REPOST: Learn something new everyday: A Dylan/Old Crow co-write?

————————————————————————————————– I first posted this back in May. Since then there has not been a single week pass where someone has not emailed me looking for the songs again. So, I decided to make a repost and include a little more information: The Old Crow Medicine Show version of this song is available on their … Continue reading “REPOST: Learn something new everyday: A Dylan/Old Crow co-write?”

Learn something new everyday: A Dylan/Old Crow co-write?

When I started typing this post I had no idea but today is Bob Dylan’s 66th Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB. This morning I was sitting here listening to the new cd, Two Bottles Of Wine by Jason Webley and Reverend Peyton. At the end of the cd is a cover song that I instantly recognized … Continue reading “Learn something new everyday: A Dylan/Old Crow co-write?”

On his latest release Alias Kid Twist, Tyler records solo and strips his classic surliness down to just his guitar, piano and voice. … Continue reading “Tyler Keith – Alias Kid Twist”

UPSETLISTS #4

Upsetlists are EP-length transmissions, upsetting set-lists, malfunctioning time machines, flashes of divine recombination. A coupla-song podcast. This one is for all the whales in captivity: Bob Neuwirth – “Kiss Money” – Bob Neuwirth (1974): Bob Dylan’s old buddy, Neuwirth’s recorded output resembles more outlaw country kind of stuff. He wrote one of my favorite Kristofferson songs, “Rock & … Continue reading “UPSETLISTS #4”

I own the previous four records, as well as the brand new Souvenirs Of A Misspent Youth, and there isn’t a misstep to be found. Gibbs clearly knows who he is as an artist and he has taken the … Continue reading “OTIS GIBBS – SOUVENIRS OF A MISSPENT YOUTH”

WITNESSES pt. III – BILLY BRAGG

I am not clued-in to the minute developments in Ferguson right now. Nor to our aggression in Iraq, what’s happening or not happening in Israel, water shortages, ice buckets, the Tsarnaev trial. I feel like I am failing because of my distance from all of that, but failing on these specific terms: I am keeping … Continue reading “WITNESSES pt. III – BILLY BRAGG”
