Editors’ Notes

Nanci Griffith's Intersection reflects the personal and political turmoil around her as she attempts to make sense of a world where even an established musician like herself has to adjust to a new music business order. Recorded at her home studio in Nashville with coproducers Pete and Maura Kennedy and Pat McInerney, Intersection features the rocked-up "Hell No (I'm Not Alright)" in both studio and live versions. Its anthemic quality is quite a departure from her usual level of measured introspection. It's a fun piece, but she still finds most of her shelter in the words of Blaze Foley's classic "If I Could Only Fly" and in the grey fields of "Bethlehem Steel", recounting how a 2003 mill shutdown left a hole in that Pennsylvania community. She brings her maturity to a reinvention of "Just Another Morning Here", a track more than 20 years old. "Bad Seed" takes an unflinching look at her own difficult upbringing. There's an old-time rock 'n' roll bounce in its acoustic performance, reminiscent in part of Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open My Door".

Customer Reviews

Great return to form

I've only listened to this album a couple of times, but already I love it. I've always been a big fan of Nanci's earlier albums, because they were simpler more acoustic affairs than her more recent ones. This album seems to hark back to that earlier music. I'm looking forward to getting to know these tracks better.


Hard not to make friends with every track. Poignant, uplifting and a joy to listen to. Stuck on replay! 'Must buy' for NG devotees and newcomers alike.

Welcome Back

This is a return to her earlier roots, and some of the tracks sound strangely close to her earlier work also, but with a fresh interpretation. Love it, was getting a little bored with some of her later stuff (covers) but this release is GREAT. don't get me wrong Nanci has a large body of work, and most of it is bloody fantastic! Buy this!!!!!

Straddling the fine line between folk and country music, Nanci Griffith has become as well-known for her brilliant, confessional songwriting as her beautiful voice. A self-styled "folkabilly" singer, Griffith began as a kindergarten teacher and occasional folksinger. The country scene took her to heart in the mid-'80s, giving her a reputation as a quality songwriter through hit covers of Griffith's songs by Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss. Finding no luck with commercial country radio however, Griffith...
