This week I received a copy of the latest Levon Helm Band's "The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Vol. 3" which was my favorite of the many new CD's I listened to this week so I made it my feature album on today's show. The 13 tracks all recorded between 2005 and 2010 feature great tunes from the spectrum of Americana.

Other new music worth mentioning are: Kenny Butterill  who has nailed the JJ Cale sound on his new CD "Troubadour Tales", local Eugene band The Stagger & Sway and their new CD "Fun And Games" and Old Crow Medicine Show (who is at the top of the Americana chart this week) with their CD "Remedy".
