Tupelo Honey Playlist 3/15/11

Without a doubt the surprise CD of the year is G. Love's Fixin' To Die. The idea of G. Love making Americana is just plane weird, but it works, and it works well. The disc was produced by the Avett Brothers, Scott and Seth. Maybe that's why it came out so good. All I know is, its a joy to hear and it stands up to one of the toughest listening tests: It gets better every time you play it.

Lots of other new stuff worth mentioning... Still really liking North Mississippi Allstars' Keys To The Kingdom, Damon Fowler's Devil Got His Way and Jessica Lea Mayfield's Tell Me.

As far as individual songs Aunt Martha's "No Excuses," Greg Allman's "Just Another Rider," and Cowboy Junkies' cover of "Flirted With You All My Life" will all most likely end up on my "Best of 2011" list.
