My fiancées CD. I heard it because she played it. Now I think it’s one of the best records I ever heard. Not rockabilly. Mostly acoustic ballads. People who like country will like it. Has a great new version of Cold, Cold Heart by Hank Williams on it. Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman Collection.
Another one of my fiancées CDs. Simple bluesy stuff mostly. Very honest music. Has so much pain in it though that I can’t stand listening to it for very long. It’s good to know that quality music like Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman can make the charts next to crap like Marilyn Manson and other negative shit.

Det er forresten en utmerket Cash sound-a-like låt på Baymoreskiva også (+ et par vel så bra Elvis & Jordanaires aktige saker).Savner noe blues her, men for meg har dette ikke vært noe spesielt sterkt bluesår. Nå er i hvert fall jump blues representet med Mike Sanchez og Knockout Greg. Ellers har jeg spilt mye Jerry Lee, men ingen enkeltplate nok til å komme blant de ti beste.
