LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T apes of concerts and interviews by everyone from the Beatles to the Undertones to Spizzoil to Madness and more remain in some grimy basement in one of the BBC's many locations throughout London.

The more we learn about Hank Williams III, the more it seems that every generation gets the Hank Williams it deserves. The three who've taken the name end up embodying the personal struggles that define the lives of young, white, working-class Southern men.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore's new album, "One Endless Night," was recorded on his Macintosh computer, but it has "the vibe of a bordertown roadhouse jam and the warmth of analog sound," according to one review. Another finds the artist's work "brings musical worlds together" rather than separating them.

Also, a profile of righteous Tucson babe Alana Sweetwater, Elvis' new son-in-law, and more.
