New CD Album Releases, 4-26-2011: Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Robert Johnson Centennial

Robert JohnsonThere are a couple of moderately interesting new releases this week. Steve Earle has I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. The previews sound pretty listenable. Also, Emmylou Harris has Hard Bargain.

Also there is a Robert Johnson Centennial Collection on the occasion of his 100th birthday. However, he didn’t make it past age 26. He spent a total of five days recording 29 songs. I appreciate the idea of paying the greatest of the traditional original blues guitarists and songwriters his props, but there are obviously no new recordings to find. Plus, there’s only so much they can do with cleaning up the sound of these 75 year old recordings. You can DOWNLOAD ALL OF ROBERT JOHNSON’S SONGS freely at MoreThings. Perhaps you’d like to start with the “Me and the Devil Blues.”
