The tears of a woman are hidden within
As she moves from one to the next, her spirit grows thin
And when she falls in love with one, it's hard but it's true
But it's oh so much harder when that man is you

I got lost on the river, but I got found
I got lost on the river, but I didn't drown

One stormy day I was out at sea
The waves they rolled and tumbled over me
I spied dry land and a tall pale tree
I knew that soon that's where I'd like to be

My sweetheart left me for another one
And now I wait for the next rising sun

I got lost on the river, but I got found
I got lost on the river, but I didn't drown
I got lost on the river, but I didn't go down
I got lost on the river, but I got found

I saw her at The Grand Ol Opry in Nashville 2 years ago. She walked out barefoot, long hair, simple dress with her acoustic guitar. She started to sing and I got chills. One of the more memorable performances I have ever had the honor of witnessing.
The next day we went to the Country Music Hall of fame and learned more about this country's music including rock and blues.
She is one of the best.
Dylan! Unbelievable talent!

Nice though the bridge movement is unnecessary and distracts as does the banks moving beyond the bridge

This probably sounds superb on a quality audio system. The blootoof speaker I have at work isn't doing it justice.
We need a single-ended tube amplifier and some high efficiency speaker pair.

Am I getting old, or is the term supergroup being over-used?
 
Have you heard of My Morning Jacket? Mumford and Sons? Dawes? Not exactly unknowns. I'll admit I'd never heard of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, but that's just one of many, many groups I would have never discovered without Radio Paradise. 
Rhiannon Giddens, need to hear more of her on RP. Moon meets the sun....

Why do you always play this song
 

Cause we asked for it.
"Jim James, Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith, and Rhiannon Giddens."

Y'know, if these folks stick with it, they could really go places...  Wow.
c.
God, those backing vocals are stunning.
sounds like Patty Smith
This song is not for me. 
Why do you always play this song
This answers the question "listen to just one beautiful song"
the ooh-ing is like something out of the movie The Ten Commandments
makes me think of 1950's bible epics
so I just cant take this song seriously
I keep seeing Moses wooing Cleopatra with slaves fanning them, playing harps, and oohing

7 -> 3  + Skip
BEAUTIFUL!
Thought is was London Grammar at a first voice sounds..


I absolutely love the idea of this entire album.What T Bone Burnett did with these lost lyrics and the artists who came together to make the music to those lyrics is astounding.

Don't worry Timmus, the ghosts are hiding in the new basement, just behind the tapes. The old basement was just getting too scary after #19 got lost on the river that flows through it.
I gave this a 10 because it came after the horrid Mr. Jones by Counting Crows, and it stopped the bleeding from my ears.

Ding! - exactly
8 -> 7  
A great song, beautifully sung by Rhiannon Giddens with so much soul! The album has some great songs on it generally, but this is my favourite.
sounds like the song playing in Emily Dickinson College in Animal House
yes
MArtina loves it! :)
She's got one of those kind of voices that is instantly recognizeable and you can tell that she really feels the soul in the song.  Check her out on any of the Carolina Chocolate Drop albums.  Definitely memorable and a great song.
{#Yes}
I Like!
Beautiful!       go to RhiannonGiddens.com   ; )


Gorgeous
There is only one set of basement tapes—old or new.
This is a 10 for me, great ambiance, everything is there...

Damn' godlike singing makes my cry {#Frustrated}
this played right after Johnny Cash's Hurt! Stunning!

Dang but Giddens can seriously bring it. What a great tune.
This is a great album. Lots of quality songs and a firm favourite on the playlist. Highly recommended. More tunes played from it on RP would be appreciated. 
 
Hard for me to focus when this song comes on. I find it quite beautiful and entrancing. 

I like it, but I have to be in the right mood to appreciate it.
Golden Appeal.
Somebody get me a morphine needle. I need to cheer up.
yeah, it's getting a little old and churchy sounding.
"Plays in last 30 days: 7"

Somehow, I find that hard to believe.  Isn't it more like... 207?
 
Oh man this one hit me deep.  I am so glad I found this radio station.
Nice song. Nicer if it hadn't been played just about every day in the past week.

But right on all other counts.  She is great!

LOL. It's just music. It'll pass.

Home girl ain't no joke. So proud of her. What a voice, literally and figuratively...
Just beautiful!
I like this and like whole album.....it's great...especiallt like kansas city

Not sure why but the more I hear this the more I like it. So simple, yet so powerful. Terrific emotional impact in such a low-key song.

...... Booring......... 

 
One listener's Ho-Hum is another's 'elegaic', and the dividing line is thin and flexible. In my current mood, this counts as elegaic gospel, though I could see how it could be tedious in another context. Ver' nahce, anyhoo - 7 from the chilled Nottingham jury.

that's not much play time, not sure what your problem is.

 
Simply and respectfully ask RP to take this tune out of rotation for a few years.  The song is like fingernails on a chalkboard. 
 
Gotta say with all the music that is to be heard it has been played a lot here. It is a good song but being overplayed by Bill IMO.

Good song. Good delivery.

Thanks for a very mellow Saturday night. I've been listening the last eight-nine hours.
 Just floating along the flow of the music.

She does have a lovely and powerful voice and she a very talented musician as well.
Jeez, this was played not even 12 hrs ago. Talk about heavy rotation. Great voice.
Beautiful!       go to RhiannonGiddens.com   ; )

One of the premium cable channels - HBO I think - did a terrific "documentary" of these folks and the recording session.  Included was some very interesting information; stuff that escaped me (I can't imagine why) for a few decades.
8 -> 7. Still like it but already feel like I'm hearing it too often. Laments don't stand up well to Heavy Rotation (IMO).

This caught my ear while programming at work. Who is this? I wondered. According to Amazon:

Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is a music event 47 years in the making. It's an historic album project from five of music's finest artists — Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) — in unique collaboration with a 26-year-old Bob Dylan. Produced by project creator T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in March, 2014 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where the artists and Burnett convened for two weeks to write and create music for a treasure trove of long-lost lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes. The collective completed and recorded dozens of songs, the first 20 of which appear on this deluxe edition. 
What an interesting concept. Can't go wrong with T Bone Burnett producing. Added to my Amazon shopping cart.

Thanks for the intro to this! 

 
Thank you for posting this! I was intrigued by this song and was going to go look up info on it myself - but you saved me the trouble. Good stuff! {#Wave} {#Music}
{#Sleep}
Album is AWESOME!!! Thank's Paradise!!!!
OMG this is so sad
Oh Bill... you sly devil, as I was listening to Snowden's Jig before this, I was thinking to myself how far Ms. Giddens has come.  The cuts I have heard from her solo album are also very nice.

This is wonderful ! 
That girl brings it. 
get the album, really fantastic.
Rhiannon voice is really great.... 
...reserve on the rating... but I do like her voice
