Hurt Me

"One foot, another foot..." Finally got my copy of the new HGM album, and I'm glad to say it's a stunner once again. Sweet as John Hurt indeed.

Hiss Golden Messenger - Sweet As John Hurt

And while we're on the subject, here's the blues master from Avalon himself.

Mississippi John Hurt - Stack O'Lee Blues

One more? Why not. Golden Gunn happens to be a limited edition, vinyl only collaboration between New York picker Steve Gunn and Hiss Golden Messenger's M.C. Taylor. Their lazy but oh-so-funky desert rock (imagine J.J. Cale writing the score for a spaghetti western) definitely deserves a wider audience.

I love HGS (& Golden Gunn, & Gunn-Truscinski...) Excellent.

Great live sets from last year's Hopscotch Fest are available online, if you're interested!
