Rearview Mirror – Postcard Elba

Rearview Mirror is our annual look back at the year in music from our friends in and around the business.  Musicians, managers, roadies, superfans, bloggers etc..

This year we’re upping the vanity aspect of it by sprinkling in our favorite posts of the past year, which you may have missed the first time around. Our favorite post in June, wasn’t even a post, but rather a re-post from our friend Jason Sheeley and his blog The Hillbilly Beast.  Always showcasing cool classic tracks that have fallen through the cracks of your music collection, he blew us away with this one. A recording of Jason’s grandpa James listening to a tape of himself singing a Jimmie Rodgers song and commenting on it and about the woman he was dedicating it to, Loraine. A fascinating little slice of real americana and the way old songs stay with us and get passed down.  Check it out here.
