Look Again To The Wind - Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited

Jump to “More items of this artist”

(Folk/Country/Roots) 2014 Sony Masterworks - allein das 9:11-minütige Eröffnungslied 'As Long As The Grass Shall Grow', einzigartig schön, pur, karg und "very haunting" interpretiert von Gillian Welch & David Rawlings im Duett (ja: eines ihrer gar nicht so häufigen Gesangsduette!) ist den Kaufpreis dieses ambitionierten Konzeptalbums wert! Aber, meine Güte, was kommt dann alles noch "hinterher"...: Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Nancy Blake mit 'The Talking Leaves' in einer solch faszinierenden Talking Folk-Fassung und so überwältigend gut, wie ich die langjährige Partnerin des großen Norman Blake noch nie gehört habe! Dann Kris Kristofferson, Norman Blake höchstpersönlich, die Milk Carton Kids, Rhiannon Giddens (von Carolina Chocolate Drops) und Bill Miller (bekannter Native American Musician). Ach ja, soll ich noch erwähnen, dass Welch & Rawlings zwei weitere Tracks singen (u.a. nochmal 'As Long As...' mit Begleitung) und dazu auf gleich vier anderen mitmachen?! Dass Emmylou Harris mehrfach als Harmoniesängerin auftritt, dass die kongeniale Backing Band aus Greg Leisz (Weissenborn), Patrick Warren (Piano), Dennis Crouch/David Piltch (Bass) und Jay Bellerose (Drums) besteht?! Dass kein Geringerer als Joe Henry produziert hat und für dieses Projekt verantwortlich zeichnet?! Mehr Americana geht wohl wirklich nicht mehr!! 50 Jahre nach dem Release von 'Bitter Tears' in 64, einer der spektakulärsten, beispiellosesten, seinerzeit umstrittensten, später von den Insidern der Civil Rights-Bewegung gefeierten Platten im reichhaltigen Katalog des Johnny Cash, haben sich die genannten Protagonisten aufgemacht, um dieses Großwerk mit dem Klassiker 'The Ballad Of Ira Hayes' im Zentrum gebührend zu würdigen. Wohl nie zuvor und selten genug danach wurde das Schicksal der Indianer von einem potenten Künstler so thematisiert und angeprangert wie auf 'Bitter Tears' von Johnny Cash mit den kapitalen Songs von Peter La Farge. Und dieses Tributewerk hat alles Zeug (inhaltlich und musikalisch) dazu, im 2014 schon sehr vollen Kandidatentopf am Ende das Americana-Album des Jahres zu werden. Nichts weniger!! Ausführliches Booklet mit vielen Liner Notes, allen Texten und Besetzungen. So muss es sein!


Of all the dozens of albums released by Johnny Cash during his nearly half-century career, 1964's "Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian" is among the closest to the artist s heart. A concept album focusing on the mistreatment and marginalization of the Native American people throughout the history of the United States, its eight songs among them "The Ballad of Ira Hayes," a #3 hit single for Cash on the Billboard country chart spoke in frank and poetic language of the hardships and intolerance they endured. Now, 50 years after it was recorded, a collective of top Americana artists has come together to re-imagine and update these songs that meant so much to Cash, who died in 2003. For "Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited," creative leader and album producer Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville) realized that the "Bitter Tears" album held a special place in Cash's canon, and that in many ways the issues it raised still resonate today. This had to be apparent in the new versions he was recording for "Look Again to the Wind." The album features American music giants Kris Kirstofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and Norman Blake (the guitarist and only surviving member from the original recording sessions) as well as up-and-comers The Milk Carton Kids and Rhiannon Giddens, interpreting the music of "Bitter Tears" for a new generation. As the original album was for Cash, this new collection is a labor of love with a strong sense of purpose fueling its creation. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and at Johnny Cash's personal recording studio, Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN. As a companion piece to the album, the documentary, "We're Still Here: Johnny Cash s Bitter Tears Revisited," traces the history of "Bitter Tears" and the making of "Look Again to the Wind." The film is directed by Antonio D Ambrosio, author of "A Heartbeat and a Guitar," a book about the making of "Bitter Tears."
