For me, this evokes strong memories of the summer of '77, on the beach at Ocean City, MD.
In heavy rotation that summer, in mono on a Panasonic transistor radio (and we liked it). Those were the days.
Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, The Spy Who Loved Me, Saturday Night Fever, Rumours...
Returning to school that fall the music world was changing... Talking Heads: 77 (and we liked it).

Suprised to see a new Will Oldham album pop on Tidal. To coincide with his new book, Oldham has issued an album of the same name, featuring solo acoustic renditions of 10 songs from his catalog, plus a cover of Richard and Linda Thompson’s “Strange Affair.”

Because of a quirk in TIdal, I had not seen the Palace, The Palace Brothers, Palace Music selections until now.

The search sucks, that is my one beef with Tidal.

Asleep At The Wheel ~ Tribute to Bob Wills (1993, Liberty) It's lots of fun!

Saw this lady last night in a show called Three Woman and The Truth, or TWATT as they pointed out.

Gretchen Peters really impressed me with her songwriting and singing. The song Lowlands actually brought a tear to my eye.

Lowlands

I spend a lot of time here in the lowlands
Mostly keeping to myself
I’ve made a few new friends here in the lowlands
But no one that i really know that well

i come straight home from work and fix my supper
Don’t burn one with my neighbor anymore
Ever since he put that sticker on his bumper
I just turn out the lights and lock the doors

Goddamn it sure got quiet on the high road
As it led us straight down into hell
I don’t know nobody feeling hopeful
I don’t know a soul who’s sleeping well

What do you get when you look at Joe Henry's production work, love Ollabelle, but want to hear something new?
