After a gap of about three years between releases, Shirley Collins returned to recording with the 1967 LP The Sweet Primeroses. While the U.K. folk scene was undergoing some changes at the time, in part due to the influence of folksingers writing their own material and the emergence of folk-rock, those influences aren't felt at all on this set, which remains traditional to the core. Collins' distinctively resonant, slightly smoky/husky voice is accompanied only by her own guitar and banjo, as well as her sister Dolly Collins' portative organ; there are a few a cappella performances as well. Occasionally there are also choral backing vocals provided by the Young Tradition, although that group was not credited on the original release. The tracks on which she's backed by Dolly's organ in particular have a medieval, slightly haunting feel, as if you actually are listening to something being performed several centuries ago, not in the 1960s. Even given that Shirley Collins often performed British folk music of the most traditional sort, the starkness of this particular collection might make it among her less accessible works, at least for those in the process of acquainting themselves with her music. For those who know they like her voice, though, this won't fail to please them. The CD reissue adds four tracks from her 1963 EP Heroes in Love that, despite the four-year gap, are so similar in flavor that you wouldn't suspect they were recorded at a different time, though these feature only banjo accompaniment.

Johnny Cash dietro le sbarre

Due leggendari album dal vivo pubblicati alla fine degli anni Sessanta hanno dato un enorme spinta alla carriera di Johnny Cash trasformandolo in una star internazionale. Si tratta di due dischi diversi da tutti gli altri: sono stati registrati in prigione. Ma cosa ha portato il Man in Black a ritrovarsi in una sala da concerto così insolita?

Americana, alle radici dell’America

Il nome saprà anche di trovata commerciale un po’ fumosa, ma il genere Americana designa da una ventina d’anni quel mix di rock, country, blues e rhythm&blues. E come in ogni grande famiglia che si rispetti, si ritrovano un po’ tutti i personaggi: la figlia ribelle, lo zio colto, il padre irrequieto, la cugina esaltata…

Mark Knopfler e Dire Straits, un amore difficile

Il 14 aprile 2018, i Dire Straits facevano il loro ingresso nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ed erano in parecchi a pensare che fosse il momento dell’ «ora o mai più». Perfino Mark Knopfler sembrava toccato da quest’onore, nella speranza di essere premiato da Bob Dylan o Eric Clapton. Alla fine, i Dire Straits sono entrati nel pantheon dei rocker senza la loro star, che ha disertato una cerimonia tra le più tristi della storia. Quasi un simbolo del rapporto tra lui e il suo gruppo.
