Biography

"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

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great country album! January 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Seven Year Ache" was Rosanne Cash's second major label album. Released in 1981 and was very much in the same vein that Emmylou Harris's albums had been from. No surprise since Rodney Crowell who had been a member of Emmy's Hot Band was now working with Rosanne. The album spawned three #1 country hits, the title track, "My Baby Thinks He's A Train" and the incredible "Blue Moon With Heartache". Much like Emmylou Harris's albums from the late 70's, there isn't a weak track on the album. Emmylou even shows up singing harmony on the album. Vince Gill and Ricky Scaggs also provide backing vocals. One of the tracks, "Hometown Blues" was written by Tom Petty, Rosanne was probably the first country artist to cover a Petty song. Incidently the track sounds somewhat similar to Petty's "Thing About You" which appeared on his "Hard Promises" album from the same year. Overall this is a great album, one that has been out of print or very hard to find for some time now. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. Today's country artists could learn a thing or two from this album! By the way, the two bonus tracks are "The Feeling" which is listed as previously unreleased, but Rosanne's 1982 single "Ain't No Money" was backed by a song called "The Feeling" it's probably the same song. The other bonus track is a 1990's live version of "Seven Year Ache". Classic!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Reissue of the Reissue April 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For her 2nd release, Cash turns in an extremely solid effort. I really liked her debut 'Right or Wrong', but 'Seven Year Ache' gave a good glance at what was really to come.

Nothing against the outside writers who contributed their songs -but for her initial songwriting efforts, she pulls off two extremely strong tracks and they carry the album (the title track and "Blue Moon w/Heartache").

All tracks have their high points - and the only I one I usually skip over is 'Hometown Blues". "Seven Year Ache" is a great track that holds up for 2+ decades and is up there w/the perfect songs of this genre....and pretty good overall for most.

Cash's vocals are strong and Rodney Crowell's production is clean - almost too clean. Good use of Crowell's band and former Hot Band memebers. Rosemary Butler and Emmylou Harris do outstanding harmony vocal work throughout the entire disk.

The extra track for this disk is ok, but nothing that anyone was ever missing. The live version of "Seven Year Ache" is muddy and either poorly recorded or performed. Only the live cuts on 'Interiors' seems to really be of good quality.

Sound quality on the remaster is good - as it is for her other two reissues. Really worth checking out. btw...could not find any of the reissues in stores. All were ordered through amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roseanne Cash -Seven year ache June 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Seven year ache was the first song I ever heard Roseanne sing,I just had to get the album after that.A Damn good album it is,too! The fist song Rainin,Rocks like Pat Benatar,very cool. The second song is the song that was her destiny to perform,the great Seven Year Ache. The third song is a torch song called Blue moon with heartache,hauntingly beautiful. Song #4 is 'What kind of girl?was written by the guy that wrote Romeo's tune,pure Rockabilly. Next is You don't have very far to go which is a pure country tune. Song #6 is another rocker called My baby thinks he's a train,Like a sexier Linda Ronstadt kinda thing. Tune 7 is a midtempo pop song called Only Human. The 8th song is more classic country called 'Where will the words come from'. There is also a pretty good cover of a Tom Petty song, and 2 more that are kind of lame. Overall this album Kicks Ass. 5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 10 if I could... August 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the ten best country albums of all time - period.
Ground breaking, and how I wish Rosanne would have kept on with this kind of music...
Alas, her first two are going to stay her best two from the looks of things...
