The 50 Best Alt-Country albums according to Paste Magazine

Paste Magazine published a list of their 50 best alt-country albums of all time. In the list you will find 1 of Joe Henry's own albums, but also the Carolina Chocolate Drops which he produced.

nr 30 : Carolina Chocolate Drops : Genuine Negro Jig
What they’ve also done is dust off a musical form seen today as either a novelty or the exclusive provenance of ethnomusicologists. To paraphrase Rakim’s immortal words, these Drops ain’t no joke

nr 27 : Joe Henry : Kindness of the world
Kindness evidenced Henry as one of the most skillful and honest lyricists in popular music. His next release, Trampoline, commenced a string of sonic experiments that—combined with lyrical prowess that has only grown—have established him as one of most interesting and vital singer-songwriters working today. Though he would refuse to be constrained by the genre, Henry’s collaboration with the Jayhawks serves as an exemplar of the then-nascent genre.
