CD reviews for Chris Hillman

Bidin' My Time CD review - Bidin' My Time
With all the memorable music Chris Hillman created with The Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers and Desert Rose Band, he has nothing left to prove. He's a both a bona fide rock and country icon. Tom Petty, who owes an obvious debt to Hillman's Byrds (the Heartbreakers would never have brought the jangle hard and heavy, had The Byrds not first created the original template, and Tom Petty produced) appropriately produced this wonderful new country-rock collection. The album opens with a »»»
The Other Side CD review - The Other Side
A founding member of The Byrds, Flying Burritto Brothers and Desert Rose Band, Chris Hillman has been recording since the early 1960's. On his first album in more than seven years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member expertly fuses folk, bluegrass and gospel to craft a remarkably personal statement. Hillman's sweet, mellow tenor has aged gracefully and a stellar group of sidemen, including producer Herb Pederson, support Hillman's mandolin and guitar work with exquisite picking and ethereal harmonies. »»»
Chris Hillman
Tony Rice, Larry Rice, Chris Hillman and Herb Pederson pick up right where last year's "Out Of The Woodwork" left off: lots of great songs and lots of great singing and picking. Between them, they have made immense contributions to the worlds of bluegrass, country and country-rock. Their resumes include the Desert Rose Band, J.D. Crowe's New South, The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Hillmen, The Rice Brothers and The Dillards. Of the 13 tracks, 7 are originals - 5 by Hillman and 2 by Larry Rice. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
