I present, for your listening enjoyment, two seemingly diametrically opposed playlists. The first, CROSS BRONX EXPRESSWAY, is comprised entirely of early, pre-1990 Hip Hop.
The second, LOOK, I MADE A ROCKIN’ CHAIR OUT OF OL’ STICKS AN’ STUFF, contains modern music inspired, informed and influenced by Americana, Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk, Gospel and other forms of traditional American music.
As different as they seem, I suppose they have something to say about the richness and diversity of American popular music.
Spotify users can just click on the titles to link to the playlists.
