Listen to this show: | Add or read comments
|Artist||Track||Comments||Approx. start time|
|Big Guitars from Texas||Guitar Army||0:00:00 ()|
|Greenbriar Boys||Mississippi Sawyer||A little jarring for this early but I love these guys. Urban bluegrass turned a lot of us onto some great music. Just like the Yardbirds & Stones turned me on to blues, back in the 60s, these guys (& other urban bluegrass bands) got me into old timey & bluegrass. More coming.||0:02:47 ()|
|Michael Chapman||Thurston's House||From "Trainsong: Guitar Compositions 1967-2010" (Tompkins Square, 2011)||0:04:25 ()|
|John Miller||Lady Be Good||One of those songs I hear everywhere, many versions, many styles. This one took a while to catch on with me.||0:08:13 ()|
|Norman Blake||OBC #3||Both this and the previous song are from a nice Rounder guitar collection, from 1987. Norman Blake is one of the great pickers of our time.||0:09:47 ()|
|Glenn Jones||On the Massachusetts-Virginia Border||Don't know about this Jones but it's a burn, on Thrill Jockey: "Even to Win Is to Fail." No year available.||0:15:11 ()|
|Frank Fairfield||Haste to the Wedding/The Darling True Love||Another new Tompkins Square CD: "Out On the Open West." It's a cool instrumental until the singing starts-- not that the singing is bad!||0:18:21 ()|
|Greenbriar Boys||Darby Ram||In New Orleans, they do this as a brassy funky tune. Great song: John Herald singing lead. Hear that high lonesome yodeling sound!||0:22:40 ()|
|Woodstock Mountain Revue||Warm Rain||Written by John Herald, who does lead vocals. Harmony vocals & dobro from Cindy Cashdollar. This album, from 1981, also has Pat Alger, Happy & Artie Traum, Keith & Rooney. And Roly Salley.||0:31:18 ()|
|Demolition String Band||Wisteria||Straight outta Hoboken. From "Different Kinds of Love" on Breaking Records, 2007. On the hills of Jersey...City.||0:35:22 ()|
|Laura Cantrell||Making Believe||It's so much fun to play Laura's latest: "Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music." Go buy it. On Diesel Only.||0:38:21 ()|
|The Lonesome Strangers||Goodbye Lonesome, Hello Baby Doll||This is Randy Weeks et al, from their 1989 High Tone album. A Johnny Horton tune.||0:41:41 ()|
|Rosie Flores||Blue Highway||I found this one (and the one before it) on a Hightone Records Anthology that I bought for $2-- a double CD collection.||0:43:40 ()|
|Nick Lowe||Changing All Those Changes||The standout track on a pretty good album of Buddy Holly covers: "Rave On Buddy Holly" on Fantasy (2011).||0:46:59 ()|
|Blackie & the Rodeo Kings w/ Lucinda Williams||If I Can't Have You||I did a double-take when I saw this CD: duets with Lucinda, Rosanne Cash, Cassandra Wilson, Pam Tillis and other terrific female vocalists. Wow. The album is "Kings and Queens" (File Under Music, 2011)||0:48:46 ()|
|Blackie & the Rodeo Kings w/ Cassandra Wilson||Golden Sorrows||Let's do another!!||0:51:46 ()|
|Robert Plant & Alison Krauss||Killing the Blues||Written by Roly Salley, of Woodstock Mountain Review & lots more.||1:00:52 ()|
|Dillard & Clark||Out on the Side||This combo-- Gene Clark working with banjo whiz Doug Dillard-- produced two of the best albums of the 70s.||1:06:51 ()|
|Dillard & Clark||Train Leaves Here This Morning||This song co-written by Bernie Leadon, a founder of the Eagles. Clark, of course, was a founder of the Byrds. Nice, huh?!||1:10:44 ()|
|Gene Clark||Kansas City Southern||Solo Gene, from "Two Sides to Every Story" (RSO, 1977). The cover always haunts me: he looks very cool, very content. Not Hollywood rock star. Sad that he died less appreciated than he deserves!||1:14:30 ()|
|Gene Clark||Spanish Guitar||From his first solo album, simply called Gene Clark, post-Byrds/Burrito Brothers. So sweet.||1:19:02 ()|
|Robert Plant & Alison Krauss||Polly Come Home||Written by Gene Clark. His version is on the second Dillard & Clark album.||1:24:08 ()|
|Everly Brothers||Gone Gone Gone||This is the original; part of a long country tradition of harmony duos.||1:29:41 ()|
|The Orlons||South Street||1963 Philly hit, part of the Cameo/Parkway scene-- which included "Bristol Stomp" and lots more. I assume this song is one of the earliest mention of hippies.||1:36:23 ()|
|Dennis Coffey||7th Galaxy||Funk Brothers guitarist has fine solo album on Strut (2011)||1:38:44 ()|
|Dennis Coffey||I Bet You||Featuring Mick Collins of the Dirtbombs & Rachel Nagy of The Detroit Cobras||1:42:32 ()|
|Dinah Washington||Blues for a Day||She recorded this song in 1945, at the age of 21.||1:47:48 ()|
|Swamp Dogg and Esther Philips||The Love We Got Aint Worth Two Dead Flies||What a hoot! Esther Philips may be long gone but Swamp Dogg, aka Jerry Williams, is still around. Check him out here on FMU, twice. Once talking with Michael Shelley, then playing on Joe McGasko's show.||1:51:14 ()|
|Group Doueh||Jagwar Doueh||Hot band out of Western Sahara, playing Central Park Summerstage tomorrow.||1:55:28 ()|

|NRBQ||I'm Satisfied||Nice new album, new band. It's cool to be able to regenerate.||2:33:48 ()|
|Marianne Faithfull||Goin' Back||The Byrds do a superb job with this, a Carol King-Gerry Goffin song. This is a good versiono, from a new album: "Horses & High Heels" (Naive, 2011). BTW, she looks great.||2:35:55 ()|
|Old 97s||You Call It Rain||New CD sound good: "The Grand Theatre" on New West. Why do they have to spell theater that way?!||2:39:43 ()|

I was just this second reading about the new Coen Brothers movie to be made, about Dave Van Ronk from his memoirs "The Mayor of MacDougal Street".
Sat. 7/2/11 8:50am
Many thanks for the Tom Russel album cuts, Steve. Brings back super-fine memories of 2001 living in The Village, making short films with my ex-pat Brit friends who introduced that great record to me.
A request for Ian and Sylvia, perhaps, before you sign off ??
Been listening to a lot of Van Ronk lately, too.... very timely!
You made my morning drive to work a special one... even though FMU has been very static-y lately, for some reason... transmitter problems ?

So good to hear you online, again! Thanks for the fill-in.
