Truth
The first time I heard "Carlene" I was not prepared to spend 45 minutes listening to it over and over; the deep throaty singing of Robert Earl Reed, scratchy with emotion stretching out the simple true words of a people and a place I could imagine in my mind. It's another time; a quiet desperation with undertones of reserved anger, I loved the phrasing, the restraint, the moans and the eye to eye recognition and acknowledgment I felt song after song. It takes a true purist and a bottle of courage to present stripped down honest music in a day when crowds are demanding 'more, more, more'. I have never met Mr. Reed personally, but I know this: his eyes will not leave mine the first time I shake his hand. He is a proud man despite the misfortune he has lived and sings about. And when I want the truth, it's his music I reach for.
