Dona Got A Ramblin' Mind (2006)

On this album, the songs touch on ancient blues and country, but to align what the CCD do with either of those branches would be an error. Songs like “Ol’ Corn Likker” and “Black-Eyed Daisy” evoke a time and place far removed not only from the present but from contemporary notions of what those genres signify. When the trio plays “Dixie,” you’re listening not to a patriotic rebel anthem but a yearning, mournful moan. And the purity of Giddens’ solo a cappella vocal on “Little Margaret” belongs to an era when music was not something to be sold but something from the soul.
