Product Description

10 Song Demo by Rosanne Cash

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

Rosanne Cash's 10 Song Demo has a lot in common with Emmylou Harris's Wrecking Ball. Both projects find Nashville divas pushing the left side of the progressive-country envelope with austere, intensely personal readings of superb songs about troubled relationships and spiritual crises. In each case, the singer has an equal partner in a producer who creates a brooding atmosphere with synth washes and sustaining guitar--in Harris's case it was U2's Daniel Lanois; in Cash's case, it's her husband, John Leventhal. The title is misleading on two counts: it actually contains 11 songs, and they really aren't demos. Although nearly every number begins with just Cash's voice and acoustic guitar or piano, they are gradually filled in with tasteful electric guitar, bass, and keys, which are too exquisite to be called unfinished demos. --Geoffrey Himes

Format: Audio CD
When I originally purchased '10 Song Demo' I was disappointed. I knew the songwriting was there, but the execution seemed a bit lacking. I knew the songs weren't really demos, but my hesitation came from thinking "these would be REALLY good if they were fleshed out".
What I came to realize is just how brilliant the album actually is. Obviously the arrangement are sparse, but that turns out to be a blessing. What it does is REALLY showcase the songwriting for which Cash does not get enough credit. But her vocals really carry the songs - especially songs like "Bells & Roses", "I Want to Know" and "Child of Steel". Not all might be her strongest vocals - but they convey the emotion of the song.
FYI 1 - "Western Wall" also appears on Cash's 2003 release 'Rules of Travel' and is almost identical the version on '10 Song Demo'.
FYI 2 - Cash's short stories, "Bodies of Water", is a great companion piece to this cd.

Five stars may be excessive if you judge this CD alongside the greatest classics, but when compared to similar CDs within the singer-songwriter folk-rock genre, this beautifully simple and powerful collection really shines. I find myself coming back to this CD more often than to many better-known classics because it has a freshness and originality that sustain interest. The writing, while occasionally a bit awkward, is consistently interesting, honest and moving. The themes of introspection, nostalgia, regret, and defiance are presented in a searingly personal manner. The song "If I Were a Man" is a rich celeration of the wonders women bring to relationships and the world; "Child of Steel" plucks the heartstrings with an achingly wistful delicacy; and "Take my Body" is a strong lament about the objectification of women. I especially love the pared-down guitar arrangements; the simplicity really works with Ms. Cash's strong vocals and makes me wish some of my other favorite vocalists would occasionally just get back to basic guitar accompaniments. I've seen Ms. Cash perform live and, while she has other hits that may be more popular, this collection reveals her unique brilliance.

It's bare, emotional, raw, and acoustic. Rosanne's voice has never sounded better. The producer of the demos doesn't overproduce her, which is great. The songs are the focus and each of them is a masterpiece. I've told friends that this is the country version of Tori Amos' Little Earthquakes CD: Every song is a rollercoaster of self-discovery. Be sure to pick up the companion book, Bodies of Water by Rosanne. She proves she's as good a writer as a singer. One of my favorite books. And this is one of my favorite CDs. If the brilliant Wrecking Ball is Emmylou Harris' signature CD, then this is Rosanne's.

This is an extraordinary disk. All eleven songs have the kind of lyrical power and melodic originality that the echo in your mind long after they are over. It would be a disservice to the others to single out any as standouts, but suffice to say that there aren't many singer songwriters who could pen a song as brutally candid as "Take This Body." The decision to work with the original album demo was inspired. Although some of the tracks are enhanced with extra guitars and rhythm instruments, in all the lean, disciplined arrangements never get in the way of Rosanne's songwriting and singing. With songs this good, the less you notice the arrangements the better. It feels as though Rosanne is sitting in your living room pouring her heart out to the guitar top. Magnificent.

IF YOU ARE A COLLECTOR AND WANT A REAL COPY OF THIS CD, THIS IS NOT IT.
This is a cheaply reproduced "home like" recording of this product and
is not 'manufactured' by the RECORD LABEL.

IF YOU SEE: "CD-R Note: This product is manufactured on demand when
ordered from Amazon.com. [Learn more] You'll know that this is a CD-R
Recording of the Album made by Amazon.com and they expect you to pay
a hefty price for it. So, LOOK CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BUY ANY CD OFF OF
AMAZON.COM OR ANY OTHER ONLINE DEALER. They do have to put somekind
of notice like the one above or something to that effect to sell them
legally and if they play okay..you cannot return them after you find
out you've been ripped off and you get no booklet, or anything else
and it comes in a clear single CD cover you can buy 50 of for a few
bucks at WalMart with a jet paper printed slip in the front with
the LP cover on one side and a list of the songs on the other and that
is about it!

**My Rating Of This Product Only Represents Amazon.com's production of
the product and in NO WAY represents my opinion of the artists efforts.**

This Item is OVERPRICED and is little more than Amazon.com making you
a copy like your friends used to do for a lot less. How an artist can
agree to this 'treatment' of their creative property is beyond me.

I'm sick of downloads and I'm sick of being ripped off. I don't want
either, I want the 'real thing' or I'll take ALL my business elsewhere!

SHAME ON YOU AMAZON FOR TRYING TO RIP US OFF EVEN MORE! If you don't
have the real deal, take the product off the market!!!! THESE ARE NOT
GOOD PRODUCTS....DO NOT BUY THEM!!!

I do, however, really ENJOY this CD but, then I have the real deal and
it is worth 5 stars. I hope you find YOUR real copy so you can enjoy it
as well.
