A Right Couple of Jesses

This week I have had the urge to post some Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter.
Now as every blogger knows it is foolish to ignore such urges.
So with this in mind I looked out Treats a  sampler from Barsuk Records which includes the brilliant Lonely Still and Reckless Burning.
They played ok on the hi-fi but for some strange reason my burning software would not recognise the disc.

Time for Plan B - the only other Jesse Sykes I appear to have is the track The Dreaming Dead from Americana 2004 one of the many splendid Uncut Americana compilations.
And as an added bonus as luck would have it Jesse Malin is also on this CD with Mona Lisa so you are getting two Jesses for the price of one

Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter - The Dreaming Dead

Jesse Malin - Mona lisa


  1. Have seen Jesse Malin on a number of occasions at the Wah Wah Hut and he is thoroughly entertaining, good story teller. In fact he's there again on 2nd December, just decided I'm going.

  2. I've seen him a couple of times Drew but not for a good few years
