^ This band has such a great name - and quite a reputation too. For some reason, the only song of theirs I´ve previously heard was very disappointing, so thanks for showing a clip where they sound so good. They reminded me a little of these guys:-

I've not heard of the Duhks before but like that song. I'll have to check 'em out.

Old Crow Medicine Show are somewhat hit and miss in my eyes too. A lot of their stuff I really like and some of their stuff I strongly dislike.

^ That´s about how the Duhks are as well - some great Americana tracks and some less interesting material too. Can´t find it on Youtube, but they recorded a great version of the song called "Dance Hall Girls" which you might like, Charlie.

And how about Railroad Earth - ever come across them ? They write their own material, but it´s pretty consistently in a traditional style. Here´s one of their most melodic efforts:-

# Yes, the Solomon Burke song is excellent, and a really exquisite sound for a live performance.

# Glad you liked the Railroad Earth track, Charlie. As well as short songs they do some longer jams which are also pretty good imo.

# You have to admire Seasick Steve, who keeps it simple but also keeps it interesting. Do you feel like he has never quite shaken off the experience of busking? This is probably the best song by another guy who likes to emphasise his busking past:-

Don't knock busking. If you're a talented musician in a good location you can make pretty good tax-free money for a couple hours work. I used to see Tracy Chapman busking in the Harvard Square subway station in Cambridge even after she recorded her first album. Mary Lou Lord (recording artist and girl friend of Kurt Cobain before Courtney Love came along) was always busking in the Park Street subway station in Boston Common in the 80s.

The Solomon Burke video reminded me of another great video by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Caleb Meyer was performed at St. Luke's Church, perhaps the most beautiful music venue in all of London.
