Burnt Offerings 17
Well it was always going to happen I suppose.I'm just a bit surprised that I got to Burnt Offerings 17 before I came to a CD with less than 3 artists featured before.
Actually the Jolly Ranchers from Loredo, Texas are the only ones who have never featured before and after listening to this you can probably see why. Here is their version of Country Roads from their 2003 album 12 Gauge. I think it and Highway 99 can be downloaded free should you feel the urge
The Jolly Ranchers - Country Roads
Ryan Adams and Beth Orton have both appeared on these pages but never together. I never knew until now that they were an item at one stage
I now find that he has written at least three songs about her You Will Always be the Same, For Beth and English Girls Approximately.
He didn't write this
Ryan Adams & Beth Orton - Brown Sugar
For my third choice I debated whether to feature someone who I have posted before or to pick someone from a previous Burnt Offering who hasn't graced these pages.
I chose the later and so her is Canadian alternative hip hop artist Richard Terfry better known as Buck 65 whom I first discovered via Andy Kershaw's radio shows
Buck 65 - Drawing Curtains
Three never before featured acts next Wednesday

Didn't Ryan Adams work with Beth on Concrete Sky too? Memory might be faulty on that. Buck 65 I can take in small bursts, but I will definitely be looking further into the work if the Jolly Ranchers if their version of Country Roads is anything to go by.ReplyDelete
Can't find a free download for those albums anywhere. They don't even appear to have a website, just a facebook page. Can't even find anywhere to BUY their music! ;-)ReplyDelete
I can copy them for you like RolDelete
If it's any consolation Country Roads is probably their best number
That's a kind offer, but your caveat leads me to think I'd probably never get round to listening to them... as with 30% of my record collection... so I won't put you out. Thanks, anyway.Delete
