You know what, it would be nice if people start doing music reviews, that was very nice presentation.

This album also features Ani DiFranco, Greg Brown, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), The Haden Triplets, and many other excellent artists. It's best to listen to this album as a whole, in one sitting.  I guarantee that a lot of these tracks will get stuck in your head.  Check it out at http://hadestown.anaismitchell.com/hadestown/history.html and listen to samples/read reviews at Amazon. ;)

This is a frightfully good recommendation! I owe you one.

For some reason it reminds me of watching a Robert Altman film:confused_face_2:

 

for Opus 3 (off topic of course) GITARRKVARTETTEN - TRANSCRIPTIONS - OPUS 3 CD 7810  is a phenomenal album.

I"m more partial to Lissie.  Her voice is what I like.  :o  That live performance is phenomenal.

Guess I'm still stuck in the past. Olivia Newton-John. Favorite song: "Have you never been mellow"

Double post!   Arghhhh...might as well put this post to use...

 

One of my all-time favorites, and touted as "the best cover song ever", even by it originator, Lou Reed...

 

Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane (from The Trinity Session album)

 

 

Both this and the newer "Trinity Revisited" album are spectacular SQ.  Highly Recommended.  :)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------

 

And another favorite from the same era and genre...

 

Mazzy Star (Hope Sandoval) - Fade Into You

 

 

 

I actually like this Acoustic version better...

LOL! One of my best friends lived next-door to her. She is super sweet and her house had a small recording studio in it...right on the beach in Malibu. Lovely. :) Good times!

 

For more of Lissie, check out her Live performances on YouTube from the Bing Lounge on the "KINK Radio" channel, the FlavorPill Session, and KCRW sessions...

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can also search for more of the Anais Mitchell / Hadestown tracks on YT...I believe that the entire album is posted but in individual tracks.
