Robbie Fulks Review on "Fresh Air"

NPR's syndicated "Fresh Air" reviewed Robbie Fulks' new album Gone Away Backward.

SPOILER ALERT!  THEY LOVED IT!

It's archived HERE, so you can let the mellifluous tones of Ken Tucker's voice tell you why you need to hear this fine batch of songs. 

“With Gone Away Backward, Fulks has made an album that feints in the direction of nostalgia while grappling very much with the here and now. Even for a singer-songwriter known for his clever twists and turns, it's a considerable achievement.”

Rosie Flores on NPR's Weekend Edition discussing Janis Martin

ROSIE FLORES will discuss the late rockabilly legend JANIS MARTIN and Janis' just-released final album The Blanco Sessions on NPR's Weekend Edition with host Rachel Martin this Sunday, September 30 at 9:45 a.m eastern time

IT'S ARCHIVED HERE

Janis Martin was one of the few female recording artists working in the male-dominated rockabilly field in the 1950s. Nicknamed "the female Elvis" for her dance moves, the Sutherland, Va. native, born in 1940, recorded a number of singles for RCA Victor and Pallette from 1956 to 1961. Her first single, "Will You Willyum" b/w "Drugstore Rock n Roll" (covered by Rosie on her upcoming album Working Girl's Guitar), sold more than 750,000 copies, landing her national TV appearances. In 1960, her husband demanded she leave music. But she returned in the '70s, and in 1995 made a guest appearance on Rosie Flores' Rockabilly Filly album.

It's here that the saga of Janis Martin's farewell album, The Blanco Sessions, began. The Blanco Sessions, produced by Flores and Bobby Trimble, was released on Cow Island Music on September 18, 2012.
