    One good thing about living in Europe: Once my records arrive someone has already put them in discogs

    Right, I’m usually team BOTS, I’m not used to having to wait to catalog my shipment.

    My favorite part of BOTS + West Coast is occasionally forgetting what I ordered and finding a few surprises in the mail. It's like drunk Amazon shopping with more sobriety

    Just wanted to say VMP got this all straightened out and my missing record is on the way

    Wanted to apologize if this came off aggressive and posted in the wrong place been fighting a sinus infection for the better part of a month and not feeling well lately has turned me in to a bit of a jerk at times

    Are you me? I grew up with parents who loved country and barely knew any other music existed before I was like 10 years old. I resent country music and I don't consider my bias irrational lol. I really do believe that popular country music, especially everything I've had the displeasure to hear that's come out since around the turn of the millennium, is legitimately an inferior genre of music, not just "not for me," but objectively bad.


    I do like Willie Nelson, because he transcends country music. And some Patsy Cline songs. Johnny Cash is cool. But it's reaaallly slim pickins for me after that. I'm sure if I really wanted to expend a ton of energy I could listen to some recommendations, hidden gems, etc. but it's not really worth the effort to me.


    I do really like when the Stones or Bob Dylan do country-influenced stuff, go figure.



    Steam Pts. 1 and 2 speak to me on some ancient, primordial level. Don't know why.

    Have you listened to Sturgill Simpson? I think he transcends country and his lyrics are really great as well.

    I also love when the Stones made homages to country music. Also, Dylan really showed off that he has a range to his singing voice during his crooning phase.

    Well, we both do share an overwhelming affinity for the works of Julius Pepperwood and all subsequent Zombie related humor.

    Sooo...yeah, very possible.

    On my death bed, I imagine I will have but one regret: not signing up for Classics early enough to get Shepp and Hooker.

    Well damn. In that case we may have to make a run to discogs so it won't be your life's one big regret.

    You forgot to heap praise on Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings and Ashley Monroe and Kacey Musgraves.

    There’s a lot of great country and Americana performers and a lot of bad ones. Just like there are tons of great jazz performers and some really mediocre ones. The Wynton marsalis’ come to mind.
