One of these days, I'm actually going to figure out all of the capabilities of this here blog. But for now, baby steps are the order of the day.
Today's new feature, over there on the right, is the "Now Playing" box, courtesy of Lala. In it, I will feature a current object of obsession, which right now would be the Drive-By Truckers. Less than six months ago, I had never heard of the band, which is to my own discredit. Now, they are threatening to become my favorite band. I just saw them during my trip to Chicago, and suspect that more concerts are in the future.
On tap right now is their album "The Fine Print," which is billed as a "collection of rarities and oddities, 2003-2008." It's all great stuff, but in particular I want to highlight two cover versions: Tom T. Hall's "Mama Bake A Pie (Daddy Kill A Chicken)," and Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone."
