Highly recommend that podcast

Agreed. The Louvins episode is what pulled me in.

Are you still in NYC?

The Great Atomic Power Ballad (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 30 August 2018 14:55 (one year ago) link

Yah - I'm here for another two and a weeks or so. I'll bump a thread.

Now have listened to the Buck Owens/Don Rich episodes. Incredible stuff. This guy knows exactly what I want to hear.

Two things, in no particular order:
1) Don Rich had some crazy eating habits
2) The Buck and the Buckaroos bluegrass album Ruby is great.

Going to see if I can use the long weekend to make it through the three-parter (!) on “Harper Valley PTA.”

Yeah Tyler's no slouch. And he's a deep, deep music nerd -- the final episode of the season, when he responded to listener questions, he damn near blew my mind when he mentioned he was a Disco Inferno fan. Followed him immediately after that on Twitter.

Listening to one of the Buckaroos pretending to be Ernest Tubb during the Fun N’ Games section of the Carnegie Hall Concert.

one month passes...

No idea! I missed this announcement

Okay, some of these have been showing up in my Release Radar and sounded fine, just hadn’t put two and two together.

eleven months pass...
five months pass...

So hey, I wrote a Louvin Brothers pastiche once, which I kind of like. But I never had an appropriate project to perform it in or had friends follow through on their interest in doing so. I could post this lyrics here if you like.

I wrote this Louvin Brothers pastiche once and it kind of scared me, I felt like I was channeling Ira. I am posting it here in honor of this Holy Week of Our Lenten Quarantine. Stay safe!

Don't Be A Stranger To The Manger - James Redd
(Chorus)
Don't be a stranger to the manger
Don't keep your distance from the cross
Don't forget you'll have to answer to
The man upstairs who's boss

One day there'll come an onslaught
Of a great Satanic horde
When we fight that final battle
Will you side up with the Lord?

(Verse)
So many men and women
Pursuing gold and fame
Seeking out their own destruction
Like moths before the flame

They'll enjoy a few good hours
But at what enormous cost
When their one immortal soul
For eternity is lost

( repeat chorus)
(2nd verse)
On the stages of theaters (pronounced "the-aters")
On the floors of ballrooms grand
In the discotheques and nightclubs
Across this sinful land

You can hear their voices rising
In a great unruly swell
Is there anything more certain
Than where in the end they'll dwell?

(chorus)
