"Nice review.  Willie is one of those artists where you have to decide which albums are worth it.  He's just so prolific, I couldn't afford to get all his albums.  So, I usually ignore the ones that look like they have a lot…"

Willie Nelson - Band Of Brothers (Album Review)

Does anybody know how many albums Willie Nelson has put out? I can think of three that have come through my mailbox in the last year alone, and if I went down into the basement to look, I don't have a clue how many I would come back upstairs with. What I do know is that there isn't a single one that doesn't have at least a few good songs on it, and there are dozens that I have listened to all the way through more times than I can count. His whole career has been a testament to the power of…See More

Hi Doug

 

      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.

 

      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at shatchsurvey1@yahoo.co.uk

 

Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,

Steve

 

 

 

My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.

 

Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.

 

            The track: http://soundcloud.com/stevehatch

 

1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?

 

2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

Hey Doug thanks for being a friend. I'm a Touring Independent Austin Texas Outlaw Honkytonker that needs your support! I'm always looking for new places to play so please let me know if you know of any. I have a Critically Acclaimed CD "The Leaving Side Of Gone" available at www.cdbaby.com/cd/peeweemoore and my next tour kicks off February 2nd and hits locations in TX, NM, AZ, CA, NV. Be sure to spread the word if you know anybody in those states. My official website is www.peeweemoore.com I hope to see you around!

"If I were to trace the genealogy of the country music Outlaw, it would start with Bobby Bare, roll through Willie & Waylon and that whole gang, follow Cash through the late 90′s, and end up in the country music underground with people like Peewee Moore as possibly the perfect example of the Outlaw lineage in the present day"

Hi Doug!!!It's moi. I think of you sometimes and then there you are on this seemingly obscure website I don't even know how I got to it. Maybe it's not obscure...maybe just I am. I'm living in Maine teaching college, kayaking the rivers, living in damn paradise.
Studying Chinese sumi-e, still looking to the east for inspiration. My kids all grown up, an opera singer. Lives not too far away down in Boston. I'm a grateful soul. Glad to know you're still kickin'
