June 28 in music history

Bruce Springsteen played a legendary gig  at San Siro , Milan,  Italy in 2003 – 11 years ago (read more)

Remarkable show played in remarkable weather. The rain begins to pours down during the full band “The River” and continues for several songs, punctuated with incredible thunder and lightning. A unique “Follow That Dream”. Many other highlights – an Italian story in “Growin’ Up”, the rain sheeting down in “Waitin’ On A Sunny Day”, “The River” and an impromptu “Who’ll Stop The Rain”.

The Harrow & the Harvest is stunning for its intimacy, its lack of studio artifice, its warmth and its timeless, if hard won, songcraft.

The Harrow & The Harvest is simply one of the richest, most expansive roots albums to be released in some time.

The Harrow & The Harvest is a 2011 album released by American musician Gillian Welch. It was Welch’s first album in eight years and was released on June 28, 2011.

The eight years since the release of 2003’s Soul Journey marked the longest period of time between album releases for Welch. In explaining the relatively long recording absence, Welch said, “The sad truth is we never liked anything enough to put it out, which is not a pleasant place to be.” She added, “over the course of that time that we were quiet we probably had enough songs to put out two or three records. Actually we made a few tentative steps at trying to record, but inevitably the heart would go out of it when we realised that we simply didn’t like the material enough to go on with it.” Welch frequently performed the song “The Way It Will Be” in years prior to the release of the album. Welch explains that this tense time period inspired the album title: “Our songcraft slipped and I really don’t know why. It’s not uncommon. It’s something that happens to writers. It’s the deepest frustration we have come through, hence the album title.” The writing process involved “this endless back and forth between the two of us,” Welch said, stating that “It’s our most intertwined, co-authored, jointly-composed album.”

Today: Bobby Bare Jr. is 46

From Wikipedia:

Bobby Bare, Jr. (born June 28, 1966) is an American musician who has recorded several solo albums, along with two albums with his band, Bare, Jr.

From Allmusic:

Nominated for a Grammy at age five for doing a duo with his renowned country music dad, Bobby Bare, Jr., also managed to sing on the Ryman Auditorium stage on its closing night. Although his dad is remembered for contemporary country songs like “500 Miles Away from Home” and “Houston,” Bare, Jr. took off in a different direction, reflected in the name of his CD Young Criminals’ Starvation League, released in 2002 by Bloodshot. While the CD picks up the flavor of early-’70s classic country with Nashville soul, it also testifies to an angry and sad type of humor. An oddball combination of post-punk and psychedelic melancholy, the CD reflects Bare, Jr.’s skill and depth as a musical artist who doesn’t have to slouch in his father’s shadow.

During the late ’90s, Bare, Jr. put together his own indie rock band, appropriately called Bare Jr., with Keith Brogdon (drums), Tracy Hackney (dulcimer, harmonies), and Dean Tomasek (bass). The band put out two CDs, Boo-Tay and Brainwasher, that twist the classic Nashville sounds in a joyous, delightful, devious, self-loathing way. In August 2003, Bare, Jr. performed at Bumbershoot 2003 in Seattle, and in October 2003, Bloodshot released OK – I’m Sorry… for Bare, Jr. as an individual, not as a band.
