Favorite 2012 releases this week:
Great albums of the past recently “discovered”:
I saw these guys in the Spring in NC before they came out with their debut cd, and they were awesome. Just saw them mentioned on another post and found them on CD Baby here http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/twelvegaugepersuaders Just as good as I remembered. Maybe better. Albums called Crumble. Very live feel. Great songwriting. Great guitar. The real deal.
Ry Cooder - "Election Special"
Another vote for Election Special , what a great album !
I'm in on Election Special too!
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...
