Because of a rare anxiety disorder known as hysterical dysphonia, Linda Thompson hasn't recorded a new album of music in 17 years. She returns with Fashionably Late, a collection featuring her ex-husband, Richard Thompson and two of their children.
Rockabilly, country-blues guitarist/songwriter Steve Earle says of his latest CD: "This is a political record because there seems no other proper response to the place we're at now." It's due for release in September.
The Blind Boys of Alabama first formed in 1939 at the Albama Institute for the Negro Blind. Now, more than sixty years later, they've released a new CD collection of classic and contemporary spiritual songs.
