  1. Has Ray Charles not been mentioned because he is not considered soul? (I don't think I understand the difference between soul and R&B from that era.)


    I guess it goes without saying that you should check him out if you haven't. It's probably impossible to single out one disc, but I think The Best of Ray Charles: The Atlantic Years is a good way to get your feet wet and Genius & Soul: The 50th Anniversary Collection is a good way to jump straight in.

  2. After reading the indie media roundup of Easy Tiger reviews today, I feel like RA got shafted. It seems like most of his fans consider this a strong release (at least 7 or 8/10 area), but the reviews tended to be around the 5 or 6 out of 10 area with not much to enthuse about. Seems like a review I would have written if I had only listened to the record about 2 or 3 times and then wrote about it instead of letting myself wrap my mind around it over repeated listens. I feel like a lot of the reviews got it all wrong, Easy Tiger ain't Ryan Adams-lite, it's just quality songwriting. I think many of his fans would agree this is really solid album, yes?


    The album is doing fine critically according to Metacritic.

    Specifically, I wonder the names of the "unknown" songs. This was my first Wilco show and I was taking a trip down memory lane. Thanks in advance.

  4. It's kind of sad that there really isn't a decent place for concerts (except for the Ryman) here in Nashville. Music City my ass. Nobody really seems to come here (or at least nobody I like) anymore (except Wilco of course).


    I would say that Nashville has several good venues in addition to the Ryman: Exit/In, Mercy Lounge, the Belcourt, and City Hall. 12th & Porter used to be great but hasn't done much that I've noticed since it reopened. I keep meaning to go to the Basement b/c I've heard great things about it.


    As far as no good shows, just this week there is:


    Tue: The Broken West (opening for the Comas)- Exit/In

    Wed: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - City Hall

    Fri: The Black Keys - City Hall

    Fri: Heartless Bastards - Exit/In.
