Live Ledge #176: Bloodshot Records

Chicago-based Bloodshot Records has always been a favorite of mine. Over the years, they've put out some wonderful records by Alejandro Escovedo, Old 97's, Lydia Loveless, Graham Parker, and many more. They've also been the label responsible for tribute albums of the likes of Wanda Jackson and The Knitters, along with a number of other fantastic compilation projects.
This week, the label celebrated their 20th anniversary with the release of While No One Was Looking: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records. The two disc set features 38 artists covering great songs from the label's discography. Tonight's show heavily features this collection, including Superchunk's remake of Ryan Adam's "Come Pick Me Up", The Handsome Family remaking "1000 Dollar Car" by The Bottle Rockets, and many more. The rest of the show features samples from other releases from the label, including those samplers mentioned earlier.
