Product Description

Product Description

Matraca Berg didn't set out to write five #1 hits in a single calendar year… to be nominated for Grammys in each of the past three decades… to have her seminal Sunday Morning To Saturday Night named one of the 10 Best Records of the Year in any genre by Time, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today and People, as well as myriad daily newspapers… or to end up in the prestigious Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame at such a young age. But here she is; one of the most consistently successful songwriters in America and she's also a great singer, though only rarely makes her own albums. Maybe it was the deadline. Maybe it was the notion that she was making "a record." Maybe her critically acclaimed 20111 album The Dreaming Fields (her first album in 14 years) that inspired the lithe songstress to keep reaching and writing. For whatever reason, Love's Truck Stop – a collection of songs that celebrate the spark of the human spirit, the resilience of women and the joy of being alive even when it's difficult – is easily the most engaging record of Matraca Berg's career.

Review

'...it s a real quality release, and that quality is a thoughtfulness of expression that complements the predominant state of resilient hope and ups the musical and emotional ante. This album sure feels like a further stage in Matraca s recent creative renaissance.' --David Kidman, Folk & Roots

Not one of her best albums, and I have got every one of them, but Matraca's voice is always warm and a pleasure to listen to. Even such a great songwriter cannot produce a winner every time. She is pretty close though. And pretty as well !!

This album is just fabulous. If you like real Country music, not just the Nashville brand that passes itself off as such, and excellent songwriting, then this is for you. It even features Emmylou Harris, Matraca's pals Suzy Bogguss and Gretchen Peters, plus her husband on backing vocals. What more can one want?

Matraca Berg is known as one of Nashville's greatest songwriters, but if you can, listen to her sing 'Lying To The Moon' and you will realise what a truly great singer she is. This album is full of songs you will hear time and time again by other artists, but thanks Matraca for letting us hear the songwriter's version. She does a fantastic job of the Patty Loveless hit 'My Heart Will Never Break This Way Again' and some of the harmony vocals by the likes of Emmylou are an absolute joy to listen to. A MUST for any true Country fan.

I discovered Matraca after knowing she wrote (and sang, see youtube) "Back when we were beautiful". For me, a country music fan from Emmylou to Caitlin Rose, Matraca has it all. Why she is not famous as a performer beats me. I will buy anything she records. This is a great album of which "My heart will never break this way again" is devastating.

I have to admit I stumbled upon Matraca Berg as a singer by an indirect route, hearing her Appalachian Rain on the compilation album "Singin' with Emmylou, Volume 2". Loved the haunting lyrics of that song, loved Matraca's voice, and had to hear more of her work. Got her older albums and quite liked them, but it was her two most recent albums that have made her one of my favourite artists. I particularly like the intelligent, poetic imagery of the lyrics in "Love's Truck Stop" that seem to speak out of real life experiences of hurt and loss. The instrumental arrangements are subdued and carry the melody without overwhelming Matraca's soulful voice. Having listened to her recordings I had hoped to see her at a session at the Bluebird when we were in Nashville in October but, alas, it was sold out. Someday, hopefully. In the meantime I look forward to hearing what her next project will be!

Pleasant enough but neither distinctive nor memorable. You need to be a real fan to seriously consider buying this album.
