Willard Grant Meets Johnny Cash Part 2

You may recall that a year ago the UK’s Mojo magazine featured a Johnny Cash tribute CD on which the Willard Grant Conspiracy contributed a track. Well, now WGC’s Robert Fisher (whose vocal timbre has often been compared to Cash’s) is featured on a record entitled Elegy for Johnny Cash, released by one Mr. Jackie Leven on Cooking Vinyl. Robert sings one song on the album and offers some vocal support to another.

Jackie is a remarkable songwriter from Scotland’s Kingdom of Fife. His life is worth at least one book and a few broadsides to cover all of his adventures. Robert and Jackie met at the Canterbury Fayre Festival in 2002 and formed a friendship while touring together in 2003. The song “Law of Tides” was recorded during a brief pre-tour session in Wales amidst the mists and mountains.
