Saturday! What do you think about self described "gangsta Nancy Sinatra" Lana Del Rey?
I love this footage of Texas bluesman Black Ace. Maybe you will too.
I love this song no matter who's singing it, but Richard Thompson's original is my favorite. Not to mention he's a pretty fine guitar player too. Happy Thursday!
Tonight we go way back to the era of Gatsby and the Victrola. Do you have a favorite old-timey song?
Here's a nice one from folk-blues chanteuse Karen Dalton. In his 1994 book <em>Chronicles: Volume One</em>, Bob Dylan wrote that "Karen had a voice like Billie Holiday and played guitar like Jimmy Reed... I sang with her a couple of times". Good Enough for me.
TV On The Radio's <em>Nine Types of Light</em> was one of my favorite records of last year, and this song is a standout. Did you have a favorite in 2011?
Here's my resolution. And in the same good time vein our sister site Newstalgia has for its Backstage Weekend The Faces with Rod Stewart Live from 1974. What's your resolution this year?
Happy New Year! Here's some Ramones from London 34 years ago tonight.
Man this sh*t is smoking! <a href="http://www.bernardpurdie.com/">Bernard Purdie</a> for president.
Today is the anniversary of Big Star original Chris Bell's death in a tragic car crash. Here's a favorite from that same year.
