Hazel and Alice and Us
There’s a lot of soul in this week’s new releases, both literally and figuratively, so prepare to move and be moved. I think I’m most excited about the newly unearthed early recordings from Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. On Sing Me Back Home, you can hear raw versions of their songs and the standards they enjoyed singing, plus two musicians talking casually about their craft, their lives, the times, and more. It’s like sitting right there in the kitchen with them. Hope you’ll pull up a chair.
