“Hello Again” f. Calexico (Live On Leno) (Video)

    Amos Lee’s Mission Bell was an unlikely No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 earlier this year, although its release in the quiet days of January may have had something to do with that. Lee brought in Calexico’s Joey Burns to produce the record, which also features appearances from Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson. Neither Williams nor Nelson appeared with Lee on Jay Leno’s show last night, but Calexico were called on to help bring this version of “Hello Again” to life. It’s the kind of dusty country track that Burns’ band has become so skilled at producing over the years, complete with mariachi trumpets, pedal steel, and Lee’s neat-fit vocals. [via The Audio Perv]
