unknown folk songs
Headin’ out to the country for the weekend. Here is a sweet song written by Bob Dylan and Old Crow Medicine Show. They didn’t write the song together but Old Crow wrote the song based on an unfinished version by Bob Dylan and performed it at Bob Dylan’s 60th birthday in 2001. Apparently Bob Dylan wrote the chorus which was then altered a little bit by Old Crow, and Old Crow wrote the verses.
@Yo_la_tengo Here is a great unknown song by the very underplayed indie rock band – Yo La Tengo. I had the chance to see them live a few times in High School and College but it’s been a while. They are still playing out and will be at the Pitchfork music festival in a week or so for those people in Chicago and they are opening for Wilco before then for my New Yorkers. These guys are an awesome live show because they write really good songs and their lead singer/guitarist Ira Kaplan does some really awesome sounding feedback-ish solos. You won’t see another band like these guys. I strongly recommend checking out some of their stuff on Grooveshark, YouTube, or whatever else you use to listen to music for free.
Uncle Tupelo officially formed in 1987 and broke up in 1994 when Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy’s musical relationship had decayed. Jeff Tweedy retained the remaining members of Uncle Tupelo and started the successful Wilco.
