David Johansen is a 1978 album by the rock musician David Johansen and his first solo album following his tenure as lead singer of the New York Dolls. The album was released on Blue Sky Records, a sub-label of Columbia Records that was associated with Johnny and Edgar Winter. David Johansen also features fellow New York Doll guitarist Sylvain Sylvain, who was a member of the David Johansen Band at that time. Sylvain co-wrote four of the songs with Johansen
The Nashville sound originated during the mid 1950s as a subgenre of American country music, replacing the chart dominance of the rough honky tonk music which was most popular in the 1940s and 1950s with "smooth strings and choruses", "sophisticated background vocals" and "smooth tempos". It was an attempt "to revive country sales, which had been devastated by the rise of rock 'n' roll.
Two pioneer producers of the Nashville Sound were Chet Atkins and Owen Bradley. Honky-tonk lyrics were rife with typical working class problems like alcoholism, failed marriages, and adultery. Many Americans didn’t want to hear about these things, and could escape them with the Nashville Sound. Producers brought in heavy string sections and backing vocals to make songs more sophisticated.
The Nashville Sound is Jason Isbell’s sixth studio album, released in June of 2017. It’s the third record billed with his band, The 400 Unit, and the first since 2011’s Here We Rest. In those years between, Isbell’s commercial and critical profile grew considerably thanks to the success of his solo albums Southeastern (2013) and Something More Than Free (2015). Isbell explains in this interview with Rolling Stone how this album differs from those solo albums: If I could write rock & roll songs on purpose, I’d do it all the time. I think I’ve earned the right, because I think I have as much to do with the way Nashville music sounds now as any of the pop country acts do. I think Sturgill does too. I think Miranda Lambert rides that line.
The Nashville Sound is a fitting title for Jason Isbell’s newest album for a few reasons. The foremost, is that the title of the record can be taken literally. Jason and the 400 Unit made an unabashedly country record. On the other hand, the name, The Nashville Sound has an almost ironic connotation to it. If you listen to the lyrics of White Man’s World or Hope the High Road for more than a few seconds, you’ll hear Jason’s take on America’s current political climate. Despite this being Jason’s first album titled with the 400 unit since 2011’s Here We Rest, The Nashville Sound is a logical progression from Southeastern and Something More Than Free. While very few of his listeners know Isbell personally, these albums are all obviously strongly influenced by the stage of life that Jason is in. Southeastern was written during a relatively unstable point in Isbell’s life when he was dealing with a newfound sobriety.
Jason Isbell seems like the sort of person who looks you in the eye when he talks to you. In his songs, Isbell says exactly what he means. There’s no artifice in his lyrics - but that’s not to say those lyrics aren’t artful. They’re plenty artful. They’re tough and economical and full of empathy. But you always know exactly what he’s saying. There’s never any guesswork involved
