Blackjack David is the sixth album by American artist Dave Alvin, released in 1998. He also knows how to make rootlessness historical.

Singer-songwriter Dave Alvin was a founding member of the Blasters, a Los Angeles band that took the energetic bop of rockabilly and infused it with punk rock's aggressive attitude. When I picked up Alvin's latest solo album Blackjack David, I expected Blasters-style slash-and-burn rock 'n' roll. Well, this album is far from the musical firestorm of Alvin's earlier group. It's something even better. Blackjack David is more like a smoldering ember that quietly burns its way into your soul. The title song sets the album's tone.

Blackjack David Lyrics. Traditional, Arranged by Dave Alvin (Blue Horn Toad Music, BMI, Administered by Bug Music). Blackjack David came a-ridin' through the wood Singin' so loud and merry His voice was a-ringin' through the green, green fields And he spied a fair-haired maiden Spied a fair-haired maiden. Listen here lass my name is Jack And I come from afar Lookin' for a fair-haired lass like you Won't you come and be my bride Come and be my bride?" "Now would you forsake your husband, dear Would you forsake your baby Would you forsake your fine, fine.

A longstanding monumental force in Los Angeles and California music, Alvin is essentially a blues player who writes and performs what he terms "American folk music. From Celtic and British folk tunes to early rock & roll, from classic blues and country & western to the Bakersfield sound, Alvin knows his stuff. With Alvin at peace with his creative direction, Blackjack David picks up where King of California left off in 1994. More electric, Blackjack David almost rocks in places, as on "Abilene" and "New Highway. It ambles along nicely in other spots, too. The title cut, a traditional tune hundreds of years old, is given new life under the deft Alvin touch and a new arrangement.
