bode well until the voices kick in and all is suddenly and easily forgiven.
Charlie Hayden's daughters Petra, Tanya and Rachel make a beautiful noise.
Their sprightly debut is a little rough around the edges and all the better for it.
Many of the thirteen songs in the collection would not have sounded out of place
on the soundtrack to the Cohen siblings' movie 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'
It's tasty down-home country stuff with an Appalachian lilt and a big warm heart.
The three voices work wonderfully well together. At times I was reminded of The
Roches (three more redoubtable sisters, Maggie, Terre and Suzzy, in their
seventies heyday). It's crisp as chicory and fresh as a daisy and might well have
been recorded on the front porch their Grand Daddy's cabin in the woods.
The close harmony formula is a tad unrelenting but who cares really with music
as tunefully simple and uplifting as this. It's a breath of fresh air in a mad world.
It's all good but standout tracks would have to include the lovely 'Raining' with
it's pizzicato string raindrops and melancholy cello solo; 'Single Girl' which had
Mrs Wolf dosey doe-ing round the cave, fluttering her many petticoats and the
plaintive 'Lonesome Night' with its palpable aura of yearning and regret.
Simple stuff, beautifully done.
The fact that Ry Cooder is heavily involved was my reason for buying and it does not disappoint - the harmonies are stunning and the instrumental backing first rate, as you would expect from Ry.
The gripes? I felt that the balance was in favour of the instruments and slightly overwhelmed the voices in places. The CD art work is lifted from the vinyl, so it shows the track listing as Side A and Side B, which I think is sloppy. Also, I believe you can hear instruments which are not credited on the sleeve.
Finally, and most importantly, the composers of the songs are not credited and this is a major omission, especially as Ry is involved. As he is renowned for trawling the archives, I would have expected him to insist that credit should be given where credit is due.
Gripes aside, this is a terrific album and highly recommended.
