Tupelo Honey Playlist 3/6/12

I had a listener phone last week and ask if I would play any of Bingo's songs. I said, "Huh?"

She told me he used to play in Portland with Pete Krebs and Lewi Longmire (both musicians I thoroughly enjoy).

I did a little research and found Kevin "Bingo" Richey. He's living in Joshua Tree and still playing tunes. The amazing thing about the find was his music. The stuff he did 10 or so year ago seems like it should have received tons of attention: Phenomenal songwriting, great phrasing and all wrapped in enjoyable melodies.

There's nothing like finding great music that's been right in front of you for years, you just needed someone to point it out. Thanks listener.

Till Next Week
