Justin Townes Earle “Memphis in the Rain”
from Nothing's Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2012) —72. A busy, productive, post-rehab year from the talented Mr. Earle. He not only released his most musically rich album but also produced the great Wanda Jackson.
Amanda Shires “I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass”
from Lowe Country (Fiesta Red www.fiestaredrecords.com 2012) —68. An album I wish I'd played more this year. Country-influenced covers of great Nick Lowe songs. Artists include Ron Sexsmith, Chatham County Line, JEFF the Brotherhood and Caitlin Rose. Highly recommended.
Kristina Train “Dream Of Me”
from Dark Black (Mercury UK 2013) —60. Very much under the radar west of the Mississippi, but a gorgeous album by Ms. Train. The title cut is one of my songs of the year but I thought this fit into the lush sound of this set. Produced with Ed Harcourt Martin Craft.
Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker & Yim Yames “When I Get Home”
from New Multitudes (Deluxe Edition) (New Rounder 2012) —57. I recommend seeking out the deluxe edition of this album if you can find it. Bonus tracks like this one are very much worth the coin.
Darren Criss “NEW MORNING”
from Chimes of Freedom - The Songs of Bob Dylan (Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International) (UMGI - Fontana International 2011) —42. Never imagined Mr. Criss, best known as a member of the Glee cast, would appear on an FLGH playlist, but I rather like this sweet cover, which also features his brother Chuck, and Chuck's band Freelance Whales.
