Favorite Album of Today

“Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford” Everlast
I’ve loved his gravelly thick voice for a long time and if you’ve never heard his cover of Neil Young’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart”…then you probably didn’t get a mix from me during that two-year period when I put it on every mix because I just couldn’t stop listening to it. He also does the theme song to Saving Grace (love the song way more than the show!).
I guess they probably file him under rap/hip-hop? But he’s not really a rapper. Some of the lyrics are a bit rough and tumble…if you’re feeling a little murderous, they certainly keep you hyped up and may push you over the edge into actual violence, ha ha ha (I’M KIDDING). But that’s only some of the songs. And there’s his lovely bass singing over a kind of rollicking rambling background that is sometimes hip-hop-ish in its beats, but sometimes almost country.
