mixes everyone should hear: coyote – play your dulcimer, i’ll play my guitar

AOR posted this little mix the other day from Coyote, and after finally giving it the listen it deserved, I feel I can give it the AESO seal of approval and recommend it to all.

What really caught my ear was the vibe, Coyote makes one great selection after another and they all feel similar…yet different at the same time.  There are some tracks on here you may never have heard of, and some that you might know a little( probably not,) but the overall listening experience is mellow, smooth and highly enjoyable.  Like an impromptu wine party that starts around six and ends with you waking up on the floor the next morning wondering where your pants are.  Here’s the set list:

judy tzuke….for you
michael franks….when blackbirds fly
lucio battisti….amarisi un po
gypsy kings…..trista pena
jonathan wilson….can we really party today?
boz scaggs….hercules
the souther hillman furay band….border town
mink deville….spanish stroll
johhny bristol….woman woman
supertramp….child of vision
ORS….Indian reservation
george accrue….rock your baby
jerry williams….easy on yourself
china crisis….king in a catholic stance
Personally, I went a little gaga for that Michael Fransk number in the beginning.  What a tune!

songs everyone should own: bob dylan – she belongs to me (rosa lux belongs edit)

It’s hard to not like this nicely done remix by Rosa Lux.  It’s even harder to not like the original song that Dylan wrote for Joan Baez.

And it’s even harder to not like a free download.


songs everyone should own: junip – without you

I’ve always like Jose Gonzales because his work reminds me so much of Nick Drake.

He newest side project, Junip is no exception.  Beautiful stuff.

Loved the use of this one for the HBO trailer for Inception.
