Product Description

Amazon.com

The late Chris Whitley plainly found a kindred spirit in Australia's Jeff Lang, with whom he collaborated on his last recording before his 2005 death. Both are breathy vocalists and bluesy adventurers who favor a buzzsaw immediacy to more layered, polished recordings. With Whitley playing mainly National steel guitar and Lang alternating among lap steel and other guitars, backed by a crack rhythm section, the music has a haunted, sin-drenched quality that ranks with Whitley's most intense. Highlights range from the tribal-throb rendition of Prince's "Forever in My Life" and the Asian delicacy of Lang's acoustic "Ravenswood" to the Dylanesque phrasing of Whitley's "Velocity Girl" and a pair of Dylan covers ("When I Paint My Masterpiece" and "Changing of the Guard"). The opening "Stagger Lee" and the closing "Hellhound on My Trail" (an unlisted bonus cut) show where this music is rooted, while Whitley's "Rocket House" and the supercharged "Underground" show where it can soar. --Don McLeese

There really isnt a weak cut on the album.
The Winged Eel
Any fan of not only blues but just good pure and honest popular music would do well to add this album to their collection.
Paul Stafford
What a spot on heads-up move by Jeff to collaborate with Chris and record this music.

This last album, a collaboration with Australian Jeff Lang, sees the two of them revisiting some of Chris' earlier compositions, albeit with radically new arrangements, plus some covers, collaborations and Lang originals, as well as a couple of Dylan songs. The playing is exemplary, intimate without being claustrophobic. Obviously kindred spirits, the two share singing and guitar duties to outstanding effect. This really is an album of astounding honesty, grit and feel. And the rhythm section are no slouches, either.
Chris' passing in 2005 at the age 45 robbed music of a major talent. Although frequently categorized as a bluesman, this really doesn't do justice to Chris' vision. Many of his albums could only be called blues in the loosest sense of the genre; capturing the soul of the blues without succumbing to the cliches. Treat yourself to something bitter sweet, but quite special!
P.S. If you don't already have Chris' Living With The Law and Dirt Floor albums I strongly recommend you invest a little of your hard-earned cash and buy them. Hotel Vast Horizon and Terra Incognita are two other personal faves.

I really thought this would be a toss-off effort from the late Chris Whitley, and Australian Jeff Lang, but happily this turned out not to be true.

The two seem to inspire each other, and the result is a fine CD. Whitley is in fine voice despite his impending health problems, and the guitar playing is first rate from them both.

The high points IMO are a very spooky reading of Stagger Lee, the reworked Rocket House and Velocity Girl, and Langs Ravenswood. There are two really great Dylan covers as well. There really isnt a weak cut on the album.

Once again Whitley proved himself to be a true bluesman in every sense of the word, and Lang does the same.

Highly recommended.

When I first heard that this album would be released, I was overjoyed. I first heard Chris Whitley at a South-By-Southwest festival in the 90's. He was playing his beat-up old National with a custom slide while accompanying himself on a stomp box. His unique, bluesy but adventurous phrasing and gut-wrenching voice made me an instant fan, and Dirt Floor remains one of my all-time favorite recordings.

Jeff Lang is not as well-known in the US as he should be, but if you listen to Chris Whitley, you have probably heard some of Lang's disciples. He is the acoustic blues guitar deity of Australia, worshipped by guys like John Butler and Xavier Rudd. Lang is one of the most interesting and virtuosic guitarists around. If you doubt that praise, just know that Bob Brozman decided to record an album with him (track it down, if you can). He is a master of bottleneck and lap-style slide, as well as fingerpicking with lightning-fast fretwork. His style is also completely unique, and ever-evolving, combining his blues roots with Richard Thompson's British folk, and even occasionally Indian sounds, although less overtly than, say, Harry Manx. Lang is just amazing.

So, when I heard that this album would be released, I couldn't believe our collective luck. These two musicians complement each other perfectly. Chris Whitley's voice was always deeply moving. By this point, he was sufficiently ill that it didn't quite have the same power that it did in the 90s, but it still had the evocative spirit. Whitley's guitar style was always unique without being flashy, and Lang is sufficiently adaptable that he can bring his virtuosity to the table in a way that complements rather than detracts from the Chris Whitley vibe.

This album showcases two artists who have clearly inspired each other to make something memorable. Having previously heard both Jeff Lang and Chris Whitley as individual artists and having come to understand a little of their own musical journeys it is easy to see why they hit it off so well on this collaboration. Like so many great artists, Chris Whitley has left us way to soon but we are fortunate to have this recording as a celebration of his undoubted talent. Any fan of not only blues but just good pure and honest popular music would do well to add this album to their collection.

I've been a huge fan of Chris Whitley's since "Living with the Law" and was really sad to hear of his death at age 45. Listening to this album is just wonderful - Whitley and Lang are a great musical pair. The energy of the vocals and instruments really gets this kicking, and though their vocal styles are quite different, the two match each other really well. While I like it all, I really love "When I Paint My Masterpiece," "Dislocation Blues," and "Rocket House." This is as pure as it gets - no gimmicks, no tricks - just straight-on fantastic music. RIP Chris!

I walked into a Towers Record store in DC years ago (remember record and CD stores?) and Chris Whitley was playing on the store intercom as I quickly discovered. He appealed to me at a primal, almost hypnotic level. I also really like blues, slide and dobro, Whitley is not everyone's cup of tea or shot of bourbon, but I find his approach unique and really enjoy his style.
This is a nice example
