Lucinda Williams – Little Honey (10/2008)

Lucinda Williams – Little Honey (10/2008)

Everybody loves Lucy! Apparently!

We like some of her stuff. And this is her much heralded new work.

The first thing Lucinda Williams announces on her ninth studio album is that she found the love she was looking for standing behind an electric guitar. Twelve songs later, she signs off with a bit of wisdom from the late Australian philosopher Bon Scott: “It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll.” The message? After chilling (and bumming) out on last year’s mortality-fixated West, which she said was inspired by the electronic blues of Thievery Corporation and Kruder & Dorfmeister, Williams goes back to the roots-rock well and takes a long, satisfying swig. The result is her finest record since Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, the decade-old masterpiece by which her career will always be judged.

Little Honey is a retrenchment, but it isn’t narrowly focused: “Real Love” and “Honey Bee” are rowdy bar-band rave-ups; “Knowing” and “Rarity” have gorgeous vintage-soul horn arrangements; “Well Well Well” jumps with electric bluegrass rhythms. Over the scrappy juke-joint groove of “Jailhouse Tears,” Williams trades soured lover’s accusations with Elvis Costello. What unites the songs is the restored hope in Williams’ singing, whether she’s describing her engagement to Little Honey coproducer Tom Overby in “Tears of Joy” or the purity of an unnamed musician’s talent in “Rarity.” Amid all this emotional renewal, even the closing AC/DC cover sounds pretty profound.

Tracklisting

1. Real Love
2. Circles And X’s
3. Tears Of Joy
4. Little Rock Star
5. Honey Bee
6. Well Well Well
7. If Wishes Were Horses
8. Jailhouse Tears
9. Knowing
10. Heaven Blues
11. Rarity

Big thanks to victory

Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power -The Amorphous Strums – Dark Developments [2008]

Vic Chesnutt & Elf Power-The Amorphous Strums – Dark Developments [2008]
On Lame 320CBR | 2008 | Rock

A wonderful collaboration between the great Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power!

We love it!

It’s even got a great ditty about John Mc Cain. It’s called Little Fucker !

Vic recorded Dark Developments in his own attic studio in the Winter of 2007.

It has trademark folk guitar ramblings spiced with Velvet Underground licks Chesnutt is still very much into lo-fi and this album is calling card for all aspiring home-recording artists. All you need are a good idea for a song, inviting a few friends to play along with you and press “record”!!

The boys, of course, have collaborated before – most famously in 2004 on the Elf Power album Walking with the Beggar Boys.

Legendary songwriter Vic Chesnutt teams with Elephant 6 psychsters Elf Power for a daunting sum of a record recalling the sounds of John Cale, Lou Reed and Nick Lowe.

A tuneful collision of Athens institutions finds fruition this fall when Orange Twin releases Vic Chesnutt’s collaboration with Elephant 6 psychsters Elf Power, Dark Developments. As intriguing as this combination may seem for hardcore fans of either act, the final sonic results reveal a daunting sum much greater than even the involvement of such esteemed parts would imply. The Elves’ lived-in dexterity as a live band goads Vic’s vocal delivery to a menacing new muscularity, imbuing this batch of songs with a sinister vibe not dissimilar to John Cale’s black classic Fear, the harsh, articulate sleaze of Lou Reed’s Street Hassle or the defeated low key soul-music of Nick Lowe’s last few records.

As useful as these benchmark-records are in identifying Dark Developments’ own unique spirit, this record truly stands on its own as a brilliant statement, a classic addition to Athens’ legendary pantheon, and, most importantly, as an organic meeting of two separately-evolved and vital musical entities that never feels forced, flashy or false. This is an important album endemic of a natural partnership, and a great way to spend an afternoon.

Vic Chesnutt’s songwriting retains its trademark literary bent, as a tune like “Stop The Horse,” or the withered gallows-stroll of “The Mad Passion of The Stoic” flash the narrative weight, sturdy construction and lexical mystery of a long lost Raymond Carver story. And Chesnutt can still woo you with the odd, beautiful chord-change, the compelling melody and the strange sonic turn in the road. Album opener “Mystery,” moves from a desperately wordless lullaby into a torchy, fragile folk-waltz and back again in about three minutes time, all the while supporting an intuitive rumination on loss and the passage of time.

