MILEY CYRUS GETS SOUFUL RESPECT WITH DYLAN/BILLY RAY SHOULD TAP RICK RUBIN TO PRODUCE-BY JOHN EMMS

 

If you have not heard Miley Cyrus’ soulful country version of Bob Dylan’s Your Going To Make Me Lonesome When You Go, your misssing out big time.

The song is available on Chimes of Freedom

the Amnesty International fundraising cd.

Sounding like a cross between a young Lucinda Williams and with a hint of early Dolly Partons’s  high register Cyrus transforms the track into one of the best Dylan covers on the disc.

Cyrus has said she wants to concentrate on her music in 2012 and if this is any indication watch out. Bravo Miley.

If that was not enough you may have missed some of her father’s nuggets on his Back To Tennesse cd in 2009. The album sold really bad and was over produced.

But I’m saying there is light at the end of the tunnel for Billy Ray just on the strength of a few killer tracks.

Love Is a Lesson is a grungy stomper that Billy Ray just sings his butt off on.

It’s personal and he nails it with a searing guitar solo by Tom Bukovac 

On Somebody Said A Prayer, you could hear this track possibly pared down to  acoustic guitars or a small Ryan Adams combo and Cyrus could wail out the lyric.

When I hear Cyrus I hear a Rick Rubin makeover in the vein of Ryan Adams and it could be a career changing situation for Billy Ray.

 

Next up look for my blu-ray review of Carlos Santana and his band Greatest Hits Live From Montreux 2011
