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: Turner pleases the traditionalists – Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry. In short, he is the embodiment of country music's champion of the everyman. This night was special for him. He was celebrating an anniversary with his wife and his 18th with his label MCA.... »»»
Concert Review: Not much really changes for LaFarge – Just one look at the stage made it clear that this was not going to be a typical night with Pokey LaFarge. There were only a few guitars to be seen, which meant that LaFarge was going it alone. "I've been touring for years with a band," LaFarge told perhaps a few hundred people before he had even played a note.... »»»
