The Everly Brothers - "I'm On My Way Home Again" (1969)



Harmonies from the Everlys, guitar from the legendary Clarence White -- what more could you ask for?

Well, I guess you could ask for Gram Parsons -- supposedly he too plays on the track...

re: Long haired hippie redneck freaks -- that is to say, Country-Rock


Back to the original post which is more than a year old but WTF. Ive been in a Flatlanders kick for 3 or 4 months and you get about half the credit. And while I like The Odessa Tapes and the recording quality is much better than for More A Legend Than A Band I prefer the older release to Odessa Tapes on pretty much every song they have in common. The Odessa Tapes songs are slower and more tentative and just not as tight even if the sound is crisper. In particular I think that One Road More is much better on Legend because of the frenetic pacing and the speed it picks up. But More A Legend Than A Band is just a great album and I'd love the hell out of Odessa Tapes without it to compare to.

OK, with some comparison listening it sounds like the bass player on Odessa Tapes is throwing out an anchor and trying to slow down the music on the entire album. Sigh.

But anybody who hasn't listened to the Flatlanders and is interested in anything remotely like early alt. country should give them a listen. Really good stuff.

I just today learned of the April passing of Jesse Winchester, the Bossier-born singer-songwriter.



He wrote one of my favorite songs about the South:

"Mississippi You're on My Mind"


Winchester's 1970 debut album (produced by Robbie Robertson, with Rick Danko, Richard Manuel and Levon Helm playing) is widely considered a classic of country-rock.



"Yankee Lady"

"The Brand New Tennessee Waltz"

"Biloxi"

A guy that I don't think gets near enough credit for country rock is Rick Nelson and his Stone Canyon Band. His 1970 slbum 'In Concert at The Troubadour' is damn good. Future Poco and Eagle Randy Meisner on bass and harmony.
I Shall Be Released
Come On In


One of my all time favorite groups!

Absolutely! Leon, with the help of modern sound recording made that music sound like it was sposed to sound. I had that album three times. Now have it on CD, from CD Universe.

I can't say enough about that album. I found an import of an expanded version of the album and it does not disappoint. I absolutely love his version of I Shall Be Released. And Meisner is sooooo underrated.

Rio Grande (1971)



Mouse And The Traps of Tyler Texas were one of the great garage bands, writing and recording classics like the Dylan ripoff/homage "A Public Execution" and a special favorite of mine, the wistful "Sometimes You Just Cant Win".

As garage rock waned MATT guitarists Randy "Mouse" Weiss and David Stanley formed a country-rock band called Rio Grande. Teaming with producer Dale Hawkins (from Goldmine, LA, he'd cut the original version of "Suzy-Q" in 1957, with Shreveport's James Burton on rockabilly guitar), they released one album for RCA. It quickly sank into obscurity and has never been released on CD.

The pedal steel guitar of Bobby Tuttle is a highlight of these rare tracks

Rio Grande - "Me and my Wife"

Rio Grande - "So Good To Be Free"

I suppose this is as much power pop as country rock, but I'll post it here anyway

Dwight Twilley Band - "Chance To Get Away" (1977)
