    Another Skid Row Joe (Country MP3)

    Carl Dean - Another Skid Row Joe (2:22)

    The unknown (to me) Carl Dean executes a pretty fair Jerry Lee Lewis rip in this ode to everyone's favorite alcoholic. And check out that beautiful ARCH label, headquartered in St. Louis just as you'd expect. For more tales of winos in a tailspin, check out the extensive collection of Skid Row songs posted recently on WFMU's Beware Of The Blog.

    Next week: Edgar Buchanan (Uncle Joe from Petticoat Junction) dips his toe into the Red Sovine songbook.

    Code Alarm 7 (Country MP3)

    Vern Stovall - Code Alarm 7 (2:47)

    Tip: any record that starts with the words "The ambulance screamed out Highway 11" is very unlikely to have a happy ending. I hope y'all have your crying towels handy.

    Next week: the further adventures of Skid Row Joe.

    Way Out

    Motorcycle Ride
    School For Robots
    Nothing To Do
    This has shown up on the blogosphere a time or two, but it's new to me! When I recently came across this VERY strange children's educational record from 1968, I was intrigued by the homemade cover art. What lay in the grooves however, was even more surprising. Using some early electronic techniques, tape manipulation, sound effects, a lot of imagination and a strong counter culture aesthetic, Bruce Haack created something I would be proud to have my children listen to. Enjoy...

    To hear Buck Owens' original version of Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass (and a whole lot more country fuzz), head over to this Beware Of The Blog post.
