Tracy Chapman's self-titled debut album of 1988 was an incredibly tough act to follow, but the folk-rocker delivered an inspired sophomore effort with Crossroads. While it falls short of the excellence of her stunning debut, Crossroads is a heartfelt, honest offering that's well worth obtaining. Dedicated to South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela, the anthemic "Freedom Now" is one of Chapman's best protest songs. Equally compelling is "Subcity," a lament for the poor, disenfranchised underclass that stands on the outside of the American Dream looking in. Much of the time, however, Chapman isn't going for immediacy -- introspective and subtle songs like "Bridges," "Be Careful of My Heart," and "All That You Have Is Your Soul" require at least several listens in order to be fully appreciated. ~ Alex Henderson

Americana, l’Amérique par les racines

L’étiquette a beau sentir le coup marketing fumeux, l’americana synthétise pourtant bien depuis une vingtaine d’années cette fusion du rock, de la country, du blues et du rhythm’n’blues. Et comme dans toutes les grandes familles, on y croise à peu près tout le monde : la fille rebelle, l’oncle cultivé, le père agité, la cousine habitée…

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 ?

Johnny Cash derrière les barreaux

Grâce à deux albums live entrés dans la légende, Johnny Cash a relancé sa carrière à la fin des 60’s, devenant une véritable superstar. Deux disques pas comme les autres car enregistrés en prison. Mais comment l’Homme en noir s’est-il retrouvé dans une salle de concert aussi inhabituelle ?
