Guitar man and singer/songwriteråÊDavid Rawlings leaves the Machine moniker behind for his third album, Poor Davids Almanack, a wry mixture of acoustic and electric performances rich in ageless American vernacular. Gloriously captured on analog tape by studio wizards Ken Scott and Matt Andrews, the ten new songs took shape in a rollicking weeklong session at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee where Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith to produce an album for all seasons.åÊDespite his obvious debts to Guthrie and Bob Dylan, Rawlings is no protest singer. His truest subject is not really the past‰ÛÓor, notåÊmerelyåÊthe past. Rather, it‰۪s the joy to be found in old songs, in old instruments, in old sounds, in old perspectives. Nearly every tune onåÊPoor David‰۪s AlmanackåÊhas roots in something or someone specific. ‰ÛÏCome on Over My House‰۝ is surely meant to echo Robert Johnson‰۪s invitation in ‰ÛÏCome on in My Kitchen,‰۝ recorded 80 years ago.åÊ
