HASH(0x972b12b8) étoiles sur 5 "...Tin Cots...Little Paper Dolls...All Wrapped Up...In The Ribbons Of Your Heart..." 1 avril 2008
Par Mark Barry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
WHISKEYTOWN were:
(David) RYAN ADAMS - Acoustic, Electric Guitars, Piano, Banjo, Percussion, Lead Vocals and Principal song Writer
PHIL WANDSCHER - Electric Guitar, Organ, Percussion and Backing Vocals
CAITLIN CARY - Violin and Lead/Backing Vocals
JEFF RICE - Bass Guitar
STEVEN TERRY - Drums, Percussion and Backing Vocals

"Strangers Almanac" was the 2nd album for North Carolina country-rock band Whiskeytown and first appeared to warm acclaim in the summer of 1997. "Faithless Street" from two years earlier had been their excellent and promising debut and the messy release of "Pneumonia", their 3rd and last album recorded in 1997, but not released until April 2001 was a few years away yet. (They actually disbanded in 1999 and both Ryan Adams and Caitlin Cary went solo). Produced, engineered and mixed by JIM SCOTT, "Strangers Almanac" sounded like a band not just finding their feet, but a group 'arriving' - and big time. This 31 March 2008, 2CD DELUXE EDITION, is a major overhaul of that record (it's been available Stateside since January 2008) and for my money, it's already a strong contender for REISSUE OF THE YEAR.

A few things came together in 1997 - Ryan Adams' gifted songwriting had really begun to flourish into something special, the band was talented and playing beautifully, while producer Scott seemed to know exactly how to tap into the band's psyche and get their 'Whiskeytown' sound. Jim Scott would turn out to be a big part of the album's 'feel' and success. His truly beautiful production job on Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" from 1994 had won him an Engineering Award - and combining that same loose, gritty 'live' playing with a sympathetic sound engineer gave every track on the album a very real power and emotional punch. I mention the production a lot because the original CD I've had all these years has always sounded superb - but this TED JENSEN master is something else. Although the difference in the mastering is ever so subtle, the effect isn't. The SOUND IS NOW SIMPLY AWESOME. The album literally explodes out of the speakers in the most fully crystal clear manner ever. And listening to the acoustics of "16 Days" or the twin rough and ready electric guitars of the magnificent "Everything I Do" now, is like hearing them anew - it feels like there's an improvement in every instrument. You can suddenly hear them all. It seems that this time around, a gentle tweaking has brought out how well recorded they were in the first place. I don't think I've heard an album more perfectly improved on as this one is. And if that's not enough, there's 24 Previously Unreleased tracks thrown in too. Let's get to that...

Here's the breakdown:

DISC 1 (70:36 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 13 are the original album from 31 July 1997, released on CD as Outpost Recordings/Mood Food Records OPD 30005
Tracks 14 to 18 are 5 previously unreleased live performances from 10 September 1997, recorded/broadcast for "Brave New World" on KCRW-FM Radio in Santa Monica, California

DISC 2 (77:13 minutes)
Track 1: Indian Gown (Non-LP Track)
Track 2: 16 Days (Acoustic)
Track 3: Somebody Remembers The Rose (Acoustic)
Track 4: Avenues (Acoustic)
Track 5: Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight (Acoustic)
Track 6: Houses On The Hill (Early Version)
Track 7: My Heart Is Broken (Non-LP Track)
Track 8: I Still Miss Someone (Acoustic) [a Johnny Cash cover]
Track 9: Kiss & Make-Up (Non-LP Track)
Track 10: Barn's On Fire ((Non-LP Track)
Track 11: Dancing With The Women At The Bar (Early Version)
Track 12: Dreams (Non-LP Track) [a Fleetwood Mac cover]
Track 13: Breathe (Non-LP Track)
Track 14: Wither, I'm A Flower (issued on the promotional-only "In Your Wildest Dreams" EP in 1997 and then on the Soundtrack to "Hope Floats" in 1998)
Track 15: Luxury Liner (Non-LP Track) [a Gram Parsons cover]
Track 16: Theme For A Trucker (issued on the Soundtrack to Wim Wender's film "The End Of Violence" in 1997)
Track 17: Streets Of Sirens (Non-LP Track)
Track 18: Turn Around (Alternate Early Version)
Track 19: 10 Seconds (Non-LP Track)
Track 20: Ticket Time (Alternate Early Version)
Track 21: The Rain Won't Help You When It's Over (Early Version)
[Track 21 is an Alejandro Escovedo song, who also sang backing vocals on 3 tracks on the album, "Excuse Me While I Break My Heart Tonight", "Dancing With The Women At The Bar" and "Not Home Anymore"]

Disc 1:
Recorded for US Radio, the 5 previously unreleased tracks tagged onto the end of Disc 1 are a mixed bag. Both the performance and sound quality of "Houses On The Hill" and "Nurse With The Pills" seem dull, like the band is disinterested somehow. Not the best. But things improve considerably with "I Don't Care What You Think About Me", a new song that features great duet vocals with Caitlin Cary. The other two are good too, but for me, the real meat'n'potatoes starts on Disc 2...

