ND#63 has Jon Dee Graham and Alejandro Escovedo on the cover, with top plugs for Buck Owens, Dr. John, Josh Ritter, and Cassandra Wilson. Of these, I'm familiar with all but the last. I will read to become informed.
Live Show writeups: Van Morrison, Jeff Tweedy, Wilco (are they not one in the same? I know, read to become informed...); Jesse Dayton, Mavis Staples, Ray Davies, Silver Jews. Of these, 1 strike-out with Mr. Davies, tho I don't know that any of the rest show up in my charts.
