Teddy Thompson (the son of folk-rock icons Richard and Linda Thompson) had released two largely overlooked albums of smart, moody pop by the time of 2007's UP FRONT AND DOWN LOW. Unlike Thompson's previous albums, which featured all original material, UP FRONT consists of covers of classic country songs.

To his credit, Thompson doesn't attempt to inhabit the down-home roots to which these tunes are tethered. Instead, he maintains his own cool, folky vocal style and gives the songs new life via sharp, imaginative arrangements. In this way, Ernest Tubb's "Walking the Floor Over You" and George Jones's "She Still Thinks I Care" are outfitted afresh in a way that maintains the original beauty of the songs without straining to keep them overtly "country." Thompson throws in a piece of his own ("Down Low"), and invites a battery of guests stars (including Marc Ribot, Iris Dement, and his father, Richard), which adds variety and polish to this fine album.
