"I had my reservations due to her vapid Hollywood blond friend that sings on the album but the proof is in the listening. This is a remarkable album. My ongoing resolution is to be a lot less judgmental. Great review. "
"My top 10 have been fluid as to positions but here is how I see it today.
1) Richard Thompson - Electric
2) Holly Williams - The Highway
3) The Mavericks - In Time
4) The Head and the Heart - Let's Be Still
5) Jason Isbel - Southeastern
"I’ve met a few artists over the years and most have been very gracious, but I’ve never gone out of my way to do so. Besides the what would you say factor, if they are nasty it could put you off on their music. Imagine…"
"Matt writes - "Country music is supposed to be about authenticity." To that Matt, I would add an addendum - Hall of Fame's are about making money, which many times, but not always, has nothing to do with authenticity. I…"
"I've been listening to a lot of Lou this week, both the Velvets and solo. And while "New Sensations" isn't a groundbreaking tour de force, it's a great collection of songs and one my favorite albums from the 80's.…"
"The only problem with Moondance is side one is so spectacular - arguably the greatest album side of all time - that it obscures the tremendous songs on side two. If I had to pick one song, it would have to be Caravan. It's like a…"
"I've seen the Ramones a dozen times and they never played more than 35 minutes. The shows were perfect.
I saw the Dead once and they played for three hours. I couldn't stop checking my watch. (But it was a MONDAY…"
"And Cherry, Cherry....I'm a Believer....Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow....Sunday and Me...and Kentucky Woman. A magnificent early period till he went off the rails with his schmaltz.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your recent comments here on No Depression. It means a lot to the folks who blog and post other content here to know that it's being noticed and appreciated. Since the majority of content on this site is crowd-sourced, community involvement is what makes everything here on ND possible. So, thanks again for taking the time to post comments - we really appreciate it!
I had a radio show on crcfm in Castlebar, Ireland, for a couple of years after leaving the 100, ooo watt giant here in the South, but I was working full-time and it wore my ass out. I've been getting come-ons from a new station in the West of Ireland recently, and I may try it again.
I have never done anything that was closer to my heart than radio. I love it, love the invisible-ness of it, the voices, the music, and how they invade our hearts when we're alone.
ND is a great site and I've missed the chance to talk about my love of music and radio for a long time. Hope we meet someday. I live in the Florida Panhandle along the wild Gulf of Mexico. Maggie and I have a monthly gathering at our seven acre spread we call Maggie's Farm. It's walking distance from one of the most pristine and beautiful creeks in the South. People come from around the world to canoe/kayak/tube it. It's called Econfina Creek.
Good to spend time with you, and a pleasure to meet you on this august site. Here's hoping it's (paraphrasing Bogart in Casablanca) the beginning of a great friendship.
