Rosanne Cash – The Real Me

(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. 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.

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!

William Bell – Walking On A Tightrope

(click song title above to listen)

One of our favorite albums of 2016, This Is Where I Live was William Bell’s triumphant return to Stax Records and his first major release in almost four decades. Released on June 3rd, 2016, This Is Where I Live was produced by John Leventhal, who co-wrote this week’s poignant top tune with Rosanne Cash.

The album is nominated for two 2017 GRAMMY Awards (Feb 12th) – Best Traditional R&B Performance & Best Americana Album. Bell was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting at the 15th Annual Americana Honors & Awards Show, and last month he was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame.

William Bell signed to Stax in 1961 and delivered one of the iconic soul label’s earliest hits with “You Don’t Miss Your Water.” He also co-wrote, with Booker T. Jones, the classic “Born Under A Bad Sign” for Albert King, which was later famously covered by Cream, Jimi Hendrix and many others.

Coming soon to a city near you, don’t miss the amazing William Bell!

“A Memphis Legend is Back” – The New York Times
“It’s resonant, wise, and considered music, the kind of direct songwriting that helped Bell make his name” – Vice Noisey
“Still in excellent form…the most personal work Bell has ever created.” – Chicago Tribune
