RECENSIE
This album is a reimagining of Bobbie Gentry’s forgotten masterpiece and features an incredible cast list of guest vocalists including Norah Jones, Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) , Beth Orton, Lucinda Williams, Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Vashti Bunyan, Marissa Nadler, Susanne Sundfør, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), Phoebe Bridgers, Margo Price, Kaela Sinclair (M83) and Carice Van Houten.

‘Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited’ is Mercury Rev's committed and affectionate resurrection of an album that anticipated by three decades their own pivotal expedition through transcendental America, 1998's ‘Deserter's Songs’. From their recording lair in New York's Catskill Mountains, the founding core of Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper with Jesse Chandler (previously in the Texas group Midlake) honour Gentry's creative triumph with spacious invention and hallucinatory flair. And they are not alone. Gentry's stories and original resolve are brought to new vocal life and empowerment by a vocal cast of women from across modern rock and its alternative paths. Norway's Susanne Sundfør cuts through “Tobacco Road” with arctic-Nico poise as the Rev’s trademark technicolor orchestration sweeps us towards the penultimate poignant love lorn wash of Beth Orton’s “Courtyard” and into the melancholy mystery of “Ode to Billie Joe” from America’s other grand southern belle Lucinda Williams.

On the 1968 LP, Gentry opened with a call to jubilant order, “Okolona River Bottom Band,” like she was leading a barn-dance union of the Rolling Stones and Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five. Norah Jones takes that entrance here with her own sultry command, like Sarah Vaughan at the head of a slow-blooming choir. In “Sermon,” Margo Price sings like a survivor through Mercury Rev’s explosion of colour and groove: a specialty throughout the band’s history as recently as 2015’s ‘The Light in You’ going back through 1995’s ‘See You on the Other Side’.
Bobby Gentry is still very present in the changes.
