Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 5



Welcome to Episode 5, featuring some Alt Country, Americana type songs (I'm never really quite sure what to call them) that I've been digging and writing about over the past few years.  This mix has a different vibe from the first four episodes, but damn, these songs are beautiful and the groove holds up.

I really enjoyed kicking the mix off with a twelve minute Lucinda Williams tune.  The extended length gives the song time to breath, like a good wine (or bourbon).

This mix also includes one of my favorite songs of the decade (Cigarettes & Truckstops), the best cover of the decade (The Promise), and a song that brings back a memory so beautiful that I can actually listen to it without getting sad.

Anyhow, here is the playlist:

Faith And Grace by Lucinda Williams

Gypsy Epilogue by Tony Joe White

Deeper Well by Emmylou Harris

Calling Cards by Neko Case

Cigarettes & Truckstops by Lindi Ortega

Since You Put Me Down by Margo Price

    1. Thanks. There were so many other songs I wanted to include, but you kind of have to let the mix take on a life of its own. I'm glad you liked it. Happy Sunday...
