Options December 11, 2004: No Hootenanny Tonight

Listen to this show: RealAudio

Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Boomerang   Options Wild twang intro. 
Alan Freeman & Frank Beal  Redwing   Options Woody Guthrie turned this into "Union Maid" ("You Can't Scare Me, I'm Sticking to the Union") 
Adrian Legg  Frank the Part Time Clown   Options Brit Guitarist Legg;s 1993 album-- "Mrs. Crowe's Blue Waltz"-- probably has nothing to do with FMU DJ Tom. 
Lloyd Green  The Cave   Options Nashville in 1966/67 couldn't deal with this styish guitar player, say the liner note to "The Little Darlin' Sound of Lloyd Green" (Koch, 2004). He also played on the Byrds' great "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album. 
Michael Bloomfield  I Am A Pilgrim   Options from "If You Love these Blues, Play 'Em as you Please" (Kicking Mule, 2004) 
June Gardner  Tennessee Waltz   Options Sweet country classic funked up in New Orleans; Gardner was Sam Cooke's drummer. 
Dwight Yoakum  Train in Vain   Options "Under the Covers" is a collection of tunes, some great, some not so, that DY did in 1993. Ralph Stanley sings backup on this Clash song! 
Tommy Steele  Singing the Blues   Options British rockabilly cover of great 50s tune, a hit for both Guy Mitchell and Marty Robbins. On CD of songs that influenced the Clash that MOJO Magazine put out. 
The Clash  I Fought the Law   Options Written by Sonny Curtis (one of Buddy Holly's Crickets), the song was a hit in 1966 for the Bobby Fuller Four and has been covered by many. And the Clash do a pretty good job with it. 
Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros  Yalla Yalla   Options Former Clash Frontman Strummer always had interesting things to day. So sad he is gone. 
Johnny Cash  I Never Picked Cotton   Options This country song could have been sung anytime during JC's long career but it's from his 1996 "Unchained" album. 
John Hartford  I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow   Options A bittersweet banjo tune, from the soundtrack to "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" 
Laura Cantrell  Little BIt of You   Options From Laura's "Not the Tremblin' Kind" album 
Courtney & Western  Hands Off   Options A Diesel Only 45, Courtney Lee Adams and band 
Robyn Hitchcock  Creeped Out   Options On his recent CD-- "Spooked" on Yep Roc-- former Soft Boy works with American country folkies Gillian Welch and David Rawlings 
Leonard Cohen  Go No More A-Roving   Options New LC CD-- "Dear Heather" (Columbia, 2004) 
Wilco  Hummingbird   Options Grammy-nominated, strong songs, good harmonies. 
Kenneth Threadgill  Silver Haired Daddy of Mine   Options Austin legend: Yodeler, restauranteur, Janis Joplin booster. 
Wilco  Wishful Thinking   Options This is a nice song-- Beatle-esque-- but it doesn't fit here. Played by mistake, it messed up the set. Apologies to Kenneth Threadgill. 
Commander Cody & his Lost Planet AIrmen  Lost in the Ozone   Options Now we're talking. These guys played the Armadillo a lot, always a good time when they did. Thirty years later, some of those bandmembers ended up in some interesting (musical) places. 
Butch Hancock with Jimmie Gilmore  Bluebird   Options These guys moved to Austin, from Lubbock, in the early 70s and made a huge impact. This tune is from "Own & Own"-- a great Demon Records collection of Butch tunes. 
Greezy Wheels  Country Music and Friends   Options Another Austin hippie band, Armadillo regulars. In 1976, London Records put out an album of their stuff. 
Greezy Wheels  Heartburn (I'm a Menace)   Options Fiddler Mary Egan was the band standout. 
Joe Ely  Oh Boy   Options Lubbock boys, Joey does Buddy 
Mark Brine  New Blue Yodel   Options NY singer-songwriter moved to Nashville after this Diesel Only 45 came out. What ever happened to him? 
