My Tunebox.

AllTheSongsThatFit
UnderAWarblyVoicedSkyVille


Here are the tunes at the top rotation at the moment...

New Tune!....Aside... The Weakerthans are gone now...And somehow I think this tune is a great one to remember them by...It's got everything in terms of the lost and longing, going both forwards and backwards...And how can you not dig a line like 'In love with love and lousy poetry' anyway?...




Tupelo Honey... Is this my favourite Van Morrison tune?...Of course not....And I know, for sure, that it is not one of his...But, still, there is something about it that goes beyond where the melodically similar 'Crazy Love' gets to...And then there's the fact that Ronnie Montrose (yes, Ronnie Freaking Montrose!) played guitar and contributed a backing vocal to the San Francisco studio version...




CrashOnTheLevee... E's there doing the hard stuff...Actually pretty proud of my acoustical guitar bashing here...





Pocahontas...It's Neil, of course, re-worked  a little into a kinda/sorta anti-Harper protest tune.

All the Jukebox Tunes we have up at the moment can be found (and downloaded if you want)....Here.
And, don't forget....This December's super special 'Advent Juke' is only six three two weeks away!

Been meaning to suggest Luther Wright and the Wrong's "Guitar Picking Martyrs" to you and the Rockin' Immunologists. Just about as enthusiastic as music can get.

Will do.

Lately we've been digging flying around to....Get this....Rancid!


And I've found a new bunch of young punks called Th'Rattletrap that I really dig from, of all places, Sioux Falls South Dakota.

Check them out (and wait for the guitar break from the girl kid at 2'15"...It just slays me)...

....Here.

Nice Ross!

Thanks sd--

One of the coolest things that anybody has said to me recently came from one of littler e's young friends who said she liked my Pocahontas almost as much as Neils.

I think she was just trying to make me feel good.

But, still...

Saw the CBC documentary,Searching For Sugarman and ran out to buy Rodrigez's CC

An amazing talent. Yes he is better than Bob Dylan
