Elizabeth Cook "Welder" (31 Tigers 2010)

Elizabeth Cook’s arrived at Americana Central Station steaming in with Don Was, Buddy Miller, Dwight Yoakam, Rodney Crowell and Tim Carroll on-board, Welder is without doubt her best album to date, bringing together a wonderful mix of songs, funny, heart breaking, personal, country, rock n roll, acoustic and electric, the songs include Cook originals, a pair from husband Tim Carroll, one written by her mother Joyce – I’m Beginning to Forget and a pair of covers, Frankie Millers Blackland Farmer and Hem’s Not California the album strikes the arc and throws out plenty of sparks.

With the albums title taken from her fathers trade, dedicated to Cook’s mother Joyce and including the track Heroin Addict Sister that Cook declined to elaborate on during a recent NPR interview simply stating “I’m very generous with details and with lyrics — and that’s all I have to say about it at this time” this is a deeply personal affair at times, but there really is something for everyone to be found on this recording – essential listening.
