Product Description

M.C. Records released Shout, Sister, Shout: a Tribute To Sister Rosetta Tharpe, which features an all-star cast of female singers performing some of the best songs associated with the groundbreaking artist who blurred the lines between gospel and secular music. Some of the artists featured on the new album include Joan Osborne, Maria Muldaur (accompanied by Bonnie Raitt on guitar), Michelle Shocked, Sweet Honey In The Rock, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Janis Ian, Marcia Ball, Victoria Williams, Tracy Nelson, Angela Strehli and Marie Knight. M.C. Records president Mark Carpentieri first heard Sister Rosetta Tharpe in 1999 at the home of rockabilly legend Sleepy LaBeef, himself a big fan of the singer/guitarist, and who acknowledges her music as a big influence Sleepy said, 'Everything I learned on the guitar was from Sister Rosetta,' remembers Carpentieri. I was completely moved by the singing, the playing the spirituality, it was a revelation. With the idea of doing a tribute album, Carpentieri began reaching out to artists to gauge their interest. One of those was Maria Muldaur, who loved Tharpe and had actually seen her perform. I asked Maria about putting together a tribute and would she liked to be involved, says Carpentieri. She couldn't say yes fast enough. After two years, hundreds of phone calls and thousands of miles traveled, we've been able to put this album together to salute one of the most underrated American musicians of the twentieth century.

The music of the late Sister Rosetta Tharpe is one of those buried treasures of Americana periodically exhumed to delight the previously unaware. Nominally a gospel singer, she was in fact a triple-threat performer: singer, guitarist, and composer. Of course, the respectful and tasteful covers by the all-female roster here reveal only Tharpe's compositional contributions. Festival staples like "This Train," sung by Janis Ian (with some snappy guitar picking of her own), and "Precious Memories," done in haunting but near tuneless fashion by Sweet Honey in the Rock, are joined by spirited renditions of lesser known Tharpe originals like "Beams of Heaven" (taken to church by Phoebe Snow) and "Up Above My Head" (Maria Muldaur). Other contributors like Victoria Williams, Rory Block, Odetta, and Michelle Shocked bring Tharpe's repertoire into their own stylistic realms. Tharpe's former singing partner Marie Knight most closely approaches the fervor of her late friend on "Didn't It Rain," with Jimmy Vivino hinting at Tharpe's guitar style. Thankfully the CD includes an MPEG of the Sister herself singing and rocking out on electric guitar with an energy unequaled elsewhere on the record. This video and her fascinating story as told by Gayle Wald in the extensive notes make Shout, Sister, Shout! a must-have. --Michael Ross