There’s a reggae stutter buried in the bridges and verses of “Teddy Bear,” an oddball keyboard vamp suturing them all together, and a chorus of strange beheaded whispers orbiting just outside the elemental and poignant refrain: “He ain’t never comin’ back.” Again, this all transpires within the pop-sanctioned three-minute borderline, and the song stands as a totem for just how action-packed this record is on all levels.

Recorded over the course of a winter by Vic and Derek Almstead in Chesnutt’s own attic studio, Dark Developments revels in the intimate, home-recorded atmosphere you’d expect from an Athenian union like this. And Elf Power sounds characteristically powerful in this setting: there’s the crack rhythm section of Almstead and Josh Lott (making his final appearance as an Elf) to anchor the affair, the subtle and tremulous interplay of guitarists Andrew Reiger and Jimmy Hughes, and the esoteric whimsy supplied by Laura Carter’s improvisational Moog and accordion.

Indeed, the band’s famously-honed instincts and Day-Glo pop-smarts provide the contradictory musical notions that never allow the album to sway too far in one bleak direction or another: it’s that friction extant between Chesnutt’s shadowy worldview and the inventive bounce and bray of Elf Power’s euphonious intra-band chemistry that buoys Dark Developments, provides its freshness, and makes for rewarding repeated listening

Ryan Adams – Bedhead Vols. 1 & 2 (a.k.a. Live Is Hell)

http://lyricssothatidonthavetokeepsearchinggoogle.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/ryan-adams.jpg

Ryan Adams – Bedhead Vols. 1 & 2 (a.k.a. Live Is Hell)

An amazing collection of the best of the manifold Adams boots!

Adams, although sometimes capable of greatness (e.g the sublime Jacksonville City Nights – one of the best albums of the past deacade) produces output that is voluminous but however of variable quality.

Plus Adams is a bit of a tosser in real life (from what we read!)

Regardless though, he is an amazing songwriter. One of the best of his generation.

Some proof of this can be had here!

This great collection comes from hardhittingsongs .

Thanks mate! … Check their great blog out!

Lambchop – OH (Ohio) [2008]

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

Lambchop – OH (Ohio)
MERGE
2008

We’ve always loved the great music made by Kurt Wagner and his Lambchop ensemble and have been looking forward to this more eagerly than a dog who’s not had a boner in 6 months!

We’ve had but one listen, but we’ve had a boner!

So, ahem ahem ….. on October 7, Merge Records will release OH (ohio), the new album by Lambchop, a group the All Music Guide has called “arguably the most consistently brilliant and unique American group to emerge [in the past two decades].”

OH (ohio) was recorded in Lambchop’s hometown of Nashville and produced by part-time ‘chopper Mark Nevers at his Beech House studio. It features 11 new songs all written by Kurt Wagner, many with evocative titles – the stately soul folk of “Slipped Dissolved and Loosed,” the galloping rhythms and chiming guitar-piano interplay of “National Talk Like a Pirate Day,” and the shapeshifting, nearly funky “Popeye” – that have become a Lambchop hallmark.

Change is a subtle thing in Lambchop’s world. As his catalogue suggests, Wagner is a great believer in the natural pace of life. But he does concede that, for a group whose ranks once swelled to more than 20, “The last few years have been about a distillation of the collective into a core band: Tony Crow (piano), William Tyler (guitar), Matt Swanson (bass), Alex McManus (guitar) and now Ryan Norris (keyboards, guitar) and Scott Martin (drums). This is their sound, and it’s Lambchop’s sound. But,” Wagner continues, “Lambchop more and more has become a vehicle for my songs and myself as an artist. I’ve fought against that interpretation for twenty years, but now I’ve just given up trying to fight it anymore.”

It seems only appropriate, then, that Wagner is planning a U.S. solo tour around the release of OH (ohio). Stay tuned for more information on tour dates in the coming weeks.

