This LP, a certified double-platinum album, captures Campbell's appeal at his most mainstream, mixing midtempo country-pop, spiced by a smooth if unambitious cover of Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" and the prettiest version of Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe" ever done. The latter two make the album hipper than Campbell himself seemed to most of us at the time. On the other hand, there's ample romantic pop here, including his heartfelt, string-laden performance of the McKuen/Brel "If You Go Away" and "Words." Right there at the center of Campbell's appeal is the still-beautiful title track (for which he had composer Jimmy Webb's organ hauled to the studio to re-create its exact sound from the demo) and "Dreams of the Everyday Housewife," alongside midtempo country-pop like Billy Ed Wheeler's sprightly "Ann" and Campbell's own "Fate of Man." Sonny Curtis' "The Straight Life" is closer in spirit to the Mary Tyler Moore theme song (still a year or so away) than to the work of an ex-Buddy Holly compadre, and Sonny Bono's singsongy divorce ode, "You Better Sit Down Kids," did little to enhance the future congressman's musical credibility. He saves the best for last" "That's Not Home," the most heartfelt song here. The production is excellent throughout, if a little overly reliant on strings. ~ Bruce Eder

Guy Clark, poète et troubadour

Il était vénéré par Johnny Cash et de nombreux autres mais resta dans l’ombre jusqu’à sa mort, il y a deux ans, en mai 2016. Mais qui était Guy Clark, immense songwriter texan, narrateur hors-pair et troubadour à la voix rocailleuse dont les compositions furent interprétées par toutes les pointures de la country et du folk ?

Merle Haggard, le bad boy de la country

L’alcool, la prison, la drogue et la misère. Merle Haggard qui pratiqua les quatre passa sa vie à chanter l’Amérique des marginaux et des laissés-pour-compte. Instigateur du son de Bakersfield, il épurera la country music pour rendre son propos encore plus incisif.

Norah Jones en 10 chansons

Même si ses albums paraissent sur le label Blue Note, Norah Jones n’a jamais été vraiment jazz. Comme elle n’a jamais vraiment été pop, ni folk, country ou soul… Depuis le début des années 2000, la chanteuse et pianiste américaine a toujours tout fait pour flouter, voire éradiquer les frontières stylistiques au profit de sa propre musique apatride, qu’elle adore partager avec d’autres musiciens venus d’horizons divers. Petit tour de son monde en 10 titres.
