With this second album produced by David Rawlings, Gillian Welch’s work and life partner, Willie Watson maintains his attachment to traditional country, blues and gospel from the early 20th century which would give birth to folk music in the 60s. From the first title, it’s an entire time period that emerges and carries us on Samson And Delilah. While he was singing solo on his previous album, here the former member of Old Crow Medicine Show called upon the talented gospel band from Nashville, the Fairfield Four. We still remain in an economy of instruments in order to be as authentic as possible, but those choirs bring warmth and spirituality to the songs. On The Road Again grows in strength and Watson doesn’t hesitate to blast his voice in answer to the choir feeding the song of small words, assents and onomatopoeia. Besides that, we don’t forget the banjo solos of The Cuckoo Bird or the complete ease of guitar picking on Leavin' Blues. It would seem that Willie Watson has acquired a certain confidence and maturity in his choice of titles and in their interpretation. The whole is a lot more colorful, still as deep and aspires to something more joyful. It is yet again a new perspective on deep America and folk music that is magnificently told to the tune of a harmonica that we don’t get tired of. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

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?

Woodstock: 50 Years Later

Woodstock wasn’t the first gathering of its kind dedicated to music. At the time, Newport was already a regular meetup for fans of the new rock & folk music that had come crashing upon the youth (American and otherwise) like a tidal wave. Festivals such as Monterey (California) or the Isle of Wight (U.K) had been all the talk of the previous summers. But Woodstock was by far and large the most memorable of them all, due to its unbridled, spontaneous nature, as well as its long list of famous performers. Case in point: 50 years later, eyes still light up when it’s mentioned.

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.
