I’m a sucker for a good cover/tribute album, perhaps especially with an Americana / Alt-Country / Folk twist. This volume 2 came out digitally in 2017 but on vinyl in 2018 – Volume One was released in 2015 digitally and on vinyl in 2016 – it’s still in my wishlist. There’s a third as well, renamed to Busted Juicebox, that’s got kid songs on it.

Shovels & Rope is a duo from Charleston South Carolina – husband & wife, so hopefully no arguments about who is Shovels and who is Rope.

Featured guests include Brandi Carlile, Nicole Atkins, Rhett Miller, Hayes Carll, and many others.

My favorites are “The Air That I Breathe” (with Indianola) and “I’m Your Man” with John Fullbright, but it’s a pretty solid / consistent set of versions.
