Album 1 Track 1 - Episode 4
Happy Fourth of July to all my friends, everywhere!
Episode Four of this mixtape series intertwines threads of classic country - Hank, George, Wanda, & Roy - with British acts, such as The Animals, Van Morrison, and Joe Cocker. From this foundation, you can really hear both genres captured in both the rock music of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, and Tom Petty and the country music of The Flying Burrito Brothers (featuring the incomparable Gram Parsons) and Emmylou Harris.
You then hear it in like-minded eighties artists, including Tracy Chapman and The BoDeans.
It reminds me that as "American" as it might seem, some British elements are ever present.
Hope you dig it !!!
