#1: Album Review - Ramblin' Jack Elliott - I Stand Alone

Posted on 2006-07-12 01:23:42 by John Metzger

Album Review - Ramblin' Jack Elliott - I Stand Alone

Ramblin' Jack Elliott is no stranger to taking long breaks between
recordings, and despite a career that spans nearly half of a century, he
has scant few albums in his name. In fact, seven years have passed since
his last outing The Long Ride was issued, and it's been more than a
decade since the Grammy-winning South Coast truly reminded the world of
his importance. Although his latest effort I Stand Alone boasts an array
of special guests -- Lucinda Williams, Los Lobos' David Hidalgo, Red Hot
Chili Peppers' Flea, X's D.J. Bonebrake, Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker,
and Wilco's Nels Cline all lend Elliott a hand -- its title is wholly
appropriate. The outing is all about Ramblin' Jack, and with one fell
swoop, he ruminates upon mortality in a way that puts the current
folk-and-bluegrass revival into its proper perspective.

&quot;At the age of 75, Elliott's weathered vocals sound more expressive
than ever as he playfully cackles, croaks, and croons his way through
the material&quot;

Well, you could put it that way. I listened to the CD,
then put on a recoding he made in the mid-1960s to see whether
he always sounded that bad. He didn't. The years have not
been kind to his voice. One-and-a-half stars.

I don't think he sounds bad at all. Older? Yes. Bad? No.
