ODDS & ENDS

“Dear God, it’s late. I hope I didn’t get you up . . .
You see, God . . . my daddy needs straightening out. . . .”


Porter Wagoner • Little Boy’s Prayer • 1970

Find it: The Rubber Room

  1. It's a mystery to me why Porter isn't as feted as some of his contemporaries. He made some really great records.

    1. Agreed, Mr Swede! Though I've loved "A Satisfied Mind" for decades now, it's only recently I've begun to dig around in his catalog and there's more than enough to keep me catching up for years to come. . . .

    2. It doesn't get much better (or weirder!) than 'The Rubber Room'!

    3. Song, yes. CD comp from Down Under, yes. "I hear footsteps pounding on the floor. . . ."