Tracklisting

1. Ohio (2:24)
2. Slipped Dissolved And Loosed (4:50)
3. I’m Thinking Of A Number (6:18)
4. National Talk Like A Pirate Day (5:59)
5. A Hold Of You (5:38)
6. Sharing A Gibson With Martin Luther King Jr. (4:34)
7. Of Raymond (3:02)
8. Please Rise (3:39)
9. Popeye (6:18)
10. Close Up (3:52)
11. I Believe In You (3:27)

Planes, Trains and Automobiles OST

Released; 1987


Genre; Rock and Roll / Country / Pop

Length; 34:32

Label; MCA

Six bucks and my right nut says we’re not landing in Chicago.



There seems to have been two separate soundtracks released for this movie;

  • the “songs only” soundtrack (i.e. this one!) and
  • the Ira Newborn score / soundtrack (which we’ve posted HERE! )

OK. Let’s come out and say that the reason we dug out this OST was, of course, the rather strange fact that our favourite Irish band ever, THE STARS OF HEAVEN, although as obscure to the music masses as a braincell in GW Bush’s skull, appear on the soundtrack to this big-budget Hollywood film!

How the fuck did that happen, you may well ask! I haven’t a fucking clue, but I’m glad it did!


I’ve written about THE STARS OF HEAVEN – a band decades ahead of their time and who pioneered the alt-country genre – in the most glowing manner a few times before and posted some of their MAGNIFICENT albums. Check em out Here!

Here, the boys do a good cover of “Wheels”, a song by one of their heroes, Gram Parsons.

I guess this is probably a good time as any to tell you this. Our tickets are only good to St. Louis. St. Louis to Chi-town is booked tighter than Tom Thumb’s ass.
Aside from the Stars, the OST is very eclectic and has some other wonderful moments with renowned great artists such as Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris, as well as cult bands such as The Dream Academy.

A couple of tracks though could have been better chosen especially the dire Silicon Teens!

https://i2.wp.com/img2.timeinc.net/ew/dynamic/imgs/041118/163031__planes_l.jpgThe soundtrack features a mix of rock and roll, country and pop. The frenetic musical score by Ira Newborn, makes extensive use of the folk song Red River Valley, including a souped up version of the song, Red River Rock, performed by British group Silicon Teens.

Among other tracks is a cover version of “Back in Baby’s Arms”, used during the scene when Steve Martin’s and John Candy’s characters wake up embracing each other in the morning. The song, popularized by Patsy Cline, is performed by Emmylou Harris.

The soundtrack album was released in 1987, but has since gone out of print.

Her first baby came out sideways. She didn’t scream or nothin.

Songs featured in the film but not included on the soundtrack album include “(Meet) The Flintstones” (sung on the bus) and “Three Coins in the Fountain” (which Steve Martin’s character tries to sing on the bus) and “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, the song John Candy’s character is listening to when he plays “air instruments” while driving; swerving and puffing cigarettes, while Steve Martin’s character sleeps.

An additional track by Steve Earle, “Continental Trailways Blues”, was composed for the film, but was not included on the soundtrack album. The song is included on the 1996 compilation, Ain’t Ever Satisfied: The Steve Earle Collection. Not included in the soundtrack is the song Everytime You Go Away performed by Blue Room at the end of the film.

Neal: Del, why did you kiss my ear?

Del: Why are you holding my hand?

Neal: Where’s your other hand?

Del: Between two pillows …

Neal: Those aren’t pillows!

The movie itself is excellent too, replete with loads of classic comic moments. Far better than one would expect from writer / director John Hughes – who here avoids sappy sentimentality and teenagers in favour of a adult oriented intelligent comedy ! – and star Steve Martin, who believe it or not, was still funny then! There’s the classic scene where Martin unleashes a tirade, littered with ‘fucks” at a car rental agent … You can start by wiping that fucking dumb-ass smile off your rosey, fucking, cheeks … etc!

Of course, we always liked the comic acting of the late great John Candy.

We’ve posted a DVD rip of the movie too … grab it HERE!

