On Ry's stunning new album he mixes covers (Blind Willie Johnson, Pilgrim Travelers, Stanley Brothers) and originals. The tracks share a particular resonance in this time and place, forming an unflinching look at the state of play in modern America. If you are fan of very early Ry (Purple Valley, etc.), you may wish to immerse yourself in this gem.
