Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop‑up player!

Artist Track Comments Approx. start time
Big Guitars from Texas  Guitar Army   Options   0:00:00 (Pop‑up)
Greenbriar Boys  Mississippi Sawyer   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Michael Chapman  Thurston's House   Options From "Trainsong: Guitar Compositions 1967-2010" (Tompkins Square, 2011)  0:04:25 (Pop‑up)
John Miller  Lady Be Good   Options One of those songs I hear everywhere, many versions, many styles. This one took a while to catch on with me.  0:08:13 (Pop‑up)
Norman Blake  OBC #3   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Glenn Jones  On the Massachusetts-Virginia Border   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Frank Fairfield  Haste to the Wedding/The Darling True Love   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Greenbriar Boys  Darby Ram   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Woodstock Mountain Revue  Warm Rain   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Demolition String Band  Wisteria   Options Straight outta Hoboken. From "Different Kinds of Love" on Breaking Records, 2007. On the hills of Jersey...City.  0:35:22 (Pop‑up)
Laura Cantrell  Making Believe   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
The Lonesome Strangers  Goodbye Lonesome, Hello Baby Doll   Options This is Randy Weeks et al, from their 1989 High Tone album. A Johnny Horton tune.  0:41:41 (Pop‑up)
Rosie Flores  Blue Highway   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Nick Lowe  Changing All Those Changes   Options The standout track on a pretty good album of Buddy Holly covers: "Rave On Buddy Holly" on Fantasy (2011).  0:46:59 (Pop‑up)
Blackie & the Rodeo Kings w/ Lucinda Williams  If I Can't Have You   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Blackie & the Rodeo Kings w/ Cassandra Wilson  Golden Sorrows   Options Let's do another!!  0:51:46 (Pop‑up)
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss  Killing the Blues   Options Written by Roly Salley, of Woodstock Mountain Review & lots more.  1:00:52 (Pop‑up)
Dillard & Clark  Out on the Side   Options This combo-- Gene Clark working with banjo whiz Doug Dillard-- produced two of the best albums of the 70s.  1:06:51 (Pop‑up)
Dillard & Clark  Train Leaves Here This Morning   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Gene Clark  Kansas City Southern   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Gene Clark  Spanish Guitar   Options From his first solo album, simply called Gene Clark, post-Byrds/Burrito Brothers. So sweet.  1:19:02 (Pop‑up)
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss  Polly Come Home   Options Written by Gene Clark. His version is on the second Dillard & Clark album.  1:24:08 (Pop‑up)
Everly Brothers  Gone Gone Gone   Options This is the original; part of a long country tradition of harmony duos.  1:29:41 (Pop‑up)
The Orlons  South Street   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Dennis Coffey  7th Galaxy   Options Funk Brothers guitarist has fine solo album on Strut (2011)  1:38:44 (Pop‑up)

Gary US Bonds  New Orleans   Options Is this really from 1960? Boy, I'm old. I remember this from when I went to the James A Garfield Junior High School in Revere, Massachusetts.  2:30:39 (Pop‑up)
NRBQ  I'm Satisfied   Options Nice new album, new band. It's cool to be able to regenerate.  2:33:48 (Pop‑up)
Marianne Faithfull  Goin' Back   Options 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 (Pop‑up)
Old 97s  You Call It Rain   Options New CD sound good: "The Grand Theatre" on New West. Why do they have to spell theater that way?!  2:39:43 (Pop‑up)

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".
  8:50am Mikey D.:

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 ?
  9:00am Hugh:

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