Both Sides Now – The Spirit of Americana – VA (2002)


Both Sides Now: The Spirit of Americana – VA (2002)
Mp3 @ 160 kbps / 2 files – 89.5 MB & 86.0 MB / RS

Both Sides Now – Best Of Americana was a 2002 UK-exclusive release, compiled by Uncut magazine’s Nigel Williamson.

The collection aims to offer a comprehensive summary of Americana as it currently stands with 37 tracks from such an array of amazing artists like Bob Dylan, Flaming Lips, Lambchop, Mercury Rev, Jim O’Rourke, Thea Gilmore, Radar Brothers, Be Good Tanyas, Silver Jews, Hope Sandoval & The Warm Intentions & many more.

Funny, I wouldn’t associate many of these with Americana! But so fucking what! It’s great music!

Yap – although they did cast their Americana net a little too widely, there are still plenty of gems on this compilation.

Those seeking a purer form of Americana could do worse than check out the Flyinshoes podcast which comes from Nottingham, in the middle of the UK, rather strangely! I always knew Britland was the 51st US State!!

Some of these rather good podcasts can be had here; www.archive.org/flyinshoes

Both Sides Now collects two discs’ worth of contemporary artists who work loosely under the genre label Americana, although it is difficult to imagine some of the these acts actually falling into that drawer, like the Flaming Lips, for example, whose “Do You Realize” is included here.

That said, this is a pretty cool anthology with a lot of highlights, starting with the first track, Bob Dylan’s “High Water (For Charley Patton).” The woefully underappreciated Rodney Crowell contributes “Ballad of a Teenage Queen,” while Steve Earle brings his courageous (and controversial) “Ballad of John Walker,” and the two songs seem to sort of bookend the American experience. BR5-49 does a loving cover of Gram Parsons’ “Hickory Wind.” The Flaming Lips’ erstwhile cousin Mercury Rev, another band that works “in the spirit of Americana” rather than in Americana itself, is represented here by the pretty “Little Rhymes.” A fine introduction to some interesting artists who seem to never show up on MTV ( or on CMT, either, for that matter).

– Steve Leggett
Well, here’s a useful catch-all, catch-up compilation in time for slipping into your Americana Christmas stocking. Sub-sub-titled The Best of Americana 2002! It rather stretches a point to include the Flaming Lips’ pop-glorious Do You Realise? and Warren Zevon’s You’re A Whole Different Person, but otherwise this embraces all shades of the genre, from sparse mountain music to gutsy guitar rocking, from the Be Good Tanyas, Arlenes and Silver Jews to Jason Ringenberg, Jay Farrar and Grant Lee Phillips.

Rather than the review descending into an extended list, suffice to point you in the direction of Raul Malo & Shelby Lynn’s revamp of It Takes Two To Tango, Rodney Crowell’s Johnny Cash tribute album version of Ballad of a Teenage Queen, the inclusion of little known but worth discovering names Dan Bern, Wiskey Biscuit, Departure Lounge, and Cicero Buck, After All This Time from Darden’s Smith’s criminally underpublicised comeback album, and the fragile beauty of Hope Sandoval’s Suzanne.

But whether your taste leans more to Dylan (High Water) or Lambchop (I Can Hardly Spell My Name) with its balance of reliable old timers and emergent heirs to the throne (Mary Gauthier step right up), even with the notable omissions of Ryan Adams, The Guthries and Eileen Rose, this is ridiculously good value for money, even though it’ll probably cost you a fortune tracking down the albums by the artists you’ll just be discovering within. And I managed to get through the whole review without once drooling over the fact it also contains Thea Gilmore’s not-entirely-Americana-but-who-cares cover of I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine from her forthcoming new album. Oh darn!

Iron & Wine Discography

https://i2.wp.com/www.onetonnemusic.com/mt-static/archives/iron_wine.jpg

A great piece below from indieducky.com together with great links to the rather good music made by Jim Beam’s brother, Sam, whose unique brand of psychedelic alt_folk has been garnering ever growing audiences in the past 6 years or so.

Get downloading!

