This one for the L'Man, a year early. Mr. Sullivan was so gracious, something lost today for many I hate to say. As for their place in time, Garth Hudson's smile says it all...

Consider this one artist you just have to see soon, Skip said so! This bad ass tune is off of Ms. Grainger's latest, "Living With Your Ghost," where she got some nice assistance from Anders Osborne, Ivan Neville and crew. Evan and I had the pleasure of meeting Kara at the Bradfordville Blues Club not to terribly long ago (I just happened to be wearing my Anders' tee that night) and made her promise to get in touch when she's in NOLA next for we will be there to laissez les bon temps rouler, cher...

Skip is in Louisiana on this Fourth with family visiting family, we sure miss him back here in Tally, wonder if he's come across any trolls as of yet, hope like this one in Tony Joe's tune, he's the "helpful" kind... Wikipedia offers that "A troll is a class of being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings... Trolls are sometimes associated with particular landmarks..." Rock On Skipster!

The Forecast (Calls for Pain) from Mr. Cray's 1990 Midnight Stroll powerhouse release, original and live in Austin for your viewing pleasure. If I could go back in time, methinks 1990 would be a year in the running for better than Cray and Company with the Horns, not likely...

Alexis just commented "Look, Dad's smiling." Bit of a rarity these days. So back to the music for that special release. Better than these two together, not likely...

Another gem by the great one of New Orleans, Allen Toussaint, describing his meeting with Frankie Miller who recorded in New Orleans back in the early '70s. Mr. Toussaint wrote seven songs for Frankie's killer second album, "High Life." Three Dog Night took it out for a spin as well in 1974 with just a bit of success. As my friend DeucE would say - "good stuff, great stuff, listen without prejudice." Amen Brother, a day early...
