June emerges a bit from the shadows of her legend / 4
It's tough enough when you're the daughter of "Mother" Maybelle Carter, head of the Carter of country music's founding institutions. It just gets harder when your husband Johnny has cut his own larger than life presence in Nashville. Add health problems to the mix and disinterest from a "Music City" only caring about gals with glitz rather than substance and it's a wonder this album even was made. The fact that it's this good is a tribute to the talent June was.

On first listen to this, I didn't really like it: I was wrong. June isn't a fabulous vocalist here..her voice is certainly showing the ravages of age. Hers, however, is a voice of character and her songwriting remains sharp. Though with the presence of some fine sidemen (Marty Stuart, Norman Blake, Rodney Crowell, and hubby Johnny), the focus is on June here.

While I miss the mariachi horns, the spare treatment June gives to "Ring of Fire" (you did know SHE wrote that one, right?) is refreshing. The tone is more melancholy and mournful as opposed to the peppy zest of Johnny's rendition. The gospel duet with Johnny of "Far Side Banks of Jordan" is positively spooky as they trade guesses as to who'll "cross over" first and promise to wait for the other. By May of the year this was released they'd have the answer: June would go first...Johnny would die just four months later almost to the day. "Gatsby's Restaurant" is a humorous broadside against city slickers. ("You can't ride a big white horse into the front of Gatsby's door..") "L&N Don't Stop Anymore" rides on a clicking rhythm (unidentified..maybe drummer Rick Lonow clicking his sticks together?) that's more spirited than Johnny's own version of the Tom T. Hall tune. (Johnny's version was found on SILVER, ASIN B00006GO97) "I Used to be Somebody" is a country "Glory Days" that's wonderfully self-deprecating. The Carter Family recorded many mountain murder ballads and here June adds one of her own in "Tall Lover Man". I may be in the minority but the backhanded tribute to filmmaker Quentin Tarantino in "Tiffany Anastasia Lowe" was another memorable moment on the disc for me. "Meeting in the Air" is a delirious country gospel shuffle.

Of the gospel numbers here, "Wings of Angels" is probably the weakest of the 4.

With apologies to Joni Mitchell, you don't know you've got 'til it's gone. Thankfully, June's music presses on...
