The River & The Thread Album Trailer


"I went back to where I was born, and these songs started arriving in me," says Rosanne Cash. "All these things happened that made me feel a deeper connection to the South than I ever had. We started finding these great stories, and the melodies that went with those experiences."
With The River and the Thread, Cash has added the next chapter to a remarkable period of ... Read more in Amazon's Rosanne Cash Store

KING'S RECORD SHOP is outstanding. Not many albums can boast four marvelous #1 singles. Her version of "The Way We Make A Broken Heart" is magical. "If You Change Your Mind" is fantastic, once again Rosanne Cash shows she's an excellent writer. "Runaway Train" is my favorite, the song is pure dynamite. "Tenesse Flat Top Box" is another great song with some marvelous instrumental playing. The other songs on the record are just as good. The opening song "Rosie Strike Back" has magnificent arrangements. "The Real Me" continues the fantastic line of Rosanne Cash ballads, she sings sad songs like no one else can. "Somewhere Sometime" is a great uptempo rock flavored song. Rodney Crowell's "I Don't Have To Crawl" is done sensationally. "Green Yellow, And Red" is a neat number. "Why Don't You Quit Leaving Me Alone" ends the album with a relaxing feel. Unfortunately, KINGS RECORD SHOP is the only original Rosanne Cash album available from this classic period. While RIGHT OR WRONG and RHYTHM AND ROMANCE are outstanding albums with great songs, they've been pulled from print. Even though SEVEN YEAR ACHE is a classic Country album, it too is unavailable. Rosanne Cash's catalog is too rich to make her a singles artist, as 2 of her 3 hits collections concentrate on this period. Columbia Records would make a good decision if they would re-release RIGHT OR WRONG, SEVEN YEAR ACHE, SOMEWHERE IN THE STARS, RHYTHM AND ROMANCE, and not pull anything else from print in her catalog.

This album has been a favorite of mine since it was first released in 1987. The #1 hit "The Way We Make A Broken Heart" is one of those songs that I just never get tired of hearing. As with Rosanne's other albums, there is no filler on the disc. Each song is a standout. The album was a return to a more country sound after her more pop sounding "Rhythm & Romance" album from 1985 (another favorite of mine).

As for the remastering on the disc, the sound quality is pristine. In the booklet is an essay about the album in which, among other things, the album's cover shot is discussed. The shot was actually two seperate photos, an existing shot of the actual record shop with Rosanne (and the "Seven Year Ache" album) superimposed into the shot. This was way before computers made such a task so easy!

As for the bonus tracks, "707" was recorded for the album but left off the original release, it did appear on the "Retrospective" disc. There are two live tracks recorded in the 1990's These tracks sound muddy compared to the rest of the album, but are welcomed additions nonetheless.

The album is a must!

What a gem!! Rosie tackles everything from spousal abuse "Rosie Strike Back" to the slowly-growing and best cut "Runaway Train" which is a correlation of a reckless relationship to a runaway train. She handles her father's song "Tennessee Flat Top Box" which grace and dignity and shows the strength of a woman in "I Don't Have To Crawl". My favorites on here are: "Runaway Train", "The Way We Make A Broken Heart", "Green, Yellow, and Red", and "Why Don't You Quit Leaving Me Alone". If anyone has ever thought about having an affair, there is no way that you could do it after listening to "Way We Make A Broken Heart". "Why Don't You Quit Leaving Me Alone" is one of my favorite songs to listen to when I'm alone - I sit in the dark and crank this song up. This is one of Rosanne's best, although I have NEVER known her to make a terrible CD. She's an artist, so her songwriting grows with time and her music changes from disc to disc, but she's still Rosanne - a strong, confident woman with a vulnerable and sensitive side as well. One of the best female artists in country or pop or rock or folk... you get the idea!!

...even for 1987.

A return to Nashville for Cash after 1985's 'Rhythm & Romance', 'King's Record Shop' finds her in good form. And Nashville rewards her w/four #1 singles from this disk (the first for any female country artist).

Though her own tunes are sorely lacking here (or mostly), Cash makes up for w/superb song selection from other writers/artists.

John Haitt's "The Way We Make a Broken Heart" in lesser hands could have come off as one of the cheesiest country songs ever. She pulls it off flawlessly.

Almost all the cuts are stand-out (though I love "I Don't Have to Crawl" "Real Me" and "Runaway Train). Though everyone seems to love the cover of her father's "Tennesse Flat Top Box" it's never resonated with me, but that's a small thing on this disk.

Cash went on to make better disks, but this is still a solid purchase.

The remaster is clear and leaves the songs in better shape than they were in 1987. The copy protection on the disk allowed me to play in various players and rip and upload to iTunes/iPod. Unlike some other players, except for their momentary lapse in judgement, Sony hasn't screwed around too much w/that as of yet.

Since it is a reissue, there are the obligatory extra cuts. "707" is ok, but a rehash from the 'Retrospective' disk.
