Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Bulldoggin' Boogie   Options good morning! 
The Des Champs Orchestra  It Takes a Thief   Options Gee, when I played this at 6 am this morning it didn't so much like television. Not bad for TV but still TV. 
Casey & the Pressure Group  Venus   Options Another one, this one a little more interesting. Oh well. 
Earl King w/ Roomful of Blues  Somebody's Got a Tail   Options A nice collaboration, New Orleans r&b guitar backed up by Rhode Island horns; from a 1986 album called "Glazed" (after King's donut shop hangout) on Black Top Records. 
Grateful Dead  Sugar Magnolia   Options Scratchy vinyl bootleg with the labels flipped, so I played the wrong side. Good though. Except for the sour vocals. Sorry boys. 
Old & In the Way  Land of the Navajo   Options Western myth in this Peter Rowan tune, done with a snazzy combo: Garcia on guitar, David Grisman playing mandolin, Vassar Clements on fiddle 
Peter Rowan  The Gypsy King's Farewell   Options Another Peter Rowan song, this one with help from Flaco Jiminez, Mike Seeger, Alice Gerrard and others 
Earl King  Lonely Lonely Nights   Options A New Orleans hit from 1955, on Johnny Vincent's Ace Record label 
Eddie Bo  SGB   Options Edwin Joseph Bocage, New Orleans piano player/songwriter, had more hits for other people than his own hits. The Bocage family has been playing funky jazz in NO for decades; Eddie Bo carried on that Professor Longhair tradition until his dealth last week. Cool fellow. 
Barbara George  Something You Got   Options Eddie Bo produced this 1967 hit for Barbara George; it's included on an Eddie Bo compilation album, "In the Pocket with Eddie Bo" on VampiSoul (2008) 
Beausoleil  Little Darlin'   Options Written by Julie Miller, done Cajun style on new CD: "Alligator Purse" (Yep Roc). Vocal help from Natalie Merchant plus John Sebastian on harmonica 
Buddy & Julie Miller  What You Gonna Do Leroy   Options Robert Plant helping out on vocal 
Van Morrison  The Way Young Lovers Do   Options From his recent live remake of "Astral Weeks" -- a great tune 
Roswell Rudd  Bone Again with Bonerama   Options This guy is an amazing jazz character, a trombonist & ethnomusicologist who collaborates with musicians from Mali and Mongolia; this is from a new album, "Trombone Tribe" on Sunnyside 
Amadou & Mariam  Bozos   Options Great song title for album with French lyrics; check out this new CD: "Welcome to Mali" (Nonesuch, 2009) 
Getatchew Mekura  Yegenet Muziqa   Options From another Ethiopian collection. Didja see this guy play this summer at the FMU outdoor bash at Lincoln Center? Wow. 
Kasbah Rockers w/ Bill Lasswell  Bred Atay   Options An interesting new album of songs in French and Arabic covering Moroccan street culture 
Chris Ajilo and his Cubanos  Ariwo   Options No info on this excellent CD from Honest Jons-- "Marvellous Boy: Calypso from West Africa"-- but a bunch of the musicians are from Sierra Leone 
Har-You Percussion Group  Welcome to the Party   Options Former FMU DJ Montego Joe was the leader of this large group of drummers; released in 1967, now available on CD on ESP Disk. 
Antony & The Johnsons  Aeon   Options This guy's getting lotsa press too. From "The Crying Light" on Secrectly Canadian 
Elizabeth Cotton  Wilson Rag   Options On the record and inner label, it says "Negro Folk Songs and Tunes" but Folkways dropped the Negro on the album jacket. Times changed from when this was recorded in 1958! 
Dry Branch Fire Squad  Echo Mountain   Options A sad story-- "the cries on Echo Mountain still haunt me to this day" 
Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem  Johnny I Hardly Knew You   Options "You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg, you're an armless, boneless, chickenless egg. You'll have to put out a bowl to beg. Johnny I hardly knew ye." "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"-- one of the best known American patriotic songs-- was written in the 1860s and sung during the Civil War. Some say that the tune is based on this Irish anti-war ballad. 
