Jeremiah Johnson Band with the Sliders “I Can Barely Breathe”
from 9th & Russell (The Jeremiah Johnson Band With The Sliders 2010) L —This is Hound Dog Brown, honored to fill in for Pat Wolfe today on Interstate. Thanks, Pat, for tapping me to do it! I'm playing a whole bunch of Pat's usual musical suspects today.
Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives “Never let the devil get the upper hand of you”
from The Unbroken Circle - The Musical Heritage Of The Carter Family (Dualtone Muusic Group) —This murder ballad is from the Carter Family songbook. It's so bonechilling because 1) A.P. Carter wrote the lyrics in the first person, and 2) Marty's vocal delievery, and his use of an electric sitar (!!) on this cut.
John Prine “Bear Creek Blues”
from The Unbroken Circle - The Musical Heritage of the Carter Family (Dualtone Music Group) —This makes four Carter Family songs in a row! Musicians of all stripes will be going back to the Carter songbook forever!
John Hartford “Turn Your Radio On”
from Aereo-Plain (Rounder 1971) —Kicking off this hour with that ol' rascal, John Hartford. KDHX is having a big John Hartford tribute event at Off Broadway on Dec 29, which consists of two shows, with a whole gob of bands lined up to pay honors to Mr. Hartford.
Bob Dylan “Don't Think Twice, It's All Right”
from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II (Columbia 1971) —Earlier this year, while listening to Jeff Corbin's Sat afternoon show "The Back Country", where he played "Understand your man" by Johhny Cash, it finally dawned on me that Mr. Cash used the chord structure from this tune by Bob Dylan as the basis.
Johnny Cash “Understand Your Man”
from Johnny Cash - 16 Biggest Hits (Columbi/Legacy 1979) —I searched Google and found a whole stack of web pages that confirm that, yep, Mr. Cash indeed used Dylan's "Don't think twice, it's all right" as the basis for "Understand your man". Mr. Cash reworked the sound with Mariachi trumpets, and voila!
Lacey J. Dalton and Bobby Bare “Beer drinkin' Christian”
from Music From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Take This Job And Shove It (Epic) —This brilliant little number has never been released on CD, as far as I know, and can only be found on a couple of obscure LPs. It's heard during the end credits of the movie in which it appeared.
