Musical Obsession

A couple of weeks ago when I told you about The Old Lonesome Sound compilation I didn't count on this particular song having such an impact on my ears and heart.  Adam Arcuragi's take on "Ain't No Grave" is fantastic.  I've been listening to this song at least once a day since then.  It's interesting how he sounds like an old, grizzled bluesman--but in reality he's a crazy-ass Southern white boy.  All this goes into why I like the song:  it's new, but it sounds vintage and sounds like a freight train barrelling down on you.
