Lyle Lovett : Step Inside This House

Everything about this is masterful, the song (by Guy Clark, funnily I couldn’t find a single version of this by himself so I am not sure if he even recorded it himself), the vocals by Mr. Lovett and the musical arrangement/accompaniment, especially the lap steel guitar. Not to mention beautiful. An ode to simple living, filled with music and memories.

Rebels With A Cause – How Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle Saved Country Music

Read this brief, but spot-on story about the new blood being infused into the Country Music scene in the mid-1980’s over at Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

Steve Earle : My Old Friend The Blues

Plus, Steve Earle can be seen playing a Martin 15 Series guitar in the article closely related to the one I do (although he undoubtedly does so much better than me)

Native North America (Vol. 1 : Aboriginal Folk, Rock and Country, 1966 – 1985)

This release touches some of my main concerns at the moment, music and Native American interest. I haven’t got the album yet, but have recently ordered it. I will be writing more about it once I have got the album and had the chance to engange with it properly. In the meantime, here’s a link to a short video on YouTube explaining what the project is about.
