The forty-fifth minute starts with Russell telling secrets to the one guy you don't tell secrets to and ends with Russell holding the microphone, but not singing.

Basic Folk 64: Mark Erelli's 'Blindsided' - Track by Track
We get a track by track from New England singer/songwriter Mark Erelli on his new album Blindsided on Basic Folk! The record came out last week and is very Tom Petty inspired. Mark talks about how the late legend inspired the sound and even at least one song. We talk about the contributions from the players on the record, like when drummer Jamie Dick suggested a "Bo Diddley Beat" for the song "Can't Stand Myself," which Erelli had never tried before. There's lot of sweet, yet realistic love songs on this album that are appropriate coming from a married guy who's kids are getting older. And of course, there is his amaizng voice, which is on display on this record, especially on the final track "Careless."
It was a pleasure to welcome Mark back to Basic Folk! If you missed his first appearance, go back and listen to Episode 6 of the podcast.

Highway Hi-Fi: Desert Island Recordings - Nebraska by Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen was totally spent after finishing a grueling year long 140 date tour for his massively successful double record The River. Needing a rest, he rented a house by a reservoir in Colt’s Neck, New Jersey. His time spent there allowed him a little bit of respite from life on the road and time apart from the fans. He was able to fully take in and embrace his musical and literary influences, past and present. And while the quiet allowed him to take some time to reflect, he was dealing with insecurity, depression, and the immense pressure that he felt from all sides. And in the silence, he fell prey to a subconscious nagging about the unconnected dots from his youth. Like so many other times in his career, he turned to work and music to escape. However, in a rented room with nothing but his demons, the sound that sprang forth from the man was very different.
This is part two of our isolation albums: Nebraska by Bruce Springsteen

Rock Candy Ep. 112: Janis Joplin -Good Chet
We close off Women's History Month with one of the most influential women in all of music. Janis Joplin had a short career, but that doesn't take away from the impact she made. Her rise may have been quick, but it wasn't easy, she had many stumbles along the way. We look to demystify the legend she was touted up as, and show her true nature and just how full of life and humanity she was. She experienced her fair share of heartaches and used that pain to make some of the most emotionally raw music you've ever heard. Unfortunately, she also used unfavorable methods to try to conceal that pain. Her story is an amazing one, so get ready to hear about a true pioneer of rock.
