Americana The Beautiful

Nick Spitzer’s show spotlighted New Orleans last week with an excellent two-hour show that mostly focused on collaborations during this year’s season. Many of the tracks feature the special visitors who dropped into Pres Hall in late-April and early-May, including Robert Plant, Nashville guitar great Buddy Miller, and . There’s also a couple tracks in there from excellent new record The Road To Memphis and a live recording of Jones from The Howlin’ Wolf. Also, don’t miss the Hot 8/Mos Def collab. Some really incredible material in here. Also, scroll down to the bottom and check out the 11-minute video montage of this year’s Midnight Preserves concert series.
