LONESOME DAY BLUES

Here’s an oddly titled number from Doug Sahm and the Quintet’s 1969 LP Together After Five. It starts out as a shambling take on “Duncan and Brady” that somehow becomes Leadbelly’s “Out on the Western Plains” before it’s over.

Well, another week’s done and gone. A new one’s starting up at midnight, and so is BAK, spinning more great and crazy tunes for you, leading out with the “Gone Dead Train.” Following that we’ll be gathering dead flowers for Caitlin Rose, rockin’ out with the Clément brothers, spluttering wild with Joe Venuti and his Blue Four, and tagging along to a Dave Tarras gig with the Orkestr “Moskva”. As August rolls around we’ll hear another great, nostalgic hapa-haole tune from Marty Robbins featuring typically atmospheric lap steel, and then finish out the week workin’ the Kremlin alongside Roky Erickson and The Explosives.
