Gillian Welch & David Rawlings – Live and Obscure

Some more acoustic type stuff. This is a collection of live covers from Gillian & David, you may know Gillian from her work on the “O’ Brother” soundtrack, and she also had a bit part in that movie. They are doing their thing here, which is rootsy folk music in the old time style of the Carter Family. Some of my favorite cuts off this are Lefty’s “Long Black Veil”, a killer version of Townes Van Zandt’s “White Freightliner Blues” (they also do Townes’ “Pancho & Lefty), the standard “I’ll Fly Away”, and my favorite off this “Dusty Boxcar Walls”.
I don’t really care for the artwork, but I found it online at this site which also has some more info on this album.
