    I really enjoyed Handsome and the Humbles, The Westies, and Josiah and the Bonnevilles. The Westies and Handsome and the Humbles have a similar guitar lick at the beginning of the featured songs. 🙂

    Some good stuff here! Always nice to listen to some new music. I’m a huge fan of Handsome and the Humbles and “The Ballad of Rose Thompson” is probably one of my favorites tunes from their new CD, Have Mercy. Have to say, however, that it’s excellent from beginning to end. Can’t recommend it enough!
