YouTube Saturday – The Jayhawks (Gary Louris, Mark Olson)

If you’re even just a casual reader of this blog you know that I hold The Jayhawks in the highest regard. Their debut record (although not officially their first) Hollywood Town Hall is regarded as a classic in style (“Folk music played loud”) and substance (lyrical content). Each subsequent record, even after one of the key members left the group, had elements that made it a must have record. Here’s an assortment of videos from the band and it’s main singers/songwriters (Mark Olson and Gary Louris).

“Salvation Blues”


“Baltimore Sun” from the debut Blue Earth

Gary Louris “Save It For A Rainy Day”
