Rosanne Cash on "The River & the Thread"

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Rosanne Cash talks about her new album, “The River & the Thread,” her first since 2009. Cash wrote the album’s 11 original songs with her longtime collaborator (and husband) John Leventhal, who also served as producer, arranger and guitarist. Cash found inspiration in the many musical styles associated with the South – swampy Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country and rock, to name a few – to create this completely contemporary collection.

@ Cervantes (Jan. 31 2014 06:12 AM):

There were numerous references to Ms. Cash's father during the interview. Yet, I did not hear even one actual mention of his name. I maintain that this made no sense and that there should have been at least one actual, explicit mention of the late, legendary Johhny Cash.

If you read that as suggesting that Ms. Cash cannot stand in her own right or needs to be defined by her father, as you clearly did, then you may want to work on your reading comprehension. Or at least try to read more carefully and think more before posting. At least before confronting others with such a condescending, if not hostile (and completely gratuitous), tone.

Have a nice day.

Not a single explicit mention of just who Ms. Cash's illustrious father was?

My first reaction to the opening selection that was played was how much it sounded like the late Johnny Cash.

Would you (or could you) ask Mrs. Cash-Leventhal, if she has given any thought to trying to fill up the very deep vacuum left by the departure of Peter Seeger? In my very humble opinion she has the sensibilityt and the intelligence to do a great job.
Thank you (and apologies for posting this on the wrong spot earlier)
