Revivals 2017

There is so much music coming out now. And there is so much music from the past, the recording industry going full bore since the 1920's. Sometimes it's time for a revival of a classic artist. Deaths, anniversaries, controversies, books, movies, celebrity covers... any old excuse for a revival will do. Sometimes, it's just the right time.

Here are some of the "revivals" I've been experiencing lately:

Gene Clark/The Byrds (and with Carla Olson)

Eric von Schmidt

Barbara Dane (and with The Chambers Brothers) (and with Lightnin' Hopkins)

Tim Buckley

Tim Hardin

Tom Rush

Gordon Lightfoot

Laura Nyro

Jesse Ed Davis

Little Richard

Sex Pistols

Taj Mahal

Hank Snow

Bobby Fuller

Christy Moore

Fats Domino

Glen Campbell

Steely Dan

Fairport Convention/Sandy Denny/Richard Thompson

Fred Neil

Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac

Memphis Minnie

Blind Blake (both of them)

Mississippi John Hurt


New stuff I like:

The Lemon Twigs

Talib Kweli

John Lee Hooker King Of The Boogie boxset

Chris Hillman (ex-Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, etc.)

Billy Bragg

Mavis Staples

Blitzen Trapper
