Formato: CD de audio
Having debuted this all-female backing lineup at San Francisco's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in 2008, Dave Alvin and his estrogen-packing band have waxed a gem. Christy McWilson and Amy Farris' harmonies and duets prove compelling partners to Alvin's baritone on an album of blues, rock, folk and a few surprises. Chief among the surprises is the Cajun fiddle and pedal steel arrangement of Alvin's "Marie Marie," rendered so convincingly that it will take you a second to remember the Blasters signature original. From there the group comes out blasting with the galloping electric folk-blues "California's Burning," an allegorical tale that provides a requiem for the Golden State's cash-strapped coffers. Alvin and McWilson duet like Richard and Mimi Fariña here, and Cindy Cashdollar adds some fiery slide playing.

The passing of friend and bandmate Chris Gaffney was one of Alvin's motivations for forming this alternative to his Guilty Men, and he's obviously in a reflective, memorial mood. "Downey Girl" remembers fellow Downey high school student Karen Carpenter and in his middle age Alvin finds a sympathetic appraisal of her fame. Nostalgia for young-pup years has always threaded through Alvin's work, and with "Boss of the Blues" he ties together a nostalgic memory of Joe Turner with Turner's own nostalgic memories of the golden years of the blues. One of the album's happiest and transformative memories, of being dropped off at a Jimi Hendrix concert, opens with the "Folsom Prison" rewrite, "My mother told me, be a good boy, and don't do nothing wrong."

Christy McWilson (Dynette Set, Pickets) sings lead on a pair of her own originals, "Weight of the World" and "Potter's Field," continuing the mood of struggle that pervaded her two Alvin-produced solo albums. A real standout is her up-tempo duet with Alvin on a cover of Tim Hardin's oft-covered "Don't Make Promises." Alvin and McWilson have paired for `60s covers before, notably Moby Grape's "805" on 2002's Bed of Roses, but this one's extended acoustic guitar jam really hits the mark. The closing cover of "Que Sera, Sera" suggests Alvin may be ready to move past his grief, but the song's fatalism is strangely at odds with the rocking country blues arrangement.

When he's not fondly remembering happier times, Alvin sings low through much of the album, reaching a level of quiet introspection on "These Times We're Living In" that brings to mind Leonard Cohen. The loss of Chris Gaffney has left a mark on Alvin, and for now at least, his music. His backing band is not just a terrifically talented quintet deeply steeped in the roots of their shared music, but a place for Alvin to rest his soul and rethink his relationship to the Guilty Men minus one. This is more than a temporary respite; it's a revitalizing step towards artistic and personal rediscovery. [©2009 hyperbolium dot com]

Another great release from Dave Alvin. This band that he has assembled is great and they complement Dave very well. Dave just has one of those voices that you can't wait to hear in a duet and this record gives you some great harmonies.

Let's face it, Dave has yet to put out a record that is not an instant classic and this one is a great addition to his body of work. I'm just hoping that he will continue to record with this band for a while.

If you're new to Americana, you could not pick a better artist to start with. His ability to blend blues, country and rock n' roll is really unmatched in the industy. It's effortless and natural. A true voice in American Music.

