Playlist #1 notes.
Loved this JIM WHITE song for a while. I manage to do a version
of it occasionally. Jim does it better.
SUMMERS plays everywhere in the St. Louis area. Sometimes manages to get up to Chicago and Michigan. Sublime, fine player.
KEITH GORDON's CD came in
the mail, but it caught my ear. This is an old one too, gotta hear more.
MIKE FELTEN of course, is better than whiskey or sex or having Jesus change your
tire on a rainy night.
Learned this song from the late J.D. Smiley Lewis. A classic.
MOODY playing some great rock and roll from down in Alabama. Love to share a stage with this road warrior again,
EDDIE "CLEANHEAD" VINSON always been a hero to bald guys.
Sweet blues sound that you don't hear too much anymore.
WILKINSON from the Texas singer/songwriter tradition. Did a sad night with him at the Horseshoe in Chicago. Fan ever since.
PAUL COADY from the Edsel Brothers
or vice versa. This song stuck with me. If you play bars it isn't about how good you are, it's how much beer you sell.
Paul is a good picker and beer salesman.
JOE SHAVER is premium songwriter and the real deal, He walks it like he talks it. Better yet a pretty great guy.
RENEGADE RAIL. Just stumbled across this fun song and it won't
go away. Hope they are still out there somewhere.
CROSS is one of those great acoustic players. This song stuck with me for years. Got to hear him live someday.
BOB MARTIN has been a hero for a long time. Rumor has it that he
gives up music from time to time and lets real life intrude. Had a couple of classic albums in the 1980's. He seems more
rock now, but I like this one.
This is a young Paul Caporino on this version back before the whiskey took hold, He continues to tour in the long shadow of
his former self. Seriously, always on tour and in the studio, check out old buddy Paul.
BOTTLE ROCKETS. Couldn't get this song out of my head. For all
the guys on the road tonight with that red light flashing on the dashboard. Take it home safe,
