EDITORS’ NOTES

With 25 years together and 10 albums released, Marley's Ghost can now perform American roots music with an authority that befits its longevity. Jubilee features six originals and seven covers recorded by Nashville legend Cowboy Jack Clement at his Sound Emporium studio. Guests include Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Marty Stuart, Old Crow Medicine Show, Larry Campbell, Byron House, and Don Heffington, all celebrating the group's milestone. Bobby and Shirley Womack's "It's All Over Now" gets a formal hoedown rendition. Kris Kristofferson's "This Old Road" is given a straight country read. Harris joins in on lead and harmony for John Prine's "Unwed Fathers." A version of Levon Helm and Larry Campbell's "Growin' Trade" lets Ed Littlefield Jr. evoke the late Helm's rustic beauty. Paul Siebel's "She Made Me Lose My Blues" fits Marley's Ghost's style as easefully as the three Dan Wheetman originals that open the album, including the spectacular "Wake Up Mama" (which should make even seasoned musicians blush). Jubilee features inspired and enviable performances throughout.

About Marley's Ghost

Marley's Ghost is an eclectic unit steeped in everything from gospel to bluegrass to old-time to Celtic to country -- even reggae. The group originally came together in 1986 when Danny Wheetman was invited by his friend Ed Littlefield Jr. to work on a solo effort in Littlefield's studio in Arlington, WA. Jon Wilcox and Mike Phelan came up from California to help out. (The three had been playing together since St. Patrick's Day of that year.) While working on the solo effort, the three began recording the tracks for what would become the Marley's Ghost debut album Haunting Melodies. Littlefield offered to play steel guitar and the group was born. Vocalist Wheetman plays bass, rhythm guitar, fiddle, harmonica, banjo, Dobro, and lap steel. Wilcox, who holds a law degree from Stanford, sings and plays mandolin and rhythm guitar. Columbus, OH, native Phelan sings and plays lead guitar, fiddle, Dobro, bass, and lap steel. Littlefield sings and plays pedal steel, Highland bagpipes, mandolin, Dobro, and lead guitar. The group released Live at the Freight, a collection commemorating their 15 years together, in January 2001 on Sage Arts Records. ~ Erik Hage
