Re: Mercy Now -Kathy Mattea

Hi Tony, 455 Rocket is a terrific song and video. Have been a long time fan of Kathy Mattea and especially of her last 3 albums. Yes quite different from Mercy Now. Here she is harmonizing with Emmylou Harris - another peerless voice in a different range. As Townes Van Zandt put it in song "the bott...

Mercy Now -Kathy Mattea

Cover version of a song by Mary Gauthier on Kathy Mattea's new album Pretty Bird... Mercy Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvNG1wBxQE0 Kathy Mattea's voice at 59 is remarkably similar to present day voice of Joan Baez who is almost 78.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hi Tony, It is interesting how one song leads to another. When I clicked on the link to 'Carmen' I had a false sense of deja vu I had heard this before. In fact the song that I was thinking of was Tonight Carmen by Marty Robbins. Tonight Carmen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P65Zw2hGibI another gre...

Re: Mary Chapin Carpenter - The Things we are Made Of

'Fragility' and 'sensitivity' are accurate descriptions of her music. I don't believe I had heard any of her music until I listened to Joan Baez cover of The Things we are Made of. The lyrics to Hand on my Back is Cohenesque in some ways.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hi Tony,

I have not heard the Aztec Jazz album in a while and just heard this song again. It is a terrific album.
BTW I never did make it to the Dave Alvin / Jimmie Dale Gilmore....

Re: Joan Baez

Very nice cover, Diane. JB has what I believe is called a "falcon voice".

Here she is using it in a different capacity....

Re: Joan Baez

JB's early fame as singer, subsequent association with Dylan and activist reputation overshadowed her exquisite and prolific songwriting. If she had never sung a note, she would have been known as a great songwriter IMHO. A few favorites (in addition to Diamonds and Rust): Love Song to a Stranger ht...
