|Rec Me Some Old Country And Others|
I feel like Hank III in that I hate pop-country but love the older stuff.
Yet I've never seriously listened to it and have no full albums. I need
recs for these guys, people related, and other old genres (where
Sinatra and Johnson come in).
Love his old stuff. I don't want his full discography, just a good album of
|2||Hank Williams Jr.|
Not as good as his father but I've heard a few good songs. Sometimes he
seems completely sold out nowadays but surely he has a good album or
|3||Hank Williams III|
The rebel, the badass, the one who hates the modern country
establishment. I love songs like Dick in Dixie and some Assjack stuff would
be cool too.
Heard a few songs that I like and I love the person himself.
I have At Folsom Prison and a few other songs already.
Have a handful of songs but not an album anywhere.
Have a few songs from the blues legend. Perhaps the most important
musician ever. Therefore I need more of his stuff.
|Need more! |
|Not sure if you'll like this but you could check out Uncle Tupelo. Their album No Depression is a good place to start or just torrent the anthology, it's easier to find. |
|The Willie Nelson album redsky reviewed is brilliant. The Red Headed Stranger. And Laura Cantrell is awesome if you wanted to hear some female fronted stuff. She's a contemporary artist but sings and plays in a traditional style.|
|I remember that now. I will get that one. I'll see if I like that Uncle Tupelo guy. |
|Oh come on guys. Why has Sputnik been so dead lately? |
|look into Townes Van Zandt. he has a lot of good albums, so take your pick.|
|What about Hank Jr.? |
|Kris Kristoffersson, Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle, Neil Young, David Allen Coe, Merle Haggard, Billy Joe Shaver. Pick yer poison.|
|eh, the only one i really know anything about, musically, on your list is Cash. honestly didn't read the description. saw the title and acted on instinct, haha. Townes is cool though. old styled country, and i know he was a bit of a substance abuser, so in that respect he sort of fits in with the ones you have listed.|
|Specific albums plz. I have Neil Young. |
|I remember that now. I will get that one. I'll see if I like that Uncle Tupelo guy.|
It's a band. Jeff Tweedy from Wilco was in it along with Jay Farrar.
|get townes van zandt's self titled record|
|Will do. |
|the louvin brothers, ernest tubb, bob wills and the texas playboys, buck owens, roy acuff, porter wagoner, jimmie rogers, bill monroe, jerry jeff walker, johnny paycheck, charley pride, guy clark, joe ely, terry allen, ray wylie hubbard, the avett brothers, slim cessna's auto club, and those poor bastards.|
that's a good mix of "old country", outlaw country, and more modern "rebellious hank" III stuff. for most of those guys just get their greatest hits collections. for townes van zandt i'd recomend startin' w/ his "live at the old quarter" record. for the louvin brothers get "tragic songs of life", porter wagoner get "the rubber room", for jerry jeff walker get "viva terlingua", for ray wylie hubbard get his newest, for terry allen get "lubbock (on everything)".
|also get john hartford, "aero-plain" and for blues check out lightnin' hopkins.|
oh yeah and check out ray charles' "modern sounds in country and western" album for a really cool take on country songs.
also this is like the best song ever:
oh and you may dig jay munly:
|Thank you sir. |
|Check out: Scott H. Biram - Something's Wrong / Lost Forever.|
That album is a good start but anything before it is gold too.
|two years later... but since we're here, http://thesterlingsisters.bandcamp.com/album/shallow-blood-7|
