Heaven or Hell 9
Well that was rhe most one-sided contest since the last North Korean presidential election.
Sincere apologies to the Elgins only Alyson saved them from a 12-0 drubbing.
In retrospect it was grossly unfair to put them (or anyone else for that matter) up against Curtis Mayfield.
The scores on the doors are now Hell 6 Heaven 2 . I think that I have just about enough material to make it first to 10 the winner.
Today we have two songs from recent albums for you to choose from. Hopefully it will be a wee bit closer that last week.
In the heavenly corner we have Heaven Ain't Going Nowhere the opening track of Ghosts of West Virginia the latest album by Steve Earle and the Dukes which examines the role of coal mining in Appalachia and which features songs from the play Coal Country in which Earle stars.(Rolling Stone)
In the hellish corner we have the equally powerful St Cloud by Waxahatchee where Katie Crutchfield creates a vivid modern classic of folk and Americana .(Pitchfork)
Heaven or Hell, the choice is yours.
