    Not quite country, but I just remembered to add in here that a couple weeks ago I got to go into the studio and watch John Fogerty and Dawes record a song together. The boys were pretty nice. Young, but sort of in awe of John. And rightfully so.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO. Earl Scruggs just died today. I'm like about to cry. I can't believe I couldn't go to his show in November. This is going to be one of my biggest musical regrets of my life. FUCK.

    It's official: The hipsters that read our local alt weekly and vote in the music awards have no idea what country music sounds like; The Dive Poets won "Best Country Artist"!

    Jimmy Dickens
    Rhonda Vincent

    7:30 – 8:00
    Ricky Skaggs
    Troy Cassar-Daley

    Also convinced my folks that we need to go to the Railroad Revival Tour, so we'll be seeing Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson and Band of Horses (weird, right?) down in San Pedro.

    I saw photos of Elizabeth Cook and figured she'd be a Faith Hill type, but her latest EP has a cover of the Velvet Underground on it. And she does a damn good, stripped down, twangy take on Jesus, I'd say.

    I loved the one time I went to Nashville. Even the tourist trap honky-tonks have killer players making ends meet so they can finance their original music. I went to Robert's and saw this (really good) old school country cover band they featured this kick ass fiddle player named Josh Hedley (he has toured with Justin Townes Earle and does great solo stuff) and a bad-ass young guitar player named JD Simo. And that was on a Monday night. And here is some video:

    Somewhere on this board I have spoken about my love for Joe Ely. I like Jimmie Dale Gilmore a lot too. Butch Hancock was a great songwriter though the one album I have of his is sort of dull.

    I once attended a Jimmy Dale Gilmore concert (very very early in his solo career) which had 6 people in attendance. Literally 6 people. This would have been some time in the mid 80s I think. It was really uncomfortable, but he gave it a professional effort. Years later I was posting about it on some alt-country message board and JDG's manager was also on the board (unbeknownst to me) and called that show I attended the lowest of the low in the early days.

    I don't know The Odessa Tapes at all. I have More a Legend Than a Band which is really great:

    In any other circumstance, that title would be hyperbole, but in the case of the Flatlanders, it's the simple truth. Although their only commercial release during their nearly four-year existence was an eight track on the tacky Plantation label, bandleaders Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock went on to become pioneers in alternative country, directly influencing bands ranging from Uncle Tupelo to Ely disciples the Clash. This 1990 reissue gives that eight track a proper digital release for the first time ever (minus two weaker tracks, covers of the country standards "Hello Stranger" and "Waiting for a Train"), plus four previously unreleased tracks recorded during the same March 1972 sessions. the Flatlanders didn't fit in at all in early-'70s Nashville, both because their music is too weird (Gilmore, a devout Hindu, contributes a song of devotion called "Bhagavan Decreed," and non-musician Steve Wesson contributes musical saw to the proceedings) and, frankly, too country. Tunes like the heartbreaking "Tonight I'm Gonna Go Downtown" have much more in common with Lefty Frizzell and Jimmie Rodgers than the countrypolitan glop of the era. The percussionless, all-acoustic instrumentation is akin to traditional bluegrass, but the gentle, easygoing vibe (tempos barely even break into a trot on the entire album) are much more akin to mellow hippie folk-rock ŕ la Pearls Before Swine. Every song is a small gem, with "Downtown" and Gilmore's career highlight, "Dallas," being the very best of a uniformly fabulous lot. The entire '90s alt-country movement can trace its genesis to these powerful and underappreciated songs.
