11/26/2007 Good Noise


Notes on the playlist. The Freddie King/Don Gibson back to back was a flashback to the summer of 1975 when I would play these guys back to back on the 8-track player at the Deep Rock gas station where I worked. We had a speaker hooked up outside so the music would flow out to the cars waiting in line. The Big Maybelle/Esther Phillips back to back was because my first listen to either of them was on a duet album. The Freda Payne song Bring the Boys Home was written during the Vietnam War, but, once again, unfortunately, the lyrics fit with Iraq 35 years later. I had never heard nine of the songs this morning. Usually that high of a number means I've playing foreign language stuff, not just obscure soul tunes. Out until December, Dale
