random notes

It was funny to pick up Rolling Stone yesterday and see the line then there were two before David Fricke's (did I mention I met him?) excellent review of Endless Wire.
read it here
They also used the same picture I did.

Speaking of reviews, I like Robert Christgau's review of Willie Nelson's Songbird but he's wrong about the title track.
hear a sample
He's entitled to his opinion but he's still wrong.

It sounds like the band is playing the wrong Fleetwood Mac song (Dreams maybe?) and Willie might be singing the song for the first time but somehow it works. Like Christgau I wanted to rip this album and fault "the producer" Ryan Adams but I can't. It's Willie and as always he's good.
