One of the reasons I absolutely love this board is all of the music I get turned on to that would otherwise pass me by. I was never really into the national punk/alternative scene, so most of these bands I haven’t heard of. I find an MP3 and if I like it, I order the CD. Thanks. One of my favorites has been Yo La Tengo’s "Here Come’s My Baby." Very cool song.

Anyway, my list includes:

Brad: Shame. Just freakin’ cool. Shawn Smith doesn’t sound white to me. And it has the great guitar playing of Pearl Jam w/o having to hear floppy haired guy’s political views.

D. Yoakam: dwightyoakamacoustic.net. A real gem for country fans who can’t stand country radio.

Hank Sr.: Alone With His Guitar. See above. It’s very sad that THE icon in country music would have NEVER made it big today. Makes me wanna puke.

Blind Melon: Nico. I hated this band when Hoon was alive. "No Rain" drove me insane. Hey, that rhymes….and you know it rhymes Marge. Whoops, wrong thread.

Mighty Mighty Bosstones: Let’s Face It. For a genra (is that spelled right??) of music that is so cool, so few people do it well. Dig the guys voice.

Blue Mountain: Homegrown. Americana. Sweet.

Counting Crows: Live In New York. I like them and I don’t give a damn what anyone else says!!!

Wilco: Being There. What can I say?? It’s always there.

Son Volt: Trace. See Blue Mountain.

Uncle Tupelo: Anodyne. This will always be on the list.

Lyle Lovett: Any CD. The best songwriter i’ve heard since Willie Nelson. I don’t think many folks "get it." Or have never listened. Download "Creeps Like Me." Great lyrics.

Astrud Gilberto: A spanish (I think) jazz singer. Very cool. Especially on Saturday morning’s when you know you won’t be leaving the house ’till Monday at 8am.

Steve Earle: Shut Up And Die Like An Aviator. Southern country rock stuff. Live. Dig it.

Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys: For The Last Time. I gotta learn how to swing dance.

Yes, I listen to a lot of country stuff…but hey, I dig it.
