Live Ledge #194: Track 4

In the midst of my "trio of trios" shows, Gorman Bechard came up with an interesting idea. His suggestion was a series of shows where every song was the same track number from their respective albums. Doesn't that sound right up my alley?
Tonight is the first of these types of shows, and since April is the fourth month of the year that seemed like a natural choice. But halfway through the show, my friend Nick posted a screencap from an article that Elvis Costello wrote for Vanity Fair years ago. Discussing how he picked his choices for the best tracks off the 500 albums he deemed necessary for everybody to hear, he stated that if no songs were listed to check out the title track, or "when in doubt, play track 4 - it is usually the one you want".
The selections range from classics and personal faves to a set devoted to recent releases. There really is no reason why you shouldn't check out this episode. Grab it from Stitcher or iTunes, or...
