Shotguns, Dirt & Time

Monday, March 21

In the early 1970s, Willie Nelson briefly signed with Atlantic Records. Though the label had long had success with soul, rock and jazz artists, it had had little success with country artists. In the end, Nelson’s time with the imprint was short. His albums for Atlantic didn’t land him the major success many were predicting. We’ll hear from his 1973 release for the company, Shotgun Willie, on this episode of the show as well as selections from Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt, and Emmylou Harris.

When the band Little Feat stepped into a radio studio in 1974 the group probably wasn’t expecting that the performance would result in a widely-bootlegged audio recording. That release, Electrif Lycanthrope captures the band at the height of its early powers and displays Little Feat’s incomparable musicianship and sense of humor. The album finally saw official release for Record Store Day in 2021. We’ll hear music from it as well as selections from Harlis Sweetwater’s Diesel Dirt & Spit EP.
