We’re back on track this week with a number of exciting releases. I’ll be listening to Minus 5, Marty Stuart, Beth Orton, Shannon McNally and two tribute albums, one for Elliott Smith and the other for Peter Case.
My pick of the week:
A Case for Case: A Tribute to the Songs of Peter Case
(Hungry for Music)
alternative, folk, rock
It was really hard not to pick the Minus 5 this week, but 3 discs chock full of great artists singing songs of Peter Case was just too hard to pass by. Check out some of the artists in this line up: Hayes Carll, Jackie Green, Will Kimbrough, Kevin Kinney, Last Train Home, James McMurtry, John Prine, Todd Snider, Steve Wynn and more. All proceeds benefit Hungry for Music’s musical instrument donation program for underprivileged children.
Other notable releases for week of February 7, 2006 from:
Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Minus 5, Sarah Harmer, Avett Brothers, Various Artists (Elliott Smith tribute), Legendary Shack Shakers, Beth Orton, Shannon McNally, Belle & Sebastian, HEM, Jack Johnson, KT Tunstall, Swearing at Motorists, Will Hoge and Stroke 9.
