This week on Cyprus Avenue, slinking bass lines, brass section breakdowns, and pedal lap steel? An aural expedition into the world of country funk music via a new compilation release from Light In The Attic Records.
This episode of Cyprus showcases some of host Bill Shapiro's top picks of 2011. With new releases from Hugh Laurie and Paul Simon, along with a partly-posthumous duet from Tony Bennett & Amy Winehouse, 2011 was a good-sounding year. And, since we can't provide you with the show's audio because of recording industry restrictions, below find some YouTube videos of Cyprus' chosen songs.
