Tupelo Honey Playlist 6/14/11

Steve Dawson has been a favorite producer of mine for some time. The stuff he's done with Deep Dark Woods and Jim Byrnes is near perfection. I love his ability to coax out a sound without undermining it. His record label, Black Hen Music, has some of the cream of this genre. Steve has also released 5 solo albums and several as a member of a band. Despite his impressive resume I think he might of just released the best record he or his label has ever done.

Steve's new solo CD is called Nightshade. While I've enjoyed all of his albums to date this one is by far my favorite. It's one of those discs that's enjoyable from beginning to end with absolutely no throw-away songs.

I highly recommend that if you don't know Steve Dawson or Black Hen Music you check 'em out. But even more of a recommendation: go out and give Nightshade a spin, I think you'll be impressed.

Till Next Week
