Thursday Morning Mix

Is there a more distinctive voice in americana than Frazey Ford? The only one that comes close is her former Be Good Tanya, Jolie Holland. Yet Ford's debut solo CD proves more cohesive and complete than any of Holland's albums. She also demonstrates a good amount of soul throughout Obadiah.

Also on this Episode, we wonder at the fates of two other artists. Why hasn't Amy Cook (produced by Alejandro Escovedo) caught on with our kind of radio? And how did Alejandro Escovedo himself finally make it to the top of the airplay charts?