Let me state at the outset that I love Dave Alvin and have seen him numerous times with his band The Guilty Men. I have never seen anything but a great show and one of the main reasons for this is that the band rocks. It's tight and spontaneous at the same time. And of course, Alvin is an outstanding guitarist and song writer.
But this CD, DAVE ALVIN & THE GUILTY WOMEN, is the worst by Dave I've ever heard. This Alvin CD feels to me like dreary folk-fest by a collection of young (I guess) and disconcertingly earnest women. I like female singers a lot, but I prefer that they have a little soul, be it R&B, country, whatever. Lee Ann Womack, for example, or Patty Loveless are singers who have the cojones to work well with Alvin. But as the women he has with him on DA&TGW do not, the CD consists of non-descript and uninteresting songs which fit their styles.
There is one absolutely great song, "Boss of the Blues", on the CD. This song would be right at home on any other Alvin CD. "Marie Marie", one of Alvin's older songs is fine, though somewhat uninspired. And one of the Guilty Women's songs, "Potter's Field" is pleasant enough.
On the other end of the spectrum, "Don't Make Promises" is not only enervating at best, but it's close to 7 minutes long, and about 2/3 of the way through it, though I had stopped actively listening to it a while back, I became aware of it as an irritating background drone. Slightly better, due at least in part to the fact that they're shorter, are "River Under the Road", "These Times We're Living In", and "Weight of the World". It's not that the songs are unpleasant, but that they're boring.
And the CD slinks on out with an unnecessary Alvin version, for whatever reason, of "Que Sera Sera".
Mine is clearly a minority opinion here, but I've listened to the CD four times now in the hopes that I might grow to like it, but it ain't gonna happen. In my opinion, DA&TGW is pretty much a waste of time, and I rate it two stars only because of "Boss of the Blues" which is the only song on here I'll listen to again, and because it's Dave Alvin.
What follows is an addition to the above CD review:

I went to a concert by Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women on August 22, 2009, at the Blueberry Hill Duck Room in St. Louis, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen anywhere.
The Guilty Women flat out rip it up. You will not find a more burning band anywhere and I have to say they were as good as The Guilty Men, and that's damn good.
Even "Que Sera, Sera" was terrific, as Dave played it as a Chuck Berry number.
I still feel the same way about the CD, but the women playing with him have soul to spare, and anyone who likes Dave Alvin or just great rock and roll should see their show if you can.

Was curious about this album and went to see Dave and the Guilty Women in Pittsburgh. The show was excellent. I bought the CD and have listened to every song about 10 times. I like "Don't Make Promises" "Downey Girl" "California's Burning" "Boss of the Blues" "River under the Road" and "Potter's Field". So half the CD is good (in my opinion) and the other half is so-so. But if you get the chance to see Dave live, he's terrific.

Dave Alvin has always had a voice to reckon with and most recently, a back-up group,the Guilty Men to support him. In 2008, his best friend and member of the Guilty Men, Chris Gaffney died of liver cancer. This was a definite blow to Dave Alvin, and he knew he could not mourn and sing and replace his beloved friend. Instead he replaced the men with a group of women, who came together as if they had sung for a life time-the new group- the Guilty Women. Christy McWilson on vocals, guitarist Nina Gerber, steel guitar player Cindy Cashdollar, violinists Amy Farris, Laurie Lewis, bassist Sarah Brown and drummer Lisa Pankratz rounded up the seven who surround Dave Alvin with the best of sounds.

There are twelve tunes and Dave Alvin wrote six of them. 'Marie, Marie' a Zydeco tune starts the CD with a Cajun swing. It seems that Dave Alvin is continuing with his love of singing about California. 'California Burning' sung with McChristy in the background is a tune about the financial and environmental issues of the state. 'Downey' a tune about a classmate, Karen Carpenter, tender and sweet. 'She was a Downey Girl'.
'Weight of the World' gives a chance to sing her tune and a gritty tune it is. Dave Alvin credits his tutelage to Big Joe Turner, and his 'Boss of the Blues' is a memory of him on Central Avenue. 'Potters Field' -bury me in Potters Field, a shout out to his friend Chris. 'These Times We Are Living' Dave Alvin's voice is meant to sing this tune. 'Nana and Jimi' mom said don't do wrong- a song about going to see Jimi Hendrix when Alvin was 12 years old-mom waited outside in the car. A wonderful guitar slide in this song. Tim Hardin's old tune- 'Don't Make Promises'-violins and strings and soulful voices. 'Que Sera, Que Sera' whatever will be, will be', sung with a detailed beat and swing that has us tappin' our toes.

The grouping of Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women is fabulous. They have become as one and the music seems to flow so sweetly. The voices are clean and crisp and match Dave Alvin. Let's hear from this group over and over.

Highly Highly Recommended. prisrob 06-09-09
