My secret shame

Time to confess a secret shame.

Last night I finally loaded a country album onto the iPod.

Now, I know a lot of people don't rate country one bit, and for 95% of it I would have to agree (Achy Breaky Pelvis for example, ugh).

However, and stick with me on this, there is a brand of country that can be just mind blowingly wonderful – in this instance I am refering to the two Gram Parsons albums GP and Grievous Angel. If there is anyone who doubts that country can do this go listen to Return of the Grievous Angel or $1000 Wedding. Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris were at their peak.

Oh, and if you need another argument for why some country is fantastic, how about:

"Hello, I'm Johnny Cash".

  1. Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton. No shame in it.

    Johnny Cash does indeed rock. I grabbed a load of his stuff off Soul Seek, for a first foray into country, it's a good place to start.

    Not a country fan myself, but that said I always have time for a bit of Otis Lee Crenshaw…
