CD reviews for Gillian Welch

Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg CD review - Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg
Gillian Welch's album "Revival" was a revelation. The fact that T Bone Burnett - the ultimate roots rock curator - produced it, gave good reason to give it immediate attention, and insightful songs like "Barroom Girls" and "By the Mark" cemented the news that Welch was truly something special. With "Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg," Welch has expanded the original 10-track album into a 21-song opus. And while this extensive collection of »»»
The Harrow & the Harvest CD review - The Harrow & the Harvest
Eight years ago, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings released the exploratory and occasionally misunderstood "Soul Journey," where Welch took a more directly personal stance in her writing as the duo injected a shade more vitality (and electricity) into their old time musical presentation. Maybe the album's mixed reviews had a negative impact on Welch, or maybe her creative well was lowered by a quartet of excellent albums over a seven-year period. In any event, Welch was beset by a »»»
Soul Journey
Bass and drums on a Gillian Welch album? It's true. The rural-sounding songstress, who makes most of her music with only the most spartan of instrumental settings, broadens her sound on this, her fourth album.Son Volt-er Jim Boquist contributes bass, Mark Ambrose offers up a little acoustic guitar, Ketcham Secor brings some fiddle and Greg Leisz adds Dobro to the mix on this disc, which hews close to Welch's signature sound: a little Appalachia along with attention to the no-nonsense elements of country music. »»»
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: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal – Grammy nominations do not make the artist, but Yola and opener Amythyst Kiah underscored time and again on this night that the honors were well deserved. In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well. The clear winners... »»»

Play the Hits CD review - Play the Hits
When The Mavericks call an album "Play The Hits," It really should be qualified as "Play The Selective Hits" because this band has never been especially interested in performing only what's commercially viable.  »»»
