“What was thrown off the bridge really isn’t that important.”

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin’ cotton, and my brother was balin’ hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And mama hollered out the back door, “Y’all, remember to wipe your feet!”
And then she said, “I got some news this mornin’ from Choctaw Ridge
Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge.”

The Transcendental Transatlantic Sessions

The other day, I woke up humming Guy Clark's "Dublin Blues." That terrific performance is from Transatlantic Sessions, a long-running project uniting musicians from different countries and varying musical backgrounds. "For almost two decades, the sessions have been inviting American musicians – from Rufus Wainwright to Emmylou Harris to James Taylor – to the UK to collaborate with British musicians steeped in the folk tradition, and filming the results. Imagine Later with Jools Holland, if all the acts played on each other's songs. And with more accordion." Drawing from Wikipedia's list of performances, I offer for your listening pleasure... Transatlantic Sessions. [more inside]

Rosanne Cash releases her own view of her parent's lives

MusicFilter: Rosanne Cash has in many ways followed in her father, Johnny Cash's footsteps as an independent artist critical of the industry and radio marketing. Black Cadillac, her first album since the death of her mother, father, and step-mother in 2003 was released in the shadow of the better known biopic Walk the Line. Reviews that are not obsessed with the movie tie-in appear to be generally positive: Canoe (orig Winnepeg Sun), Rolling Stone, and Metacritic.
