Album Review

In his liner notes to All Over Creation, Jason Ringenberg writes that touring as a solo act behind A Pocketful of Soul caused him to spend a lot more time jamming with other musicians in his off hours than he ever had before, which led to this album, which finds him sharing each track with a different act (except for Kristi Rose and Fats Kaplin, who pop up twice). While A Pocketful of Soul focused on the traditional country side of Ringenberg's musical personality, All Over Creation is, well, all over the place, spinning between frantic rockabilly ("Honky Tonk Maniac From Mars" with Hamell on Trial), old-school country (a gender-reversed "Don't Come Home a Drinkin' [With Lovin' on Your Mind]" cut with BR5-49), balls-out rock & roll (the Wildhearts sit in on "One Less Heartache"), and subtle acoustic ballads ("I Dreamed My Baby Came Home," with Rose and Kaplan). If All Over Creation lacks the tighter focus of A Pocketful of Soul, its eclecticism certainly mirrors the embrace of country and rock in all their forms that fueled Ringenberg's music with Jason & the Scorchers, and there are more than a few truly stellar tracks here: a new version of "Bible and a Gun" featuring superb vocals from Steve Earle, a masterful tune about the Irish emigration; "Erin's Seed," recorded with Lambchop; a striking bluegrass version of the Gun Club's "Mother of Earth"; and a beautiful lament for the changing south and the ravages of time, "Last Train to Memphis." Despite the many talented guest stars on hand, this is Jason Ringenberg's show, and All Over Creation proves once again as both a singer and a tunesmith, he's a talent to be reckoned with. Great stuff.

Customer Reviews

I just LOVE the sound of this group!

I stumbled on this accidentally by searching for songs about "Camille'. (My daughter's name) .. with the popularity of this name growing, I'm sure I won't be the only one... But the guitar, the melody, wow! Everything... Oh! Especially the lyrics! It was my "MUSIC FIND" of the year! You guys rock! Thanks for the music!

Biography

Born: November 22, 1958 in Kewanee, IL

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s

While Gram Parsons may have the distinction of being the grandaddy of the ill-named "alt country" genre, Illinois farm boy Jason Ringenberg is certainly the man who brought the music — before the phrase was coined — to the stages of the world with a vengeance. Born in 1959 and raised on a pig farm in southern Illinois, Ringenberg moved to Nashville in 1981 to try his luck as a songwriter. He formed an acoustic country/punk band with drummer Jack Emerson called Jason & the Scorchers...
