  • Carlene Carter: Carter Girl review Johnny Cash's stepdaughter revisits Carter Family classics

    (Rounder)

    Carlene Carter comes from a legendary musical family; her grandmother was Maybelle Carter from country music heroes the Carter Family, her mum was June Carter Cash, and her stepfather was Johnny Cash. Carlene has revived their songs before, but never with this intensity and emotion. Producer Don Was has recaptured the energy she showed in the late 1970s when she recorded in London with the likes of Graham Parker, Dave Edmunds and her former husband Nick Lowe, but there's a new maturity to her stomping, brooding treatment of Little Black Train, or the thoughtful Give Me the Roses, one of several songs about death. The set includes duets with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Vince Gill, who joins her for the finest, saddest track, Lonesome Valley 2003, in which she rewrites a Carter Family song to lament her mother's death. She has done justice to her history.

    Johnny Cash's career was in the doldrums when in the early 80s he made Out Among the Stars, which has been gathering dust in Sony's vaults for 30 years. Marketed as the Man in Black's great lost album, it is nothing of the sort. For one, Cash rarely reveals the vulnerability that would characterise his later albums with Rick Rubin, while the songs, often jaunty and sterile, are an ill fit for his rumbling voice. It's not all bad - I'm Movin' On, a duet with Waylon Jennings, hints at the depths that Rubin would exploit - but this is the sound of a man who'd lost his way.
