After the dark and chilling themes of 2006's BLACK CADILLAC, which saw Rosanne Cash dealing with the deaths of her mother, Vivian Liberto, her father, Johnny Cash, and her stepmother, June Carter Cash -- all of whom passed within a two-year span -- one might assume that her next project would move into an even deeper level of bleakness, but with THE LIST, it's immediately clear that she has instead found a more measured place to stand. It's a lovely and redemptive outing that looks back to go forward. When Cash turned 18, her father, alarmed that his daughter only knew the songs that were getting played on the radio, gave her a list of what he considered 100 essential American songs; Cash kept that list, and now she's drawn on it for this wonderfully nuanced outing that brims with a kind of redemptive timelessness. THE LIST is a renewal and a testament to life, and it belongs to her father as much as it belongs to her, a beautiful restatement of her father's passions, only now, they've become his daughter's treasures, as well. It's an affirming story, but that's all it would be if Cash didn't sing her heart out here. The opener, a version of Jimmie Rodgers' "Miss the Mississippi and You," is full of comfortable grace and sentiment, and Cash keeps that fine emotional tone throughout this set. Songs like the folk classic "500 Miles" feel at once both lovingly rendered and reborn for a new century in Cash's hands. There's also her fine rendering of Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country," a nice turn at Harlan Howard's "Heartaches by the Number" (which features Elvis Costello), a calm but still spooky duet with Jeff Tweedy on the faux-murder ballad "Long Black Veil," and a duet with Bruce Springsteen on Hal David and Paul Hampton's "Sea of Heartbreak." Cash sings with a calm, measured authority, and all these the songs fit together with the same sort of refreshing resignation and care.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Electronic shadings give new color and depth to the Hank Williams hit 'Take These Chains From My Heart'..."
Spin (p.74) - "Roseanne Cash delivers the most enjoyable history lesson....Cash is always in charge and always mesmerizing."
Entertainment Weekly (p.57) - "THE LIST is a testament to both Cash Jr.'s vocal talents and Cash Sr.'s catholic taste." -- Grade: B
Dirty Linen (p.45) - "'500 Miles,' made famous by Peter, Paul and Mary, is an unexpected little gem that showcases Cash's vocal talents, clear and direct as the song she sings."
Billboard (p.84) - "[T]he spotlight is rightfully on Cash, who sails gently through 'Miss the Mississippi and You' while deliciously strolling through Hank Snow's 'I'm Movin' On.'"
Record Collector (magazine) (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The playing is understated throughout, Roseanne's guitarist and producer hubby John Leventhal staying true to the stripped-down folk motifs of the originals..."
Artist Bio
Rosanne CashRosanne Cash (born May 24, 1955) is an singer-songwriter and author. She is the eldest daughter of the late country music singer Johnny Cash and his first wife, Vivian Liberto Cash Distin. Although she is often classified as a country artist, her music draws on many genres, including folk, pop, rock and blues. In the 1980s, she had a string of chart-topping singles, which crossed musical genres and landed on both C&W and Top 100 charts, the most commercially successful being her 1981 breakthrough hit "Seven Year Ache", which topped the U.S. country singles charts and reached the Top 30 on the U.S. pop singles charts. In 1990, Cash released Interiors, a spare, introspective album which signaled a break from her pop country past. The following year Cash ended her marriage and moved from Nashville to New York City, where she continues to write, record and perform. Since 1991 she has released four albums, written two books and edited a collection of short stories. Her fiction and essays have been published in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Oxford-American, New York Magazine, and various other periodicals and collections. She won a Grammy in 1985 for "I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me," and has received eight other Grammy nominations. She has had 11 1 country hit singles, 21 Top 40 country singles and two gold records.
