Forty Words For Fear Forty Words For Fear CD (2003)
CD $11.65 Buy It  Details
Madison Smartt Bell CD discography In an unusual but not unprecedented collaboration, novelist Madison Smartt Bell and poet Wyn Cooper join with producer/musicians Mitch Easter and Don Dixon to produce an album that falls near the intersection of their worlds. The result is Forty Words for Fear, a collection of lyrics that feel more like short stories set to songs that function like illustrations in a book of dreams. The instrumental performance has a raggedy quality that plays up the rough edges of the words. Bell has the dominant vocal presence; his semi-tuneless, weary, and worn delivery feels so natural that he almost seems to be improvising in response to the music.

He championed singer/songwriters in the Southern Townes Van Zandt/Guy Clark tradition, such as Robert Earl Keen, who returns the favor here by contributing "Counting on You," one of 11 previously unreleased songs on the disc. Brown gets name-checked in such tracks as Cary Hudson's "Song in C" and fellow novelist Madison Smartt Bell's "Going Down with Larry Brown," and his fiction is evoked specifically in Caroline Herring's "Song for Fay," based on his novel Fay, but more often than not the performers in their original songs are trying to evoke the mood of the writer and his milieu rather than relating to it explicitly. As it happens, their own points ...
Postcards out of the Blue Postcards out of the Blue CD (2008)
CD $15.39 Buy It  Details
Madison Smartt Bell albums Postcards Out of the Blue takes the listener on a metaphysical journey through the dreamscape of America in the 21st century, with songs that vary from subtle folk to gritty blues to solid rock. The words are by poet Wyn Cooper, the music by novelist Madison Smartt Bell, whose voice is as charmingly scarred as the subjects of some of the songs. Producer Don Dixon (REM, James McMurtry) also plays bass, Jim Brock keeps time on drums and over a dozen exotic percussion instruments, and Kenny Vaughan puts down some delicious electric guitar grooves for a ...
