All the recent talk here on the site about the Wanda Jackson/Jack White collaboration has got me wondering which collaborations you would like to see, whether as a backing band, a producer, or both?


Two I thought of off the top of my head were Al Green with the North Mississippi Allstars and Jerry Lee Lewis produced by Nick Curran.

And Jack Clement may be Hank Jr.'s only hope for relevance at this point.
I would love to hear Springsteen do an album with Rick Rubin , that Nebraska style but Country(ish) songs .

That's really interesting. I've always thought Bruce was more of a T-Bone guy, but either one works for me.


Speaking of that, I just read that after his recent album with Gregg Allman, T-Bone is now on board for the next Allman Brothers record.


Which reminds me: Jessi Colter had a VERY interesting producer on board for her next album. I suspect it will receive mixed reviews much like the Wanda Jackson/Jack White album, but it will be interesting nevertheless.

Neil Young with Nils Lofgren (acoustic- new material or covering Time Fades Away/On The Beach songs)

Wow The Brothers and T-Bone, that's exciting news!
well like Joe Jackson and Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon and Steve Van Zandt, Narada Michael Warren and Keith Le Blanc and goes by

First, I agree on the Neil Young/Nils Lofgren suggestion ... lots of great potential there.

Now, this one is outa left field. I admit to really liking Taylor Hicks. He seems to be getting the "backhand" from American Idol but I truly liked his style and his music. (I've got a copy of a pre-Idol CD which is great!). I thought his "post Idol win" release should have been produced by someone like Jim Dickenson, another great southern musician/producer. But that didn't happen and unfortunely, Jim is no longer with us. His sons from North Mississippi AllStars might be a good choice. Or Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers) ... or even Ry Cooder. I think Taylor could give us a kick-ass album of southern soul/blues/rock, if he only had the right people around him. 

I hate to be like the guy who unfairly judges Ricky Nelson because he was on a TV show, but at this point I can't get past the "American Idol" thing. Give me a few years and I may be able to listen to it, though.

Acoustic Hot Tuna produced by T Bone Burnett
Ethan Johns producing Country Joe McDonald. Or Dave Cobb producing ZZ Top.

Isn't Rick Rubin working with ZZ Top on a forthcoming album?


Edited to add:


Really look forward to this one.

Great call on the Nick Curran and Jerry Lee Lewis - somebody should make that happen...


I'd like to see Sierra Hull and Alison Krauss do an album together.

Springsteen should do a CD of Otis Gibbs covers.

I'd love to see Taylor Swift backed by the Robbie Fulks band - including Mr Fulks himself.

I'd like to see a collaboration between Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle - I know they've jammed on stage a few times - they need to make it more formal.

The Red Stick Ramblers need to team up with Redd Volkaert...
