I’ve just bought my second ‘country’ album!
Ooooh that's a good one too
She seems unaffected by age.
I’ve got to give a listen to “goin back to Harlan”
Photo is 1990 press release when she was still with Reprise label.
That's a real good album but it's not exactly "country" like Merle and Buck. It's designed to catch crossover fans (which is cool).
If you like it, the next step is to check out Emmylou's 1970s "hot band" work which is some of my favorite stuff - Luxury Liner, Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and so on.
Fine music, and all country.
Can we just post links to get TC to like more country music now? That sounds fun. I can't imagine anyone not liking this:
(If you don't like it, you shut your dirty mouth)
Hey there, Tokyo! If you like Emmy Lou, here she is a long time ago with a young man who was not with us for very long due to his personal choices.
RotGA has been on my personal list of top 10 songs since I first heard it.
I just read Chris Hillman's autobiography. His life intertwined with Parsons' for several years. CH has several insights that were new to me.
Yeah, that's why I used the inverted commas.
My other 'country' album in Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. Also discovered here in TDPRI. Various variations on "Too diverse for country, too country to be rock / Too country for the rock crowd and too heavy for the country folks," etc. in different reviews.
Oh! I just realised I actually have three, as I bought Steve Earle's J.T. the other day too. That probably doesn't need the inverted commas. TDPRI again too...
And I have other stuff too, if I think about it. Some on the Fender: The Golden Age companion CD for example. And I came across that book via TDPRI. Man, you folk...
Consider my mouth shut (but my keyboard active)...
If your starter is Emmy Lou, you probably won't go wrong. Listen to the trio work with Dolly and Linda Ronstadt.
Yeah, I've listened to this. Again, it never grabbed me. Sorry. I might try again though. I think the library has this.
I am curious. Are you Pax or are you Dean?
Country is a branch of the tree that this comes from.... or sumpin' like that. Chris Stapleton before his electrification.
Collect them all, trade with your friends.
I'd like to think of it as "Making a Difference...one soul at a time". ;-)
I love it all!
Give me Emmy Lou, maybe with Mark Knopfler as a sidekick
Give me some Pretenders with Chrissie Hynde.
Give me some Shania. Give me some Linda. Some Alison Krauss.
Give me Jimi, give me The Who, some Tom Petty.
Great artists make great music and their classification is irrelevant!
I love it all!
Good music is good music. I'm not too into the labels, but if there is something that grabs you about Wrecking Ball and Car Wheels, you DO have a little country in you somewhere. You should also check out Lucinda Williams' albums prior to Car Wheels: Lucinda Williams, and Sweet Old World (not "This Sweet Old World" which is a weird re-recording of the classic original).
Another inbetweener "indie" flavored album that I like a lot is Whiskeytown's second record Strangers Almanac (and their first one Faithless Street). But there are lots of others. Get on Spotify!
