Artist: Nelson, Tracy
Description:
Personnel: Tracy Nelson (vocals); Jimmy Pugh (piano, Hammond b-3 organ); John Gardner (drums); Reba Russell, John Cowan, Vickie Carrico, Terry Tucker (background vocals). Audio Mixer: Mike Dysinger. Liner Note Author: Tracy Nelson. Recording information: Burns Station, TN; Grandpa's Farm, Burns, TN; Sound Emporium, Nashville, TN. Photographer: Mike Dysinger. The back story to this album doesn't make it any better -- it's already a terrific roots release from one of this generation's most powerful singers -- but it helps the listener appreciate that it even exists. The tapes were rescued from a 2010 fire that destroyed Nelson's 100-year-old farm house, leaving them and the studio as the only surviving parts of the home. The title was decided on before the tragedy but it takes on additional gravitas knowing that this is clearly a woman who understands and has lived her fair share of the blues. Although Nelson's previous effort was a country set, she returns to the blues in a big way on this dozen-track collection of covers from some of the genre's greatest names. Relatively obscure songs from Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Lightnin' Hopkins, Willie Dixon, and Percy Mayfield, among others are bolstered not only by Nelson's always dynamic vocals, but by a sharp, sympathetic band that includes veterans such as keyboardist Jimmy Pugh, guitarist Mike Henderson, and especially bassist Byron House, whose work on standup provides a rubbery bottom that synchs perfectly with the rest of the musicians and Nelson's approach to the material. The playing crackles, inspiring the singer to some of her finest, toughest vocals on selections like Howlin' Wolf's "Howlin' for My Baby," a raucous duet with Angela Strehli. Marcia Ball also swings by to add her piano and vocals to some barroom boogie on a blistering version of Reed's "Shoot My Baby" that also features a gutsy slide guitar solo from Henderson. Nelson's notorious husky vibrato is in fine form on a gospel/soul reading of Joe Tex'...
