Reseña de álbum

The tracks that comprise Wildwood Flower became June Carter Cash's final recording sessions, and were held from October 2002 to March 2003. Largely a family affair, Wildwood Flower is easily Carter Cash's least polished recording and perhaps her best. Husband Johnny sings in either duet or as backup on almost all the tracks; also singing are daughter Carlene, granddaughter Tiffany Anastasia Lowe, and cousins Joe and Janette Carter (children of Sara and A.P. Carter). Johnny and June's son John Carter Cash produced the album and former son-in-law Marty Stuart makes an appearance or two as well. Creating most of the instrumental merrymaking are Norman and Nancy Blake. And it is fitting that this collection of family and friends created June Carter Cash's recorded epitaph. These songs are intimate, frighteningly so. Her voice, as well as Johnny Cash's, are mere shadows of what once were golden throats, and the songs were by and large written by A.P. Carter, with one by June and a cover of a Leon Russell tune. The ghosts of the original Carter Family hover about uneasily in the mix here, offering shards of old harmonies and broken notes in the title track, "Anchored in Love," "Keep on the Sunny Side," "Road to Kaintuck," "Kneeling Drunkard's Plea," and especially "Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone," where the truth strikes a little too close to home. There are a few spoken word intros here (and some historically recorded ones) that are both poignant and humorous — check out June's observations of actor Lee Marvin on her intro to her song "Big Yellow Peaches." As the family gathers round one last time, the entire history of the country music tradition comes through and pours down around the listener, cracking and breaking and yet more musical than ever. This is the music of the folk as A.P. wrote it. And as such, it is both a credible historical document and, more importantly, the last will and testament of a legend who went back to her beginnings as a way of understanding the continuity of family and song in the present. Wildwood Flower is truly amazing, truly flawed, and heartbreakingly beautiful.

An intimate glimpse into a human's heart and soul

If you only end up getting a track or two, make sure you give Tracks 2 (Keep on the Sunny Side), Track 11 (Will you Miss Me When I'm Gone?), Track 13 (Wildwood Flower) ... the power and the beauty of these resonate in such an almost indescriabable way. You can mix these into almost any set of songs, across genres and continents. Like her song Ring of Fire, this music is about as intimate a glimpse into the heart and soul of a human one can get. Perhaps this is what made her and John so special ... their authenticity. June so reminds me of my own Mother. And like June, my Mother, a simple country girl, left an unwritten legacy in the hearts of those who knew her that will last longer than any politician's speech written more for history books than for people to hear. I can only imagine the magic that must have been in the house while this record was made. This recording is my direct connection to June and to a piece of America that is an ember of what it was ... perhaps it's music like this, that might keep that fire alive.

I'm A WIldwood Gal

What an interesting album. It is definatly worth buying at least a few of the tracks, and is overall very enjoyable although I must say much of the vocals are very rough. I myself listen to a lot of June Carter's music so I thought this was a good album. If you aren't farmiliar with her, start out with something along the lines of "16 Biggest Hits" or "Keep On The Sunny Side" which are also pretty good albums. Some of this music is an aquired taste but one that should be tried. I think if you're looking for pleasant, rather old-fashioned, good country music this is an album for you. My personal favorites are "Church In The Wildwood", "Keep On The Sunny Side", "Anchored In Love", (although she doesn't sing on this cut), and "Wildwood Flower". It's interesting to hear her singing that song on this album and at the Louisiana Hayride. Hope that helps, y'all. Oh and by the way, even people my age listen to this stuff. I'm 16.

If you're an up and coming musician or well established this is the foundation you want to have.

Anyone interested in any kind of music will be pleased to have such a wonderful set of recordings. From the sheer pureness of the vocals or the playfull banter that is shared between tracks with loved ones to the personal memories of the introductions by June this is brilliant. This is Legend!
