Benmont is a massive talent who's also done plenty of work as a sideman for Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, U2, Johnny Cash and a ton of others.

Tom Petty's Wildflowers II with Adria Petty

Tom Petty crafted another of his many perfect albums back in 1994, this time with Rick Rubin producing. Wildflowers was released as a single disc, Petty's first for Warner Brothers. But Petty had always intended for it to be a double record. Those unreleased songs have been the holy grail for Petty fans for years. And now they're finally being released, thanks to the careful work of Tom's daughter, Adria Petty. In this special episode of Broken Record, Rick Rubin talks to Adria about her memories of her dad and the hard curatorial work of putting together the new box set Wildflowers & All The Rest.

Joe Henry

Joe Henry is likely one of the best living singer-songwriters that you've never heard of. But even if you don't recognize his name, you've probably heard his work. He's been at it for 34 years: having released 15 solo albums, won three Grammys and produced music for the likes of Elvis Costello, Mavis Staples, Bonnie Raitt, and his sister-in-law, Madonna. During her cowgirl phase in the early 2000's she turned Joe's song "Stop" - the one you're hearing now - into her hit "Don't Tell Me." Bruce Headlam talks to Joe about all of this plus the music that gave him strength after a cancer diagnosis and his work with New Orleans' legend, Allen Toussaint.

Khruangbin

Khruangbin will tell you they did everything wrong. Gave their band a Thai name, play mostly instrumental music, two members wear wigs, they record in barn ... and yet, they've had a charmed existence since they released their first record almost exactly five years ago. They've crushed the festival circuit, opened up for Wu Tang and found themselves on Obama's summer playlist. Justin Richmond chatted with them about their new album, Mordechai, coming off the road for lockdown right before they were supposed to do a run of shows with Tame Impala and how they're quintessentially Houston.

Burt Bacharach & Daniel Tashian

Burt Bacharach is a living legend. He's written hits sung by Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Costello, Dusty Springfield and so many more. With that kind of a resume, he doesn't need to still be working at 92. But he recently found a new muse in collaborator Daniel Tashian. Daniel just won Album of the Year at the Grammy's for co-writing and producing Kacey Musgrave's breakout, Golden Hour. Now he and Burt have teamed on 5 song EP, Blue Umbrella and have even more songs on the way soon. Burt and Daniel connected with Bruce over Skype to talk about their collaboration which started in-studio then migrated to file sharing after the pandemic hit.

Buffy Sainte-Marie

Buffy Sainte-Marie tells Rick Rubin there's a reason she isn’t a household name in the U.S. A pioneering artist in the Greenwich Village folk scene, she could've been Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell or Paul Simon. But in the early days of Vietnam when Buffy was singing protest songs about the casualties of war, she was blacklisted by the U.S. government. Her music was barely played on radio. But she still managed to find an audience with her classic songs, like Universal Soldier, which have been covered by Elvis Presley, Barbara Streisand, Courtney Love, Morrissey. She was the first Native woman to win an Academy Award. And even had a controversial stint on Sesame Street, teaching Big Bird about breastfeeding.
