"I've been a Richard Thompson fan since the early '80s. I lived in England for a couple of years, heard his music and was amazed. I've been following him since. I even got a chance to see him live in my native Seattle about 20 years…"
"I just picked up "Country Funk 1969-1975" from Light in the Attic Records. Truly great album. Here's the song list:
1. Dale Hawkins - L.A. Memphis Tyler Texas
2. John Randolph Marr - Hello LA, Bye Bye Birmingham
3. Johnny Adams -…"
"I'm fascinated by the guitars in "Raging Eyes." I see a Danelectro bass and a National Newport for the lead guitar. Since this is 1983, they clearly aren't reissues but the real things. But what is Nick playing? It has a…"
"This has happened to me more times than I care to mention. I'd buy an album, discover there are only a couple songs I liked (or even discover I hated the entire album), but on subsequent relistens ("Was it really that bad?") I'd…"
"Looks like I'm going to answer my own question.

"I've been listening to Danny O'Keefe's "O'Keefe" for a few days now. "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues" is such an amazing song, but there are plenty of other great gems in here, too. Well worth it if…"

1. The Carter Family - "No Depression in Heaven"
2. Blind Willie Johnson - "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was the Ground"
3. Ryan Adams -…"
"I especially like your choice of Bruce Cockburn for the Canadians. I've been listening to him for over 30 years now. His songwriting, like his guitar playing, has extraordinary depth and he's always ready to surprise you with his…"
"I know exactly what you mean about singing along to his songs. They're surprisingly catchy and hook-laden, but still with plenty of depth and substance. It's a wonder he's not more successful.
As for my singing voice, well, if you…"
"I was aware of Toad back in the day. I owned a few of their albums and even saw them live in a small club in Portland around 1994 or so. "Walk On The Water" is still a gorgeous song, a rare waltz from a rock band.
I haven't kept up…"
"It's not Americana, but I've been listening to Gypsy Jazz all this week, a 4-CD set from Proper Records. It's mostly French jazz artists from the 1920s to 1940s, and it's fantastic. If you love Django Reinhardt, you'll love…"
