The Stray Birds : Best Medicine

The first song I heard by a band that was previously unknown to me. Of course this sounds quite a lot like Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings’ work, but what the hell is wrong with that? Nothing, that’s what.


Bill Morrissey and Greg Brown : He Was A Friend Of Mine

Just bought the album of the same name and it is really outstanding – which could have been expected of course, coming from Mrs. Morrissey and Brown. This version of the classic He Was A Friend Of Mine is gorgeous and heartwarming.

For Tex Art Hobart and Michael Roth (who are both alive and well, by the way). You know who you are to me.
