Lots of in-the-moment twists and turns and a general sense of going with what felt right.

This kerfuffle oughta sell a few more Welch/Rawlings records, though.

Better left in the cut-out bins? Rock from the era of one-album wonders.

One of my favorite South by Southwest moments over the 28 years I have attended was the early-1990s performance of Arthur Alexander who was literally sobbing before his set was done. In 1993, after many years out of the music game, Alexander, with the help of a lot of talented friends, made Lonely Just Like Me for Elektra Records, a swansong he never thought possible. Convinced he'd been forgotten, his triumphant performance in Austin just after the record was released, in front of a wildly enthusiastic crowd, moved him to tears. A few weeks later he was gone.

If you can put aside the fact that what was once a rock 'n' roll band has now grown into a merciless money machine, and a somewhat creaky repetitive live act that hasn't made a great record since 1978, they still do deserve a nod for never saying die. To borrow a famous line from Midnight Cowboy, those boys are gonna die on the stage. And yes, we will certainly miss them when they're gone!

I tend to gravitate towards Stephen Foster and Scott Joplin.

. . . with a second LP containing an never-released 1992 live show from the University of London.

The Dickinson brothers are traditionalists and modern proponents of the kind of music that was celebrated in American Epic.

"They are simultaneously high-fidelity in ways that are less easy to quantify . . . [and] many of the most expensive pieces of [modern] audiophile gear follow the structures of this early equipment."

His finest moments came just after the death of brother Duane in 1971 and then-bassist Berry Oakley a year later.

Another week, another beautiful-sounding, wonderfully packaged reissue from Analogue Productions.

He's made a career out of being hard to describe, impossible to pigeonhole.
