Saturday music

| 6 Comments

Wish there was a better version of that Drive-By Truckers song. The studio version is just fantastic. I offer a little CrabAppleLane musical progression this morning as Gustav approaches. I needed something to cheer me up this morning as I prepare to go into work. Enjoy.

Alison Krauss & Union Station -> Drive-By Truckers -> Gillian Welch & David Rawlings -> Old Crow Medicine Show -> Tracktor Beam

The fantastic song below inspired this comment from someone on YouTube:

god his voice is heavenly....omg i would so trap him in my closet and make him sing for food.

Tracktor Beam - High Dice Blues

It is wonderful to see this kind of music in such young hands.

5 days until football season ...

Quote of the Day
If I ever get my hands on
A dollar again
I'm going to hold on to it
As my only friend
Tracktor Beam, High Dice Blues

Blog of the day here.

Quote from said blog: "And so it came to pass, that the bands of European bluegrass did converge on the French town of La Roche-sur-Foron, where they entertained the populace for three nights and three days. And the Lord looked down and saw that the people were pleased. And so he was pleased. So much so that he sent the best sunshine one could wish for."

What does Tractor Beam mean? That singer was Willy Wilson from the OCMS. But don't tell me -- you already knew that.

Not sure what a Tracktor Beam is except maybe a play on Tractor Beam.

Yes, that's Willie Watson of OCMS, and I knew that. That's how I came across TB.

Excuse me. His name is Watson. I love this group and listen to those five pieces all the time. Four actually; I don't care for the one about cocaine.

I can't even imagine everything you're going through right now. All they're talking about on the news is Gustav. I suppose if New Orleans must evacuate, you probably will too. I'm thinking about you all the time now.

And thanks for this music, especially Tracktor Beam. Never heard it before.

Thanks, Marie. I have a lot of concerns this time.
