One of the best songwriters of the 1960s and early '70s, with an unassuming style that managed to sound like Fred Neil, J.J. Cale, Jim Croce, Randy Newman, Leonard Cohen, and early Tom Waits by turns (and sometimes all at once), Jesse Winchester would have been as well known and regarded as any of these had history not swept him from Louisiana, where he was born, to Montreal, Canada, where he took up residence in exile (like thousands of other young men at the time) to avoid the Vietnam War. Winchester was working gigs as a lounge pianist when his draft notice came, and while he joined a couple of local bands after his flight to Canada, his life as a musician had been torn apart.

From the opening vocals of the almost rockabilly "Club Manhattan," the undeniably excellent songwriting of Jesse Winchester makes its way back into our collective psyche. Backed by an unparalleled group of musicians, and with guest appearances from such musical dignitaries as the Fairfield Four, Jerry Douglas, Steve "The Colonel" Cropper, and Vince Gill, Winchester has assembled a highly enjoyable album, filled with the same magic his past releases all possessed. The kind of musical and lyrical genius that has caused dozens of artists to record his music gets into some funky blues territory with "Sweet Little Shoe," and downright beautiful with "That's What Makes You Strong," featuring the lap steel guitar work of Jerry Douglas, who also acts as producer for the album.

As the title suggests, making a virtue of necessity had always been one of Jesse Winchester's goals, and by the time of the release of his third album, the American expatriate had gone ahead and assumed Canadian citizenship. This seemed to free him to comment explicitly on his antiwar exile in "Pharaoh's Army" and especially a version of the old campaign song "Tell Me Why You Like Roosevelt" updated with new lyrics: "In the year of 1967, as a somewhat younger man, the call to bloody glory came, and I would not raise my hand."

Annotator Jeff Hannusch calls the Australian Jesse Winchester release Defying Gravity a live album, although there is little sound of an audience on the tracks (rarely is applause heard at the end of songs, for instance), and the recording is otherwise unidentified in the release by the AIM label. Aural evidence and song selection, however, suggest that this 65-minute recording chronicles Winchester's touring band of about 1977. The material comes largely from his early albums Jesse Winchester; Third Down, 110 to Go; Learn to Love It; Let the Rough Side Drag; and Nothing But a Breeze, and it is notable, for instance, that in performing "Tell Me Why You Like Roosevelt" (from the 1974 Learn to Love It), Winchester updates the lyric to refer to President Jimmy Carter, who took office in January 1977 and immediately pardoned Vietnam War resistors like Winchester, who had moved to Canada in 1967 rather than submit to the military draft.

Jesse Winchester's first LP is one of my favorite albums ever. It is produced by Robbie Robertson and Todd Rundgren and shows what great songwriter Jesse is. The best of Americana long before the word Americana was invented.

By the time Jesse James was killed in 1882, he'd stolen over a million and a half dollars according to some estimates–gold, coins and cash that could be worth over $50 million today. History often paints James as a clever outlaw who stole money to finance a lavish criminal lifestyle, a man whose sixteen year long crime spree came to a dramatic halt in 1882 when a fellow gang member betrayed him and shot him dead in the back of the head. But now, a treasure hunt may reveal a totally new story.

Ian Matthews left Fairport Convention in 1969, and while the U.K.'s greatest folk-rock band was beginning to reinvent itself in a more traditional and very British direction, Matthews began digging deeper into the American influences that had marked his old band's first era. Later That Same Year, the second album from Ian's new group Matthews Southern Comfort (it was released in late 1970, a mere six months after their debut, hence the title), is a beautiful set of songs that splits the difference between West Coast folk-rock and early country-rock, with Gordon Huntley's pedal steel and Roger Coulam's lending an air of sunny sadness that dovetails beautifully with Matthews' silky tenor. Matthews wrote three of the songs on Later That Same Year, and they rank with the album's finest moments, especially the ethereal harmonies of "And Me" and the graceful simplicity of "My Lady," but Matthews also borrows some excellent material from American writers, including a cover of Neil Young's "Tell Me Why" that remains faithful while creating a languid mood of its own.

A talk show with Elvis Costello interviewing other musicians could have been unbearably precious, but Costello is such a formidable songwriter, and so obviously bright and quick, that he keeps his equilibrium even with three of rock’s biggest stars: Bruce Springsteen, and U2’s Bono and The Edge. The highlight of the second season of Spectacle: Elvis Costello with . . . is doubtless the two shows with Springsteen. In the first, Costello reaches back to the songwriter’s first two records, prompting the Boss to remember his early days, when he and his band hustled for work in bars along the Jersey shore. Nils Lofgren and Roy Bittan join Springsteen onstage for "Wild Billy’s Circus Story," a song from his second album, The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle.

GRIEF / INTENSITY / FRIENDSHIP is the 4th full-length album from Vancouver’s Jesse LeBourdais; 12 new songs borne out of the pain of loss, the strength of friendship and the excitement of things to come. Jesse and his band – the Long Winter – began recording in the fall of 2016 with legendary Engineer/Producer Jesse Gander at Vancouver’s Rain City Recorders. Most of the album was recorded live-on-the-floor and mixed using analog gear; the end result is his most cohesive and sonically driven collection of songs to date.
