What to Doc: RCA’s Studio B in Nashville is one of the most famous and epic recording studios in music history. In Leftover Feelings, two Nashville music icons, John Hiatt (who is finally being celebrated for what he is, one of America’s greatest songwriters) and Jerry Douglas, combine their talents during the pandemic to record an album in Elvis’s favorite studio. Check out Leftover Feelings: A Studio B Revival. (Use the code studiob for half off.)

+ What to Hear: Living in a highly vaxed area, I think I’m just about ready to return (masked) to some live concerts. And there is no band I look forward to seeing live more than The Record Company. Their new album just dropped. The title is also a directive. Play Loud.

+ What to Watch and Hear: Brandi Carlile made an appearance on Howard Stern this week and performed two amazing songs. Her own Right on Time, and a cover of Elton John’s Madman Across the Water. If you have Sirius, catch the whole interview. If not, here are the key outtakes and songs.

+ What to Book: What made the 2020 election like a barium enema? How did I end up with a rash that was a reaction to another rash? Why do I compare Steve Kondracki to the pile of cocaine snorted by Al Pacino in Scarface? All that and much more is in my book, Please Scream Inside Your Heart. Stop delaying and order the damn thing. You’re gonna love it. Amazon | BookShop.org | Green Apple (signed copies).
