Dalton Campbell

Nashville legend Lloyd Maines, who has produced the Sons of Fathers' latest release, describes them as “the Everly Brothers meets Neil Young and Merle Haggard and The Clash.”  And we don't want to argue with Lloyd Maines... They play Knoxville Thursday and Charlotte Friday.

Monday Night November 4th at 8pm: GUY CLARK - Texas Cookin'

We celebrate the birthday of one of Americana's best songwriters this week with Guy's 2nd album, from 1976.  This one features an all-star cast of guests, including Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, and Rodney Crowell -- all together on the same chorus, even! Johnny Gimble, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Tracy Nelson are here too.  If Guy's skills as a top tier ballad writer weren't already established, they are with with this classic.  "Take me to a barroom driver/Set me on a stool/If I can't be her man, I'm damned/If I'll be her fool."

Thursday Night the 7th between 8pm & Midnight: BOB DYLAN - Another Self-Portrait (1969-71)

Who else but Bob Dylan could release TEN volumes (and counting) of "bootleg" studio/stage recordings, and each one full of great material?  This one is centered around Self-Portrait (various folk and traditional songs) and New Morning (one of his best, under-recognized albums), but also includes outtakes & such from Nashville Skyline and work with The Band.  Check out the fine accompaniment too, from the likes of David Bromberg, Al Kooper, and George Harrison.  Brad will fit as many of these 35 songs as he can into your Thursday night mix.
