1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Tom Rushs Voices is the CD that fans of modern folk music and contemporary singer-songwriters have been waiting for 50 years. Well known for his golden ear for significant new songs by little-known writers the New England-based singer-guitarist one of the last giants of the early 60s folk boom was among the very first to record future standards by then-fledgling performers Joni Mitchell James Taylor Jackson Browne on 1968s The Circle Game. On that album he staked his own claim as a major writer with No Regrets an instant classic and subsequent chart hit in multiple genres by other artists and one of less than two dozen top-notch Rush originals that would tantalizingly surface on his eleven studio albums. Toms new Voices is the first album of his 55-year-plus career consisting of all Rush-written songs ten relaxed tenderhearted amused and sometimes thoughtful songs that perfectly reflect Toms wry persona. Harkening back to Rushs early 60s roots in Boston as a folk/blues interpreter are two traditional tracks Corina Corina and the opening Elder Green included because I didnt want to compromise my folksinger credentials Tom explains. His own compositions are shorn of elaborate metaphors usually evocative story-songs in everyday settings and his warm baritone tanned by experience humor and melancholy shines right through the lyrics warming them from within. As on Rushs previous studio album 2009s What I Know his first studio release in 35 tour-filled years his smiling understated delivery and exemplary skills as an acoustic guitarist are sympathetically framed by a crew of Nashville-based studio musicians helmed by musician-turned-Grammy-Award-winning producer Jim Rooney who has worked with Nancy Griffith John Prine and Iris DeMent among others. Sidemen include Dobro/pedal steel ace Al Perkins ex-Flying Burrito Brothers Stephen Stills Manassas Emmylou Harris bluegrass great Sam Bush New Grass Revival Bela Flecks Flecktones on mandolin fiddle country/bluegrass singers Kathy Mattea and Suzi Ragsdale backing vocals and Matt Nakoa keyboards backing vocals a solo artist who has become a frequent Rush tour accompanist.
