8/10 Ant 28 November 2006
Greetings from thee Ant. I recall way back in 1994 or maybe 1993 hearing 'Ohio River Boat Song' by The Palace Brothers. A friend played it to me (Hi Jim) and although it was a million miles away from the kind of Albini produced racket I was listening to at the time, I really loved it. I'd never heard Country music sound so honest, so raw, so soulful. It really moved me. It had genius written all over it. I'm sure that Will Oldham's music has touched and inspired thousands which is why the 'Tribute To Will Oldham' CD on Tract I have here is so special. Artists like Oldham often only receive acknowledgment when they are no longer with us. So this is I guess, kind of a way of saying thanks, you know, while he's still on the planet. Eighteen artists sensitively tackle a selection from the hefty catalogue using the same production values and manage to inject similar emotion into the tracks. I headed straight for my favourite Palace song 'You Will Miss Me When I Burn' which is done justice by Rivulets. This song is just so deeply personal, Its profound. There's absolutely no point in comparing these versions to the originals as this aint a covers album. Its a tribute. Features Calexico, Scout Niblett, Unbunny, Pink Nasty, The Impossible Shapes and loads more.
