BLAST FROM THE PAST!--"The Guitar Pull" : 'THE WEEKEND MIX
Forgive the repost. I'm offering this again for two reasons. The first, I got caught up in some shit last night, so I didn't prepare. My apologies. The second, I was just listening to it and it's really something else. Plus, a bunch of you may have missed it first go around.
Well, here it is, by popular demand, the "GUITAR PULL" episode of SPECTACLE in its entirety...less Mellencamp's "Small Town." The great "Deerfried" who has been generously uploading the videos onto You Tube, seemed to have missed it. If it turns up, I'll post it for completists.
In the meantime, enjoy the audio from one of the most incredible nights of televised music in recent memory. The show is nothing but highlights.
There is the beautifully haunting "April 5th," a song co-written via e-mail by Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and Elvis Costello, and originally written about in Miss Cash's wonderful NYT piece which you can read HERE. Was anyone as amazed as I was over Elvis' falsetto?
Or how about the effortless low harmony Norah Jones sings on "Seven Year Ache?"
Or Kris' pair of moving solo turns?
As I said, every song is a moment.
