Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez’s Red Dog Tracks (Back Porch, May 2005)

Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez are an interesting combination and by that I mean it’s a little stange to have an older man paired with such a young woman (at least when it comes to music). Their vocals intertwine young with the old, low with the high, grizzled with the fresh. Througout they are accompanied by Bill Frissell on electric guitar. Carrie plays the fiddle and sings while Chip is on guitar and vocals.

I like it though, as do many others, as Red Dog Tracks (their first on a major label Back Porch/Virgin) is at the top of the Americana charts. Here’s a couple old timey/folk songs from Chip and Carrie and if you’ve got the scoop on this couple leave it in the comments section. Buy it now through the bands site.

    I’ve been hearing this duo for a while now, and mostly I like them. You’re right – an interesting combination.

    Some trivia you may or may not know – Chip Taylor wrote the pop song “Angel of the Morning” which has been a hit several times over the last 35 years or so. I figure he must have a nice little income.

    Chip Taylor also wrote “Wild Thing” which was the big hit for The Trogs way back when.
