 Notes & Reviews
 
2014 collection. In 2012, COUNTRY FUNK 1969-75 gathered together songs from a genre with no name. It's a genre created not from geography or shared ideology but a term applied retrospectively based solely on the feel of the songs: hip-swinging rhythms with bourbon on the breath. Light in the Attic has followed up that first 16-track disc with a second volume, COUNTRY FUNK VOLUME II: 1967-74, and a new set of loose-talking, lap steel-twanging tracks. On this volume you'll find household names like Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, Kenny Rogers, Jackie DeShannon, JJ Cale, Bobby Darin and Dolly Parton. You'll also find obscure artists like Bill Wilson, whose lost album was produced by the feted Dylan producer Bob Johnston, and Thomas Jefferson Kaye, noted producer of Gene Clark's opus No Other. Gene Clark's here too, as half of Dillard & Clark, wringing raw emotion from the Beatles' 'Don't Let Me Down'.
