CD: LARRY GILLIS - Swamp Folk

Swamp Folk - Blue Georgia Moon - Swamp Leach - That Beautiful Picture - The Storybook - Sad Swamp Man - Long Journey Home - Look At My Heart - Three Sheets In The Wind - Rovin' On A Winter Night - Fiddler's Blues - Little Rose - I Wanna Die Easy - Two More Years - Crazy Russian
 
I just finished reviewing Bobby Bare, and it couldn't be better than to have Dr. Swampgrass, Larry Gillis, come up next with his amazing style of bluegrass and traditional country sound.  Larry Gillis does two things with his music.  He keeps the traditional bluegrass sound in all that he does, but at the same time he adds a very 'original' Larry Gillis sound to the mix, not only hard to do, but incredibly authentic in the evolution of old-time acoustic music in it's many disguises.  Larry has no less than five original songs on this CD, all of them right in the scope of anyone who likes authenticity at the same time they like newness.  That is a combination hard to beat, especially since Nashville has abandoned the 'crown' of authentic and traditional country music.  Where to find that?  Easy, it's down in Georgia where Larry Gillis and the Swamp Folk abound.  Larry is the driving force behind his own music, and he's also the driving force on his 5-string banjo sound.  He carries it full circle, for instance the very folk-like sound of Stanley, to the hard driving sound of Scruggs, add Gillis himself to it and you have an astonishing 'new' banjo sound, bluegrass sound, original music sound, BUT it's still within the definition of the genre.  Add to the mix Alex Leach on guitar, beautifully picking note for note what Larry does (especially on Swamp Leach), and mandolin, and then add the fiddle of Ella Naiman Warde, a young woman who plays the fiddle rough and ready like a swamp man.  Rafe Waters on bass with some additional help on that instrument from Kristi Gillis who is also Larry's wife.   Larry has mellowed his voice a bit since my last listen, and it sounds just right, perfect for this music, perfect for the story songs he does, perfect for the lovely gospel songs he includes.  Add the typical tight harmony of nearly all good bluegrass bands, and you can begin to realize how very good Dr. Swampgrass is.  He's authentic and original, I doubt you could take that out of him, but more importantly, he has a great respect for good bluegrass music, authentic and traditional, as well as original and fun.  Here's a nice surprise, on "Sad Swamp Man" one of the best songs on this CD, Larry plays what I believe to be an open-back banjo, but it sounds just like a powerful lap dulcimer.  What an absolutely beautiful original sound coming from this very masculine swamp man from Georgia.  Gentle, sweet, sorrowful, story telling, absolutely stunning.  His vocalization on this song gives me shivers, it's remarkable. The entire CD is chock full of great songs from the past, and those five brand new ones from Larry, creating a listening experience we don't get much anymore, and need more of.  This is the real deal, the soul searching and response to the music so transparently missing in country music today from Nashville.  Larry Gillis is not only carrying the heavy load of 'tradition' he also has on his other shoulder 'originality' and boy does he blend them well.  This CD goes immediately to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  Larry won "Traditional Bluegrass CD of the Year" in 2014.  The Commission sure has it's work cut out for them.  Congratulations to my favorite Southern bluegrasser.

CD: BOBBY BARE - Darker Than Light

Without a doubt this is the best Christmas present I've ever received from my lovely wife Sheila, and now I get to review this incredible piece of musical work for you.  As a Smithsonian recording artist, and preservationist of old-time rural music all of my life, this particular CD is one of the freshest breaths of air I've had in a very very long time from the field of 'country' music. One of my many heroes in this genre of music, has been Bobby Bare for the longest period of time.  Originally from Ohio, he was playing guitar by age 11, and the very first artist to begin recording Kris Kristofferson songs.  That already is a combination hard to beat.  Bobby Bare got his first break in country music when he signed with RCA and worked with Chet Atkins, releasing "Shame On Me" in 1962 followed by "Detroit City" in 1963, and then my favorite "500 Miles Away From Home" in 1964.  By 1965 the Grammys were rolling in, and now it's happening again with this CD.  "Darker Than Light" are songs Bobby Bare has had in his head for a very long time, 50 years or more, and some are still there, waiting.  He's had an enviable career doing what he does best, but he's a modest man, you know, the 'quiet' outlaw.  I believe he says it best in 500 Miles...in his own poetic words "I know this is the same road I took the day I left home, but it sure looks different now.  Well, I guess I look different too, cause' time changes everything."  But, Bobby Bare doesn't stop there.  On this very album he answers that same statement in his song "I Was A Young Man Once"... "You're just an old man once.  An old man dreams of what he wants.  He wants the world to know, that not too long ago, he was a young man once."  Bobby Bare is 'home' now, somewhat older and a lot more wiser, and to many of us, he's still the monument we look to for authenticity, reality, and goodness in 'real' country music.  He has a sort of 'sad' look about him sometimes, maybe a regret or two, but maybe seeing, hearing, knowing, and realizing the loss of 'real' country music, and why this album is so important and necessary, might be causing that.  It was released on Plowboy Records, created in 2012 by Shanon Pollard, grandson of Eddy Arnold, with one of the goals of this particular CD to re-introduce Bobby Bare to a national Americana fan base, and to remind the Country Music Association that Bobby Bare is worthy of induction into their Hall of Fame.  This album "Darker Than Light" led to that actual induction in 2013.  Darkness, you might know, or the color black, is merely the absence of light.  Bobby Bare adds the 'light' to this album, and indeed it shines darker than light, full circle.  This album is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing contributions to 'country' music in its history, and especially important because this is the spirit, the story-telling ability, the 'guts' of country music, the music we don't hear anymore. The last song "The Devil and Billy Markham" uses some 'naughty' words.  Isn't it amazing, we live in 2014, and we still have 'naughty' words. I believe Bobby went into the studio and laid his tracks, and then let this amazing assortment of musicians come in and finish it off.  Throughout the taping, he sounds like a young Bobby Bare, but sometimes he slips into the reality of being an older singer.  In total, this one album will obviously go to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their album of the year consideration, but more importantly we desperately hope Bobby Bare will consider letting rural America put him into their 'America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame' now.  Don't you think it's neat that he opens this CD with a Woody Guthrie song, and then includes his own song "Woody" inside the fabric of the CD as a dedication to another of my heroes, and obviously one of his.  Five stars all the way around for this one.  As many know, I forward CD's to the RRMC for award consideration and those that don't go there go to seniors in a homes not able to get good country music anymore.  This one, however, stays in my own private collection, proudly displayed in the Pioneer Music Museum located in the heart of the corn country, Iowa.
