Generally those freebie record company compilation cds are very hit-and-miss -- stuff you love jammed up against stuff you hate, at least in my experience. But...this time through I grabbed a New West Records collection of NPR "World Cafe" live selections, and with a couple of a handfuls of my favorites (Buddy Miller, Steve Earle, Old 97's, Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell, The Flatlanders, Tom Morello, Mark Olson & Gary Louris, and more), it was hard to go wrong. I might even give this one a second spin..
Mamas and Grandmamas love you
'Cause that's all they know how to do
But you never planned on those bombs in the sand
Or sleeping in your dress blues.
Bow your heads and pray, xo.
This is brilliant, to be sure.

I had an expensive day at Record Store Day last weekend...but didn't make it there in time to grab one of three copies of the vinyl Dark Star. But I was there in plenty of time to empty my wallet.

of WBGO fm since I've been spending a LOT of time in cars lately and they broadcast in my local market, as well as online at www.wbgo.org. If you fancy a jazz fix and can pry yourselves away from the Dead channel on SiriusXM or gdradio.com they are a reliable fix. Even heard them track a selection from the recent David Bromberg/Levon Helm collaboration during the Blues hour (3-4pm ET) as a nod to Levon.
Just making a suggestion. If your mother doesn't like it tell her to write her Congressman...
Badger, I hadn't heard of them either, saw them opening for Drive-By Truckers last fall. They came out playing "Hold On" ... I was dancing almost immediately and did not stop until they left the stage, which is saying something for these old bones. And I walked away with a memento: something frisbee'd from the stage to the crowd at the end of the show -- a setlist written on a paper plate, ended up in my hands.
