who'd have thunk. . .

I originally signed up here to try & win some John Prine tix, turns out this is cool spot. Always had a hard time explaining what kind of music I liked and played, still not sure , but "roots" seems pretty close. So here I am posting my tunes on . . . who'd have thunk. . .

Amy Farris RIP

This isn't a blog entry, and I'm not clever enough to have the linkage.

Mark Rubin reported on Facebook that Kelly Willis reported on that Amy Farris had passed away in Los Angels.

That's all I've got.

I didn't know Amy, didn't even write about her, probably didn't even assign anybody else to do so.

But it still stuns me to read such things. To confront such things.

I suppose it is a consequence of having lived 50 years that… Continue

Darkest before dawn...checking in on the latest music biz stats with some interesting thoughts from Billy Bragg

For the past few weeks I've been spending a good deal of time considering the question of, well...what's next? Not for myself personally mind you, but more global issues as it relates to the presentation and consumption of music. While I'm still not quite ready to drag out the crystal ball, as part of my research I've been going through some statistics this morning and catching up on recent music industry news.

Here in no particular order are a few bits of news, numbers and… Continue

AmericanaUK review "WALK on water"

Red Rooster "Walk" (Wondermore Records, 2009)

Walk with Red Rooster is more than a stroll

New York-based Red Rooster are the basically the duo Jay Erickson (lead vocals) and Nat Zikha (lead guitar) who have been playing together for many years. Jay & Nat formed Red Rooster in NY ten years ago and on this record they have brought together a diverse group of musicians and instruments to compliment some… Continue

James Hand - "Don't Want Me Too"

1. Let me tell you what I appreciate about James Hand: there is not a single phony thing about him. Not that you needed me to tell you that, with Kristofferson saying that "he believes" James Hand and Willie calling him "the real deal". Despite such accolades, Hand has flown under the radar for most of…

A singularly unimportant garden recap

Mamaw is, I think, 88, and we have worked her too hard this last little while. See, the orchard we began putting in a few years back is still too young to begin bearing, and, what with a late local frost, we didn't even get any blueberries this summer. But the one pear tree Dan & Marge put in when they built their house in the woods, back when Susan was in middle school, still sometimes bears. Last year the pears played host to sand hornets, and we got nothing.

This year, we got… Continue

"Untitled" - Lyrics


© Jackson Rodgers

Well, hello, my son, how's pre-life treating you?

You'd best beg for a pardon, for I've been programmed to

Drag you out of that bliss of not knowing the difference

And force upon you all the joy in my selective remembrance

You'd live in the land of the god-fearin' brave

Who ain't scared of nothin', 'cept the end bein' the grave

And four-letter words and the dissent their lines were torn with

Newfangled… Continue

"The Blood Left on the Door" - Lyrics

The Blood Left on the Door

© Jackson Rodgers and Jesse Bellamy

You found her makin' haste

In a world full of slow pain

The stars upon her face

Were fadin' from tear stains

You showed her to a place

Of hope she had longed for

The dream you gave to chase

Held the comforts of lore


You took her to the darkest room in her house

And just when she thought it was safe to look

You turned the darkness… Continue

"Satisfy the Need" - Lyrics

Satisfy the Need

© Jackson Rodgers

Long nights are lonely and full of pain

But the reason can't be found

Long nights are lonely, but days are empty

So you wake when the sun's goin' down

You look for someone who'll love you for who you are

But you'll take the prettiest one you see

You'll love her intensely and miss her immensely

When she finds out how depressing you can be


You could just end it all, but you'd… Continue

"The Mid-tempo Ballad of Jimmie Rodgers" - Lyrics

The Mid-tempo Ballad of Jimmie Rodgers

© Jackson Rodgers

Well, my name is Jimmie Rodgers

And I'm 'least half the country singer that he was

I'm a poor boy who asks questions

Lemme tell you, that can often cause a fuss

I've been told that I've had choices

Upon askin' many a-rich man proper

But I can't remember choosin'

To be the twelfth kid of a lifelong sharecropper

I grew up in a wooden cave, we were virtually white… Continue

Elliott Murphy’s Aquashow (1973) and Alive in Paris (2009)

Some people call them Desert Island Discs. I call them Albums without Which My Life Just Wouldn’t Be Quite What It Is. Not as catchy, but what can you do? Anyway, Elliott Murphy’s debut, Aquashow, has always been high on my list of Albums Without Which Etc. I got a prerelease copy of it in the mail from Polydor Records in 1973, loved it the first time I heard it, interviewed Elliott about it for an article and have been listening to it ever since.

And now, here he is at age… Continue

It is what it is

It Is What It Is or Making a Record for under $100

I recently went to Nashville and made me a record. I can now tell all of my friends that I am a Nashville Recording Artist. I'm a big deal. Y'all should all line up to kiss my ass.

Here is how it all happened.

I was going to be in Nashville and I wanted to do a little picking with my old friend Donnie Winters. The last time I talked to him he told me that he had a little pro tools rig at the house that he would… Continue

My First Release on a Gen-u-wine Record Label

From the very first moment I saw Elvis Presley perform on the Ed Sullivan Show, I thought that making a record would absolutely be the very best, highest, and most illustrious achievement known to humanity. I was only four years old at the time, and when I reached the age of 17, when my band came in second, at our high school talent contest, and with just me, by myself, as a solo act singing "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", coming in third, I honestly thought I had it made. I actually won $30.00 in cash,… Continue

'Introducing Townes Van Zandt Via The Great Unknown'

‘Introducing Townes Van Zandt Via The Great Unknown’ is an album, which pretty much does what it says on the tin: It introduces one of the greatest songwriters/singers ever, via 19 artists, who though they happen to be amazing, float miles away from the mainstream.

On the not-so-unknown end of the Unknown scale, this album features:

J. Tillman (Fleet Foxes) (US)

Great Lake Swimmers (CAN)

Stephen Duffy & The Lilac Time (UK)

Jad Fair (US)

and so… Continue
