April #3 - Annie Get Your Gone

3. Annie Keating - All Gone

The Swede begins his latest post thus: "How often, dear reader, have you opened a post of your own with the phrase 'I don't know very much about this lot, but....', or words to that effect?"

Well, quite.

I know nothing of Annie Keating, other than that I found her 2013 album For Keeps in a charity shop and took a flyer. Turns out that was an excellent move as this is right up my street: folky country rock... let's be frank, Americana... reminiscent of Lucinda Williams or Kathleen Edwards, both of whom I love. Although Ms. Edwards appears to have put music-making on hold at the moment to open a coffee shop in her native Canada... yes, it seems she prefers Americanos to Americana.

Thank you. I'm here all week.

Anyway, in the meantime, Annie Keating makes a very welcome substitute...


  1. New one for me Rol
    From those references once to check out

  2. Nice pun on Annie Get Your Gun, just added the 1950 film to my "musical watchlist". Yes, I'm such a geek that I have a watchlist for each genre of film.
    Good lyrics in that song, when someone lists all the stuff they "don't want", you wonder what they DO want.

  3. Very assured vocal. I enjoyed this one a great deal.

  4. Glad you all approve.

    Figured it might be up your street, CC.
