2 - COAL PORTERS - DURANGO (APRIL 17-APRIL 30) - (CD) 
PRIMA


Durango is the new album by ex-Long Ryder Sid Griffins Coal Porters. Recorded in Colorado by the legendary Ed Stasium (Phil Spector, Ramones, Smithereens, Mick Jagger) in two weeks of frenzied musical activity it is, says Griffin happily, "the best work I have ever done". Containing five new Griffin compositions, a bluegrass cover of Neil Youngs "Like A Hurricane" and musical contributions from Tim OBrien and PeterRowan this is why "alt-country" is the hippest slice of Americana today.

3 - COAL PORTERS - FIND THE ONE - (CD) 
PRIMA


Find The One is the newest album by ex-Long Ryder Sid Griffins new band. Produced by UK folk legend John Wood (Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, Squeeze, Beth Orton), it features 12 startling new tracks including a campfire cover of David Bowies Heroes and a bluegrass version of the Stones Paint It Black. But dont be mislead, the balance of the album is a fine collection of originals by Sid and other members of the band.Find The One also has a guest appearance by both guitarist Richard Thompson and Beatles pal/BBC DJ Brian Matthew. They may be UK-based, but The Coal Porters couldve all emerged form the hills of Sids native Kentucky where their music of choice was invented

5 - COAL PORTERS - HOW DARK THIS EARTH WILL SHINE - (CD) 
PRIMA


This is where the Sid Griffin went after the Long Ryders disbanded, he left Los Angeles, moved to London, and unpacked his acoustic guitar and his mandolin and got down to business. Featuring four of Sids strongest ever songs, truly stupendous covers of the Undertones "Teenage Kicks" and Guy Clarks classic"New Cut Road" - this is a release not unlike Chatham County Line or The Old Crow Medicine Show. Featuring guest appearances by Sids old pal Peter Case and one by Amy Rigby (now married to Wreckless Eric!) this music contains hope, heartache and happiness and is the product of a two year bout of touring, touring and more touring. Also contains the first bluegrass version ever of Dylans "Idiot Wind". What's not to like?

7 - GRIFFIN, SID - AS CERTAIN AS SUNRISE - (CD) 
PRIMA


Sid Griffins best solo album and, if the truth be known, only his second. Featuring ex-Small Face Ian McLagan on keyboards and containing a sincere tribute to his friend the late Sir Doug Sahm via the cover of Dougs previously unreleased tune "Just Let Her Go" - this is as classic as classy gets. The opening track, "The Last Kentucky Waltz", was a turntable hit in the UK and a familiar sound a few summers back andthe cover of the Flamin Groovies "You Tore Me Down" was used on the soundtrack of the successful Italian indie film Genoa, Genoa. The entire album chronicles the ups and downs of a marriage and this labeled As Certain As Sunrise "the folk-rock, acoustic answer to Blood On The Tracks" by The Sunday Times in London

9 - LONG RYDERS - LIVE 2004; STATE OF OUR RE-UNION - (DVD) 
PRIMA


The Long Ryders DVD - Simply the hottest yet coolest DVD you will ever see of the best American band of the mid-1980s. These are the guys who went "Looking For Lewis & Clark" and in doing so founded Alt-country and helped create Americana. This is the ORIGINAL LINEUP performing seventeen songs live at their 2004London show at their old haunt, Dingwalls, plus five extra songs featuring three clips of never before seen footage from their April 1985 show at The Gallery in Manchester and two previously unseen videos from A&M Studios in Hollywood from back in their heyday. This is hip, pretty baby...an energetic punk rhythm section meeting a Byrds guitar attack. There is a reason why the Long Ryders gave REM a run for their moneyand why, in Europe, they were second only to the Smiths in the hipness sweepstakes.

10 - LONG RYDERS - NATIVE SONS - (CD) 
PRIMA


Native Sons was the 1984 release by the Long Ryders, the founders of alt-country and cornerstone of what we nowcall Americana. It was a hugely influential album which Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Chris Robinson (Black Crowes) have both praised publicly. It was a number one Alternative/College Radio album in the USA and was the New Musical Express number two Alternative LP chart entry only because the Smiths Meat Is Murder was at the top spot. Acknowledged as a classic this reissue comes with the bands previous release, the EP 10-5-60s tracks as well as some extremely rare material from the same heady years when Native Sons was new and isnewly remastered.
