Rodney Crowell :: Tarpaper Sky


rodneycrowell-tarpapersky-300dpiIn 2010 had Rodney Crowell een plan: zijn nieuwe CD zou hij opnemen met dezelfde band waarmee hij in 1988 de artistieke en commerciële hit Diamonds & Dirt had gemaakt. Maar er kwam steeds wat tussen, zoals de zeer succesvolle duoplaat Old Yellow Moon met Emmylou Harris. Nu is er dan toch Tarpaper Sky en die is ronduit briljant. Dit is Crowell-Americana op zijn best. Ontroerende persoonlijke teksten, ballads, rootsrock en hardcore country. Liedjes die tot de beste uit zijn carrière behoren, een fantastisch band en Crowell die zingt als zelden tevoren. Luisteren is het beste geloven!

In 2010, Rodney Crowell took a notion. He called up most of the band that had played with him on his 1988 commercial breakthrough album Diamonds & Dirt and got them together in a recording studio. Here it was, two decades later. Bass player Michael Rhodes, drummer Eddie Bayers and guitarist Steuart Smith had become Nashville session royalty. Crowell had become one of the most admired songwriter/artists in America. But even they don’t often take the opportunity to record like this. In a circle, facing one another and truly hearing one another, with no headphones or glass walls to separate them, they cut live as a band, with the honesty and no-fixes spontaneity of the records that first inspired all of them as teenagers.
