Jaime Wyatt's Misery and Gin


If you haven’t checked out Amoeba Records’ long running “What’s in my Bag?” series on YouTube, I recommend it. It’s easy to go down the rabbit hole watching different musicians point out their favorite records and films. The Shooter Jennings episode hipped me to Jamie Wyatt’s debut album ‘Felony Blues,’ which Shooter produced. I love it, especially her version of Merle Haggard’s “Misery & Gin” (written by Snuff Garrett and John Durrill) that closes the album. Jaime’s vocal performance, especially in those first two verses, just floors me.

It’s perfection.
