Patsy Matheson and Bonnie and the Clydes



Well here we have a couple of great songs, one from UK singer Patsy Matheson about the dangers of not appreciating what you have, when what you have is special and the other from a band that promise a return to real country music and go about proving just that with some impressive playing and yodelling. Both albums are well worth checking out and if either are playing near you check them out.

My Darling Clementine - She Is Still my Weakness



 There's loads of other lonesome music that I've been meaning to give an airing - a new HAL album (oddly Bee Gee-influenced), several Bonnie Prince Billy albums, Josh Ritter (really good actually) and a new Spain album (not as bad as the last, not as good as the first).

Maybe they'll get a post to themselves, but in the meantime here are My Darling Clementine with classic county-style duet (he's a Tindersticks style baritone, she's a woman wronged). From their album How do you plead? this was the track that made me think about posting again. There's pedal steel, a telecaster twanging somewhere in the corner and a hammond underpinning the whole thing. They are from the UK, but that really doesn't matter.
