Americana Music Show producers share their Best of 2015 Picks.
The album version of “GTO” on Kevin Gordon’s Long Gone Time is a full-bore roadhouse blues tune. This version is an acoustic version recorded entirely, three piece band and all, from a compact car. Why? Who knows, but it’s an awesome tune no matter how it’s delivered! Screen clip:
Kevin Gordon Sings “Don’t Stop Me This Time.” This is a great example of his ability to build an emotional wave in a song with very plain language.
Kevin Gordon plays tracks from Long Gone Time and talks about Outsider artists, the story of his father’s car, and his conversation with Brownie Ford. This week I’ve got that brand new album from Corb Lund. I’ve also got that Ted Hawkins tribute album and the debut from Cicada Rhythm. Plus more new music from the Turnpike Troubadours, Jim Lauderdale, Nocona, Magnolia Collective, Shemekia Copeland, Jason Heath & The Greedy Souls, and Bottle Rockets. Plus a have a sneak peek at the upcoming Chris Laterzo album.
Kevin Gordon is my interview guest tonight on the live show to play tracks from Long Gone Time and to talk about his craft. Tune in online to listen!
