Music today has been Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ latest album, Raise The Roof (2021). Probably not for those in search of edge but a quality ensues in songs, moods, singing, playing, and production c/- T Bone Burnett. The songwriters include Joey Burns and John Covertino from Calexico, as well as legends Anne Briggs and Bert Jansch and then the legends from earlier days, Allen Toussaint, The Everly’s and Merle Haggard and then some great songwriters you may not know, I didn’t. Makes me sad that The Civil Wars broke up who were kinda like this – with more edge.
