Every track on the album is outstanding and highlights of the first half included A Feather’s Not A Bird, Etta’s Tune, Tell Heaven, 50,000 Watts and Money Road. Rosanne talked about the background to each song which was then accompanied by a backdrop of images from the South.
Following a short interval she opened the second half with Radio Operator and followed with a great selection of material covering her career – I’m Movin’ On, Long Black Veil, Tennessee Flat Top Box (with some excellent guitar playing), Blue Moon With A Heartache and Seven Year Ache. She dedicated Biloxi, another track from her current album, to the songs composer Jesse Winchester who had recently passed away.
We were due to meet Rosanne after the show but a strike by Undergound workers look set to ruin our plans with the worry of making to across London in time to catch the last train home. Fortunately Rosanne kindly offered to meet us before the show and we spent twenty minutes backstage chatting to her, John Leventhal and her tour manager.
Rosanne Cash is a very talented and outstanding singer-songwriter, who makes every word and note count. Her incredible voice fits perfectly with her style of music.
A great evening and I must take this opportunity to thank both Rosanne and John for inviting us and making us feel so welcome and Piers Mason and the staff at Serious for organising the tickets and passes.
