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.

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
