My Record Collection by Nathaniel Rateliff

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff, purveyor of some of the finest country soul you've ever heard. Let's see what he likes and hates...


The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"Led Zeppelin IV. Love that record."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"I would guess Bob Dylan's the Basement Tapes or Songs of Leonard Cohen."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"Soundtrack to Death in Venice, side A."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"I’m kind of always down so it could be anything…"

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Tough question. I’m not sure, the ones I think are underrated are probably rated pretty high, like Leonard Cohen's Death of a Ladies Man or Harry Nilsson's A Little A Touch of Schmilsson in the Night."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Again, Dylan's The Basement Tapes is pretty cool and Leonard Cohen Life Songs."

 

The record with my favourite title is…

“A Little A Touch of Schmilsson in the Night is pretty bold”

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"Oh man… Pretty much any big pop act. Any mainstream pop act."

 

The last record I bought was…

"I just bought a bunch including Otis Redding's Live at the Whiskey a Go Go."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2014 is…

"Ray Charles Live at Newport, is a great record I’m looking forward to trying to find it this year."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"Boy, I don’t know. There’s too many great records."