Iron & Wine is Sam Beam, a college professor from Miami, Florida who plays acoustic guitar and occasional banjo, keeping to a folk tradition while bringing in some country and old-time blues. He whispers his vocals and often sings his own harmony parts. Recorded at home on a four-track, the songs on The Creek Drank the Cradle benefit from the foggy sound, depicting a rural South and such related themes as fallenness, religious faith and the Gothic tradition. The closing Muddy Hymnal sums up Beam’s concerns and imagery in the lines “Muddy hymnals and some boot marks where you’d been” and “The righteous suffer in a fallen land.” It’s easy to hear a Faulknerian persuasion here, but Beam comes across as a literary mind that processes its influences and creates something novel. Beam’s playing, likewise, has strong roots in folk, but he’s added other elements to create original melodies and arrangements, even within the sparse sonic framework.

The Sea & the Rhythm, five tracks left over from the first album, follows its sound and feel with little if any drop in quality. With an increased religious dedication, Beam explores sin and forgiveness on Jesus the Mexican Boy; in fact, four of the songs have Christian imagery or allusions, conveying hope (Beneath the Balcony), anxiety (The Night Descending), grace (Jesus the Mexican Boy) and love (Someday the Waves). The non-religious title track delves into a more physical sensuality, but retains an ethereal lyrical feel.

Beam uses the subtle tension between the physical and the spiritual to fuller and greater effect on Our Endless Numbered Days. He continues to develop his religious themes, in the opening On Your Wings (addressed to God) and Sodom, South Georgia (which portrays the intersection of blind faith and questioning doubt). He also considers on the paradoxes of freedom in restraint and presence in absence. In these complex studies, Beam’s lyrics are abstract but accessible. Recording in Chicago with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse), Beam allowed the sound to expand modestly from the debut, with outside instrumental and vocal assistance, including his sister Sarah.

Since his first album in 2002, Beam remains consistent in both the quality and the general approach of his songwriting, but his production techniques seem to expand gradually outward with each release. If his debut was Beam’s Meet the Beatles, Shepard’s Dog is undoubtedly his Sgt. Pepper. It bears full-blown kaleidoscopic arrangements that utilize Eastern tonalities, a panoply of effects, atmospheric textures, and exotic percussion; the results can only be called psychedelic folk, but Shepard’s Dog, with its carefully crafted tunes and backing, bears little relation to the usual psych-folk suspects. While fans of Animal Collective et al., will be able to relate, the album owes more to the great art-folk singer-songwriter recordings of the late ’60s/early ’70s.

Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – "Come Pick Me Up"

I wish you would come pick me up, take me out, fuck me up

//fc04.deviantart.com/fs22/f/2007/358/f/6/Table_for_Sale___Barely_Used_by_adle.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
by adle

When they call your name
Will you walk right up
With a smile on your face
Or will you cower in fear
In your favorite sweater
With an old love letter

I wish you would
I wish you would
Come pick me up
Take me out
Fuck me up
Steal my records
Screw all my friends
They’re all full of shit
With a smile on your face
And then do it again
I wish you would

When you’re walking downtown
Do you wish I was there
Do you wish it was me
With the windows clear and the mannequins eyes
Do they all look like mine

You know you could
I wish you would
Come pick me up
Take me out
Fuck me up
Steal my records
Screw all my friends behind my back
With a smile on your face
And then do it again
I wish you would

I wish you’d make up my bed
So I could make up my mind
Try it for sleeping instead
Maybe you’ll rest sometime
I wish I could

Ryan Adams & The Cardinals performing “Come Pick Me Up” on the Letterman show.

This song, written by Adams and Van Alston, appears on the Heartbreaker LP (2000), his debut solo album.

Ryan Adams A to Z . . . LIVE!

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/39/Ryan-adams-live.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Adams is a frustrating character. Hugely talented and able to produce records of inherent greatness – such as some of the Whiskytown albums (esp. Stranger’s Almanac) and some solo stuff such as Jacksonville City Nights – but just as often, dull MOR songs and albums.

He prizes the fact that his output is voluminous … but more does not necessarily mean better! Often the opposite, in fact!

Also, he really does try way too fucking hard to be a “real” rock n’roll star!! … Ryan, you ain’t Keef Richards … nor shall you ever be!

Saying that, he has written some mighty songs.

