Joel Paterson Lets It Be

By Bloodshot Records

As a follow up to his holiday album Hi-Fi Christmas Guitar, Joel Paterson will release a collection of vintage instrumental, guitar-centric covers of songs from the Beatles' catalog, entitled Let It Be Guitar! Joel Paterson Plays The Beatles.

The album - out on September 20th - features the guitarist's signature blend of vintage jazz, exotica, blues, rockabilly, western swing and country, and uses classic Beatles songs as a sonic template for the mid-century musical journey.

The album's pre-order link is live on both Joel Paterson's and Bloodshot Records' sites.

All My Happiness Is Gone

By Purple Mountains via Drag City
Friends are warmer than gold when you're old/And keeping them is harder than you might suppose/Lately, I tend to make strangers wherever I go/Some of them were once people I was happy to know.
