Honky Tonk Blues is an expanded director's cut of an American Masters television special about Hank Williams, and every minute of it illuminates Williams's importance as a seminal artist and American archetype. Produced with an understated fascination for the country legend's gifts and demons that shortened his career, played havoc with his marriages, and led to a haunting death at 29, Honky Tonk Blues builds a seamless profile from rare footage and rich interviews with (among others) Rick Bragg, Big Bill Lister (Williams's longtime opening act), Hank Williams Jr., and members of Williams's backup band, the Drifting Cowboys. Williams's story, including his mentorship in the blues by Rufus "Tee Tot" Payne, childhood loneliness, and emergence as a whole-cloth singer-songwriter "who taught people it's okay to bear your soul in everyday language," is thoroughly compelling and resonates with many American originals (e.g., Kurt Cobain) who followed him. An outstanding documentary.

Label: Wire Boat Recordings | Release Year: 2017

Tom Williams, formerly helmsman of Tom Williams & The Boat, wrote his fifth album All Change in practice rooms across Kent, in breaks from teaching guitar and songwriting to primary and secondary school children. Lyrics came to him on the long daily drives from his home in Hastings. And the band? Music tech students, who helped him out on an artist-in-residence programme. Not that you can tell. All Change is an album made on a shoestring that sounds like a big budget classic: a reflection of Williams’ life-long love affair with 1970s American rock showcasing a new refinement to his songwriting, and a more commercial edge – “a celebration of the big chord change and the emotional sucker-punch line,” as he puts it. Think Asbury Park by way of Hastings – an unexpected trump card from someone who’d put rock and roll dreams to rest.

Mr. Bling Bling Classics vereint 13 handverlesene Black Music-Klassiker aus den goldenen 60s und 70s, die Alphonso Williams gründlich entstaubt hat und auf seine unnachahmliche Art modern interpretiert. Angefangen bei James Browns funky Hüften-Shaker „I Got You (I Feel Good)“, über Bill Withers` tieftraurigen Evergreen „Ain‘t No Sunshine“, Lionel Richies tiefenentspannte Wellness-Hymne „Easy“ oder das dramatisch-bombastische Make-Over von Jimmy Ruffins „What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted“, bis hin zu Al Greens berührendem „Let‘s Stay Together“.

I soggetti dei ventidue racconti contenuti in questa prima raccolta di Raymond Carver sono già gli stessi di sempre: uomini e donne sull'orlo, o già al di là, della perdizione, disoccupati, alcolisti, gente incapace di creare e mantenere rapporti sentimentali veri e solidi.
Ma, mescolato al disincanto con cui Carver sa raffigurare alienazioni e mancanze, spunta qui e là un tratto più emotivo, passionale, in qualche caso un dettaglio erotico o comico. In una parola, una qualità affettuosamente «umana»…

"Questa stanza è come la mia anima: sporca e disordinata". L'anima di Arthur Maxley è opaca, stretta nell'incertezza della giovane età e in una biografia familiare amara, dove la protezione dei genitori si è polverizzata quando era ancora un ragazzino. Arthur spende la giornata estiva che fa da cornice a questo romanzo breve a San Francisco: qui ci sono le feste di Max Evartz, dove si beve troppo, e l'amico Stafford Lord, sempre in ritardo e terribilmente lamentoso, un giovane viziato da sogni irrealizzabili…

The boastful title is no exaggeration; this is a welcome return for the classic Chicago blues sideman, who, primarily because of the misfortune of his music being exploited by other musicians, took a self-imposed retirement for nearly 30 years. It's especially rewarding since Williams – whose work you hear on early Howlin' Wolf, Otis Spann, Bo Diddley, Billy Boy Arnold (who guests here) sides – hadn't played a lick during that time, keeping his guitar stashed under his bed. He sounds like he never put the instrument away on this album, the first cohesive disc under his own name ever. Aided by comparative youngsters Tinsley Ellis, Ronnie Baker Brooks, and Rusty Zinn, along with a 21-year-old Sean Costello, Williams holds the spotlight like the pro his is. Though well into his sixties when this was recorded in 2001, he sounds remarkably vibrant, completely confident, and totally in his element.
