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 with twang in the UK, Caitlin’s album get’s released in North America in March, keep your eye out for it.
