From the area around Memphis comes the black and blind musicians Morris Cummings, who here - accompanied by a loud and gruff therefore coming white band - his debut submit. The whole thing sounds a bit strange, since both his singing style and his Harptechnik are quite rudimentary. Not bad / debut from the blind singer and harp player with did rough voice and simple, powerful harmonica style. He's backed by a pretty good, loud and rough playin 'ribbon.
These days, every band seems eager to honor the anniversary of one of its landmark albums, usually in the form of a concert tour or an expanded reissue, and even Yo La Tengo have gotten into the act – a quarter century after they released their endlessly charming 1990 LP Fakebook, in which they covered a handful of their favorite songs and reworked a few of their own numbers in semi-acoustic fashion, YLT have recorded what amounts to a sequel, 2015's Stuff Like That There. Just like a sequel to a 1980s horror movie, Stuff Like That There follows the template of the original as closely as possible – there are two new songs, three remakes from the YLT back catalog, and nine covers, which range from the instantly recognizable (Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," inspired by Al Green's version) to the thoroughly obscure (unless you're a Hoboken pop obsessive or a James McNew completist, "Automatic Doom" by the Special Pillows is probably not on your hit parade).
