My latest charity shop acquisition is Cookahoop the 2003 debut solo album by Cerys Matthews on the Blanco y Negra label.
Recorded during her brief stay in Nashville it is produced by Bucky Baxter of Steve Earle, Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams fame and has Ken Coomer of Wilco on drums.
Most of the songs are her own compositions but I have gone for two that aren't
The opening track Chardonnay is written by Roger Cook and Hugh Cornwall (yes THAT Hugh Cornwall!).
Weightless Again is,as I'm sure you know, by Brett and Renee Sparks aka The Handsome Family and is from their peerless Through the Trees album.
