Tabu Ley and Franco - Volume Two

    I know it's several days later than I usually post my comps, so I hope the total awesomeness of Tabu Ley Rochereau and Franco overcomes any disappointment resulting from the delay.  I should also note that the first Tabu Ley-Franco comp is still up.

More Jim Lauderdale

      Here's Disc Two of my Jim Lauderdale compilation.  As I mentioned last week, Disc Two features more of his bluegrass material.   I like this stuff quite a bit, but I must confess I like his honky-tonk stuff just a little more (ymmv).  Unfortunately, most of his earlier albums are out of print - though some of them are available cheaply as used cds (like Whisper, Every Second Counts, and Pretty Close to the Truth).  However, you can get his dynamite debut Planet of Love new (though not as an mp3 download).

Download both discs

Jim Lauderdale - Country Strongman

    When I was younger, I never understood why it took some artists/bands so long between records.  I'm a little (I said little :) wiser now and recognize some of the things that can get in their way.  Still, I maintain my admiration for the artists who consistently put out quality albums.  Case in point - the prolific Mr. Jim Lauderdale, who has put out 19 albums since 1991.  And if that wasn't enough, he's a highly respected Nashville songwriter who also tours pretty frequently.  Disc one is mostly his honky-tonk stuff while next week's disc two focuses more on his bluegrass recordings.

Give More Power Pop to the People - Volume Two

        So is it just me or is Bill Lloyd's Set to Pop the perfect song to start a power pop comp (it's off the album of the same name, btw)? Volume Two of Give More Power Pop to the People is now available, so I'll let you decide.
