March 28th Playlist

While I was away from Thrice Removed, I was saddened to hear about the March 17th death of Big Star's Alex Chilton.  I played a few Big Star songs in honour of their frontman tonight, and I (rather lamely) attempted to express what a loss this is, but Paul Westerberg does a much better job in his article here.  This is my favourite bit:
"The great Alex Chilton is gone — folk troubadour, blues shouter, master singer, songwriter and guitarist. Someone should write a tune about him. Then again, nah, that would be impossible. Or just plain stupid."
Maybe next week we'll play the Westerberg-penned 'Alex Chilton', but for now, here's March 28th's playlist:
