Ryan Adams, Michelle Shocked, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Will the Circle Be Unbroken

Thirty years before the soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will The Circle Be Unbroken introduced rock-and-roll fans to old-timey folk and bluegrass.

The Weight

The Band's legendary farewell concert recorded as The Last Waltz is being reissued along with Martin Scorsese's ground-breaking documentary of the show.

Nobody Girl

Part Van Morrison, part Neil Young, with a little Robbie Robertson thrown in, Ryan Adams draws from some of the greatest songwriters of the past 30 years for his second solo release, Gold.

Can't Take My Joy

An unusual 2-CD set blending gospel, Jamaican reggae, and the blues, Deep Natural is Michelle Shocked's first release in 4 years.

Now Like Photographs

A great dreamy guitar record from an unknown group from Ohio, Things Shaped In Passing can be heard often between stories on NPR's All Things Considered.

Place D'Youville

A master of Hawaiian slide guitar, Bob Brozman collaborates with René Lacaille on this largely instrumental album he calls "world blues."
