Somehow accidentally learned today that there is a Mandy Moore cover of "Willin'", and I'm just saying I do not believe her when she sings that she has driven every kind of rig that has ever been made. Linda Ronstadt however remains undefeated.

That is my favorite track off of Heart Like a Wheel. My favorite track off of an album that is full of tracks that would be my favorite tracks on any other album.

GOOD MORNING

As I understand it, he had not been in the best of health for a while. I love his music and was playing a lot of it today: Church Street Blues, some of the Grisman stuff, the New South stuff. What a giant. I wonder who's getting the guitar.

What a giant. The Pizza Tapes album with him and Jerry on it is loose and fun.

Ain't got half a what you thought you had

Just discovered Michael Hurley, just scratchin the surface so far but this song is an early standout for me. not sure how i'd never dug into him before, i've loved Yo La Tengo's cover of Griselda for years, but for some reason had never looked into the original

Can anybody recommend me stuff like Redd Volkaert plays here:

I love the sparse, three-piece arrangement, the standup bass, the almost-constant guitar noodling.

That's a bit of a tricky niche since afaik Redd's the only guy out of the Don Kelley stable that tries to sing at all. Don't quite know what you're looking for so don't know what to recommend. Might want to give the Time Jumpers a shot?
Guthrie Trapp is also out of that school but doesn't sing. Hell of a guitar player tho.

A lot of Doc Watsonís stuff follows that formula pretty close.

I realize I'm about 60 years late to the party but drat Willie Nelson owns. I just got some nice (for me) headphones and Stardust is a treat to listen to.

I'm extremely lucky and privileged that the 2nd biggest disappointment/sadness due to COVID was Peck's show being cancelled in late March 2020

His version of Fancy gives me goosebumps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaYSSQelQ1g

He canceled his Orlando show back in 2019, shortly after I heard "Dead of Night" for the first time and became an instant fan. I hope he tours here in 2022.

That's great news cause I'm gonna need something to dislodge these from my head. I am the exact age to have heard all of these hundreds of times as a kid and then to have not thought about them for 25 years and it hits really hard.
