I've been waiting for that Prine album to come out.  I'll have to find it somewhere soon.

Right now the soundtrack consists of Cardinals, Thrushes, Towhees and Grosbeaks.

New John Prine Tribute album by the Old Crow Medicine show.

John Prine was a guest on Elvis Costello's TV show last week. Still cool, and still a personal favourite of mine.

I recently re-discovered Eva Cassidy who never had a recording contract before she died. She truly had the voice of an angel.

Nils Lofgren, Neil Young's longtime sidekick, is on quite a lot in my house lately (check out his version of Young's "Birds").

A very young Canadian girl, Nicky Yanovsky, finally put out an album at the ripe old age of 16. Nicky has been performing on stage ever since she was 12, singing Ella Fitzgerald style jazz to great acclaim. To hear a 12 year old girl sing scat and do it well was otherworldly. She sang the Olympic theme song ("I Believe") and our National Anthem at this years Olympics in Vancouver.

Most times around the house I have opera on (my recent fave is Anna Netrebko), unless the Big Green Egg is smokin', then it's classic country or 'grass. Somehow 'cue and country are naturals together.

2 weeks ago I hosted for a bbq, about 20 retired geezers who are in my tennis fraternity. I thought the music should be show tunes, easy early 60s top 40 stuff, classical... How wrong I was, because someone discovered my vinyl record collection and we spent the rest of the day listening to everything from the Platters to Bobby Darin to Screaming Jay Hawkins to Zep to Hendrix to Miles (Davis),(Charles) Mingus and (Thelonius)Monk.

I didn't think it was out yet.  I had its release date on my calendar.  I know Patterson Hood from DBT is doing one cover.

Stay dry.
