While readers sometimes grow tired of listening to critics wax poetic about "the way things used to be," there's -- on occasion -- a good reason for it. Take the reissue of Good Time Blues by the Boys from Indiana, for instance. These songs, originally released in the mid-'70s, offer an easy side-by-side comparison with recent bluegrass recordings, and it's very rare, indeed, to find a current offering with this much traditional bluegrass soul. Interestingly, the music that completes this compilation was recorded in the midst of a progressive bluegrass revival, and there were probably many -- at the time -- who doubted the resilience of traditional (think Bill Monroe) bluegrass. Band regulars include vocalist and writer Aubrey Holt, bassist Jerry Holt, Dobro player Harley Gabbard, banjoist Noah Crase, and fiddler Paul Mullins. As the title of the collection suggests, the Boys from Indiana never forget the "blues" portion of bluegrass, turning out fine takes of "Feeling Blue," "The Girl in the Blue Velvet Band," and the title cut. The only negative comment about this collection is that it's 36 minutes long, which represents just a small portion of the four albums drawn from. The 14 songs and instrumentals on Good Time Blues are nonetheless top-notch, and the collection does an excellent job reminding listeners what authentic bluegrass actually sounds like.

10 Queens of Folk

An acoustic guitar. Sometimes not much else. But always a unique voice… In recent years, the folk revival has produced some new major and exceptional female singers, just like their elders in the sixties, and particularly the seventies. Some of these Queens of folk have earnt their place in the Hall of Fame, while others remain equally essential hidden gems. This (subjective) selection features ten of the best.

Joni Mitchell : the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, “Blue” hasn't aged a day since its release in June 1971. But why are today’s artists still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter ?

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?
