Ry Cooder for president!
I never even liked him much before Pull Up Some Dust And Sit Down * (also a great album) , now i have to start working my way back. I'm getting I Flathead at the weekend.
*Apart from the Paris, Texas soundtrack , EVERYBODY loves that.
"To Terrapin" -Grateful DEad
Listening to Drive By Truckers last night after a tweet made by Mandy Moore to Jason Isbell. I'd checked out some of DBT before and have never been a fan only because they're heavier then I normally listen to. Decided to focus on the albums made when Jason Isbell was a member. Love "Danko/Manuel", "Outfit", and "TVA". Also: "When the Pin Hits the Shell".
Goddamn Lonely Love is by Jason and possibly their best song (apart from Cooley's , obviously !).
Hours we've spent on here , giving you recommendations and listening tips , and ONE LOUSY TWEET by someone you don't even know , sends you on a music hunt (shakes head ).
LOL - (small voice) sorry...
I forgot to mention Stina , you really should check out Jasons most recent album Here We Rest which is superb and his best solo effort so far. There was a very interesting blog on here as well about the artwork.
I like some of Jason's work with the 400 Unit alot. Just wish they'd do more slow songs. He's got an amazing voice for slower songs. Wish he'd do more with Amanda also (Codeine)
On the heels of the announcement that Graham Parker has recorded a new album with the Rumour for the first time in years, I put his 2007 release "Don't tell Columbus" back in my heavy rotation. I've never found any of his stuff to be disappointing, but this is his best album since "Squeezing Out Sparks".
