It's been six years since folk singer and songwriter Patty Griffin last released an album of mostly original material. She returns with a wallop on American Kid.

Most of the 12 songs on the album are about her father, a World War II veteran who returned home to live for a time in a Trappist monastery before becoming a high school science teacher and raising seven children.

"The bulk of the record was written at a time where I knew my father was passing away," Griffin says in a video explaining the album.

She recorded American Kid in Memphis with Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars. She got to know the brothers when their group opened some shows while Griffin was touring as part of Band of Joy with Robert Plant, who contributed vocals to three songs: "Ohio," "Faithful Son" and "Highway Song."

"Robert and I started working on things together, and coming up with things on stage," Griffin says.

I had listened to this album many times streaming and was surprised to see it was still available on vinyl. Dead quiet and excellent SQ. Much nicer than digital.
