POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

July 26, 1998|Randy Lewis

*** Shaver, "Victory." New West. Billy Joe Shaver teams with his guitarist-mandolinist son Eddy for an outing that's largely about a man's search for heaven--from the religious concept to the kind found in a woman's embrace to the one in the parent-child relationship. Woody Guthrie's searching folk and Johnny Cash's latter-day spiritual restlessness echo through the elder Shaver's detail-rich writing and experience-soaked vocals. Shaver plays Saturday at Jacks Sugar Shack.
