Curious covers merge into a family affair of sorts, as writer and reader swap tunes that span the genres from country to metal to folk!
"As it happens, Ed is playing Austin, TX (my current city of residence…in fact, native New Yorker Ed’s current hometown, as well!) November 18, but he’ll be playing a club in S. Austin, and darn the luck, I live in N. Austin."
C'mon, Brad, you make it sound as if South Austin is on the other side of the moon.
It is, admittedly, a different state of mind once you cross over Town Lake... 😂
After two of the busiest and most stressful weeks of work in years, I’m a little late to the party, but this was another fantastic journey, thanks guys!!
I never realized the Chapin musical family tree was so prolific! Really enjoyed the Jen Chaplin song. I’d heard the name, but never listened to her music.
I'll throw this out as well (call it an out-take) an 80's throwback video of Los Lobos doing "Will The Wolf Survive" https://youtu.be/AOmjUnGZg5Q?t=26
HI Brad! Yes, Ramblin Jack lives. I remember Dale McBride. I'll check out "Listening Sessions" for tomorrow's post. Real cool re your mom! Thanks.
Someone compared this week's to golf...almost seemed like chess to me! Well done.
Good stuff, guys!
Usually I sleep from Monday night until Wednesday morning. But not any more. Now I have something to get up for on Tuesdays. Thanks Brad!
Always liked Corb Lund, especially "The Truth Comes Out".
Thanks for hosting Brad, that was fun.
As I said, my primary interest is sharing music that I like, so I'm definitely curious to know, what people do or do not enjoy (I see Brad was not enthused by Hamell on Trial , but I wasn't trying to play _completely_ safe).
Another great Tune Tag. I loved Nick’s methodical approach (as well as his opinion on covers, which I share 100%), and I loved your versatility, Brad, and how quickly you adapted to the rhythm and vibe that Nick was proposing. Great job all round, guys!
Love how you brought BOC into the mix.
Another interesting game.
It was cool to see where your rationale’s aligned, i.e., with the wolf title. And it was cool to see ‘hungry like the wolf’ make an appearance— I like that song.
Yep, there goes Bowie again!
