Song of the Week: “I Wish It Would Rain” – Nanci Griffith

24 Oct

Western Washingtonians would probably object to this sentiment, but over here in the mountains we’ve just had drizzle and I’d love a real gulleywoosher. I first discovered Nanci when I was videotaping Austin City Limits for my dad. Someone he liked was the featured artist, and Nanci was the opening act. Her “Love at the Five and Dime” is what caught my attention, and I eventually picked up her The MCA Years—A Retrospective greatest hits album, and then later the wonderful Other Voices, Other Rooms cover album. I highly recommend both, even if you’re not big on country music.
