A friend recently (as in 2 days ago) turned me on to Mermaid Avenue, a collaboration between Billy Bragg and Wilco. I guess a few years ago (as in 7 years ago) they got permission from Woody Guthrie's family to record some of his (Guthrie's) unrecorded music.
It's pretty great (as in I can't get enough)**. Pick it up if you get a chance. Also check out Mermaid Avenue, Vol II. Also fantastic.
Josh and Wesley...for some reason, I keep thinking about you guys when I listen to this. Have you heard it? If not, I think you both might like it. I could be wrong though.
*2 posts in 1 day? What am I? Made of time? Well no, of course not, but I am 3 books away from being finished for the semester. Then I'll be made of time. Relaxin' time.
**as in, I was on a roll. I'll stop now.
