Anchors & Anvils (2007)

Amy LaVere


Amy LaVere’s dark and sexy second CD, was recorded in the winter of 2007 and was produced by Jim Dickinson. Dickinson whose celebrated work as a musician includes classic records with Ry Cooder, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones (Sticky Fingers) and Bob Dylan captured Amy and band at his Zebra Ranch recording barn/art project in rural Mississippi. “As a producer, you take the artist out to the edge of the cliff, where they have to learn to trust you,” Dickinson explains. “And of course, you push ‘em off. A lot of them fall. But Amy has the wings to fly. In fact, I think it’s one of the best records I’ve ever made.”
