Musical palate cleanser, back to the well one more time edition

One last thing from last week’s concert to share is a new Dwight Yoakam tune he trotted out, inspired by the whole late sixties/early seventies country rock scene that burst out of California.  It’s called “Pretty Horses”.

Musical palate cleanser, triple option edition

Going to one of the shows of my dreams tonight — a three-biller at Chastain with Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams and Dwight Yoakam.  Tale about your potential sensory overload.

I’ve posted stuff from the two gentlemen before, so let’s give Lucinda her day in the MPC sun.  This is one that cuts my heart every time I listen to it, from her album of the same name, the achingly beautiful “Sweet Old World”.

Musical palate cleanser, such a dirty mind edition

Straight from the comments to today’s MPC, it’s The Knack and “My Sharona”.

You get the impression these guys didn’t take themselves too seriously.

Musical palate cleanser, guitar god edition

If you like a slow, steady build up to guitar pyrotechnics, then “The Storm Won’t Come”, from Richard Thompson’s upcoming 13 Rivers, will be right up your alley.  Make sure you stick around ’til the 3:55 mark.

Wowsah.
