ROB SEZ: Two of my favorite dB's-related artists are Marti Jones and her husband, Don Dixon (the same Don Dixon who co-produced R.E.M.'s first two albums with Mitch Easter). Here's a swoon-worthy live show by Marti with a string quartet along for the ride. It's from a pristine digital soundboard source, courtesy of lilpanda — a massive fan of Marti and Don's music.
REPERCUSSION: When Marti and Don were working on Marti's first solo album Unsophisticated Time, they chose two Peter Holsapple compositions to cover: "Neverland" & "Lonely Is as Lonely Does" (a song she covers in this set also). Surf over to Marti & Don's FB page to enjoy a recent beachside photo with Marti, Dixon, Peter H. & Kim Richey.

Marti's latest album is You're Not the Bossa Me (it's excellent!)
