Recently discovered Link Wray's unusual early 70s material, an amalgamation of country rock and country blues. It's surprisingly good considering how massive of a departure it is from the style that made him a legend.

Since the discussion of bluegrass came up here, this is an interesting piece I came across recently. This is considered to be a bluegrass band, but it's very modern and artsy bluegrass.



I even ended up using the song for a video I made recently.

I think they call it "New Grass." ... could be wrong tho.

Wow, I heard Gene Clark's No Other for the first time yesterday and I'm blown away, so much so that I listened to it once more front to back immediately after it was over, and then again front to back this morning. I don't know a whole lot about Gene Clark yet, but I am a big fan of The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark, and I was pleased to hear at least some elements of Clark's rootsy delivery resurfacing in this album. The vocal lines (both lead and backup), pedal steel and piano lines, songwriting, and production are all so focused on this album, every note counts and every minute of the album is beautiful, it's a sprawling, trippy, cosmic masterpiece of mid-70s Americana. Excellent early morning or late night listening, hard to imagine that Fleetwood Mac didn't take at least some stylistic cues from this album when they were producing Rumours the following year.

This thread is for examples of rock and roll pulling inspiration from traditional blues, country, gosepl, R&B, soul, bluegrass, western swing, and jazz.
