  1. Neal, I listened to "When the World's on Fire," and it's absolutely amazing - Woody didn't do much at all with this one, did he. That said, I still don't know if he was proud or ashamed to be an American - I can see it both ways, which is probably the point. Although I didn't quite understand all the words (I'm sure I could find them on the internet), there's a certain innocence to The Carter Family's song that I find sweet and charming. Trivia: June Carter is a distant cousin of President Jimmy Carter (!)
  2. I accidentally got exposed to The Tragically Hip back in....the very early 1990s? I saw them play at a show at Hammerjack's as a part of, I think, an WHFS thing. 'New Orleans is Sinking' was the song that drew me in. I heard a few more songs over the years, but I never bought any of their albums or saw them play again, live. Then, a few years ago, my wife gets me a compilation of their work (Yer Favourites) and I love it! They are kind of rocking, kind of Canadia, kind of thoughtful, kind of twangy, kind of just good. "At the Hundredth Meridian" (1992) "Fifty Mission Cap" (1993) "Bobcageyon" (1999)
  3. I'm writing this for my mom, who enjoyed listening to Mel Tillis (among many other country-music singers). From what little I knew of him, he seemed like a really nice person. "Longtime Country Singer, Songwriter Mel Tillis Dies" on abcnews.go.com
  4. "D.L. Menard's 'Back Door' Makes Rolling Stone List" (Of Top 100 Country Songs)" by Herman Fuselier on theadvertiser.com And here is the 1962 Cajun hit by Badeaux and the Louisiana Aces!
  5. This is a great song. Here's Johnny Cash, performing it at San Quentin Prison:
  6. I notice there isn't a thread on one of the finest songwriters of the 20th century - Townes Van Zandt. Unlike some other "songwriter's songwriters," I always always prefer Townes' versions of his own songs over the covers. As the (also) great Steve Earle said, "Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world, and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that." "Pancho and Lefty" "Waiting Around to Die" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDymc0CJ6pQ And my favorite of all time: "If I Needed You"
  7. Does anyone remember this commercial: for Boxcar Willie's album? IMHO he's one of the most amazing musicians since Slim Whitman. Weird fact: There's a Boxcar Willie Park near L'Enfant Plaza. Huh?
  8. One of the greatest concert albums of all time, "The Johnny Otis Show Live at Monterey!", from the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival, was once among the crown jewels of my LP collection. From that record, here is Esther Phillips, known in her early years as "Little Esther", with "Little Esther's Blues". She left us way too soon.
  9. And people think we're not on top of things. This is a rare *live* version by the master himself. "See the tree, how big it's grown, but friend it hasn't been too long, it wasn't big." Here's a cover by George44. "She was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart, and I loved her so." And a particularly tender version by Larry L. "She wrecked the car, and she was sad, so afraid that I'd be mad, but what the heck?"
