Listening the Rain

On the topic of Sturgill covers, I thought I would keep it going because I got this song stuck in my head doing that last post.

I was thinking about posting Long White Lines ever since I read it here, but I can’t find the Buford Abner version anywhere. The Aaron Tipping version is very 90’s country, so…

Man, Sturgill can do a cover. And as good of a guitarist as he is, when he was touring with Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, the Estonian country shredding guitarist was always mentioned. This cover Listening to the Rain (originally by the Osborne Brothers) featured that guitarist pretty well.

Bell Bottom Blues and other blues

Can’t really hit the high notes, but still a pretty good cover.

He can really do a cover. In addition to all the covers on his albums, I love his cover of I Never Go Around Mirrors.

In other Sturgill Simpson info, he did an extensive interview with Steven Hyden about frustrations with the music business and (this might be the writer speculating more than Sturgill) that he might not want to tour after this current tour.

Tell me Spotify

I guess we could/should cruise into some Irish Not On Spotify songs. I haven’t researched why, but I am upset that my favorite Tosser’s albums are not on Spotify.

From Communication and Conviction: the Last Seven Years, Buckets of Beer is great, Paper and Pins was included on the cd’s I gave out at my wedding, Seven Drunken Nights and Finnegan’s Wake are classics, and the live version of Irish Rover (can’t find it other than the preview here) is worth playing over and over if only for the intro banter of “All right, you fucks, this is the Irish Rover”.

Every St. Patrick’s day season I would force their version of Tell Me Ma in the rotation, for no else’s enjoyment other than my own.
