James McMurtry - We Can't Make It Here

So why do I make monthly mixes? Basically because I like to share the things that speak to me in whatever language they choose. So what is the best reward that I can get from that? There are two:

1. Turning a friend or stranger on to something that I like.
2. That same friend or stranger sharing back and turning me on to something new.

Thus, I bring you James McMurty from Fort Worth, TX. Nate Dogg dropped off his CD, Just Us Kids, at our back door this weekend. I love it.

I'm really falling behind in my McMurtry fandom. I haven't heard _Childish Things_, let alone this one.

Caught him for a great live show in Santa Fe in 2003 or 2004. Got to shake his hand and have him sign a CD. Odd guy, but I think he's great. The acid really comes through live. He takes sneer to an art form.

Interesting fact...he is the son of novelist Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove and others).

Sent you some Gaslight Anthem.
I put the new ep on first...then the cd....the EP is ok....don't judge them on the first few tracks.....the full length may be in my top 4 cd's overall in the past few years!!!!
