Double Shot Thursday

Another fun show in the can.  On a spur of the moment whim, we decided on the theme “Double Shot.”  Doubles of our favorite Bakersfield & Beyond tunes.  This was spurred by a local friend who donated a big crate of LPs that had been in storage for many years.  “Moldage” might be a better term that storage since mold had pervaded all the album covers.  The vinyl was fine, but the covers were suspect.  Amanda first wiped the all down with a bleach solution, which visibly cleaned them, but they were still moldy smelling.  Probably not a very healthful show, but a fun one.

The first of the moldy LPs was the great “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” by The Byrds.  A couple CDs and then the always smooth Waylon Jennings with his “Dreaming My Dreams” LP.  And so on.  The full playlist is below and here’s some appropriate clips.  Thanks for listening.

One new band that has made it on our radar is J.P. Harris and the Tough Choices.  These guys just nail that country sound perfectly.  Clever songs, great sound, excellent voice.  Sure wish their tour would come to the Bay Area.  I’m sure they are a hoot to catch live.
