Hey Pat:

Golf and work, they go together.

Oh, and we're still finding sockets with charred stains on them. And my Vonage router is dead, too.

I have really gained a lot of respect for lightning, which also is a known killer of golfers.

I am really enjoying Mary Chapin Carpenters, "The Age of Miracles." such good accoustic folk...

I really love it!

Anyone else listening to something worth recommending?

Mike

David Rawlings and Gillian Welch did an amazing version of a Dylan song on Prairie Home Companion this weekend.

The show should be posted sometime today on the show's website:

http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/

The song is "Queen Jane Approximately", and it's very very good; it captures the feel of vintage Dylan, but they add so much to it; I think it's part of their touring set, as there are a few fan videos on youtube, but audio quality is ng. The Prairie Home version is worth looking for, and listening to.

Happy Memorial Day!

Thanks, Mac, sounds like it'll be fun to watch!

Have a good rest of the Holiday Weekend.

P.S. Also been listening to Steve Earle, love "Washington Square Serenade" and the "Townes" album.

Mac: very good recommendation I listened to Queen Jane Approximately via the link, it is a great rendition of that Dylan song. It is evocative of a great Marianne Faithful rendition of Madame George, very soulful indeed. Fun factoid: Van Morrison on an Imus radio interview about a year ago, said that though the song is named Madame George, on the record he actually sings Madame Joy, not George, he didn't really explain.

I love the old Bob Dylan songs like Queen Jane from Highway 61 Revisited; great find!

Has Maura ever done a Bob Dylan song? Maybe she can find an obscure Dylan song; not one that has been covered to death.

Ollabelle does a beautiful version of Brokedown Palace. They are playing City Winery on June 7. All you NYC area folks(Bob and Mike) should check out this show.

Definitely. Ace is one of my favorite Dead records. "I lit out from Reno I was trailed by 20 hounds..."

Pat- I checked into the Ollabelle show at City Winery and unfortunately it is all sold out; sounded like a great night. I didn't realize Amy Helm of that band is the daughter of The Band's Levon Helm, great musical heritage there! That night Ollabelle is acting as the house band for 16 musical duets from the Simon & Garfunkel Songbook, the next night all of these performers will be doing that same concert as a fundraiser for music in the NYC Parks at Central Park's SummerStage. Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Aimee Mann, Loudon Wainwright III, Alejandro Escovedo, Ricky Skaggs, etc., etc., will be performing

I, too, am enjoying MCC's latest album. Other relatviely recent albums that are getting a lot of play time lately are Before & After by Carrie Newcomer, Pointing at the Sun by Cheryl Wheeler, How I Learned to See in the Dark by Chris Pureka, Some Strange Country by Crooked Still, The Living Side by Meg Hutchinson and 25 by Patty Larkin (a collection of love songs spanning her 25-year recording career, stripped down with guest vocal contributions by friends she'd made in the folk business). I spend about 90 minutes in the car each day going to and from work, so I have a lot of time to listen to music!
