Options August 29, 2018: Gently Mixed Up: Michael Hurley



Michael Hurley at our session in 2004

Artist Track Album Label Approx. start time
 
Noted for his charmingly simple, story songs sung with a twinkle in his eye, Michael Hurley has to his credit so many solo albums that they're a little had to keep track of. A peripheral player/friend of the Holy Modal Rounders, Hurley is also a fine artist who occasionally adds his homebrew Snock Comix to his website, Snocko News. Lately, a younger generation has been discovering Michael's charms. In honor of his live show coming up at Union Pool in September, I'm re-airing a live set Michael Hurley recorded for John Allen and I, which we ran on our overlapping shows back in 2004.

For this live set with Michael Hurley, I discovered that back when it aired in 2004 John Allen and I didn't list any of the song titles. I've been able to identify some and will list what I think it might be. But if you know the correct ones please do let me know.

Thanks miles! I tried identifying the songs by a lyric search but it was difficult.
  Wed. 8/29/18 7:16pm miles:

don't quote me on that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/29/18 7:17pm Irene Trudel:

Well, it sounds closer to the lyric. I'll stick with yours.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/29/18 7:42pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Wilson. I'd forgotten how wonderful this set was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/29/18 7:43pm Irene Trudel:

melinda, I'm going to see him at Union Pool 9/20, so I thought this set was worth revisiting.
  Wed. 8/29/18 7:47pm Wilson in South Orange:

The way he strums and picks absentmindedly while he talks. He's so in it.

Michael's website is actually now www.snockonews.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/29/18 7:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like Lomax interviewing JellRoll...
  Wed. 8/29/18 7:59pm seedfriend:

I saw mike at what was the worlds oldest coastal spruce picking banjo on the day John Fahey died. Just random. Just perfect. Thanks Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/30/18 11:47am Irene Trudel:

Nice story, seedfriend. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/30/18 3:05pm Summer and Michael:

Irene, we don't see you on the new schedule. That can't be right, can it?!
  Fri. 9/7/18 11:08pm lufkins diner:

Thanks for a very nice Snocko show. The title of 'Everybody's Doin' the Old Time Thing' is 'Indian Chiefs and Hula Girls', which appeared on a 1988 release called Watertower, and the "Around the Curve' song is called "Me and Red", which appeared on a 1999 release titled Weatherhole. The Spanish tune Esqueleto is especially a sign of Mr. Mike's versatility. Very enjoyable to hear that for the first time. Thanks.
