I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of research done before each project was finalized. Tons, I would assume. Not quite as much on their latest, America, Illinoisbut that does not detract from the album itself. This one is a bit more personal, a bit more modern. This one does not delve into the past except the one all of us in the States share— the history which made us who and what we are. The day the world really changed, and Salt King - Stace England And The Salt Kings - Salt Sex Slaves in our consciousness but in reality.
The day the music died, no less. It is a different approach for England, but he more than makes up for it with insightful and well-written songs. Indeed, there is a flow to this album which almost shoves the history-as-it-happens aspect aside. When I did, I realized that it was not anything Foster had even remotely dreamed of. In song, of course. What follows shows the rending of the fabric of the country and and the hope as it begins to heal. Listen to the songs in sequence and the journey becomes obvious.

England and his new band, The Salt Kings, continue his storytelling mastery with another slice of unknown US history on Salt Salt King - Stace England And The Salt Kings - Salt Sex Slaves Slaves, weaving tales of brutal salt production, kidnapped free blacks, ghosts, slave breeding and murder in a supposed Free State, the Land of Lincoln, into a volatile, provocative Exile On Main St.
On my first listening, the emotion and poignancy of these songs hit me hard. This is a story of one of the worst periods in American history, that of slavery, and so few happy endings come out of that period that one would have to look hard to find them. England doesn't bother because his point is not happy endings that came out of slavery, his point was that there were people in America and a time in America when atrocity was the norm, and ignorance was the justification for it.
Not only that, but We Je Die Bass - Skudero - The Killer Album was no secret. Even the government participated in it. England holds up the legend of the Salt King like Sam Shepard's buried child, a rotten corpse pulled from the ground to reveal true horrors of slavery, heart-rending of lovers torn apart by capture and enslavement, the heinous gloating of men who kidnap a beautiful young woman and return her to slavery, a dastardly pastime of the Salt King.
