Seems an appropriate time to put this up – to compare and contrast to the excellent new album The Stand-in
Caitlin Rose’s album Own Side featured in my top albums of 2010 and has been on regular rotation since it’s release, my only disappointment is it’s not available on vinyl unlike Caitlin’s previous releases Dead Flowers and Gorilla Man, this year I’ve listened to a number of radio shows, session tracks and audio-visuals featuring songs from Caitlin’s latest album as well some great covers including one from Townes and one from Willy, so in the spirit of the season I’ve put a selection box of tracks together into one sweet compilation for you – get the whole album or individual tracks below.
On this side of the water Caitlin has been a real hit and has gathered a lot of positive press and critical acclaim, quite an achievement for a act . . . → Read More: Caitlin Rose “Live, covers and others”

Back in 2000 Neko Case and Her Boyfriends topped the Peel Festive 50 with their track Twist the Knife here’s a bootleg of that performance, the quality is not the best but still it’s a fine listen with tracks from the Furnace Room Lullaby album along with a great selection of covers including the Everly Brothers Bowling Green that appeared on The Virginian album, Bessie Griffin’s Lord Don’t Move the Mountain after which Loose (I assume it’s the same Loose) get a shout out, Aretha Franklin’s Runnin’ Out of Fools and Look for Me (I’ll Be Around) by Ketty Lester
Neko Case – 1 – Set Out Running
Neko Case – 11 – Bowling Green
Here’s the two tracks that start and end the session, you can get the whole thing here.

By the time you read this I, barring a last minute disaster, I will be on my way in the company of my better half to Birmingham to see Paul Weller at the LG Arena.
Thought it would be a good time to post this, if you’re watching thanks for the anonymous tip off and download link whoever you are, the full FLAC download including interview segments of this performance can be downloaded here along with the artwork – I’ve stripped out the tracks only and present them as 192 bit-rate mp3′s, if you hearing isn’t scarred by having the volume turned up to loud for too long get the FLAC files for quality.
