So... for those who love Halloween, you will notice the way I mashed up some song titles from today's shuffle into a Halloweeny sounding "Cobwebs and Twisted Dry Bones" subtitle for this shuffle. For those who dislike Halloween, there are no real Halloween-themed songs in this shuffle.
"Ballad of Treason" by Abigail Washburn from City of Refuge
The amazing Abigail Washburn with another fine song from her City of Refuge album which we have been featuring of late.
"Keep Sweeping Cobwebs off the Moon" by Victoria Williams from Sings Some Ol' Songs
Here is Victoria Williams' remake of a hit song from the late 1920s.
"Old Postcards" by Amelia White from Old Postcards
How about we present the title track from the latest album from East Nashville's own Americana icon - the incredible Amelia White!
"Мексиканские напевы" by Orera from 1970
And why yes, I think we will present some Mexican Tunes performed by a Georgian Folk/Jazz band. And yes, that is Georgia the former (although at the time of this recording it wasn't former) Soviet republic. This is awesome stuff.
"(I'm Not In) Prison" by The Jayhawks from The Jayhawks (aka The Bunkhouse Album)
I really can't help myself, when I go into a thrift store, I just have to take a look at the CD bins. Last weekend, I had to make some returns, and I left with some clothes and the debut album (1986-87) by The Jayhawks.
"Who Woulda Thunk It?" by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik from Punishing the Myth
Grant Peeples doing a Greg Brown song? Why yes I will take that.
"Same River Twice" by Matt King from Raw
Another Nashville artist. Matt King with a song from his album Raw.
"Dry Bones" (Acoustic Noisetrade Exclusive) by Heath McNease from Fort Wayne (songs inspired by the film)
Heath McNease sometimes does hip-hop, somethings does indie/folk, and somethings does what ever he wants... He does them all very well, and this acoustic arrangement from his Fort Wayne project (film/album) is a good example.
"Twisted Kinda" by Sidestreet Reny from Tonal Tonics and Musical Elixers
Today we finish up the week with another superb track from this album by Sidestreet Reny.
