DAVE ALVIN AND THE GUILTY WOMEN

DAVE ALVIN AND THE GUILTY WOMEN

2009-05-26

Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women Dave Alvin has been in the forefront of Americana music for the last three decades, heading up bands like the Blasters, the Knitters and the Guilty Men, Dave’s journey down the American highway has joined him with seven of the finest female musicians in Americana music today. The result is a superb collection of songs that range from the reworked Blasters classic “Marie Marie” done in a bluegrass format to the western swing sounds of “Boss of the Blues”, Dave’s tribute to the late great Big Joe Turner. Dave also gives leading vocal recognition to Christy McWilson and the guilty women on the tracks “Weight Of The World” and “Potters Field”. Every track on this disc is a little gem including the coolest version of “Que Sera Sera” you will ever hear. As that song ends asking what the future will bring, I only see good things for Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women. Que Sera Sera. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
