Today's disc – Nils Hansson: Mercury Rev gives Bobbie Gentrys classic a totally different life

It was country, folk, schlagerpop and the regent in a single irresistible package, cinematic as a Hollywoodsuccé, and it is hardly an overstatement when talking about to say that it changed the history of music. Even if the summer of 1967 are usually associated with psychedelia and the summer of love” so was this season's biggest hit.

for a long time with its sequel. A mere six months later, she gave out ”The Delta sweetened”, a grandiose, posted temaalbum on the southern inner life, which covered most of the levels from the church to the prison, with grand arrangements and an earthy turn to the closest built-in to Tony Joe White-scented titles like ”Okolona River Bottom Band”.

It sold hardly at all, but has the time come to reach a right considerable status as Bobbie Gentrys unknown masterpiece.

Mercury Rev is a band with a completely other anchorages in the music. An eccentric alternativrockband from the state of New York, which after a few more experimental albums in the 90s had their breakthrough with a kind of floating indiepsykedelia, as shimmering as hard to get.

they lay now across almost every song, which had been a lousy idea if they also had acquired thirteen women gäströster to sing the twelve tracks. Mostly odd choice as Laetitia Sadier from Stereolab, Norwegian Susanne Sundfør, Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star, the former folksångarmysteriet Vashti Bunyan and mysjazzighetens superstar Norah Jones.

All of its character with itself, even the most tight-lipped, and creates a totally different kind of variation than in the original.

Lucinda Williams is one of the few that counts to americanatraditionen, but stands for only one magplasket in a difficult manierad ”Ode to Billie Joe” – and it was not included even in the original ”The Delta sweetened”.

Read more musiktexter of Nils Hansson, for example, if Green River could shatter before grunge in Seattle reached any wider audience.
