Product Description

God Willin’ & The Creek Don't Rise is acclaimed recording artist Ray LaMontagne's fourth studio record, and the follow-up to his heralded Gossip in the Grain. Entirely self produced (for the first time) God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise was recorded in two weeks at LaMontagne’s home in the woods of western Massachusetts. The newly restored historic home served as a homemade recording studio for Ray and his fellow musicians. The setting provided a backdrop for the creation of songs imbued with Ray’s signature poignancy.

With Ray’s vocals at the forefront of the songs and a loose, almost live sounding recording, the album stands as a testament to a band at the height of their powers. The newly coined 'Pariah Dogs', consists of Jay Bellarose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Patrick Warren (keyboard), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar). Individually, these musicians have contributed to the live work of musicians including Beck, Joe Henry, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams and Joe Cocker to name a few.

For the curious amongst you this album is streaming in full over at the wonderful National Public Radio until September 7th which will enable you to ignore the sniffy BBC review above and check out the real thing. After hearing it in full a good number of times the "cheque is in the post" to Amazon since this is easily LaMontagne's best since his timeless debut album "Trouble" with its echoes of Otis Redding. On this new album he has moved away from producer Ethan John and instead filled out his sound by enlisting the support of his red hot band of musicians the Pariah Dogs who support him in concert and comprise Jay Bellarose on drums, Jennifer Condos on bass, Patrick Warren on keys, Eric Heywood on guitar and Greg Leisz on steel guitar.

"Repo Man" is a exuberant and funky start to the album with LaMontagne's trademark gravely vocal returning like a very welcome old friend after an extended guitar introduction. It is however not typical of the songs throughout since this new albums predominant feel is largely based on alternative country in the vein of Gram Parsons, Ryan Adams, Evan Dando and particularly the source inspiration of "Harvest" era Neil Young which is spread like a rash over the albums second half (but let me add in in a very good way). "New York City's killing me" is classic heartbreak country territory as is the stellar title track which is one of the best songs on the album with its slow and lonesome vocal by LaMontagne and dulcet steel guitar backing from Greg Leisz. On its own this song is worth the price of admission and will soundtrack many smoky Saturday nights and rainy Sunday mornings accompanied by a punishing hangover.

Let me set the record straight!! Whilst the BBC review seems at pains to find fault on this album, and belittle the amazing song writing of one our generations' truely unique and gifted performers,, I cannot help but report all of the positives and assure you that all is well in the world, as Ray has yet again delivered a beautiful soul stirring piece of work. This is the best album from Ray since Trouble, and that is one of my top five albums of all time.

The mood is relaxed, the melancholy tinged with optimism, the voice is true and heartfelt, and the band are tight and loose in perfect measure. Everything points to a man at the peak of his powers recording and playing in an enviroment where he and his band are at ease! Ray has taken the production under his own wing, and I have to say that the lush sound of the band is beautifully captured, from the various pedal steel and slide guitar flourishes to the vibrant full sounding acoustic playing and the perfectly understated drumming.

All of the songs are great, displaying Ray's simple and universal lyrics which seem to immediatley strike a chord. Without going through the full album, the stand out tracks are Repo Man (funky), New York is Killing Me, God Willin' and The Creek Don't Rise and For The Summer.

MAGICAL STUFF! GO BUY IT AND CHILL OUT!

This is the fourth studio album from one of this generation's most original and talented songsmiths, Ray LaMontagne. It is a gorgeous album, with LaMontagne's soulful, craggy voice and evocative songwriting firmly centre stage. Rooted firmly in the folk/Americana tradition, there is a breadth of styles embraced, with songs that wouldn't sound out of place on albums by people as diverse as Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan or Simon and Garfunkel. LaMontagne has a colourful and expressive voice which he uses to good effect, and a great songwriting ability that allows him to craft some classic tunes and lyrics. The Pariah Dogs are a tight knit band who work well with LaMontagne, punctuating his singing and providing just the right backing for the mood. They seem to know just what is required at any moment, and an almost perfect record results. An absolute classic, five stars. Here's hoping there's much more to come!

Not only has Ray got the most amazing expressive voice but the way he uses it, is masterful.
Looking like Rasputin but with the voice of a battered ,well lived soul singer,this guy is special.
I have been playing and singing with this album constantly for the past month in my car on the way to work,and it is one of my favourite albums of the last year.
The lyrics and the atmosphere the vocal and instruments create are cinematic this is especially the case with the title track 'God Willin &Creek don't Rise" .It opens with such a beautiful open ended phrase and then continues to transport you into a timeless American landscape, in widescreen.
The Pariah Dogs augment Rays voice and add a haunting quality to the songs.
In my opinion there is not one weak song on this album.
If you like melodic ,well crafted songs, sung and played with subtlety and grace, just buy it.