And here are live versions of some of these great tracks here posted by the excellent berkeleyplace

http://brandonoliver.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/ryan-adams-n02.jpg

Ryan Adams A to Z . . . LIVE!

A is for Answering Bell (acoustic version) (live)-Ryan Adams

B is for Battering Down Your Soul-Ryan Adams (acoustic)

C is for Carolina, as in Sweet Carolina (acoustic version)-Ryan Adams

D is for Drunk Santa-Rapper??

E is for Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart-Whiskeytown (live 1977)

F is for Further Down the Road-Whiskeytown (unreleased track)

G is for The Ghosts are Out Tonight-Ryan Adams.

H is for Hipshake-Whiskeytown (unreleased track)

I is for I’m In Love Because I Just Made Love-Ryan Adams. (One of my favorite titled Ryan tunes.)

J is for Jesus on the Dashboard-Ryan Adams

K is for a kiss before i go-Ryan Adams (acoustic)

L is for Lo Fi Tennessee Mountain Angel-Whiskeytown

M is for My Winding Wheel-Ryan Adams

N is for Nurses with the Pills-Whiskeytown

O is for Ooooh Las Vegas-Ryan Adams

P is for Poison and the Pen-Ryan Adams

R is for Rescue Blues-Ryan Adams

S is for 16 Days-Whiskeytown (slow version)

T is for Tina Toledo’s Walkin’ Blues-Ryan Adams

U is for unknown title. I think this is called One Of Us Is The Sucker (And The Other One Gets To Play)-Ryan Adams.

I couldn’t find something for V, so I figured I’d throw in Dancing With The Women at the Bar. This is Ryan Adams’ version of the song originally recorded by Whiskeytown, from one of my favorite albums ever, “Stranger’s Almanac.” I recommend you all buy it now.

W is for When the Stars Go Blue-Ryan Adams

Y is for You Will Always Be the Same-Ryan Adams

Z is for ZIP file of all the savefile/mooloads.

Bono The Complete Solo Projects Volume 1 – 5

Bono – The Complete Solo Project
2007/ Mp3 various bit rates / Rock / Pop

I’m not a huge fan of U2 although I must confess to liking them in the early days. They then had a post punk aesthetic and were making some interesting music. As time progressed though, and as they became commercial ogres and built a financial empire that needed to be maintained, the music seemed to get progressively more bloated and, aside from the odd decent track, far less interesting.

https://i2.wp.com/media.southparkstudios.com/media/images/1109/1109_bono_enter.jpg

And this guy Bono has an ego the size of the universe. The little chap thinks he can cure all of the world’s ills single-handedly! Check out a recent South Park episode ( Season 11 Episode 09 “More Crap”) where Mr Savetheworld got a bit of a kicking!!
https://i2.wp.com/media.southparkstudios.com/media/images/1109/1109_bono_talks_with_stan.jpg

Saying that, there is some interesting stuff here in the vast collection of Boner solo. The sound quality is excellent too.

Thanks to the original compiler for the notes etc … which I have not edited.

Comments:

Color cover. This bootleg is a collection of recordings from other CDs and LPs. The sources of the song were poorly printed and are very hard to read (light red on red print). The cover features a picture of Bono sitting in a chair with a guitar in his hands. On the back is a picture of Bono in his Mac Phisto look. The CD is a black picture CD, featuring Bono coming out of the dark and the word ‘SOLO’ in big orange print. Inside are many pictures of Bono from past to present. “Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad” has a live intro in what can be termed as “Vegas-style” with Bono stating, “Hello Los Angelos…” The version of “One” is very cool, with Bono singing with Michael Stipe of R.E.M.. “Give Me Back My Job” is from Carl Perkins’ ‘Go Cat Go’ and features Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Tom Petty. Overall, a nice CD.

