Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Hardy Street   Favoriting This tune was written by Rick "Casper" Rawls of the LeRoi Brothers, one of many hot twangers from the Big Guitars crew 
Doc Watson  Liza/Lady Be Good   Favoriting Mark O'Connor joins in on fiddle on this very good "Lady Be Good" duet; from the Shanachie Flat Picking Guitar Festival, 1990. 
Darcy Deaville  Ducks on the Red River Jigging   Favoriting Austin fiddler plays with the ducks, on her 1991 CD, "The Last Hitchhiker on the Lost Highway" 
Bruce Langhorne  Three Teeth   Favoriting A snippet of a tune from this fine folk guitarist. I know his work from the 60s with Dylan, Richard & Mimi Farina and others; this is from the soundtrack to Peter Fonda's 1971 "Hired Hand" movie. 
Davy Graham & Holly  Forty Ton Parachute   Favoriting A 1970 album, recently re-issued on CD, from this British guitarist 
Rene Lacaille & Bob Brozman  Zok   Favoriting Incredible duet. Lacaille is a brilliant player from Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean; Brozman is a California-based stringster 
Bob Brozman  Dead Cat on the Line   Favoriting From his newest album-- "Blues Reflex"--Brozman does a couple of blues tunes, including this cover of the Tampa Red tune, originally done in the 1930s with Georgia Tom (aka Rev. Thomas Dorsey) helping out 
Bob Brozman  Rattlesnake Blues   Favoriting Another blues number from the new Brozman CD. 
Rene Lacaille & Bob Brozman  Zok   Favoriting I meant to play a tune from Bob Brozman's collaboration with Debashish Bhattyacharya but we got Rene Lacaille again. A great tune, hearing it twice is okay with me! 
Tau Moe's Hawaiian Jazzites  U Like, Noa Like   Favoriting Bob Brozman and Debashish Bhattyacharya cite Tau Moe as an influence. Tau Moe's Hawaiian Jazzites is one of many fine groups featured on Yazoo's compilation CD "Slidin' On the Frets: The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Phenomenon" (2000) 
Debashish Bhattyacharya  Hindustani Slide Guitar   Favoriting Bed (talkover) music here, deserves to heard in its own right

Ginger Baker  Satou   Favoriting Former Cream drummer play top quality world jazz, on "Horses and Trees" (Celluloid, 1986)-- with Nana Vasconcelos and Foday Musa Suso 
Yusef Lateef  Straighten Up and Fly Right   Favoriting This is Yusef Lateef at his best, from his superb 1966 "The Golden Flute" album, now on CD on Impulse Jazz 
Nat King Cole  Straighten Up and Fly Right   Favoriting "Cool down Papa/Don't You Blow Your Top" says the buzzard to the monkey in this 1942 novelty hit that Cole wrote with Irving Mills 
New Birth Brass Band  I Got A Woman   Favoriting These guys started out, some still in high school, as a funky New Orleans street band. They've matured "New Birth Family"-- produced by George Porter, Jr of the Meters--on Fat Black Records (2004) 
Ray Charles  Goin' Down Slow   Favoriting There's a scene in the movie where Jerry Wexler tells the young Ray not to sound like Nat King Cole or Charles Brown. This is early Ray and, though a bit derivative, he sounds pretty damn good 
Jimmy McGriff  I Got A Woman   Favoriting Another cover of this popular Ray Charle's tune--written when he finally came into his own-- played here as bed music. Hope you don't mind. 
Incredible String Band  Ducks on a Pond   Favoriting This tune on ISB's 1968 "Wee Tam" sounds as fresh and original as ever. Plus they sneak a little Woody in at the end! 
Roger McGuinn & Pete Seeger  Alabama Bound   Favoriting A few years ago, McGuinn visited a bunch of old folkie friends and came out with a cool album of duets: "Treasures from the Folk Den" on Appleseed Records, 2001.

Roger McGuinn & Eliza Carthy  Reel   Favoriting Another tune, an instrumental duet, from "Treasures from the Folk Den" 
Youngbloods  Sugar Babe   Favoriting Traditional country blues tune with Banana's cool guitar licks and Jesse Colin Young vocals, from "Earth Music" (1967)

Bill Monroe  Can't You Hear Me Calling   Favoriting Bluegrass classic to get us back on track 
Professor "Louie" & the Crowmatix  Jack-A-Roe   Favoriting Woodstock-area folkies do it up with this traditional British tune; Garth Hudson helps out on this album (but not this song) 
Donna the Buffalo  Man of Constant Sorrow   Favoriting Another traditional folk tune, done with a touch of ska 
Sara Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irions  Mornin's Over   Favoriting Nice CD from Woody/Arlo progeny: "Exploration" on New West, 2005

Janine Wilson  Breaking Up Somebody's Home   Favoriting This DC-based blues singer went to Austin and got Jesse Taylor & Ernie Durawa to play on her album. Find out more @ janinewilsonband.com
