It will be a world weary show, as I'm pretty exhausted, but the new Hem album is making me feel very fall and wonderful. I'll put up some tracks from it this Friday.
I know I don't normally stray too far from postwar blues, but I ran across this track and I think it's wonderful. Mississippi John Hurt was one of the biggest names during the folk revival. This track was recorded at a show at Oberlin College in Ohio. Hurt's voice is wonderful and wise and his guitar playing doesn't feel like he's lost anything since the 30s. Wonderful and it feels a lot like fall to me, Since I've Laid My Burden Down.
