Bluegrass Monday #3
Recently Steve Earle was featured playing Reggae. Today he turns his hand to Bluegrass
In 1999 he teamed up with Bluegrass legends The Del McCoury Band to release the Grammy nominated album The Mountain.
Whereas it was musically a marriage made in heaven it looks as though there may well have been personality clashes. It is hard to think that Steve and the conservative clean cut Del shared the same political views.
Indeed Del's criticism of Steve's on stage profanity led to the somewhat cryptic comments thrown in at the end of Until The Day I Die on his 2000 follow up album Transcendental Blues.
More Bluegrass and no profanity next Monday.

Not my cup of tea, but I'm constantly amazed at quality and breadth of music you pick up on your travels....ReplyDelete
Confession time JC - not all the music featured is from CHarity shops. Started off that way but I now include anything in the collection.Any recent charity shop acquisitions usually get a speedy airingDelete
