Levon Helm Plays On!

Solo recording deepens gospel, blues
and soul sounds

 

We are
sensing a theme here. Levon Helm, who netted a Grammy Award for “Best
Traditional Folk Album” for his 2007 release Dirt Farmer, is back with a second solo recording Electric Dirt, which will be released
June 30.

 

As you
recall, Dirt Farmer was Helm’s first
solo recording in 25 years. The new CD follows the same basic artistry while
mixing even more gospel, blues and soul sounds that draw connections between
the land and those who live by it.

 

Although
there are many original songs, publicists note “eclectic cover songs” which
include The Grateful Dead’s Tennessee Jed and Happy Traum’s “Golden Bird.”
