Dave and Jimmie Dale
Back to what you would expect on these pages today after yesterday's post.
We are off to St Lukes tonight to see Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and I am quite excited about it.
I'm not sure that I've ever seen Dave as a solo artist although I did see him as part of the Blasters at the Renfrew Ferry which was one of the best concerts that I've ever attended.
I've definitely not seen Jimmie Dale solo but I did see him performing with The Flatlanders at the Arches.
They teamed up to produce the album Downey to Lubbock, Downey being Dave's Californian home town and Lubbock the Texan home of Jimmie.
I don't have the album yet but suspect that may well change come tonight.
Until then here are both of them with solo numbers.
Dave Alvin - Rio Grande
Jimmie Dave Gilmore - White Freightliner Blues
