Auszeichnungen Qobuz' Schallplattensammlung
Of the four records Rodney Crowell cut under his name before 1988's Diamonds & Dirt, three of them are still regarded as classics of the progressive country genre. The Houston native was well established as a songwriter (Emmylou Harris cut a slew of Crowell songs on her first five records), producer, and performer. Along with then-wife Rosanne Cash, he brought elements of new wave and early rock & roll into the genre, giving it a much needed kick in the rear. But as good as those albums were, Diamonds & Dirt put him on the map for good. In the 21st century, Crowell makes his living primarily as a hit songwriter, though he still records independently, cutting one critically acclaimed album after another. Co-produced by Crowell and Tony Brown, Diamonds & Dirt yielded five chart-topping singles, including "It's Such a Small World," a duet with Cash (who provided backing vocals throughout the set); a burning rockabilly version of pal Guy Clark's "She's Crazy for Leavin'"; the switchblade swagger of "Crazy Baby" (which sounds like Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe backing Jerry Lee Lewis); and the stellar ballad "After All This Time." That said, there is something else afoot here, too. A listen to "I Know You're Married" reveals that Crowell was a real fan of the early Beatles, and, on "I Didn't Know That I Could Lose You," of Roy Orbison. The only other cover on the set is a stellar swaggering honky tonk cum pub rock version of Harlan Howard's "Above and Beyond (The Call of Love)," which could have been recorded by England's Brinsley Schwarz. The remastered Legacy version of the album also includes three previously unreleased demos from the Diamonds & Dirt sessions and a wonderfully intimate set of liner notes. For contemporary country fans, this disc is such an important part of the development of modern music that it has virtually influenced everything that's come after it, making it impossible to ignore. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

Ein Gigant. Eine Institution. Mit solchen Etiketten behaftet wandern die meisten geradeaus ins Grab. Rodney Crowell hingegen weilt einerseits nach wie vor unter den Lebenden, andererseits ist seine Musik alles andere als angestaubt. Als Gitarrist aus dem Goldenen Zeitalter von Emmylou Harris, Schwiegersohn von Johnny Cash (er war mit seiner Tochter Rosanne verheiratet), Saufkumpel von Townes Van Zandt und Guy Clark und Songwriter von rund zwanzig Soloalben gehört der Texaner zu jener Sorte von Cowboys, die es mit den Jahren und der steigenden Anzahl von Alben zu einer immer höheren Qualifikation bringen – und diese Hommage an seinen heimatlichen Lone Star State beweist es. Crowell, der bald 70 Lenze zählt, dachte sich diese Platte zusammen mit anderen texanischen Kollegen aus, darunter Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Lee Ann Womack, Ronnie Dunn, Steve Earle, Billy Gibbons von den ZZ Top und Randy Rogers, aber auch mit Leuten, die nicht aus Texas stammen, wie Vince Gill oder der Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr. Gleichzeitig ist es eine Art, uns daran zu erinnern, dass seine Kunst vor allem vom Miteinander lebt. Freundschaft und Geselligkeit sind keine einfältigen Klischees für einen Songwriter und Gitarristen seines Kalibers. Und auf Texas liefert jeder Song erneut den Beweis dafür. Wirksame, integre, zusatzstofffreier Americana. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Rodney Crowell's The Outsider is a natural extension of his last two offerings: The Houston Kid and Fate's Right Hand. Where The Houston Kid was Crowell's autobiographical confessional and Fate's Right Hand was deeply philosophical and influenced by everything from Zen to the working through of anger, The Outsider digs deep into social and political consciousness. The album rocks harder than any Crowell record in the past, as evidenced by "Don't Get Me Started," which is an anti-war anthem that takes aim at the war in Iraq. Immediately following is "The Obscenity Prayer," written from the point of view of a hypocritical right-wing pleasure seeker whose positions are not only indefensible, they are, at worst, obscene. Conversely, the Zen-like advice in "Dancin' Circles Round the Sun" is a tough country rocker with killer rockabilly guitar lines by Stewart Smith and Hammond B3 grooves by John Hobbs. It is a testament to personal responsibility and awakening that exhorts and admonishes but never preaches. There is great tenderness here, as well, such as in the acoustically driven "Ignorance Is the Enemy," with its prayer-like cadence and spoken-word vocals by Emmylou Harris and John Prine. "Glasgow Girl" is as fine a country-rock love song as has been written in recent years. The album closes with "We Can't Turn Back Now," a rousing call for acceptance, forbearance, and perseverance, whose guitars and big bassline is graced by a stellar fiddle line and a beautifully delicate tin whistle winding through it all. Crowell -- still writing hits for "Hot 100" country artists to help finance and keep creative control of his recordings -- has matured into an artist who has the of hard-won experience that displays itself as poetically wrought wisdom. His work is full of humor, light, poignancy, and killer hooks. He's now written and recorded three big topic records, all of which surpass his early work. The only thing missing here now is a record on the other big topic: Love. Perhaps that's coming. Until then, The Outsider is the Rodney Crowell recording to listen to, debate with, and be inspired by. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

In the 21st century, the sizable majority of Christmas albums fall into one of two categories -- those made by artists with a sentimental streak who love celebrating the musical and social traditions, and the cynics who enjoy putting a snarky smirk on songs of the season. Rodney Crowell clearly lines up in the second camp judging from 2018's Christmas Everywhere, which in its first song includes the line "The season starts in August now, we'll see you at the mall," and in the second finds him crooning "Mama wants a kitchen sink, Daddy wants a stiffer drink, Grandma wants us to cut the crap, Grandpa wants a nice long nap." But if Christmas Everywhere is short on traditional reverence, Crowell sure seems to be having a lot of fun sending up the holidays. He digs into a smoky R&B groove on "When the Fat Guy Tries the Chimney on for Size," dips a hint of rockabilly into "Very Merry Christmas," and generates a classic country shuffle on "Christmas Makes Me Sad." Christmas Everywhere is also the rare Christmas album devoted entirely to original material written for this disc, and if this material doesn't rank with the best songs of Crowell's career, he's always been a gifted craftsman and his level of quality control here is impressive. Even the most playful numbers generate honest laughs and find Crowell singing with sincere enthusiasm, while he and his studio band pick up a storm. And the hardscrabble Yuletide tales of "Christmas in Vidor," the lonely heartsick nights of "Come Christmas," and the sad nostalgia of "Christmas in New York" are on hand to show Crowell can write seriously (if unconventionally) with the holiday in mind and make it stick. Christmas Everywhere won't replace that Mantovani Christmas album your grandfather has been playing for decades at family gatherings, but if you're tired of putting Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Family" on a loop for that party with your friends, Crowell and his pals will fill the bill with style. © Mark Deming /TiVo
