Friday Random Ten

Here's the soundtrack for the morning. The day's plans involve taking my nephew to see Kung Fu Panda and very little else.

Go Celtics! (I'm not a big Boston fan, but I'd rather see Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen get their first rings than see Kobe get his fourth)

On to the music:

If That Ain't Country - - - David Allen Coe (live bootleg from the Belly Up in Solana Beach, Steve Goodman and I are sitting in)
La Cenerentolla - - - Rossini
Macbeth - - - Verdi
Winey, Winey - - - The Kingstonians
400 Years - - - Bob Marley
The Liberty Bell March - - - John Phillip Sousa (performed by the Marine Band)
Baba O'Reilly - - - The Who
Think! - - - Aretha Franklin
The Pill - - - Loretta Lynn
Lady Midnight - - - Leonard Cohen

Bonus Track:

Grandma's Hands - - - Bill Withers

I expect to have the Salsa Bandera recipe up sometime later today. My nephew ate me out of fresh chips and salsa yesterday. He wants more. We'll make more.

Good to see your post about "You Never Even Call Me by My Name" with its funny/poignant mention of Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my new 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the genesis of "You Never Even Call Me by My Name," co-written by John Prine, debunking the notion that David Allan Coe had anything to do with the classic final verse. Coe and Prine were among my more than 1,000 interviewees.

You can find out more at my Internet site (below). The book's first printing just sold out, all 5,000 copies, and a second edition of 5,000 is available now. The second edition includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575. It just won a 2008 IPPY (Independent Publishers Association) silver medal for biography:

To order a second-printing copy, see the "online store" page of my site. Just trying to spread word about the book. Feel free to do the same!
