Talked quite a bit today about a new book I'm reading--Warren Zevon: Desperado of Los Angeles. Very much worth a read. Great stuff.
Today's show, partly inspired by the book, went like this...
1) Bob Dylan; Baby I'm in the Mood for You; Sidetracks (I'd mean to start the show with this one, but technical problems led me to a pretty darn good replacement).
2) Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin; Ruby Tuesday; Colvin & Earle
3) Terry Allen; Old Friends; This One's for Him
4) Greg Brown; Good Morning Coffee; If I Had Known...
5) Shawn Colvin; Tenderness on the Block; Fat City
6) Jordan Zevon; Studebaker; Insides Out
7) Rachel Stamp; Carmelita; Hurry Home Early: The Songs of Warren Zevon
8) Vitamin String Quartet; I Was in the House When the House Burned Down; The String Quartet Tribute to Warren Zevon: Dad, get me out of this!
9) Redbird; Ships; Redbird
10) Robert Earl Keen; Laughing River; The Rose Hotel
11) Iris Dement; Fifty Miles of Elbow Room; Infamous Angel
12) James McMurtry; Paint by Numbers; Too Long in the Wasteland
13) Warren Zevon; My Ride is Here; My Ride is Here
