Big Guitars from Texas  Hardy Street   Options  
Marc Ribot y Los Cubanos Postizos  Aqui Como Alla   Options "Cuban Classics for the Post-Punk Generation" reads a sticker on the cover of this fine fine CD, from 1998 
Leo Kottke  Eight Miles High   Options  
The Byrds  Universal Mind Decoder   Options 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  The Road to Lisdoonvana (Jig & Reel)   Options Died 12/15/08 
Davy Graham  Rennaissance Piece   Options All three songs here are from "Davey Graham: The Complete Guitarists" on Kicking Mule; the CD came out in 1999 although the songs were recorded in London in 1977. 
Davy Graham  Hardiman the Fiddler   Options 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   Options 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! 
Marc Ribot y Los Cubanos Postizos  Aurora en Pekin   Options Started out as bed music, to talkover, but then it finished strong-- without me blabbing

Robert Rodriguez  Mariachi vs. Marquez   Options From soundtrack to "Once Upon A TIme in Mexico" (milan, 2003) 
Tito Larriva & Steven Hufsteter  Flor de Mal   Options Also on the Robert Rodriguez soundtrack album. I first heard of him when I saw David Byrnes' "True Stories" movie and Tito was with the Cruzados. Later Tito & the Tarantulas 
Salma Hayek  Siente Mi Amor   Options More tough love, again from the movie. She's the actress but sings okay too

Amboy Dukes  Baby, Please Don't Go   Options Just goes to show that even a creep like Ted Nugent can do a great song: even a broken clock is right twice a day!

Los Straitjackets  Whittier Boulevard   Options Masks & suits & guitars, en espanol. Go figure. 
Los Straitjackets  The Casbah   Options Snuck in here, not bad 
Los Checkmates  Western Union   Options In English, says the cover. Okay, I'm a sucker for faux latin bands.

  3:20pm Cecile:

he did, ngh.
  3:23pm 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.
  3:33pm Cecile:

  3:34pm 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...
  3:35pm Cecile:

correction, in a thrash metal band.
when the band broke up, they went acoustic.
  3:42pm Al R:

Nice show, birthday buddy! I wish you all the best in the new year (let's be fine in aught aught nine!)
  3:46pm 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
  3:47pm north guinea hills:

however, the same could be said about me and my Southern heritage until moved to NYC.
  3:55pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Flor de mal = flower of evil.
  4:00pm Mac:

Nugent has not done a decent thing since this.
  4:03pm Cecile:

this last band had a pretty fair guitar player, Whatever happened to him? ;)
  4:05pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Muddy Waters was called Muddy Water back when he was still single.
  4:11pm gumby:

Love this Whittier Blvd track.
Nice tunnies today Steve.
  4:12pm Cecile:

I think this is still Los Straitjackets.
they used to have a game on their site, and this was the background music.
  4:15pm Cecile:

the casbah is a great live staple of the Straitjackets.
  4:17pm 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).
  4:19pm Richard D:

Pinetop Perkins be the MAN
  4:22pm Cecile:

ngh, most of the world can speak and think better in English than I can.
  4:23pm annie:

not sure why, but this reminds me of abby lincoln
  4:23pm Cecile:

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

I recommend Killdozer's.
  4:26pm annie:

wwoz is fantastic.... and the brazilian is to die for.
  4:29pm GP:

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