Electric Dirt

Levon Helm - 2009

Recovering from throat cancer has given Helm a new lease on life, and evidently the inspiration to show the world his worth as one American rocks legends. The album is a soundtrack for old-school American farm hands, filled with tales of shotguns, train hopping, and working the land. Levons sound hasnt changed much since his days in The Band. The songs are accentuated by soulful harmonies of Helms daughter Amy, as well as horns arranged by Allen Toussaint. More than anything, Electric Dirt is an authentic work, by an authentic artist. (standout tracks: You Cant Lose What You Aint Never Had; When I Go Away)
