He shook it like a Harlem queen

A melancholy ode to the King, and one of my favorite Gillian Welch tunes. I have a soft spot for acoustic folk duos, having played in one in college. Welch’s longtime partner David Rawlings is a superbly tasteful lead player and producer. You pretty much can’t go wrong with any of the records in the Welch/Rawlings catalog; last year’s The Harrow and the Harvest is a great place to start.

Album and gear reviews are coming, once I find a spare moment…

One thought on “He shook it like a Harlem queen

  1. So I followed you over from the gtr1ab’s blog, listened to this song, and ended up buying The Harrow and the Harvest. I’ll have to be more careful in the future; reading your blog could get expensive.
