Special guest DJ
Ladies and Gentlemen! Today, and all night too, right here in your favourite limegreen and agent orange Dayglo Disco ... none other than our good Two Paddocks friend, the one and only Mark Lizotte -- aka DIESEL! Not just Australia's greatest guitarist but perhaps its greatest living singer too. A Living National Treasure! At last, some class! So, a big hand if you please -- here he is (Mark has sung for us at birthdays, dinners, picnics ...there is no end to his generosity, but today instead he's spinning discs) -- a big hand for the fabulous ...DIESEL!!
What I'm listening to this week -- top 10 (in no particular order):
Sometimes you hear a song that stops you literally in your tracks.
Ain't a crime? This song makes everything elicit attractive, the way the verses turn around, an extra bar here, there ... poetry.
Great textures from the background vocals .. and a (rocking??) banjo.
How they managed to make this song evoke an orchestral landscape will always amaze me .. it's all in the song ... and ... they only had 8 tracks!
Cinematic, this track is like a massage around the shoulders like "albatross."
I love this paired back version. Amy working the melody beautifully.
I'm in love with the idea of rural life... Linda Ronstadt adds some much on this track.
Syncopation taken to new levels on this track... sorry Elvis!
Two generations of the 5 Burroughs meet on this track, brutal and vulnerable at once.
Makes me think about Savannah and weather that hangs like a water filled flour bag.
