Rose and the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in American Ballads album for sale Product Description



Rose and the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in American Ballads album for sale was released Sep 28, 2004 on the Columbia label. Assembled by Sean Wilents and Greil Marcus to accompany the book of the same title, The Rose and the Briar: Death, Love and Liberty in American Ballads is organized around the central question, "What does the American ballad say about America?" Well, judging from the selections collected, it would appear that America (no surprise here) is most obsessed with love and death and the attendant subplots of murder and betrayal, with an occasional train or car wreck tossed in for metaphorical value (if you move too fast you'll pay dearly....). The selections range from vintage 1920s and 1930s 78s, including Clarence Ashley's mysterious riddle of gambling and false-hearted love, "The Cuckoo," and two chilly Appalachian murder ballads, "Ommie Wise" (its melody, sped-up, later morphed into "Wabash Cannonball") by fiddler G.B. Grayson and "Pretty Polly" by the Coon Creek Girls, to more recent fare by Randy Newman ("Sail Away"), Bruce Springsteen ("Nebraska"), and Bob Dylan ("Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts").   ...See Full Description
