Tom Russell is a master storyteller and Mesabi, his new release for Shout! Factory , corrals some of the acclaimed singer-songwriter¹s most compelling tales to date. A thread runs through its songs, a zigzagging but determinedly solid line that connects the perilous bordertown of Juarez, Mexico to the real and faux glitz of L.A. and the bleak iron range of Minnesota‹the Mesabi of the album¹s title. The broad landscapes created by Tom Russell for Mesabi are inhabited by characters we all know‹Bob Dylan, James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor‹and some we may not: the now-obscure, once well-known singer Cliff ³Ukulele Ike² Edwards, the tragic Disney child star Bobby Driscoll and the character actor Sterling Hayden. It¹s a logical progression from Russell¹s last album, 2009¹s Blood and Candle Smoke, yet it¹s like no other album Russell has made in his nearly four decades as a recording artist.
