The Best Songs You've Never Heard, Part 3


I'm going to post a few links to Youtube clips of my favorite tunes that have been criminally unknown. This is Part 3.  Part 1  Part 2 Part 4.

In no particular order:

"It Ain't Real If It Ain't You" by Mark Gray


Mark Gray was a country singer who never caught on, but this is a gem. His vocals are as soulful and meaty as it gets. Sadly, country fans probably ignored this song in order to pay attention to some line-dancing nonsense. I still have the 45 for this one.


"Nail It Down" by the Meat Puppets


I may be wrong, but believe that Dwight Yoakam's friend Pete Anderson produced this one. Straightforward rock and roll.
