The man is one-of-a-kind. I've seen most of his films. There are some films, Naked Lunch included, that are terrific films, but hard to watch.

I want to see if his music is the same...well crafted, but not something I'd want to cover.

Stumbled across Peat and Diesel, great fun, if a bit erm, unusual and probably in need of subtitles. Just bear with the beginning bit

Russian Circles. I've been listening to them loads over the last 12-18 months and massively so since lockdown and while plenty will find the whole instrumental post-metal thing lacking something I love them. Lots going on for a 3 piece too.

Never heard of these guys. About time! All of the albums are available for streaming on Amazon Unlimited (what I have; not sure about just Prime).

It’s a lonely existence being a country music fan. I think this is utterly terrific, especially from about a minute in when he gets going.

I'm with you for the type of country you posted. Musicians writing and performing songs. All good.

But I could never get over the feeling that a lot of modern country sounds pretty much the same. And then I watched this, and felt somewhat vindicated. I don't mean to suggest that there are no good country songwriters anymore. There are. Some very good ones. Just tough to wade through the drivel to get to it.

Yes a lot of it is over produced, cliched rubbish, but as you say there is wheat amongst the chaff. If you’re not already familiar with the likes of Tyler Childers, Stirgil Simpson, Benjamin Tod, Mary Bragg or Jade Jackson I’d recommend searching them out.

I'll do that. Something like this is where Amazon Music Unlimited really pays off.

I see a new playlist coming.

I remember my daughter playing me that around the time.

Playlists made for each. I added all of the Lost Dog Street Band albums to the Benjamin Tod playlist.

I have a hard time with his last name. It means "dead" in German.

Although I’m not a massive Neil Young fan, his version of this old song is just sublime. Love Nicolette Larson’s harmony vocal, moves me every time I hear it.

Latest release from Bruce Springsteen, reunited with The E Street Band. Nothing groundbreaking but I still love it!

i wasn't won over by Western Stars and soon stopped playing it. It has decent enough reviews - maybe I need to give it another go - wouldn't be the first time I ended up rediscovering an album after switching off from it too soon. This sounds oh-so-familiar but... that's OK. I was never a fan but was never negative about him for any reason - I was just listening to other stuff but I was won over when he played Glasto.
