Here’s what I’m checking out from the library’s music collection.
Music to My Ears
Here’s what I’m looking forward to, musically speaking, for the next few weeks.
She’s won 27 Grammys. This collection of classic county covers is her first release in 6 years, ‘bout time.
2017 is shaping up to be as good as 2016 in regard to stellar releases. Here’s what I’m looking forward to, musically speaking, for the next few weeks.
In July of 2015 Emmylou’s friends decided to throw her a party at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. This is the recording of that little shindig.

September has been a treasure trove of CDs releases. Here are a few I'm going to get from the library.
The Beatles – Live at the Hollywood Bowl
The latest Fab Four release is a remastered collection of songs taken from the three concerts they did at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964-65. The disc includes four, never released versions of their tunes.
Bon Iver – 22, A Million
My first Bumbershoot was in 1989. The highlight was Ry Cooder with David Lindley, Nick Lowe and Flaco Jimenez. It was in Key Arena with a very small crowd and I was in the center with my Bumbershoot buddy John, leaning on the stage barriers.
I’ve been to many, many Bumbershoots since, mostly attending all three days. The weather doesn’t always cooperate. I remember it raining so hard one afternoon that I signed up for a Seattle Times subscription just so I could get the free umbrella, which inverted on the first moderate gust of wind. Oh well.
