 minutes if all Eleanor McEvoy were remembered is ‘fl Woman’s Heart”. Eleanor’s Dido-before-Dido voice and some of the best happy/sad songs she has ever written plus deconstructed classics by Chuck Berry and Bert Jansch, this is her ‘White Ladder’, her ‘Life for Rent’. a triumph. MOJO. Continue reading “Eleanor McEvoy – Early Hours (2004) [Hi-Res SACD Rip]”

The second of Willie Nelson’s Frank Sinatra tributes — records that belong on the same continuum as Stardust yet are their own distinct thing — That’s Life is a jauntier affair than My Way. Where that 2018 record never quite wallowed in melancholy, it seems like a saloon album compared to That’s Life, an LP that tends to lean into the swinging side of Sinatra so much, it can almost seem like a tip of the hat to the Chairman of the Board’s stature as king of Las Vegas.

Like her signature song “Ode to Billie Joe,” Bobbie Gentry is an enigma by choice. “Ode to Billie Joe” deliberately leaves out details that would spell out the story and Gentry removed herself from public view sometime in the late ’70s for reasons that have never been fully disclosed. Many have tried to track her down because her cult not only persisted into the 21st century, it even grew — so much so that an observer would be forgiven if they believed Gentry was something of an outsider artist instead of a mainstay on television who hosted a variety show of her own.

Elvis Presley headed to Nashville in June of 1970 for a series of marathon sessions at RCA Studio B, cutting enough material to be spread over three albums — That’s The Way It Is, Elvis Country (I’m 10,000 Years Old), and Love Letters from Elvis, to be precise. Each of these records had their share of overdubs — Elvis Country was also connected by excerpts of “I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago,” an intriguing idea that was maddening in practice — so the idea behind From Elvis in Nashville is inspired: the box presents those session as a whole, without overdubs or any kind of sweetening.
