Dave Alvin with Greg Leisz and Christy McWilson - "Fourth of July"

This one's for you, The Polack MSgt.



With the great Greg Leisz, too!

Little Feat - Willin'

Pretty good quality video (band introductions towards the end of the song are spliced out)

Dave Alvin - "On The Way Downtown"

Dave does a brilliant cover of this great Peter Case song.

Across the Borderline - Gaby Moreno Live from Here with Chris Thile

This is such a great song written by Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Jim Dickinson.

This version will make you tear up.

"you got the whole damn thing all wrong"

I was a 16 year old junior in Catholic school when Aqualung came out and it quickly became my favorite album of my high school years. My first concert was Jethro Tull.

I haven't given it much thought over the years but I still love that album even though my musical tastes have changed a lot. I wondered whether it had a negative influence on me all those years ago, but I didn't realize how much it influenced me until I recently listened to it from start to finish and of course I was singing all of the lyrics.

I always thought Ian Anderson was an underrated genius and the band was at the top of its form. I loved their blend of blues, rock, jazz and folk.

As I listened to the final track I realize that Aqualung made me a better person.


Red Molly - 1952 Vincent Black Lightening

This has to be good because they got their name from the song.
There a lot of cover versions but I really like this one.

Carolina Chocolate Drops - Country Girl



Rhiannon Giddens is wonderful. The whole band is great.

Sierra Ferrell - Snakes Crawl at Night

The woman is amazing!

So creative and entertaining.



She does a more conventional country version but this is not your dad's Charley Pride song!

These guys are good - The Stray Birds



Nice little Jimmie Rodgers cover


Billy Strings - Loser



He does a lot of Dead covers.
