Up On Cripple Creek -- The Band On Ed Sullivan, 1969

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...

Kara Grainger -- Man With Soul

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...

Tony Joe White -- Even Trolls Love Rock N Roll

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!
