Now, on to today’s playlist, a great showcase of the Old Guard still making great music, from Dave Christensen.

Dave C Says:

A couple of weeks ago I was reading an article asking how Keith Richards could still be alive ( They don’t really answer the question (best explanation comes from David Quantick – “It’s almost as though others die so that Keith Richards may live”), but he is still alive and has recently released an autobiography and a greatest hits album of his solo work.

In general, a sub-theme of this year seems to have been new albums from some of the elder statesmen of rock, from Jerry Lee Lewis through to Phil Collins; many former giants have been releasing new albums this year. Fortunately, in the way that the American Recordings of Johnny Cash or the Daniel Lanois-Bob Dylan albums did, many of them have used the age of the artist to their advantage in taking them back to their roots or stripping back to a more basic sound and on the whole they’re not trying to be something they’re not. Some are covers albums; others are originals – either way the songs on this playlist are from albums that deserve a play. These guys might be old, but they’ve still got it.
