Alison Krauss & Union Station "Daylight" New Favorite

In case you were wondering, J Mascis does misunderstand Richard Thompson, bludgeoning a great song and coming up with easily the worst cut on an otherwise fine covers collection. And while I've spent lots of time hyping my guitar heroes Robert Quine and Marc Ribot, I have to admit I'm a complete sucker for Jerry Douglas's dobro, too.
