When Gillian Welch released her debut album, Revival, in 1996, plenty of listeners and critics were taken aback by her strikingly accomplished re-creation of the sound and mindset of country music of the '20s and '30s, as if she'd miraculously stepped out of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music into Nashville in the late 20th century. It soon became common knowledge that Welch was born in New York City and had attended the Berklee School of Music, leading many to question the sincerity of the artist and the validity of the work. Twenty years later, Welch has released Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg, a collection of outtakes, demos, and alternate versions committed to tape before or during the making of Revival.

The debut album from Gillian Glover, Red Handed, is a poised yet strident collection that manages to stamp her authority on the singer-songwriter genre, while never becoming bogged down by the constraints of the form… Resonating throughout are Glover's powerful vocals; her voice serves as a most decorative centrepiece to her own self-compositions. Red Handed doesn't fall easily into any single category; Glover mixes it up here with some gritty blues, soulful rock and a liberal taste of nu-country. The real common denominator with Gillian Glover is the total commitment to quality.
