rosanne cover with sticker1 d9602b77 94ea 435f 9b8b b2f7afaa25b4 1 Kings Record Shop 30th AnniversaryHappy Release Day! Sony Legacy celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering LP King’s Record Shop with a special edition 180-gram vinyl release and digital download with bonus tracks. Released on June 26, 1987, the album would prove a pivotal one not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The set would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single record. Cash’s covers of her father’s “Tennessee Flat Top Box”, John Hiatt’s “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”, John Stewart’s “Runaway Train” as well as “If You Change Your Mind,” a song she’d written with steel guitar player Hank DeVito, all climbed to the top of the chart.

Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.

(click song title above to listen)

This is the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad

Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering King’s Record Shop was released on June 26, 1987 and it would prove a pivotal album not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The album would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single album.

King’s Record Shop is named after a store in Louisville, Kentucky which was owned by Gene King, younger brother of Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter Pee Wee King (“Tennessee Waltz”). Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic with a special 180-gram vinyl edition including bonus tracks available via digital download coming Friday July 7th!

Okkervil River – Seven Year Ache

(click song title to listen)

In December of 2013 Okkervil River‘s mastermind Will Sheff funded a short film inspired by the song “Down Down the Deep River” from their lp The Silver Gymnasium. It was the centerpiece of the album and recounts Sheff’s childhood growing up in the very small town of Meriden New Hampshire during the 1980s.

“I wanted to make a short film to dramatize the song and pay homage to children’s science fiction and fantasy adventure films like ‘The Goonies’ and ‘E.T.’ that influenced me as a child”. The dreamlike, 35-minute, nostalgic film uses local actors and features cinematography from Johnny North and production design by Alan Lampert.

Two month’s after the the release of The Silver Gymnasium, the band released a third installment of their Golden Opportunities series featuring an assortment of cover songs. Sheff tried his hand at five tunes dating back to the 1980s including “The End of Innocence” by Don Henley, Cyndi Lauper’s “Money Changes Everything”, “Dance Hall Days” by Wang Chung and this week’s top tune, a sublime take on “Seven Year Ache” by Rosanne Cash.

Okkervil River released their eighth full-length album, Away, in September of 2016 on ATO Records. The album features contributions from Marissa Nadler, Jonathan Meiburg and members of the classical group yMusic. Click HERE for news and upcoming tour dates!
