Heartworn Highways poster

One of my favourite music documentaries is Heartworn Highways. It’s based around the whole Texas scene with Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, and Steve Earle, just to name a few. I thought it would be possible to find the documentary in full on Youtube but apparently not so you will have to buy it or download it. These are my two of my favourite clips from the movie. The first one because it shows how awesome session musicians were back then, check out Albert Lee on guitar playing a 335, recorded at Creative Workshop in Nashville. The second clip is because it shows how truly talented Townes van Zandt was as a songwriter.

Jethro Tull Ian Anderson

I really liked Jethro Tull when I was a teenager, especially Ian Anderson’s acoustic guitar playing. The extracts from Thick As A Brick are pretty awesome in this live concert from 1977.

Dolly Parton 1970's

Araceli and I watched this documentary about Dolly Parton last week which was quite good. We also decided to watch Nine to five after which was even better.

This a great concert with one of my favourite guitar pickers and singers, Dan Tyminski.

Warren Zevon

I only have on friend that likes Warren Zevon as much as me, which probably says more about my friends than the quality of Warren’s work. Warren Zevon might have been a raging lunatic, a wife beater and an alcoholic but I still thinks that he was an amazing songwriter and a great performer. It’s also pretty impressive to manage to write a song like Keep me in your heart for a while as a farewell to the world when you are about to die.
