MP3's & Playlists for Lost & Found, 12/12/2005 & 12/26/05

oh mama
it's not feasible

You Play the Black, and the Red Comes Up

Sorry for the delay in updates, but I'm here to hit you with a 2-for-1, 4 hours of funky acidic countrified slop! Holiday season has almost passed, sanity is slowly returning, and the underground and overlooked sounds have arrived at last. Throw away that tree before it dries out - and next year, keep the cats away from the tinsel! Our most recent expedition is directly below, as I dust off my oft-ignored compact discs, to see what bonus tracks, unaffordable 45's or stone classics I have in pocket-size...some technical difficulties can't keep the twang and reverb of it all from coming through loud & clear. Dig. And further downward find my mid-December turn, with a pile of funky 45's, some deep LP cuts on the rock tip, and a 30 minute set in memorial of those late greats, Otis Redding & Sam Cooke. Listen to this one first, it will only be up for a week or so! See you next year, and thanks for listening and all your comments & e-mails - keep 'em coming!

you'll have to die for it

MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 11/28/2005

soldier of love
checkin' the stash by the trash
told ya not to tail me

The Schemer

Surprise, there is a show after all! I basically only have one hand this week, so I have been dreading all the typing, sorry for the delay. But I'm a "warrior," and once scored a natural hat trick on 2 broken ankles, with a punctured lung, while unconscious - so this is nothing!

Pretty solid show this week, proving once again, the less I try, the better the show? Hmmm. Anyway, the opening set keeps a steady groove, packed with flavor - plus we have extended sets of funky and sometimes psychedelic blues, and psychedelic and occasionally rockin' pop...with quick asides for Link Wray and Willie Mitchell...for someone a-feared of typing, I'm sure rambling...Click on the Mandrake Memorial LP below to listen to the full 2-hour show, and check the playlist below when the trip turns strange!
