The Only Person Who Can Do a Good Bobby Patterson is Jeff Tweedy
Ladies and gents, Mr. Bobby Patterson as performed by Golden Smog on April 18, 1996, at a place called Cat's Cradle in Idunnowhere, Someplace. It's courtesy Captain's Dead, which, far as I'm concerned for the next four minutes and 34 seconds, is the greatest MP3 blog in the history of compressed music. And the rest of the show, with its Neil Young and David Bowie and Charlie Rich and Blondie and Rolling Stone and Nick Lowe covers mixed amongst essential originals, ain't bad neither. --Robert Wilonsky
