Your 3 and 7 tracks are pretty good. If I do say so myself...

My list is pretty darn good this week, dusty corners and all.

Apologies for blowing off your Facebook tag. I've had a killer busy week. FWIW, I'm sure you've seen more shows than me, and I'm even surer your recall of shows seen is superior to mine.

Right now I'm super-psyched for Wooden Wand and Akron/Family this coming Tuesday in DC. That show could, no, should be spectacular.

Sadly I had to cancel plans to see Simon Joyner at the Black Cat two weeks ago. His new album is mediocre, though, so if I had to miss one of the shows, that was probably the one to miss.

Ahab, you did call out the best tracks, indeed.

And don't worry about the FB tag--I never expect anyone to do those, just want them to have a look-see.

It's a good tag. It's got me reminiscing.

Blues-folk heavy even for my 1200. I'm going to remove the little check by Gary Stewart's mannered cover of the Allman Brothers. Little Walter is a recent discovery rescued from the two hours lost watching Cadillac Man.
