tunes on tuesday 2-11: McCartney, Driftwood, Seu Jorge, Fleetwood Mac, Martin & Brickell

Tunes on Tuesday is a fun new project. Each week I'll try to bring you five videos or audio files, each one focusing on a song, group or collaboration that just might pique your interest! If you have someone for possible spotlight then shoot me a private e-mail and we'll give it a listen. Hope you enjoy Tunes on Tuesday! 

NOTE: All videos may be expanded to full screen. Hit play then click on the icon at lower right.


From Paul McCartney's album "New" released at the end of 2013. Early Days is touching,heartfelt and sung with great emotion. If you're a Lennon/McCartney fan then you need to give this song a listen.


Out of Binghamton, NY, Driftwood is a band you need to catch as they drift through your area. This super friendly and talented group of musicians recently premiered their video The Sun's Going Down on CMT. 

Learn more about them at their website  http://driftwoodtheband.com/


Go Your Own Way from the 1977 Fleetwood Mac album "Rumors". The album stayed at #1 on Billboard's chart for 31 weeks and produced 4 Top Ten singles, including this one.


So this could go under the cover section of this post but it's so great I'm going to put it in World Music just so I can share it with you this week. Seu Jorge is a Brazilian guitarist who is probably best known in this country for his performances on the "Life Aquatic" soundtrack. This video is from the recording session of Bowie's Life on Mars for that movie.


Steve Martin and Edie Brickell earned a Grammy this month in the American Roots Song category for their song Love Has Come For You, originally released in April of 2013 on an album by the same name. Steve is an accomplished banjo player, often performing with the Steep Canyon Rangers, a band formed at UNC-Chapel Hill in the 1990's. Edie, famously fronted the New Bohemians in the 1980's and is married to Paul Simon. Both Steve and Edie have several recorded albums to their credit.

Loved them all, but with Binghamtom only 45 minutes to the south of me, how Driftwood has not been on my radar is a mystery to me! Thank you so much for brining them to my attention!
