You mean his dance to "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go," right? He tried to convince us it was BSS, but we know better! ;)

I listened to The Fish's comp this morning. Another fine creation on your part Paul. I salute you. I can always depend on you mixing in some artists I haven't heard anything by or others I know but didn't know these songs. One thing I've really enjoyed through your comps are the Dan Penn songs. I only have his live album with Spooner so hearing these other songs and in a more fleshed out form is a treat.

I listened to The Baron's again yesterday. It hangs together better than I thought after the first listen. I'm not sure why. Maybe I was expecting more country music and my brain didn't make the adjustment very well.
I'm all better now. :D I need a track list Brother M. I'm not recognizing much of anything and I like a lot of it so help me out. What's with the Happy Birthday song at the end?

Then I had to buy a car so I couldn't blow $600 or whatever it would've taken me to get up to speed for that. Then it was going to be Doug Sahm/Sir Doug but Charlie O was gonna come and he would be the go to guy for that. Then Charlie O backed out but Yves bought the box set so . . . you get a grab bag of my favorite things. Lucky you. Track commentary to follow.

Glad you dig it, Les! I really like the stretch from the Sir Douglas to the Alton Ellis. The beginnings and endings are a bit disjointed, I'm afraid. The other thing that fed into this was my minor obsession with older jazz and country music (which came out of or led to the western swing era), so there's a hodge podge of that sort of thing at the end. The Kid Ory track sticks out like a sore thumb, I'm afraid. I'll say more when I'm feeling more expansive.

I've enjoyed the other JU comps and have been more receptive to them than I have in the past. But they're at my office and I only listen to them quietly. I'll have to bring them home and blow them out a bit.

My mom is in the Baylor senior choir and they practice at a Baptist church in Waco. Recently there was a buzz and a bunch of security blocking most exits in and out of the church on their practice day. It seems that Willie Nelson's "stage manager" (my mom's terminology so who knows his real relation) had died and the private funeral was being held there. They didn't want any fans/rubber neckers crawling around the place to see Willie so they kept the entrance/exits to a minimum. I asked my mom if she knew who Billy Joe Shaver was because he lives in town and she said, "yeah, he's in the paper all the time, getting in fights in bars and stuff like that. Didn't one of them die?" I said yeah his son died several years ago. Made me want to see if I can find him while I'm there next week. I haven't had a good ass wuppin' in a long time. :lol:


Look three entries down. Poodie.

"At Locke's funeral in Waco on Monday, Billy Joe Shaver sang "Live Forever" and Ray Wylie Hubbard performed "Amazing Grace" on the slide guitar. Ables said about 1,000 people attended."

The Obit.

BTW, last time I heard, Billy Joe was under felony indictment. See him if he's playing!


One last party for Poodie.

Why does it look like Bobby Whitlock is the fan and The Fish is only reluctantly taking a picture with him?
