The Boston Globe today features The Oxford American's 10th anniversary Southern Music Issue:
The Oxford American magazine's music issue is the best of both worlds: stories with music to match the words. Featuring contributions this year from Greil Marcus, Roy Blount Jr., and Peter Guralnick, among many others, the annual issue focuses on Southern music, which, of course, runs the gamut of blues, rock 'n' roll, jazz, country, gospel, and so on.
This year's 10th anniversary issue - which is on newsstands until March 1 and also available at www.oxfordamericanmag.com - comes with two discs of music featuring everyone from alt-country chanteuse Neko Case to bluesman Furry Lewis. (If you think the profile of Arkansas oddball couple Elton and Betty White is bizarre, wait until you hear Elton singing "A Jelly Behind Woman Blows My Mind.")
