Song of the Day, November 19: You Don’t Know Me Anymore by John Tams

TamsDon'tKnowToday’s song is the glorious opener to John Tams’ finest album. By the time he recorded Home, Tams had a long career working with others and leading bands. He put together a sterling band for his first solo album, and they were a well-honed unit when he made the second. They provide a perfect musical setting for You Don’t Know Me Anymore, the first track on the disc. Tams is in fine voice, delivering a country-folk ache of a vocal as he looks at the end of a relationship. He simultaneously declares his independence and laments the loss of something fine. Straightforward but far from simple, it’s a wonderful musical statement and a standout in an impressive career.

Enjoy this powerful song today.
