Vince Gill – High Lonesome Sound (2003) [DVD-Audio ISO]

Vince Gill – High Lonesome Sound
Artist: Vince Gill | Album: High Lonesome Sound | Style: Bluegrass, Country | Year: 2003 [1996 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MPL 5.1 88.2kHz/24Bit, MPL 2.0 88.2kHz/24 Bit, AC3 5.1 48kHz/16Bit, PCM 2.0, 44.1kHz/16Bit) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 11 | Size: 3.41 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Covers: in archive | Release: MCA Nashville (SEL:B0001121-19), 2003 | Note: Not Watermarked

Vince Gill takes off on a tour of American music on High Lonesome Sound. The title cut steps back to a time he hasn’t visited in a while, drawing on his days as a bluegrass singer and guitarist to create a soaring, harmony-driven sound that applies Appalachian drive to modern country rhythms. Most of the rest of the album’s journey treks in new directions. The aggressive guitar riff that opens “One Dance with You” is straight Chicago blues, while the jaunty feel that enlivens “Down to New Orleans” draws on the Windy City’s funky rhythms with a deft touch worthy of Little Feat — with Lowell George, that is. “Tell Me Lover,” also bearing the trace print of Little Feat, dances through a swampy groove. The arrangements by Gill and producer Tony Brown give traditional sounds a modern sheen while maintaining a distinct regional flavor. Gill gets much more room to show off his impressive guitar prowess than on his past records. A pair of small complaints are that his lyrics don’t match the music (they are steeped in the modern country topical schemes) and he can overly sweeten the blues. Elsewhere, he uses the clichéd aspects of Cajun music in paying homage to Louisiana’s musical heritage (R&B and New Orleans second-line rhythms aren’t here and should be, because he’s musically sophisticated enough to pull them off). Therefore, this album works best when he’s not straining for authenticity: “Worlds Apart,” “Given More Time,” and “Pretty Little Adriana” leaven his tried-and-true formula into arrangements that are more progressively atmospheric than his past hits. Gill owns too many strengths to need to transform himself into Lowell George or Bonnie Raitt at this point in his career; he can leave his own mark on any music he chooses to play and — for the most part — does so here.

VA – Inside the Music – Women on Top (2001) [DVD-Audio ISO]

VA – Inside the Music – Women on Top
Artist: Various Artists | Album: Inside the Music – Women on Top | Style: Pop, Rock | Year: 2001 | Quality: DVD-Audio (MPL 5.1 96kHz/24Bit, DTS 5.1, Dolby AC3 5.1) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 10 | Size: ~3.15 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Release: Silverline Records, 2001 | Note: Not Watermarked

A collection of ten tracks by female artists released in DVD Audio, Inside the Music: Women on Top is strangely reminiscent of the compilations released when the CD was still a developing format. Most of the track selections are solid enough, including Blondie’s “Heart of Glass,” Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking on Sunshine,” and Kim Carnes’ “Bette Davis Eyes,” but they’re also somewhat dated; Wilson Phillips’ “Hold On” is the most recent track included on the album. Likewise, it’s questionable whether anyone really wants to try out their new DVD Audio system with Vixen’s “Cryin’.” Missing Persons’ “Words,” the Motels’ “Only the Lonely,” and Ike and Tina Turner’s “Nutbush City Limits” round out this odd collection, which is entertaining enough, but hardly state-of-the-art.

Van Zant – Brother To Brother (2003) [DVD-AUDIO ISO]

Van Zant – Brother To Brother
Artist: Van Zant | Album: Brother To Brother | Style: Country, Southern Rock | Year: 2003 [1998 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MLP 5.1 96kHz/24Bit, Dolby AC3 5.1) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 11 | Size: 3.4 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Covers: in archive | Release: Sanctuary | Silverline Records (288186-9), 2003 | Note: Not Watermarked

Brother to Brother marks the first time Johnny and Donnie Van Zant have ever collaborated together, and the results are exactly what fans of either Lynyrd Skynyrd or .38 Special would expect — a set of tough, bluesy Southern rock. Instrumentally, it nearly achieves its full potential, capturing both of the guitarists in fine form. However, the material is a bit inconsistent, with several songs lacking memorable hooks or melodies. Still, the songs that do work are dynamite, and even the weaker tracks have their moments. And that means Brother to Brother is a worth a listen by any serious Skynyrd, Special or VanZant fan.
