Tom Rush, ‘Celebrates 50 Years of Music’

Live records can be hit-or-miss, but this one will endure just as Tom Rush has. Culled from his 50th anniversary at Symphony Hall last winter, it’s a fitting slice of Rush’s remarkable life, aided by folk all-stars David Bromberg, Buskin & Batteau, Jonathan Edwards, and Dom Flemons from the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Included is a DVD of the show, where you can see the breezy Rush ambling about in his white suit like an acoustic Mark Twain. The CD has four fewer songs than the DVD, but the essentials are here — from the table-setting “Hot Tonight” to crowd favorites “Drivin’ Wheel,” “Urge for Going,” and “No Regrets/Rockport Sunday.” Rush is singing with more soul as he ages, and his band fills in the gaps, including Bromberg on electric slide guitar and Robin Batteau on a sweet-soaring fiddle and mandolin. The CD booklet also has a page devoted to the New England Folk Music Archives founded by Betsy Siggins. A classy gesture. (Out Tuesday)
