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
ever since I Long White Lines 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
, the Metamodern Sounds in Country Music Estonian country shredding guitarist was always mentioned. This cover Listening to the Rain (originally by the Osborne Brothers) featured that guitarist pretty well.

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 e
xtensive 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.

Hilarious story from an SR-71 pilot.

When collecting as many songs as I could for a Saint Patrick’s Day DJ season, I came was given this album by Dessie O’Halloran. Horrible voice, but something about it that very catchy. For years past, Spotify only had a reggae infused version of the first song (which I’m glad I can’t find), and
now it has the album version I first heard:
And apparently I
posted about this dude before.
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.
Communication and Conviction: the Last Seven Years, is great, Buckets of Beer was included on the cd’s I gave out at my wedding, Paper and Pins and Seven Drunken Nights are classics, and the live version of Irish Rover (can’t find it other than Finnegan’s Wake 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.
