Review

Review Text Grapevine is Calhoun's tribute to the folk tradition that has influenced and shaped his life. Recorded solo, Grapevine offers the fruits of two and a half years of research, arranging and getting inside the songs and their history. Stephen Foster's "O Susanna" has been restored to it's original length of four verses; "Casey Jones" reworked to reflect the historical record; an epic "John Henry" adapted based on new research; there's a cowboy song, two whaling ballads, a river shanty, a spiritual, 3 old and one new song from Ireland, and "How Can I Keep from Singing?," blending Robert Wadsworth Lowry's 1895 hymn with folk versions. Housed in a gatefold LP style cardboard sleeve. "He is blessed with crystalline finger picking, a resonant baritone, and a writer's ear." - the Oregonian.