Jimmy Smith  When Johnny Comes Marching Home   Options Kenny Burrell on guitar; recorded in Japan in 1993 
Greg Ribot  Mambalypso   Options Brother Marc plays guitar on a couple of cuts from Greg's terrific new album but this tune has Bill Ware on vibes. For more info on the CD-- "Lengua sin Palabras"-- go to gregribot.com 
Jazz Mandolin Project  Hang Ten   Options From their 2000 Blue Note CD "Xenoblast" 
Joel Plaskett  Light of the Moon   Options This guy has a rock & roll soul. The tune starts off in an odd way, scratchy vocals and all, but he turns it into a great song. He's from Nova Scotia and I'm surprised we haven't heard more from him 
Evan Johns & the H-Bombs  Under the Willows in Dixie   Options This rowdy Austin guitar slinger is one of the Big Guitarists. A backhanded compliment: I'm impressed that he wrote this song! 
Neko Case  People Got A Lotta Nerve   Options She's hot these days. Congrats! 
Anita Carter  I Won't Change for You   Options Omni put out a collection of 28 tunes, drom the 60s & 70s plus a bunch of cool duets. The album is called "Songbird" 
Carter Family  Come Back Home   Options This is Anita, June and Mother Maybelle-- not the earlier generation. A little sacharine. 
Chris Gaffney  Loser's Paradise   Options Title cut from 1995 Hightone solo album. Chris is more often found playing guitar for Dave Alvin or in the Hacienda Brothers. Thanks to Ken Levy for lying this CD on me. 
Bonnie Prince Billy  You Can't Hurt Me Now   Options aka Will Oldham, prolific songwriter who has great musicians joining him, wherever he goes. This new CD-- "Beware"-- is on Drag City 
Flatlanders  Midnight Train   Options Joe Ely sings lead on this one. These Texans will be in NYC at BB KIngs on April 9. 
Butch Hancock  Personal Rendition of the Blues   Options This Flatlander writes amazing songs. This one is from a 1979 album that Butch & Lloyd Maines produced-- "The Wind's Dominion"-- when they were still in Lubbock. It's now on CD. 
M Shanghai String Band  Cookie Jar   Options Fine local band with snazzy new album-- "The Mapmaker's Daughter". They'll be on Irene's show on April 6, then go to CD release party Tuesday, April 7, at Joe's Pub 
M Shanghai String Band  Meteor Storm   Options What a sweet tune!! 
Dexter Romweber Duo  Lonesome Train   Options From "Ruins of Berlin" (Bloodshot, 2009). With sister Sara on drums on Exene Cervenka on vocals 
Dexter Romweber Duo  People, Places and Things   Options  
James Talley  Daddy Just Called It The Blues   Options James had a major label release-- "Blackjack Choir"-- on Capital in 1977. I think he's still around but haven't heard anything in a long time. Anyone know what he's up to? 
Damian & Stephen Marley  Calypso Blues   Options

  Sat. 3/28/09 6:50am steve krinsky:

Gee, nice to hear from you all. I was too frazzled this week to send out an email saying I was on. And it's early: this show will sound better (to me) when I listen to it later on the archive. But I got the groove now.
  Sat. 3/28/09 6:53am Zach in Philly:

Thanks for the note about the email. I was hoping I hadn't fallen off the list.

Lovin' the title and the tune "Bone Again with Bonerama"!

Are you going to the Flatlander's show at B.B. King's on the 9th?
  Sat. 3/28/09 8:33am Zach in Philly:

Chip, I was aloof to the fact that they were playing that close. Don't see myself making up there per work being so crazy these days. Saw them a few years ago... good stuff. Thanks for pointing it out.
  Sat. 3/28/09 8:35am steve krinsky:

Probably too expensive but we'll see.
  Sat. 3/28/09 8:50am Zach in Philly:

  Sat. 3/28/09 7:17pm The Blackhole of Clifton:

You played the Grateful Dead. Normally, you would have to be sent on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney for that crime against humanity. Fortunately for you, the rest of the show gets an A+.
