Bill Withers was born on the 4th of July, the perfect day to hear his lost song of tough-love for America.
This stunningly sparse song was buried in the demos for an album Costello wrote for someone else.
A stark, stunning slice of adult balladry buried in the middle of Costello’s supposed “return to rock.”
Jorge & Kevin put “New Lace Sleeves” in Costello’s 10…no make that 5…no, actually 2…best songs of all time. Or better. Hear ’em out.

It’s Al Green’s birthday. Celebrate it with the best Al Green performance there is.
