The Hardcore Troubadour releases Washington Square Serenade on September 25, 2007. It wins a Grammy and — best of all — ends up providing the theme song to The Wire.
July 1. 1968 ~ The debut album from The Band. The music is composed at “Big Pink,” a house shared by Rick Danko, Garth Hudson and Richard Manual in West Saugerties, NY. The cover artwork is by Dylan.
It’s #34 on Rolling Stones’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and an American treasure.
Lucinda’s Grammy Award winning album is released on June 30, 1998. It’s my fav from Lu and features appearances by Emmylou Harris and The Hardore Troubadour — Steve Earle.
Some call it one of the greatest alt-country albums ever and it sits at #304 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
There’s just a whole bunch of good stuff goin’ on here.