Comments:

Tracks 1 and 9 also feature Robbie Robertson. Tracks 2 and 10 and feature many other artists. Track 3 features Willie Nelson. Tracks 4 and 5 feature Luciano Pavorotti and Brian Eno. Track 8 features Sinead O’Connor. Track 11 features T-Bone Burnett. Most of the other tracks feature the entire band also. This is a nice collection of tracks by one or more members of U2. I don’t know why this compilation is called BONO THE COMPLETE SOLO PROJECTS VOLUME TWO. In my opinion, a better title for this CD would have been: U2 – DUETS II. The entire band is involved on all but three tracks of this CD. Most tracks are easy to find on official CDs but it’s nice to have them all together so you don’t have to buy an entire album for only one or two U2-related tracks. This is still an excellent-sounding collection of U2 (and-U2 related) tracks for the people who do not yet own all of these tracks. It’s a nice CD with some music that you will only find on tribute albums or compilations. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have a barcode or manufacturer. There are some slight errors on the tracklisting, but the above should be correct.

Josephine Foster – This Coming Gladness [2008]


Josephine Foster – This Coming Gladness [2008]
Colorado born Josephine Foster has practically defined what it means to be an outsider folk singer. Initially with Born Heller and then solo and accompanied by the Supposed, her unsettling soprano and way with a song takes the eerie otherness of those early Appalachian ballads and brings them, whispering, into our dreams.

The Coming Gladness brings the folk aesthetic that Josephine has explored in her recent albums to the psyche rock territory of her recordings with the Supposed.

This intense, uncompromising music is the looming badlands landscape lit by the charged lightning strikes of an extraordinary voice. That voice belongs to no movement, trend or fashion, any more than the equally haunted spirit of Tim Buckley, another outsider, another unique talent, did in his day. It is simply great music and Josephine Foster is, simply, a great singer, simply a great songwriter.

Guitarist Victor Herrero and percussionist Alex Nielson more than contribute to the otherworldly sound of the album. Alex Nielson has been the drummer of choice for Will Oldham, Current 93, and many others, while also fronting his own bands Directing Hand, Tight Meat Duo, and Trembling Bells. Victor as accomplished on electric guitar as acoustic, has also a new solo acoustic guitar soon to be released on Bo’ Weavil. .

The Beatles – Back-Track [FLAC]


The Beatles – Back-Track [FLAC]

Box Top – BT6267 – SB 5

EAC > WAV > FLAC

This disc combines the Swingin’ Pig’s Ultra Rare Trax 1 and Ultra Rare Trax 2 onto one disc, and sorts the tracks in a more logical order.

The sound quality is a clone of the Pig’s discs, and this was an outstanding compilation at the time of it’s release – in fact, more preferred to many collectors over the Pig’s URT.

It was the recordings on this disc that turned the legit world on it’s ear to recognise how bootlegs had grown up…literally, the record industry would never be the same again. Funny how the Beatles did that twice…once on their own, again via the bootlegs!!




Tracklisting

1) Besame Mucho

2) How Do You Do It

3) I Saw Her Standing There

4) There’s a Place

5) There’s a Place

6) Misery

7) The One After 909

8) From Me To You

9) Can’t Buy Me Love

10) A Hard Day’s Night

11) Leave My Kitten Alone

12) She’s a Woman

13) If You Got Trouble

14) I’m Looking Through You

15) Norwegian Wood (2 takes)

16) Norwegian Wood

17) We Can Work it Out

We liked Slowdive back in the day. We loved Mojave 3. And we’re liking our first listen to this, Neil’s sophomore solo outing!

Time Out has called Neil Halstead “one of Britain’s greatest songwriters”; NME said he wrote “the kind of honest, heartfelt love songs men are too scared or too cool to write these days”.
Currently based in Newquay, the singer and guitarist cut three albums with Thames Valley shoegazers Slowdive, before forming 4AD favourites Mojave 3 in 1995 (alongside fellow Slowdiver Rachel Goswell). Neil made his solo debut in 2002 with Sleeping On Roads.

His second solo album, ‘Oh! Mighty Engine’ will be released by Brushfire Records on July 29, 2008.

Scotland Barr & The Slow Drags – All The Great Aviators Agree (2008)

Scotland Barr & The Slow Drags – All The Great Aviators Agree (2008)
MP3 | Average VBR 245 Kbps 41000 Stereo | 40:38 | 77.03MB
2008 | Genre: Americana | Alt Country | Folk Rock | Songwriter

We loved this group’s excellent, but sadly neglected, debut Legionnaires’ Disease which we posted HERE

This one’s pretty fucking good as well!

