Music Library: Alejandro Escovedo, Alex Chilton

More endless minutiae from my iTunes!

Alejandro Escovedo - More Miles Than Money. I like his songs live, sometimes better than the studio versions, but the version of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" on here is sad.

Alejandro Escovedo - Bourbonitis Blues. "I Was Drunk" is great. Everything else isn't. Many of these covers should have left well enough alone. One of these songs doesn't even feature Escovedo on lead vocals. I think it's Jonboy Langford.

Alejandro Escovedo - Gravity. S'okay.

Alex Chilton - Bach's Bottom. What a glorious mess! Trying to pull it together after the insanity of Big Star's Third, Chilton documents his utter failure and collapse. There's some sublime moments, but overall, this is the sound of everything falling apart.

Alex Chilton - 19 Years: A Collection. A best-of covering the man's best solo work (read: mid-80s and before) plus a bunch of Big Star.
