Hi, everyone. I thought I’d take you all back to the world of Bayou Fire this week. Lee Benoit‘s music was in heavy rotation while I wrote the book, and his band was the one I had in mind during the scene in which Amos and Diana are dancing at Mulate’s. Enjoy!
Hi, everyone. Today’s song takes me back to Edinburgh, Scotland, during our honeymoon. We were in Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, on the Royal Mile, and what I thought was some obscure Elvis recording was playing in the background. It was during this song that I went “Wait a minute …” and pushed through to ask the bartender who was playing.
The answer was James “The King” Brown … and we were directed to a music shop on Cockburn Street to find his CDs.
Enjoy this Elvis-esque cover by a Dublin postal worker. I think it’s splendid.
Hi, everyone. This came up in my Youtube recommendations today. Please enjoy Tre Twitty and Tayla Lynn performing their grandparents’ (Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn) hit.
Hi, everyone. Having been reminded by fellow blogger John Holton that today is Rick Springfield’s birthday (the Australian rocker is now 72 years old), I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite Springfield tracks. Enjoy!
Hi, everyone. This song popped into my head this morning, so I thought I would share it with you. This is Buck Owens’ “Tall Dark Stranger.”
