Friday Random Ten

First off though, please accept my apology for the dearth of blogging. I got stuff happening and really haven't had the time to sit down and compose anything of merit. I am kicking around some ideas. Stuff like trying to do a psych autopsy on John McCain's cognitive dissonance about Iraq, which springs from his congnitive dissonance about Viet Nam. Thing is, if you need to absorb and believe mightily in things that are not true in order to present yourself as somewhat sane, then, to my thinking, you are simply not somewhat sane, you're fucking deluded.

Anyway, I'm off to San Diego today. Dropping off truffles for Tartness, picking up supplies to make more truffles (I have an 80 lb chocolate order to pick up from Trader Joe's Pacific Beach), visiting the tailor to spruce up and have something distinguished to wear for the Hillary Fund Raiser (put on by the music industry's own She, Who Must Be Obeyed), then to top the whole trip off I am joining my aunt and uncle at the Viejas Casino to watch my cousin's dance troupe NightFire perform.

When I hit Random this morning, this was the top ten:

For the Sake of the Rock and Roll - - - Doug Sahm
Leave My Blues At Home - - - Duane Allman
Smoke Signals - - - I Brake For Pow-Wows
Message From The Master - - - BooZoo Chavez
Les Blues Des Vache Au Lait (Milk Cow Blues) - - - Clifton Chenier
Greezy Greens - - - Pink Anderson
All Through The Night - - - Cyndi Lauper (live bootleg, Rick Derringer and me on guitars)
In The Pines - - - Leadbelly
Ballad of Tom Joad - - - Woody Guthrie
Motorcylcle - - - Arlo Guthrie


Bonus:

Gotta Travel On - - - Bill Monroe (Emmylou Harris sings backup on this one)

What a great mix. I miss me some Doug. Loved the Tornados and all his other mucisal incarnations. I remember hearing about his demise while on the way to the studio where we were working on my sweetie's cd. Bummed us out for that night.

Doug was a true gentleman. i always enjoyed being around him. he knew his stuff too. he was an absolute monster in the studio, his ear was unerring and true. he's one of the few guys who i would let talk to me about my settings and voicing. mostly because i'd try it his way, listen to the playback and go "dude, you nailed that."
