On April 5, 2010, the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia, owned by coal giant Massey Energy, was destroyed in an explosion. A total of 29 miners were killed in what was the worst mining disaster in America for 40 years. While the CEO should have spent the rest of his life behind bars for violating the safety regulations that protected his employees, he was only faced with a fine and a few months in prison. Worse still, he then went into politics. Ten years on, who remember the victims? Well, Musician Steve Earle certainly does. The Pope of Americana has even dedicated his 2020 release to the tragedy which has now been turned into a play called Coal Country by playwrights Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen. The duo asked Earle to write songs for the show, some of which can be found here along with several other compositions. With that unmistakable gruff voice and a roots approach that mixes country, rock, folk, bluegrass and blues, his music just got a whole lot more impressive here and is at times moving, particularly when he recites the names of the 29 workers who lost their lives on It’s About Blood. As always with Steve Earle, anti-capitalist activism is at the heart of his art. But he wanted to use his music for something meaningful here and hopes it will change the minds of Trump voters, who currently make up 68% of the electorate in West Virginia. “Given the way things are now, it was maybe my responsibility to make a record that spoke to and for people who didn’t vote the way that I did. One of the dangers that we’re in is if people like me keep thinking that everyone who voted for Trump is a racist or an asshole, then we’re fucked, because it’s simply not true. I wanted to speak to people that didn’t necessarily vote the way that I did, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything in common. We need to learn how to communicate with each other. And the way to do that — and to do it impeccably —is simply to honour those guys who died at Upper Big Branch”. And impeccably he does it, for as an accomplished troubadour in American mythology, Steve Earle knows just how to avoid that cumbersome, unnatural feel that music often has when there’s a “message” behind it. Needless to say, this is one of the most powerful albums he has ever written. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Steve Earle has always commended his two main idols. In 2009, he dedicated a tribute album, Townes, to Townes Van Zandt and ten years later he did the same for Guy Clark with the album Guy. Earle is an unparalleled author, a fantastic poet with his signature gravelly voice and an immense songwriter whose songs have been covered by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Bobby Bare, Vince Gill and George Strait. Although in 2016 Clark sadly passed away, he will remain one of the best songwriters who told stories of living on the fringes of society like few others. At 19 years of age, Earle had the chance to play bass in his group.“Townes and Guy were like Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg for me” Earle reminisces, “When it comes to mentors, I’m glad I had both. If you asked Townes what it’s all about, he’d hand you a copy of Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee by Dee Brown. If you asked Guy the same question, he’d take a piece of paper and teach you how to diagram a song, what goes where. Townes was one of the all-time great writers, but he only finished three songs during the last fifteen years of his life. Guy had cancer and wrote songs until the day he died. He painted, he built instruments, he owned a guitar shop in the Bay Area where the young Bobby Weir hung out. He was older and wiser. You hung around with him and knew why they call what artists do disciplines. Because he was disciplined”.Now 64 years of age, Steve Earle has himself become a wise man and an icon of alternative country music that is always keen to share and contribute to values, ideas, sounds and musical heritage. With his unique voice, he showcases the very best of Clark’s work here. Earle maintains a certain measure of classicism in these intense versions of the classic tracks Desperados Waiting for the Train and That Old Time Feeling and brings the album to a poignant close with Old Friends featuring just the right mix of old friends: Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Terry Allen, Jerry Jeff Walker and Jo Harvey Allen. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Steve Earle (1955) is een van de ongekroonde koningen van het Amerikaanse singer-songwriter-genre. Op zijn albums laat de muzikant horen alles behalve eenkennig te zijn en pendelt hij tussen countryrock, Americana, folk en rootsrock. Ook zijn album Low Highway uit 2013 wordt gekenmerkt door een breed palet aan stijlen. Earle wisselt stevige countryrock af met onvervalste bluesgrass en ingetogen luisterliedjes. De teksten zijn zeer persoonlijk, zoals in het nummer "Remember Me", dat verhaalt hoe Earle een deel van de jeugd van zijn zoontje moest missen toen hij werd opgepakt wegens drugsbezit. © TiVo
