Bobbie Gentry seized the opportunities afforded her by a smash debut single by designing her second album as a quasi-autobiographical portrait of the American South. Gentry nodded at her ambition by naming the LP The Delta Sweete, a title that suggests a set of interconnected songs, if not quite a concept album. The Delta Sweete doesn't deliver a unified narrative, it's a collection of short stories offering variations on a particular theme -- namely, the peculiarities of the South. It's no coincidence that Southern eccentricities flourished on "Ode to Billie Joe," her runaway 1967 hit. In a sense, The Delta Sweete functions as an explicit sequel to "Ode to Billie Joe," trading upon keenly observed vignettes and languidly funky rhythms, elements that underpin the LP's 12 songs, whether they're written by Gentry or not. A quarter of the album is dedicated to covers, and they're not left-field choices, either. "Big Boss Man" is a Jimmy Reed tune that had just been recorded by both Charlie Rich and Elvis Presley, the blues standard "Parchman Farm" became a '60s standard after being adapted by Mose Allison, John D Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road'' was turned into a garage rock standard by the British group the Nashville Teens, and Doug Kershaw's "Louisiana Man" was well on its way to becoming a country classic in 1968. Gentry doesn't replicate the original arrangements of these at all, she breaks them open and expands them in a fashion that exists somewhere between psychedelic pop and Las Vegas revue. The Delta Sweete occupies that place as a whole, alternating between showstopping extravaganzas and genuinely trippy looks inward. This curious blend didn't find an audience in 1968; it nearly upended Gentry's career, failing to generate a hit and stalling at 132 on Billboard's Top 200. Belonging neither to the mainstream nor the counterculture, The Delta Sweete is a beguiling oddity that's simultaneously ornate and spooky. Over the years, it deservedly found its cult.

10 légendes du blues

Le 21 juin, on célèbre les 20 ans de la disparition d’un des rois du blues : John Lee Hooker. Mais le géant n’a pas emporté le blues dans sa tombe. Cette musique enregistrée depuis plus d’un siècle continue à irriguer toute la musique pop, et à produire de grands disques (comme le dernier album des Black Keys). Il est temps de réviser les classiques, en dix portraits de bluesmen historiques, dont une blueswoman.

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 ?

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 ?
