ODDS & ENDS


Odds & Ends volume 13. We’re going back about 10,000 years—“it beats anything the modern man hears.” This set truly embodies the “mythological blues,” rampant with ramblers and cowboys ridin’ fence, polka dots and moonbeams at midnight, and dusty old dust. Legends and heroes. Time to rise and shine. New day dawning . . . or darkness closing in?

  1. A rare instance of me already owning a song that you're featuring - always a treat to hear it though. Marvellous stuff.

    1. Hi, Swede . . . Turn Me Loose is a marvelously weird collection of not-your-everyday hillbilly records. A favorite of mine also. So we've got that and Floyd Tillman in common anyway!
