iTunes Editors' Notes

The guest list here is impressive: Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Robert Randolph, Tom Morello and Trent Reznor all join the elder statesman from the Band for his first album since 1998’s Contact From the Underworld of Red Boy. Robertson’s voice, always a limited animal, is used for maximum effect, adding an earthy midnight growl to these expertly played tunes that are pure professionalism. There’s a solid R&B groove working through “The Right Mistake” with Winwood on the Hammond B-3. A strong blues bite kicks up the dust for “He Don’t Live Here No More” and “Fear of Falling.” There’s a bit of autobiography backing these tracks, as the old bar-band veteran remembers his days before Dylan plucked him out of obscurity and made him a star. “She’s Not Mine” is a touching love song. “Madame X” is surprisingly gentle, considering the inclusion of Trent Reznor. “Tango for Django” is a tribute to Django Reinhardt and “Axman” is a tribute to all the other guitar heroes in Robertson’s life.

Customer Reviews

National Treasure

I love Dylan, Elvis Costello, Pete Townshend & the Who, McCartney (even or especially as he gets wiser and older). BUT, look at what we have in our own backyard: Neil Young (ok, he doesn't live here, but he still likes to visit), Ron Sexsmith, the Arcade Fire. and now the return of Robbie Robertson. Clapton and Winwood are great guests on this new (at last) album and Robert Randolph sounds sensational. Listen up Canada! Another national treasure is calling out to you and he sounds great.

How to Become Clairvoyant

Robbie brings together a storyteller's gift with a sonic mix that is not overly embellished but leaves this listener enough space for imagination. His voice continues to reflect life experience... seasoned, sensual, and soulful. Good choice of guests artists as well. They support and enhance. Well done, Robbie.

Can't stop listening

I had Q on CBC Radio yesterday and heard Robertson give context for many of these songs. You can download the April 7 podcast. Makes listening even better if that's possible.
