“Telephone” The Morning Pages (Lady Gaga)

Posted on November 18, 2010

Brooklyn roots-rockers The Morning Pages illustrate just how far a Macbook with iLife and a YouTube channel will get you in this world. Catchy country-rock groove that I would actually listen to on the way to work.

“The Weight” Travis (The Band)

The Band has been on my internal playlist a lot this week. Here’s Travis doing a great cover of  “The Weight.”

“Wild Horses” Flying Burrito Brothers (Rolling Stones)

Posted on December 02, 2009

And we’re back! Sorry for the lapse in posts. We moved into a new home and unpacking boxes isn’t the only thing I’ve been putting off. Now back to the show…

Maybe it is the cold, dreary weather over the last two days. But for whatever reason, I’ve been digging on Gram Parsons, Flying Burrito Brothers and other such “Cosmic American” music as Gram called it. Now we seem to have decided on Alt Country or Americana. Whatever it is, I like it.

Gram is responsible for evangelizing country music to his rock and folk music friends when country wasn’t cool. What they created is incredible. Probably the most important early rock convert was Keith Richards. The Stones responded with this tune. I think Gram’s melancholy voice brings something that I’ve never heard from Mick Jagger.

“To Love Somebody” Flying Burrito Brothers (The Bee Gees)

Posted on August 28, 2009

It’s something that I hate to admit, but the Bee Gees could actually put together dang good lyrics and melodies. Their arrangements are just atrocious in my opinion. But I digress. The fictionalized “Grand Theft Parsons” was on IFC the other night. When Gram Parsons, pioneer of country rock, died, his road manager Phil Kaufmann stole the body from LAX, drove it to Joshua Tree and set it ablaze to honor his dead friend’s wishes. Phil turned himself in afterwards but was only fined for stealing a coffin – not for stealing the body or burning it in the desert. I guess there wasn’t a law on the books for that. Now that is rock’n'roll. Here’s Gram and the Flying Burrito Brothers Band covering “To Love Somebody.”
