  1. Steven, thanks for putting these lists together… I’ve heard alot of great music I wouldn’t have known about without this site.

    Just so you know, the company I work at has a product called websense installed on our network. It appears (at least from here) that your site is now blacklisted by… I was able to download the playlist using an externally hosted linux server with wget.

    Anyway, keep up the good work.

  2. I really liked the session. Regarding Idlewild, “American English” is, to my mind, their masterpiece to date. Regarding mandolins, there is a lovely mandolin orhcestra at the end of the Smiths “Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” if you can handle the angst-ridden, self-pitying moroseness of the whole thing. I am partial to it because my grandmother used to play in a mandolin orchestra. Keep on rockin’.

  3. Thanks for this new session; I especially liked songs five and six (haven’t heard the seventh yet).

    Just a minor note: in your tracklist you wrote “Sweater than You,” instead of “Sweeter than You.”

  4. Wow. I’m absolutely stuck at “Mighty Little Man” by Steve Burns. Admittedly, I’m not sure if I’m stuck there because I think its a great tune, or if it is because I can’t stop thinking about Blues Clues, or some of both.

    Great stuff all around, Steve. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Short time reader, first time listener 🙂

    The Joe Strummer song captured me, as did Idlewild, Tim Chaisson and Aaron Sprinkle. I’m going to have to hunt those songs down.

    Idlewild gave the old speakers a good work out 🙂

  6. First off, great session. I am bewildered listening to Steve Burns rocking out, with great music to boot. Ok: Timoth Chaisson….Am I blind, or can I not find somewhere to BUY THE CD “Something Acoustic”? Can you steer me in the proper direction??

  7. I really really love this session. You’ve pointed us in the direction of several excellent artists, which is really the whole contire point of the thing, I’d suppose.

  8. Jason: I’m not sure where you can buy Timothy Chaisson’s CD. He’s a local artist and I don’t think there is any label/distribution for it.

    He’s going to be at my wedding next week, so I’ll ask him (if I remember) 🙂

  9. I am looking for some Timothy Chaisson lyrics.I love his music and would love the lyrics if anyone has them!
