_ G B - Inaugeral Webcast

Well friends, as usual, an endeavor involving K and G comes off without a hitch. Wait a minute...due to technical concerns Mr. Kendall will be shortly delayed in posting his first webcast, but kindly insisted that I proceed with my own posting. I am happy to oblige and am sure that one day Bryan will get his shit together - I mean, this glitch will get worked out and the more impressive and entertaining webcast will be shortly on its way. Just consider mine a little warm up for the main event. And, without further ado:

Four Years of New Music (2003-2006)

1. Ben Folds – Sunny 16 (2004) – Rockstar
This song comes off one of three EPs that Ben Folds recorded in his home studio and released for sale on iTunes with the full expectation that these songs would be passed around and shared. Here’s Ben using the internet to bypass the record industry and get the music straight to the audience. Check out this interview where Ben talks about these songs and the music industry.
2. The Kooks – Inside In/Inside Out (2006) – Matchbox
3. Widespread Panic with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band – Night of Joy (2004) – Old Neighborhood
4. Drive-by Truckers – Blessing and a Curse (2004) – Goodbye
5. Jack Johnson – Curious George Soundtrack (2006) – We’re Going to Be Friends
Jack put this whole soundtrack together and it worked pretty well. This is a song written by the White Stripes. I first heard it played by Joe Ferguson.
6. David Mead – Indiana (2004) – Nashville
7. Gillian Welch – Soul Journey (2003) – Wayside/Back In Time
8. Old Crow Medicine Show – OCMS (2004) – Hard to Tell
9. JJ Cale – To Tulsa and Back (2004) – Another Song
This was JJs first album release in 8 years, when it came out in 2004. I was sure glad to hear some new Cale tunes and really enjoy the banjo on this one. Check out this story on the CD.
10. Iron and Wine – Our Endless Numbered Days (2004) – Sunset Soon Forgotten
Nice and laid-back music here. I think they gained some popularity and exposure from being on the Garden State Soundtrack, though the song on that disc wasn’t even their own.
11. Little Willies – The Little Willies (2005) – I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive
Here’s a great Americana “bar band” feature some great vocals, great pickin, and great choice of songs to cover. This is a Hank Williams, Jr song sung superbly by Richard Jullian. Check out this NPR World CafĂ© interview and performance.
12. Derek Trucks Band – Soul Serenade (2003) – Drown In My Own Tears (with Greg Allman)
Written by Henry Glover and popularized by Ray Charles, this song is perfect with Greg Allman’s gritty voice and Derek’s slide guitar.

Albums of Honorable Mention: Widespread Panic – Ball (2003), The Shins – Chutes Too Narrow (2003), Galactic – Ruckus (2003), Allman Brothers Band – One Way Out (2004), Ray Charles – Genius Love Company (2004), Micah Hinson – And the Gospel of Progress (2004), Drive-By Truckers – Dirty South (2004), Drive-By Truckers – Decoration Day (2004), Ben Folds – Song for Silverman (2005), Amos Lee – Amos Lee (2005), David Mead – Wherever You Are (2005), David Mead – Tangerine (2006), Little Barrie – We Are Little Barrie (2005)

JJ Cale released "JJ Cale Live" during the period before "To Tulsa and Back," so it wasn't 8 years since his last release.
