“Bringing in the Georgia mail” …

I first noticed the great Sam Bush back when he played with Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers.  I couldn’t take my eyes and ears off that mandolin player, which is saying something because, well, Emmylou.

Here’s Sam doing the Flatt & Scruggs classic “Bringing in the Georgia Mail,” and can’t you just hear that ol’ train a-chuggin’?

'66 was a Big Year for Great Rock Albums and so we're getting lots of 50th-anniversary takes on the classics.


But yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of what in many folks' not-so-humble-opinion was the most important of them all from that year. (Maybe of all time? Not necessarily my go-to desert island disk, but up there in the top five, probably.)

No youtube link because, really, everyone knows all 14 tracks by heart already, or should.

With all the talk on cable TV lately about the Nuclear Triad, you know, the three methods of nuclear bomb delivery – ICBM's, submarine-launched missiles, and, of course, strategic bombers, along with concept of massive overkill, AKA nuclear "deterrence” – how many old hippies out there remember that back in The Day, it also meant this? Thank you, Grace; much better, much better indeed! ;-)

Chris from Fountains of Wayne just released a solo effort about a week ago. I'm still absorbing it, but this is the closest thing to a power-pop uptempo kind of thing you'll hear on the record.


The rest is a bit more sedate and reflective; a lot of acoustic stuff and Mellotron.


(Guess he wants to grow up and put FoW behind him; he says the band's no more.)

It's a little depressing to hear people who can play rings around you like that.