Check it out!

‘All The Great Aviators Agree’ is the second release from this passionate six-piece ensemble. The album throbs with a big heart capable of dynamic extremes: smokey vocals grapple with soaring four-part harmonies, keyboards tangle with overdriven guitar, pedal steel bends around an acoustic 6 string, drums irreverently confuse country and rock. Above it all, lead singer Scotland Barr’s bold, emotionally resonant songwriting and insistent melodies shine through, with rough edges intact.

This is an album that seems achingly familiar, yet is a work of singular character… capturing a great band as they lift off on their next remarkable voyage.

Tracklisting

01 – Fall Hard
02 – Don’t Get So Heavy
03 – Juanita
04 – Dirty Old Waltz
05 – Mexican Blanket
06 – She’s Happy
07 – Heart Of Rome
08 – Come To Bed
09 – The Burden
10 – Something New
11 – If You Fall

T-Bone Burnett – T-Bone Burnett (1986)

T-Bone Burnett – T-Bone Burnett (1986)
Genre: Folk Rock | MP3 VBR Avg. 243 kbps | 77 MB | 45 min.

A great solo work from the gangly Texan and pal of Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello!

Yap, he’s the one responsible for Bob becoming all freaky Born-Again, and later for breaking up the Attractions! Apparently!

There was a very good piece about him in a recent edition of Uncut Magazine. Check it out!

Long tall Texan T-Bone Burnett has one of those nasal, Dylanish voices that you might call an acquired taste. Still, once you’ve gotten past that initial barrier to entry, you’re hooked.

On this eponymous release, T-Bone takes the neotraditional high road: there’s not an electrified note to be heard. Instead he’s assembled an acoustic ensemble to die for, including dobro wizard Jerry Douglas, fiddler Byron Berline, and Los Lobos’ Dave Hidalgo. The songs–particularly “River of Love” and “Shake Yourself Loose”–are smart, lovely, and low-key. And even the bits that T-Bone clearly tossed off on the way to the studio receive eloquent performances.

Jerry Douglas fans, please note: the disc includes two unaccompanied, CD-only tracks by the Slide Ruler himself, who makes Burnett’s melodies sound more desolate and Appalachian than usual.

– Amazon

T-Bone Burnett’s self-titled fourth album is the most austere and uncluttered project he’s released to date, quite a switch from the high-concept folk-pop of his best-known work. Recorded and mixed live to two track in four days, T-Bone Burnett is subtle but strong, with a warm, natural acoustic sound that’s gentle but surprisingly full-bodied, and the production is the perfect match for the songs, especially on the beautiful “River of Love,” which is among Burnett’s finest moments on record.

Backed by a superb acoustic band (including David Hidalgo, Jerry Douglas, Byron Berline, and Jerry Scheff), Burnett’s vocals are in superb form here, and while the album is a bit short on top-shelf T-Bone originals (half the album’s songs are either covers or collaborations), what is here is compelling and listenable.

T-Bone Burnett in many ways sounds like a casual project sandwiched between Burnett’s “real” albums, but one listen confirms it’s still the work of a major talent.

– Mark Deming

Texas native T Bone Burnett is celebrated for his production efforts on the behalf of Gillian Welch, Counting Crows, and Elvis Costello.

His solo albums released in the ’80s and early ’90s on Warner Brothers and Columbia didn’t sell, but they generated a fair share of mostly positive press (doubters are put off by the righteous air of some of his songs).

This self-titled country-folk gem from 1986, however, is as good as anything in Burnett’s extensive oeuvre, even if few people have heard it. Exceptional originals (the ought-to-be-classics “River of Love” and “I Remember”) are expertly sequenced with faultlessly chosen covers (Tom Waits’s “Time,” Bob Neuwirth’s “Annabelle Lee,” the country standard “Poison Love”). Sidemen David Hidalgo and Dobro virtuoso Jerry Douglas shine without showboating and Burnett has never sounded so guileless and relaxed.

-Steven Stolder