Kenneth Threadgill  Coming Back to You My Texas   Options This is the tune that Kenneth did in Willie Nelson's "Honeysuckle Rose" movie 
Yoon Il-Lo  Guitar Boogie   Options Korean take on C&W tune 
Ernest Tubb & George Jones  Half a Mind   Options The first time at the wrong speed; better the second time. Roger Miller wrote this tune, by the way. 
Little Jimmie Dickens  Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go)   Options Written by Boudleaux Bryant, recorded in 1954. 
Ramblin' Jack Elliot  Intro/T for Texas   Options A 1957 live performance at Isle of Wight: "The Lost Topic Tapes" on Hightone 
Everly Brothers  So Sad to Watch Good Love Go Bad   Options 1960 hit written by brother Don. 
Everly Brothers  Walk Right Back   Options Another song written by Buddy Holly bandmate Sonny Curtis of the Crickets-- who wrote "I Fought the Law" played earlier. 
Old & In the Way  Land of the Navajo   Options Peter Rowan wrote this song and plays here with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and others on a rousing bluegrassy album from 1975/ 
Frankie Laine  Moonlight Gambler   Options 50s pop singer-- one of the biggest in his day-- had a Western flair. Still alive in his 90s. Bob Hilliard, who wrote this song, died in 1971; not recently at all. 
Louise Massey & the Westerners  My Adobe Hacienda   Options On Rounder Record's 1997 compilation: "Don't Fence Me In: Western Music's Early Golden Era". The title tune (sung by Roy Rogers) written by that great cowboy songwriter Cole Porter. 
Dean Martin/Rick Nelson  My Rifle, My Pony and Me   Options Corny Hollywood, with John Wayne intro 
Ennio Morricone  Una Pistola Per Ringo   Options Cowboys from Italy! 
Juan Gaytan y Frank Cantu  El Contrabandista   Options Outlaws in 1934. Corridos are those great topical Mexican story songs-- often about controversial subjects. Rounder just did an entire CD of corridos about drugs: "The Roots of the Narcocorrido" includes tunes from the 1800s! 
Freddy Fender  Bailando El Rock & Roll   Options Freddy knew how to rock back then; had piles of Tex Mex hits like this. Too bad the CD skipped. 
Freddy Fender  Tell It Like It Is   Options A more soulful song, his take on Aaron Neville. Freddy spent some "time" in the New Orleans area, at Angola Prison on a pot charge. Huey Meaux, the Crazy Cajun, produced some of his biggest hits. 
Freddy Fender  Corrina Corrina   Options Not rock at all but a cool Tex Mex version of a great old song from the guy born as Baldemar Huerta. 
Nashville Bluegrass Band  Garfield's Blackberry Blossom   Options From "Twenty Year Blues" (Sugar Hill, 2004) 
International Submarine Band  Knee Deep in the Blues   Options Mediocre music but a great vocal from a young Gram Parsons in 1967. On Sundazed. 
Flying Burrito Brothers  Christine's Tune (Devil in Disguise)   Options Gram cooks, with a great band. This tune first appeared on "Gilded Palace of Sin" 
Asylum Street Spankers  Digga Digga Do   Options Contemporary playful Austin band; song cuts off abruptly. 
LA Brown  No Hootenanny Tonight   Options From "Just Shuckin' Around 1953-1963 Wild & Crazy LA R&B" on Panic Records 
The Treniers  Bald Head   Options Raunchy R&B brothers cover Professor Longhair on the "Hoss Allen Sessions" 
Professor Longhair  Tipitina   Options Fess tinkles those New Orleans keys-- no one does it better than him. 
Professor Longhair  Mess Around   Options This one rocks too. I saw this guy play at the Village Gate in the late 70s, just a few years before he died. 
Ernie Hawkins  Lightnin's Hideaway   Options A Freddy King number, from "Mean Little Poodle" on Say Mo' Music.
