They Could Sing the Phonebook

I was driving over the weekend listening to two of my favorite CDs – Dave Alvin‘s King of California and Blackjack David. These two CDs have some of the best song writing you’ll ever hear IMHO, but more than that — I realized it didn’t matter. Dave could be singing the phonebook and I’d LOVE it. He’s got One of Those Voices. I started thinking about other singers who do this for me too. My short list – Greg Brown for sure, and also Kate Wolf and Iris DeMent. How about you? Who would be on your list?

{btw, I hear Dave’s coming out with a new CD very soon on Yep Roc. I can’t wait!}
