Dave Alvin
"Public Domain Songs from the Wild Land" 2000





















One of the great songwriters and performers but not much known to
larger audiences is Dave Alvin. Here is a 16 songs cover album where
Alvin pays respect to his influences. All songs, are



John Hiatt w/Loudon Wainwright III

Two songs from a compilation lp/cd From Hell To Obscurity. In 1986
John Hiatt did a tour in Europe together with Loudon Wainwright III.
The tour precedes the Bring the Family album of Hiatt which he
recorded with Ry Coode, Jim keltner and Nick Lowe. During the tour
Hiatt introduced Wainawright, while Wainwright introduced Hiatt and at
the end of the shows, they usually did a few songs together. Together
the couple recorded two songs, the old Smokey Robinson song My Girl
and Marty Robbins' At the End of a Lonely Day.

I saw the couple twice, in Amsterdam and Utrecht. Both shows were
excellent. As an example of what the two of them were able to, here
are the two cover versions from the compilation lp/cd which contains
further B-sides of other artists.

Cordelia's Dad
"Cordelia's Dad" 1990
"How Can I Sleep?" 1996






















Cordelia's Dad is a band from Northampton, Massachusetts that combines
folk and punk rock influences and was instrumental in the creation of
the genre later to be dubbed "No Depression". The band formed in 1987
and was active until 1998, when the members relocated to different
parts of the country. After releasing an album of older material in
2002 the band has reunited in 2007 for their twentieth anniversary.
