Music

Take a look at the first four album titles below. Notice a theme? Now, look at these song titles, all from discs vouched for below that contain new music: "Lot of Leavin' Left to Do" (one of 2005's best singles, by the way), "Leaving Song," "Joe's Gone Ridin'," "Lonesome Rider," "Love and Gasoline," "Temporary Town," "Away From Me," "Trying to Find Atlantis." Now look at these, all from sets below where the music is three-quarters of a century old: "I'm Going Away Blues," "Memphis Rounders Blues," "Running Wild Blues," "Some of These Days I'll Be Gone," "Moving Day," "He Rambled." Charlie Poole's band was even called the Ramblers. Sometimes things change less than you'd think.
