Lee Shropshire from Eight O’Five Jive plays tracks from Too Many Men, and talks about their journey into jump blues and being inspired by Ruth Brown. Also on this episode, I’ve got the new blues album from Eilen Jewell and the new country album from Christian Lopez. I’ve also got a time-capsule album from 1973 that’s never been released before and it’s amazing. I’ll be playing another cut from that new Alabama Shakes album and White Morgan covering a classic country song. Plus a whole lot more on this two hour episode.
From the blog
This is the lead track from Mandolin Orange’s Such Jubilee. You won’t find stringband music any more beautiful than this….
Woody Pines self-titled album brings a new swinging, jumping, shuffling vibe to a hillbilly boogie sound.
The Deslondes self-titled album is a country-soul crossover album with sing-along down-tempo shuffling songs that remind me a lot of the Felice Brothers.
Dale Watson’s Call Me Insane is a throwback to his trademark “Ameripolitan” sound, full of honkytonk, outlas country, rockabilly and western swing.
Today is Memorial Day, so I want to take this opportunity to say Thank You to all of the men and women in military service, and especially to all of those who gave their lives to keep us free to be who we want to be.
Country / folk from the Christian Lopez Band, 70’s era country/folk from Vince Matthews and Jim Casey.
My favorite of The Rolling Stones “country”-ish songs…..
Listening to The Kingston Springs Suite by Vince Matthews and Jim Casey is like opening up a time capsule to the early 70’s.
Christian Lopez’ Onward has the earnestness and wide-open view of the world that we haven’t seen since the early days of Paul Simon.
Sundown Over Ghost Town by Eilen Jewell takes her pearls & cowboy boots vibe to Small Town, USA, and gives us a charming, poignant slice of Americana.
