I got to send a thanks out to Big Tim Little for turning me on to the David Bromberg version of "Mr. Bojangles." I didn't think anyone could do Jerry Jeff better than Jerry Jeff, I was wrong.
My fav's this week are two CD's from last year that I just got a chance to hear. Amy Speace's song "Not The Heartless Kind" is awesome. Didn't think much of the album but she hit a homerun with that tune. The other is Devon Sproule's album Keep Your Silver Shined. Wow! I'll be playing some other songs from this impressive album.
I went up to the Doug Fir last week to see Or, The Whale. I think their album is marvelous but it doesn't even compare to seeing 'em live. They told me that they have another album finished and expected out in March of next year, I'll be looking forward to it.
Until next week, ciao.
