Neil Young - After the Gold Rush (Live) [Official Audio]

The new Neil Young release 'Carnegie Hall - Official Bootleg’ is amazing.

The arrangement on this is very different from what we're used to but it's Neil and his piano and it's pretty awesome.

I was fortunate enough to have fallen in with a gang of Neil Young fans in high school right around the time of this recording and I've never reformed.

X - 4th of July

A few weeks ago I posted Dave Alvin doing this song.

Here's the X version of Dave's song.

I love this.

Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down · Willie Nelson

Not too many covers of this song, Kris's and Johnny's versions are the best known, but Wille really kills this.

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.
