We Like American Music: Podcast #118

American Music


What is American Music to you? I think one of the greatest things about American Music is that it can mean something different to everyone. This weeks podcast is a little taste of what it means to me. I sat down and really pondered where the music came from. From it’s Folk, Blues and Jazz roots to its country beginnings, R&B and Soul, through to Rock n Roll and back again. American music has a long, diverse, and storied history; rich in tradition but also heavy on exploration and improvisation. It’s also important to mention that there are many more that I would have loved to add to this list; and even as I write this now several more have popped in my head (Doc Watson, Velvet Underground, Link Wray, The Temptations, and Stevie Wonder just to name a few). So, nevertheless I invite you to listen to my interpretation; soak it in, but also I encourage you to make your own playlist and think of what american music means to you. As always, enjoy, and listen loud.

These are the truly american tracks that were played:

Robert Johnson – Cross Road Blues ++ Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven ++ Otis Redding – I Can’t Turn You Loose – Sam Cooke – Another Saturday Night ++ Leon Bridges – Coming Home ++ Aretha Franklin – I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You) ++ Billie Holiday and her Orchestra – Summertime ++ Preservation Hall Jazz Band & The Del McCoury Band – I’ll Fly Away ++ Lead Belly – Midnight Special ++ The Allman Brothers Band – Revival ++ Bruce Springsteen –  4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) ++ Dawes – From a Window Seat ++ The Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (live) ++ Woody Guthrie – Going Down The Road Feeling Bad ++ Bob Dylan – You’re No Good ++ The Byrds – You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere ++ Joe Pug – Hymn #101 ++ Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues ++ Buddy Holly – Not Fade Away ++ Grateful Dead – Ripple ++ Alabama Shakes – Gimme All Your Love ++ Father John Misty – Bored In the USA ++ The Gourds – All The Labor
