MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 9/05/05

overlords of syncopation
powerful stuff
chasing down a hoodoo there

Too Much History

Easy show to prepare today, at least in a way - the real problem was cutting down to only two hours of all Louisiana/Mississippi artists! In a tribute to the areas hit hardest by the terrible hurricane of last week - and subsequent relief travesty - we dig deep in the county registers and learn that many so-called "Chicago" and "Detroit" artists were born in Mississippi - and that being a musician in New Orleans is pretty much a fact of birth! Many people went unplayed that deserved attention, I really wanted to play Eddie Bo and B.B. King but either forgot or just ran out of time...oh, and meant to squeeze in the Hillbilly Cat from Tupelo, too!

Alright, let's get to it Ol' Howard - just point your gun that way down Highway 61, click the trigger and let's get down with it! Full playlist just below, to keep track of all those misplaced Mississippians...and please check the links at the bottom of the playlist to find some charity options, including rare records being auctioned off to help with the relief efforts!

most went the other direction

    Hello there,

    I am absolutely desperate for a copy of 'Piece of My Heart' by The Sisters Love, andI notice it's in this show's tracklisting. Is there any chance you could you do me a massive favour and email the MP3 to djsolidsnail(at)googlemail(dot)com? I would be hugely grateful if you could.
