Steve Earle & the Dukes – “Guy” This album is a tribute to Guy Clark who died in 2016. Mr. Clark has been described by many fans and critics as one of America’s greatest songwriters ever. It is fitting that another master songwriter, Steve Earle, has put together this tribute album. It appears that a great songwriter like Mr. Earle knows how to play up the strengths of another songwriter’s songs. Mr. Earle knows when to play tough or tender depending on the mood and the lyrics of each song. “Guy” has sixteen of some of the best songs written in the last forty to fifty years. Plus, in Mr. Earle, the album has a master interpreter who makes those songs live and breathe the way Mr. Clark intended them to and also to reveal the songwriting genius who wrote them. - Ted
Son Volt – “Union” Jay Farrar has been making records since 1990. He did four albums with Uncle Tupelo, four solo albums, several one-off projects and “Union” is the ninth Son Volt album. One could say that Mr. Farrar was one of the creators of alt-country which arose from the ashes of eighties cow-punk. But with all his different projects and bands, Mr. Farrar has maintained a high level of professionalism and consistency in both songwriting and production. Mr. Farrar has never made a bad album, nor should I say a boring one. “Union” is simply another gem of an album. It has some of his best songwriting in the last few years and makes a powerful statement in so many ways. The listener knows what to expect with a Jay Farrar album, and “Union” is no different than the rest. - Ted
