This brand new single, co-written and produced by Jeff Tweedy, seems set to become an anthem for our time.

I just discovered this contemporary country singer who has a very distinctive approach to songwriting - this song, about moving on after a break-up, is excellent.
Delaney & Bonnie When the Battle Is Over

Bonnie Bramlett didn't get as many leads as Delaney, but she sure could (and presumably still can) sing.

A classic song from the year I was born!

Every time he puts out a record, it's a candidate for top ten of that year.

Sing to Trumpets and Strings Scepter Records 1961
There are some pretty cool songs deep in their catalogue below the wondrous hits.

The second best album Aretha put out that year, still better than most records anybody put out.

Something To Love (Remastered) Budget (AM) 1977
A masterful hit record in between 70s sophisticated soul and disco.

Porch Sessions Vizztone 2020
Musselwhite blows some great harp still!
