Saturday Lucky Dip

We are going back to 2001 for this week's Lucky Dip - December 2001 to be precise with Uncut's Guide to the Month's Best Music.
One of the best records of that month and indeed that year was surely Time (The Revelator) by Gillian Welch.
It is the only one of her albums which I don't have (yet) which is probably why Elvis Presley Blues jumped out at me.

From one great musical icon to another - ladies and gentlemen I give you Eric Goulden more better known as Wreckless  Eric with Reconnez Cherie taken from If It Ain't Stiff a 1991 compilation
Anyone who rhymes Zodiac with Pac-a-mac must be a 24 carat genius.
For those of you who enjoy a good read can I recommend The Immortal Jukebox where Thom provides a series of well informed and very well written essays on a variety of musical legends including most recently old Wreckless himself
Unlike my blog some are carefully crafted as opposed to just thrown together.

More random nonsense next Saturday

  1. That's interesting...the Welch song.

    I've been obsessing over Alex Chilton's I Wish I Could Meet Elvis in the last few days.

    It says a lot about the man that you could probably do a weeks worth of post on songs about Elvis.
