T Bone Burnett

I first heard T- Bone back in the '80's. His Proof Through the Night and Trapdoor albums really struck a chord with me. They have been unavailable since right after their release until Rhino did a re-issue of Proof along with Trapdoor and Behind the Trapdoor. At $39, I thought it was kind of steep and passed on it until a friend sent one of the songs from Proof that he had digitized. I had forgotten how good this album was. I went to Amazon and found the album now at $65 for used copies! I went to ebay and found it at $37 and snagged it. Amazing stuff.

I think he's mostly doing soundtracks these days.

Here's a tip: If you have fat rolls on the back of your head and you can grow hair to cover them, please do so.

He's a prolific producer. Counting Crows, Los Lobos, Elvis Costello, The Wallflowers, Gillian Welch, Bruce Cockburn, the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, and the Walk the Line soundtrack.

A lot of his own songs have also been recorded by some pretty big name musicians.
