Hundred Word Highlights - February 2012

Hundred Word Highlights
Each CD review is guaranteed to be a full one hundred words, because sometimes ninety-nine and a half won’t do.

Mike Cooley
The Fool on Every Corner
In November of last year, Hundred Word Highlights reviewed Patterson Hood’s record Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance and this month is his partner Mike Cooley’s turn.  The Drive-By Truckers’ other half may be less loquacious and prolific than Mr. Hood, but he is just as talented of a songwriter and performer.  This live acoustic solo recording showcases finger-picked versions of his rock tunes along with a full glass of wit served with a side of sly winks and surprisingly keen insights. Cooley even picks up the banjo for an eerily wicked take on Cottonseed. Picks: Cottonseed, Carl Perkins Cadillac.

Buddy and Jim

Two of the brightest stars in the Americana firmament team up for this collection of country, R&B and good-natured rock. Buddy and Jim are well-respected musicians, with shelves of awards between them, but more than that, they’re friends and this record has that easy vibe of two buddies making music together. There’s not a Buddy song or a Jim song, they both own them, especially when their harmonies remind you of the Everly Brothers with a twang. The eleven songs won’t break any new ground, but that’s kinda the point.  Picks: Vampire Girl, I Lost My Job of Loving You.

Can I just say what a relief to uncover someone that actually understands
what they are talking about on the web. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make
it important. More and more people have to look at this and
understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.

Countless teenage parties have been spiced up by this funny little game, and countless adolescent mischiefs have amused millions of young people.
There you have it, folks, in a nutshell: the chief feature of My - Space is that it's quick and easy enough to use that you can post a bulletin or check a friend's page and be done in the two minutes that it takes your boss to come
over to your desk, suspicious that you're once again not working. Aside from making your self blissful you also carry others to be comfortable too.
