Must Own Albums

I'm going to start posting some of my favorite listening selections as "Must Own Album's", Because these are albums that I personally need on my iPod at all times. Hopefully I can turn you onto something you will enjoy. This is the first, and more will follow time to time.

Grayson Capps - Songbones

Word of this album has been circulating among Grayson Capps' fans for years. Recorded in 2003--two years before his debut album "If You Knew My Mind"--this magical, stripped-down session features Grayson on acoustic guitar and his longtime friend Tom Marron on fiddle. Recorded at New Orleans' 9th Street Pickin Parlor, Grayson let the tape roll, cutting the entire album in less than five hours. Appropriately titled "Songbones," Grayson's original renditions of songs like "Washboard Lisa," "I Can't Hear You," "Slidell" and "Mermaid," that have since become staples in his repertoire, are featured. Also included are rarities that have never been officially released like "Junior & The Old African Queen," "Guitar" and "Psychic Channel Blues." It's a pristine recording that captures Grayson's songwriting, voice and guitar-picking in all of its unadorned glory. Only 5000 copies of the album are being made available as a collector's piece for Grayson's diehard fans. "Songbones" is intimate, front porch music, honest, down-home and pure; all of the traits that make Grayson Capps one of the most important songwriters to emerge from the South in recent memory.
