Dave Alvin earned his crown as “the King of California” the hard way. A fourth-generation Californian, Alvin worked his way through various incarnations in order to arrive at this point. A longstanding monumental force in Los Angeles and California music, Alvin is essentially a blues player who writes and performs what he terms “American folk music.” Continue reading “Dave Alvin – Blackjack David (1998) [2002, MFSL Remastered, CD-Layer + Hi-Res SACD Rip]”

This exhilarating Canadian singer/songwriter grew up in the maritime province of Prince Edward Island off Canada’s East coast. Already at the age of twelve Brooke Miller made her un-timid mark singing in a punk band. And, with her looks, one is not hard put to imagine that the attractive artist could have made a successful career in acting or modeling.

For 40 years Allan Taylor, born in Brighton in 1945, has been considered as the consummate performer, a writer of literary gracefulness whose troubadour chronicles encapsulate the realism of otherwise unsung heroes, otherwise uncharted lives. On previous albums Allan Taylor sang songs about the road, about all the different countries and all the hotel rooms… “All Is One” goes deeper – into time and ultimately to the recognition that All Is One.

The album’s 12 tracks are a quite delightful mix, with one song especially outstanding in its beauty: ‘Made in the Shade’, devoted to Sara K. ‘s fellow artist and kindred spirit Chris Jones who died in 2005. This album is surely one of her very best, maybe THE best. It is certainly no less than sensational. Like good wine, this one has it all, that inner glow, that shining light that is the true sign of real art. Guitars, exotic instruments including the harp form an ideal backdrop for the singer Sara K. sounding articulate to the highest degree, her performance mature, completely lacking any harshness whatsoever.

An excellent collection of some of the best tracks from Judy Collins’ early Elektra albums, Colors of the Day will both entertain and leave you wanting more. Lovingly programmed (it leads off with her excellent country-pop hit “Someday Soon,” an Ian Tyson classic), this is Collins at her finest. Earlier explorations into folk-pop (“Both Sides Now”), British folk (“Sunny Goodge Street,” “In My Life”), and gospel (“Amazing Grace”) clearly show her eclecticism.

Irish songwriter, composer, vocalist, musician and poet, Brian Flanagan has worked with artists from diverse musical backgrounds such as Michael Flatley, Nadine Coyle, Eric Bibb, Nathan Carter, Finbar Furey, Brian Kennedy and Sharon Shannon. Brian is renowned for his ability to write to order, emotionally charged pieces that are immediately engaging. Love, loss, self-pity, recognizing chances and taking them – or not, almost mystical nature experiences, life-changing encounters, art and artists, environmental protection, human rights: it is truly a broad, moving and very current spectrum of themes which Irish singer-songwriter Brian Flanagan has worked through in the eleven tracks on this Audiophile SACD.

‘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]”
