Chris Smither: Live As I’ll Ever Be

TOP FIVE CD TRADES OF 2012

Story by M.R. Poulopoulos

I stood in front of Chris Smither after his set at Caffe Lena and told him I had a gift for him. I handed him a copy of “Greenhorn,” and he smiled. “Here, take one of these,” he said. He caught me off guard. I said, “Are you sure?” “Trading’s cool,” he replied.

Trading music is cool, and it’s a practice songwriters and musicians engage in and enjoy after shows. So, in that light, I’m sharing my top five trades of 2012, in no particular order:

The Stray Birds’ The Stray Birds
Caitlin Canty’s Golden Hour
The Womack Family Band’s The Blue Room
Michaela Anne’s To Know Where
Chris Smither’s Live as I’ll Ever Be
