Rosanne Cash - Santa Monica 2009

Now please don't shoot me... those reading my "now listening" bits on the top right of the page know my taste ranges beyond jazz. I've been a Dylan fan since my earliest teens (seeing him live with the "Under the Red Sky" tour in 1990 when I was twelve), and even though I keep being disgusted by the industry that is Nashville, I like his album "Nashville Skyline" a lot. His voice sounds so flexible there, and of course the duet with Johnny Cash is a highlight!

Nevertheless, in my ignorance, Cash remained something of a red towel for a long time, until I happened to stumble over the third (I think) of his "American Recordings", which of course got rave reviews in the papers here, as well. I got hooked quickly and bought them all, including the box set - mother's hymn book? Gee, may the sinners roast in hell... not sure what to make of it, but I look at it as something near-mythical in force, and also as something that's part of American history (and hence of course, looking back, European history, too). And I keep being fascinated.

More recently, I got hooked by the early albums of Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and yes - I confess! - even Linda Ronstadt's Capitol double disc set is now part of my collection... and of course by way of my rock'n'roll self-schooling I stumbled over The Byrds, buying all their albums up to the "(Untitled)/(Unreleased)" double disc set, and their "Sweethearts of the Rodeo" is a marvel!

So with my reservations gone, I had to check out this recent recording of Rosanne Cash, done to promote her recent album (which I have yet to check out). The songs were taken from a list compiled for her by Johnny when she was a teen and he was afraid she might end up completely ignorant of country music, so he put together a list of the most important songs. Rosanne Cash performs some of them, accompanied by her husband, John Leventhal on acoustic guitar. In between, she talks about her album, the songs, her dad and the ominous list. A very beautiful set.

Wonderful! I certainly appreciate your eclecticism - plenty of space for Rosanne Cash and Sun Ra on my shelf. Thanks again.

nick said...

This looks wonderful. Thanks very much! Don't ever feel the need to apologize or justify your eclectic tastes! I'm sure everyone who follows your blog is happier as a result of your eclecticism.

Nothing wrong with a bit of country, but Rosanne is a bit mainstream for me.
I prefer more edgy singers like Alison Kraus or Gillian Welsh or males like Buddy Miller, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, & john Hiatt.

ubu said...

Well, so far I prefer the "angelic" ones... Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons... and I adore Johnny Cash.

But then as I said, I really don't know much about country...
