When I first put Mose Allison's "Your Mind is on Vacation" (and your mouth is working overtime) on my playlist, I just thought it was a cool tune. Now I realize it is a sort of humorous critique of the presidential campaign.
Nick Lowe had the Cactus Blossoms warming up for him on his recent tour (which I braved the Atlanta traffic to see), so I thought I would replicate that with a CB/NL back-to back.
Jerry Reed did "In my own Backyard," a sort of Ray Charles-like old school R&B thing. But to show the extent of his talent, we listened to him pick with Chester Atkins on "Old Man River."
We reprised Woodrow the Guthrie, with a couple.
Who knows, maybe within a couple of weeks the internet stream will be back.
