I've been going through a funny old year musically. A strange combination of Beck's latest and The Cramps back catalogue threw me down a musical path that has taken in country, alt-country, some folk, The Stones and The Faces, Fleetwood Mac and Springsteen, and stuff that has a similar flavour. A lot of stuff where the main ingredient is the song, and it's a song that primarily can be played on an acoustic guitar. Not unusual for this place then, but not the usual for me over the last couple of decades.
So yes, Gram Parsons, Cowboy Junkies, Elvis Presley, Elvis Costello (King Of America), Maria Mckee, The Stones, Rumours, Miranda Lambert, Dwight Yoakam, Tindersticks, Roddy Frame, Bruce (especially Nebraska and Tunnel Of Love), Wilco and Ryan Adams, Johnny Cash and Kristofferson. A lot of music that I already owned, grew up with and a lot of stuff that has been new to me too.
