Tim Dunlop has a nice post up on Gillian Welch and the sadly underrated David Rawlings. I’m particularly pleased he mentions ‘I Dream A Highway’ which is an extraordinarily stunning piece of work. You should have it on your iPod.
Go read his post and the article he links to.
By the way, today (which should be Tuesday when you read this) there is quite a batch of intriguing new CD’s coming out. REM, Helmet, Fatboy Slim, John Denver, Tom Waits, Everclear’s greatest hits (well, I like them) and the world’s best unknown band; Hem.
Looks like a good day to blow a chunk of change.
You did know I was kidding about the John Denver one, right?
