The Be Good Tanyas – Waiting Around To Die

A great version of the Townes Van Zandt track. Sounds great.

Today’s Music to keep me SSSSSaaaaannnnEEEE in Isolation – Roy Harper

For 175 days I’ve been playing a new band or artist every day. Today I thought I’d return to Roy Harper and give his first album a play. It’s one I’ve been enjoying for fifty-two years!! Still as good as ever!

Today’s Music to keep me SaaaNNNeeeEEE in Isolation – Kirsty MacColl

Kirsty was the daughter of Ewan MacColl. She came out of the New Wave scene. She brought a touch of humour to her songs. She was a very genuine person. She was tragically killed in a motorboat accident in 2000.

Today I play some Kirsty to cheer me up.

 

Today’s Music to keep me SSSSaaaaNNNNeeee in Isolation – Bruce Springsteen

Bruce was the most successful of all the ‘new Bob Dylan’ singer-songwriters. His commercial success and popularity tend to mask the brilliance of some of his songwriting. Bruce is someone whose music contains real poetry and worth – he’s not just a pop star.

Today I’ll play the best of Bruce!

Today’s Music to keep me sanEEEEE in Isolation – Jackson Browne

It took me a while to get to Jackson. I’m not a great lover of country rock and bands like the Eagles. But Jackson was a great wordsmith and I found myself really getting lost in his songs.

Today I’ll play some Jackson Browne:
