Leo Kottke  Eight Miles High   Favoriting  
The Byrds  Universal Mind Decoder   Favoriting This is an amazing Byrds jam, a bonus track on the CD reissue of the 1968 "Notorious Byrd Brothers" album. The song later became "Change is Now" and the rest is history. Says 10 minutes but is only 3!

Davy Graham  Hardiman the Fiddler   Favoriting On all his other albums-- and in his obit-- his name is spelled without an E: Davy Graham 
Flaco Jimenez w/ Lee Roy Parnell  Cat Walk   Favoriting I once interviewed Flaco's brother Santiago Jr and he compared himself to his hermano by saying that he played Tex-Mex music and Flaco played rock & roll. Not quite but this tune rocks!

Listener comments!


hey, Steve! Good to hear you again!

this is an extremely sweet groove.

marc ribot is my hero....

it's your father's face
north guinea hills:

steve, you're killing it.... yum!

this smells like pierre bensusan

Nice, davey graham
Sean Daily:

First comment after those other seven comments! Woo hoo!
north guinea hills:

didn't davey graham die recently?

he did, ngh.
north guinea hills:

(checks wiki), the irony, i bought his shirley collins collaboration, "folk roots, new routes" 2 days after he died.

(i remember this b/c i went record shopping the day after my gf went home for xmas, and she frowns upon me splurging on records)

p.s. thanks, Cecile.


they do a nice metallica cover, too.
R&G used to be a thrash metal band and would play that stuff acoustically for the tourists...

correction, in a thrash metal band.
when the band broke up, they went acoustic.
Al R:

Nice show, birthday buddy! I wish you all the best in the new year (let's be fine in aught aught nine!)
north guinea hills:

my gf would hate most of this music. she from northern mexico, and hates most 'mexican' musics (she was already a big wfmu fan when i met her when she was still an undergrad in monterrey, nuevo leon).

she has a sort of a self-depreciation mexican complex
north guinea hills:

however, the same could be said about me and my Southern heritage until moved to NYC.
Jimmy Safechuck:

Flor de mal = flower of evil.

Nugent has not done a decent thing since this.

this last band had a pretty fair guitar player, Whatever happened to him? ;)
Jimmy Safechuck:

Muddy Waters was called Muddy Water back when he was still single.

Love this Whittier Blvd track.
Nice tunnies today Steve.

I think this is still Los Straitjackets.
they used to have a game on their site, and this was the background music.

the casbah is a great live staple of the Straitjackets.
north guinea hills:

los checkmates may be a faux latin band, but most of my gf's friend's bands from monterrey, mx speak and sink in perfect english. (they teach classes there at the universities in monterrey in english).
Richard D:

Pinetop Perkins be the MAN

ngh, most of the world can speak and think better in English than I can.

not sure why, but this reminds me of abby lincoln

now you have to play a cover of sweet home alabama, Steve, lol!

I recommend Killdozer's.

wwoz is fantastic.... and the brazilian is to die for.

2nd vote for Killdozer ( live set from FMU)...

hey i missed king's day... they do it up for that!

well, i got my fix!!

This Edgar Meyer and Bela tune.....beautiful

this is the version of Brenda Lee I really like
mike tp 15x:

steve so glad to be listening. youre selections are great. be well . the goombah of soul
north guinea hills:

are the "les amazones de guinee" from french guinea(guiana)?

who needs morris men!!??
mike in brooklyn:

wow. that Gumboot song was splendiferous
Danny from Boston:

First-time listener here. I like what I hear, Steve!
