Strand of Oaks, "Goshen '97". I've been hooked on HEAL since the first time I heard this song.

Yes!!!!!! I cannot stress enough how fantastic this guy's music is. He is a mid-late 50's insurance adjuster from central Arkansas who does music kinda on the side. "Blue Mountain" recorded a couple of his songs and the musicians who play with him are top notch...John Paul Keith, Matt Patton, Al Gamble, Jimbo Mathus. You can go itunes and buy all 3 of his records and I implore you to do so if you like that song. Jim Mize should be a superstar on this board.

The Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset" is sometimes referred to as the most beautiful song in the English language. I don't know about that but it's also widely considered to be the best song ever written about London and that's probably true. I assume everybody's heard it but perhaps you haven't really listened to it, at least not in a long time. Well worth the 3 minutes.

Jackson Browne gave this tune proper treatment on the Ray Davies tribute album released a couple years ago. Amazing song, thanks for the reminder.

Can we aim for under 4 minutes? I'd really like to listen to all of these but there's going to be a lot of music here (on top of all the music around here generally) and at up to 9 minutes a pop it gets to be unwieldy.

You completely misunderstand what I said and what i meant. For starters, perhaps you can tell me where i said that any song was too long.

if it's good, it's good. length shouldn't really factor in to it, aside from availability of listening time.

I have listened to a shit ton of different versions of this over the weekend, started by the Jeff Beck/Aerosmith/Metallica wig out from a RnRHOF induction (Beck's I think). Apart from the Johnny BurDette version, this is my favourite. I'm a bit in love with Imelda May at present, as anyone who saw my half drunken farcebook postings from Saturday would have noted.



^^^ this is good too.




Here's the original version from 1951.

I've never taken a pissbreak during a DBT show but if I had it would have been during Dancing Ricky.

Really liked those Wussy songs, especially "Teenage Wasteland". I'll be checking that album out. Thanks, Duke and Cortez.

The late great Steve Goodman. Sometimes a song just grabs a hold of you, gets inside of you and never lets go and never leaves. I'm not really sure why this is one of those for me, but it sure is. Extra bonus: a brief glimpse of the charismatic amazing human being Goodman was for his way too brief life.

Wussy has been recommended to me for years but I never got around to checking them out until they came to Chapel Hill this summer. When I saw them it made me wonder why I'd waited so long. To my ears, Attica! is up there with Lydia Loveless' Somewhere Else as my favorite album of 2014 with Israel Nash's Rain Plans also vying for a spot. Before seeing them live, a friend of mine sent me a clip of "Teenage Wasteland" from this KEXP performance. I've posted about this band (and record) in the New Music Recommendations thread (same for Israel Nash) but I'm guessing folks must not check that thread very often.
