Trouble - Ray LaMontagne (2004)
Before we get to Mr. LaMontagne, let's listen to him and Mr. Rice nail a Bee Gee's cover:
Arrrrgghhh, why is that so brilliant???!!??!
Anyway, Ray brings just as much power to his own work. The first song on the 365 with a previous entries' title, "Trouble" sums up what made us stop in our tracks and take notice of the record of the same name back in 2004. He has continued to release great albums, up to this year's God Willing & If The Creek Don't Rise, his first without producer Ethan Johns. There's not much else to say on the subject. The guy's just really good, and all four of his albums are welcome additions to anyone's collection.
First Listen: Balún, 'Prisma Tropical'
