Produktinformationen "Russell, Tom - Play One More - The Songs of Ian & Sylvia"
Tom Russell selbst hat in seiner langen Karriere 35 Alben aufgenommen, sich einen Ruf als Maler und Autor erworben. Und doch nie vergessen, wer seine großen Einflüsse sind/waren.

Zwölf Stücke aus dem schier unerschöpflichen Katalog von Ian And Sylvia hat sich Tom Russell ausgesucht und gecovert, den Überflieger von Ian And Sylvia: Four Strong Winds (u.a. gecovert von Johnny Cash und Neil Young) dabei ganz bewusst außen vor gelassen.

The rich musical legacy of Ian and Sylvia continues to entertain millions of fans across the globe, and today singer songwriter, painter, and essayist Tom Russell announced a project honouring their music with new interpretations of classic songs with his May 19th release of Play One More: The Songs Of Ian And Sylvia.

Russell has recorded 35 highly acclaimed records, & published five books - including a book on his art and a book of his songs. Russell and Ian and Sylvia share similar values and cultural traditions - both deeply rooted in the depth of the song and story. Russell says, The music of Ian and Sylvia has stood up over a half of a century and is still recognized as deeply Canadian, it was an honour to pay tribute to them.

In 1992, Ian and Sylvia were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the Juno Awards ceremony. In 1994 they were both made Members of the Order of Canada.

In 2005 an extensive CBC poll determined Ian Tyson's song, recorded by Ian and Sylvia, Four Strong Winds, to be the most essential piece of Canadian music, and is no doubt the most popular Canadian song ever written. But don’t look for it on Play One More: The Songs of Ian and Sylvia. Russell says, I wanted to mine the deep, neglected, album tracks that I've listened to for over forty years. Works that I could never get out of my mind. Classic songwriting.

Russell’s songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, K.D. Lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris Dement, Joe Ely, and a hundred others.

In 2015 Russell released a 52 track folk opera on the West, The Rose of Roscrae, which was hailed as Maybe the most important Americana record of all time by UK Folk, and The top Folk album of 2105, by Mojo Magazine. It was included in top ten lists in three dozen publications, including The Los Angeles Times.
