One of the many "theme" albums the Louvin Brothers released during their tenure at Capitol Records (which was assembled from older recordings by the label two years after Ira Louvin's death), The Louvin Brothers Sing the Great Roy Acuff Songs finds Charlie and Ira interpreting 12 songs made famous by another one of country music's staunch traditionalists, Roy Acuff. Acuff's tunes prove to be a good match for the Louvins, especially on inspirational numbers such as "Wreck on the Highway" and "The Great Speckled Bird" and high-lonesome weepers like "Not a Word From Home" and "Branded Wherever I Go"; their clear, clean harmonies are superb as always and serve the songs well, while Ira's mandolin work is gutsy and strong. While the vintage early-'60s production is a bit too broad and echo-laden by contemporary standards (and isn't as flattering as the tighter mono recordings of their early sides), the arrangements are admirably spare, and the best of these tracks sound as honest and unaffected as the Louvin Brothers' finest work. The Louvin Brothers Sing the Great Roy Acuff Songs isn't a masterpiece along the lines of Tragic Songs of Life or Satan Is Real, but anyone in love with their glorious harmonies and emotional performing style will find this an enjoyable and rewarding listen.

In your panoramas...
The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.

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?
