that particular what
Buddy Guy & Junior Wells Blues Band - Live from Newport Folk Festival, 1968 (Wolfgang's Vault)
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & the Cairo Gang - The Whole Show of the World (out 3/23)
The Unthanks - Here's the Tender Coming (also out 3/23)
Various Artists - Mississippi Records Tape TLC Vol. 1: Men With Broken Hearts (ROOT BLOG)
All the above is top notch, especially that Buddy Guy/Junior Well concert, but Mississippi Records Tapes are what it's all about. That particular what is obscured, but they are nonetheless all about it. This edition is comprised of country music at the unknowing verge of Monty Python arrived at by the dustiest of psychic trails. Happy Friday, fellow cowpokes of the abyss! Accept any of the hangtooth hardlegs depicted above your avatar and yodel your heart into those starry skies that do nothing but take and take and then disappear.
