CD FOCUS: Occasional segment featuring outstanding compilation and concept albums, track-for-track.
Bloodshot Records @BSHQ
This roots-rock label turns 25 years old this month. I’ve been a fan of the label, since the early years – (both theirs, and this show’s),
starting with Cordero, circa 2003. The trend has continued to the present day, as some of their current roster do find their way onto my shows,
(namely, The Bottle Rockets, Murder By Death, Vandoliers, and Sarah Shook & The Disarmers). Bloodshot consistently turns out music, that hails mainly
from elements of country, punk and folk – something new in the early 90s, not unlike the “No Depression” movement. Something called, “insurgent country”
grew, from this loose combination of sounds.
From their new compilation, “Too Late To Pray: Defiant Chicago Roots”, I aired these tracks:
Big Sadie “You Never Told Me” @bigsadiemusic
Rookie “Head Over Heels” (Writers: Roland Orzabal/Curt Smith – Phonogram, Mercury/1985) @rookie_the_band