Disc 2:
Excepting the two already released soundtrack songs, all tracks on Disc Two are Previously Unreleased and were recorded in two studio stints known as the "Barn On Fire" sessions (Tracks 1, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21) and the "Baseball Park" sessions (Tracks 2 and 5). The "Barn On Fire" sessions were recorded in Durham in North Carolina and acted as a run-through and rehearsal for the "Strangers Almanac" album, while the "Baseball Park" sessions were put down in Modern Recording studios in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
(There were further recordings at Chapel Hill and tracks from that session turn up on the 1998 extended version of "Faithless Street" put out on Outpost OPRD-30002 (it has 9 added tracks to the 1995 album's initial 12 and is a good starting point after this album).

Thankfully the superb quality of sound on the album continues on the double-album's worth of unreleased material on Disc 2. As you can see, there are three cover versions, one ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO song and the rest of the tracks are written solely by RYAN ADAMS. (Tracks 6, 7 and 18 are co-written with CAITLIN CARY, while 1, 3, 19 and 20 are co-written with PHIL WANDSCHER).

The acoustic nature of about half of the tracks on Disc 2 make it feel like an extended 'unplugged' session at times. And this is not a bad thing at all, because these aren't poorly recording home demos or half-finished rough versions - they're properly recording studio pieces, so the sound quality that came through on the album does so here too - and it makes a huge difference to the listen. If anything some of the tracks are all the more beautiful for being stripped down like this - they have an almost eerie "Nebraska" feel to them - real and of the moment. The production quality is fantastic. I'm reminded of Rick Rubin's stunning work on the five Johnny Cash American Recordings albums.

Track 2 is typical, just when I thought "16 Days" couldn't get any more touching, this initial 'acoustic take' of the song - in my opinion - almost aces the finished version - it's just breathtaking and fans will adore it (lyrics above). The brilliant "Breathe" and the FACES feel to "The Rain Won't Help When It's Over" are rocking highlights, as is "Barn's On Fire". Both "10 Seconds" and "Ticket Time" kick ass as well - great band efforts. The opener is a pretty little song about a pretty little girl in an "Indian Gown" with really tasty guitar work featured - a quality track most bands would kill a close relative to have. The band's cover version of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" isn't great, but the solo acoustic take of Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone" is lovely. The full on countrified "Kiss & Make-Up" and "Luxury Liner" are impressive too with Bill Ladd's complimentary pedal steel work on "Kiss & Make-Up" being particularly sweet. It's astonishing really that the quality across all the tracks is so damn good - I'll be listening to these a lot - I know it - and not treating them like they were 'interesting' - play them once and then leave them on the shelf.

To sum up - this is a brilliant album given a stunning sonic upgrade and a shed load of previously unreleased material you will want to hear again and again. There have been some truly superb DELUXE EDITION releases in Universal's catalogue, but this is really something special. Buy with confidence and I envy you the journey...

HASH(0x972b130c) étoiles sur 5 Favorite Album of All Time 14 mars 2008
Par Richie Bristow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When I bought this album in 1997, I had no idea how much influence Ryan Adams and his music would have on my daily life. This is the first album of his that I purchased and still my favorite. The new remastered stuff sounds great and the acoustic and different versions are fantastic.

If you dont own this album...buy it. If you do own the original...buy this one. You can never have too much R. Adams.

HASH(0x972b1744) étoiles sur 5 Finally!! worth the wait 4 mars 2008
Par Chauncey Gardner - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's been a long time coming, an expanded version of Strangers was very much in order, to remind everyone just how brilliant Ryan can be. The original album still stands up today, some 10 years later, and the unreleased material would make an incredible collection on its own. I know a bunch of this stuff has circulated on the bootleg circuit, I have copies of nearly all the unreleased tracks, but doesn't come close to this quality. The performance of NURSE WITH THE PILLS and the acoustic version of 16 DAYS are worth the price of admission alone. Incredible collection! Can't stop listening to it!

Par Thomas Thomsen - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ryan Adams. What a songwriter. Some say he's too prolific. He's not. He's just the lazy listener's nightmare. Of course some releases are stronger than others, but he really hasn't released anything so far that shouldn't be heard by the actual fans. Some say his debut album Heartbreaker is the best thing he's ever done. I don't agree. It's excellent, but my personal favorite is Cold Roses. And this Whiskeytown album - Strangers Almanac. Now, if you're new to Ryan Adams (or Alt-Country in general) this is the place to start. The songwriting, the lyrics, the arrangements, the muscianship, the lead and backing vocals...well, it simply does not get much better than this. This is an album / cd that I will listen to for the rest of my life, that's how much it resonates with me. If I could only pick one album by each of my favorite songwriters, Strangers Almanac would be in my all-time top 10 and remain there.

HASH(0x972b1bf4) étoiles sur 5 This is a must have... 7 octobre 2011

Even if you already own the original release, I'd highly suggest you pick this one up. The acoustic versions of the original songs are incredible and have a very different feel compared to the originals. In fact disc 2 (which is the new material and solo versions) is the better of the two IMO. The production on both discs is stellar and creates a different feel if you're accustomed to the original. Its all very good, you wont be disappointed. One of my favorite albums across the board.
