this is....... not the best version of diesel smoke, to be gracious.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:04pm Julea:

It's interesting! I like to switch it up every now & then. I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. Plus I love everything Grady Martin did. But yeah, there are more rockin' versions of DSDC out there for sure. ;)
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:05pm glenn:

oh, grady's fabulous. it's the burl ives part that ruins it.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:08pm glenn:

i also think it's a bad idea to try and redo a minor key song in a major key.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:08pm Julea:

Ha! To each his own. ;) I'm trying to feature every version of "Diesel Smoke" at some point. I'm working on getting my hands on Foy Willing's version, which is apparently the first recorded version!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:09pm Julea:

Yeah, the minor to major thing can be tricky to pull off.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:09pm glenn:

you COULD do an entire red simpson show. i would praise you.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:10pm Julea:

I did, just a few weeks ago!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:11pm Julea:

Right after he passed. I think it's up in the archives.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:11pm Julea:

But I might have to do another one at some point. You can never have too much Red Simpson in your ears.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:12pm glenn:

i missed it, and you're right. he's the howlin' wolf of truckin' music.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:13pm Julea:

Red's the man. He called me on the phone, out of the blue, just a few hours before he passed away!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:14pm Debbie D.:

I love hearing all the different versions!!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:14pm glenn:

oh oh. don't let dolly parton call you.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:15pm Julea:

It's fun! I still don't know if I've heard them all. I'm on the hunt for the Foy Willing version and Gene Autry's version.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:16pm Julea:

I would probably be the one to keel over if Dolly called me, lol! I would hopefully be able to handle myself, but I would probably turn into a babbling school girl and sound more like Chris Farley when he interviewed Paul McCartney in that SNL skit. ;)
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:18pm glenn:

yes. and then chris farley died.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:21pm Julea:

Yep. See. That would be me. I think I might could die a happy woman after hanging out with Dolly.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:28pm glenn:

is this faron warmer on plantation records, by any chance? it's got that shelby singleton vibe to it.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:31pm Julea:

"Jo-Ree Records." Out of Phoenix I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/28/16 7:32pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Happy Thursday! This is a great warm up show for Wanda Jackson tonight!!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:32pm Julea:

"The Switch" that we just heard was the flip side to "Cruisin' Central."
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:33pm Julea:

Howdy Glynis! Woohoo, that'll be a great show! She's playing at the Nashville Palace in March, I am so excited. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/28/16 7:34pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

My pal Andy is opening for her too, I've known him for 20 years but have never seen him play! I'm really stoked!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:35pm Julea:

Sounds like fun! Glad you're having a blast in San Diego. :)
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:45pm Debbie D.:

Germani Country!!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:47pm Julea:

Oh yeah!!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 7:47pm Debbie D.:

Hey Glynis! Please request "Big Iron Skillet" tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/28/16 7:57pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Ha! You betcha!
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 8:03pm Debbie D.:

Have fun. Night y'all.
Avatar Thu. 1/28/16 8:04pm Julea:

Night! Thanks for listening and saying hey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/28/16 8:04pm Santos L. Halper:
