highway 61 revisited revisited

Posted by gregor on Monday, April 12th, 2010

happy monday! i never thought i would be so happy to be at work as i am today. the wife worked two doubles this weekend so it was me and the raging lunatics all weekend. sure we had some fun, but damn if by about 5 pm yesterday, i had had enough. btw, dont ever google “skeeter eater” when your child is around, it aint pretty. in my defense though, he wanted to see pictures of the bugs that eat mosquitos and wanted to me to google that particular phrase.

found this over the weekend, and as the title suggests it comes from uncut and was put out in 05, i believe. i dont think it was ever for sale, per se, but if you want to buy it in all its cd glory someone is selling it on amazon for 143 bucks.

drive by truckers – like a rolling stone
marc carrol – tombstone blues
paul westerberg – it takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry
richmond fontaine – from a buick 6
willard grant conspiracy – ballad of a thin man
american music club – queen jane approximately
dave alvin – highway 61 revisited
the handsome family – just like tom thumb blues
songdog – desolation row

    very cool… I’ve heard the DBT but don’t think I’ve heard the others. The Westerberg and Richmond Fontaine alone is exciting. And thanks for the heads up on Richmond Fontaine’s live one. Grabbed that!

      back in 1995, i was way addicted to the damon che’s speaking canaries’ songs for the terrestrially challenged. 21 year old me was blow away by its weirdness. listening to it now, its really not all that strange, its just kind of all over the place – in a good way, but young greg was […]
