In her memoir Fun Home, cartoonist Alison Bechdel — a newly minted MacArthur Fellow — told the difficult story of her childhood in the family funeral home with a closeted gay father. Now her family’s most private moments are jumping from the comic-book page to a Broadway musical. We go inside a beloved Nashville music studio saved from the wrecking ball at the eleventh hour. Rosanne Cash explains why the great performers of classic American pop don’t get royalties, but their younger successors do. And Blake Mills, guitar virtuoso turned singer-songwriter, performs live.

(180 gr. schwarzes Vinyl im Standard-Cover mit DL-Card) John Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, legt eine Americana-Platte vor. Klassischer Delta & Country Blues und Ragtime, dazu neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen.nnJohn Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, machte endlich die Platte, die er immer machen wollte. Arkansas ist eine Americana-Platte. Von seinem neuen Heim in Nashville, Tennesse aus tauchte er eine Dekade lang tief in die Geschichte der Roots-Musik. Es gibt Interpretationen von Emmett Millers Anytime von 1924 oder den Jimmie Rodgers Tune Miss the Mississippi and You von 1932. Traditional Delta, Country Blues und Ragtime huldigen Mississippi John Hurt und Blind Blake. Dazu kommen neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen. The sonic glue that holds the project together is called The Good Road Band. The impressive lineup consists of legendary mandolin players Sam Bush, pedal steel innovator Russ Pahl, world famous electric guitar picker Guthrie Trapp, bass veteran Steve Mackey, cello virtuoso Nat Smith, and the groove of percussionist Josh Day. Combine that ensemble with Oates' warm and personal storytelling, and you have a one-of-a-kind experience that is authentic and unforgettable. The project originally began as a tribute to Oates' idol, Mississippi John Hurt . It evolved organically, during a series of Nashville recording sessions, into a unique, retrospective collection drawing from a wide range of Oates' musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, he say's , It's like Dixieland dipped in bluegrass and salted with Delta blues. The title track is propelled by a driving production that frames evocative images of the mist rising off the mighty Mississippi River and the expansiveness of the cotton fields in America's heartland. With the essence of roots music at its core, vintage and modern recording techniques are woven throughout the album. With this incredible band, Oates shines a light on popular songs from America's past long before the birth of rock 'n' roll. TRACKS: 1. Anytime 2. Arkansas 3. My Creole Belle 4.

Packaged in heavyweight gatefold sleeve and ful lcolour inner bags. Riven seen on vinyl for the very first time is considered by many as one of Nick most accomplished works. Originally released on CD back in 2013, Nick had had the pleasurable experience of recording stints with such highly acclaimed musicians as Lana Del Rey, Newton Faulkner and Steven Wilson, this brought about the Riven recordings. It's a typically eclectic mix of songs and styles, but with a light and a dark side, split down the middle by the title track. So, up front we have 6 minute songs like 'Juicy Fruit Girl' - a staccato paean to late 20th century popular culture with a witty look at things like Postman's Knock, along with 'Love Is Due' a rambling acoustic love story set around baggage in airports and beyond, to lighter tunes like 'Sunshine' inspired by the birth of Harper's son and that round shiny thing recently a feature in the sky in the UK. On the darker side Harper lurches into a visceral strident attack on Kelvin Mackenzie in 'Plague of Toads' and swings a cynical folky kick in the nuts to Nick Clegg in 'The Incredible Melting Man'. In essence it is the work of an artist given free reign to express himself outside the confines of the 'music business' devoid of compromise and led by artistic whims rather than commercial dictates. With Tchad Blake producing (Tom Waits, Peter Gabriel, Crowded House, etc.) and Jeremy Stacey on drums (Noel Gallagher, Waterboys, Sheryl Crow etc.) and guest appearances from Jon Leveller (Levellers), Jakko Jakszyk (King Crimson,Level 42) Lily Harper (Roy's grand-daughter), the legendary invisible Aussie rock singer Dave Graney and vocal ar-rangements by composer Ben Jones RIVEN has a rich, lush sound throughout, but never loses focus on Nick's trademark soaring vocals and blistering (mainly acoustic) guitar work.

Blind Blake's recordings, made in the 1920s and 1930s, set a standard for ragtime blues Guitar virtuosity that remains unmatched. His famous "double-thumb" right-hand technique is part of a syncopated sound that is unlike that of any other guitarist. His recordings, with their rhythmic drive and ingenious variations, remain a source of endless delight (as well as frustration) for today's acoustic blues guitarists. In this double DVD Ari Eisinger explains and demonstrates two key components of Bl
