Mix 'N' Match

My records are all in storage at the moment, which severely limits my ability to pitch in, but there's no way I'm going to sit out "Homer & Jethro Month" in its entirety. So here's a relatively early (1954) photo with a relatively late (1970) track that doesn't relate to it. And just so you know, digging out that magazine got me a fat lip when the box it was in slid off the stack and pasted me one in the chops! The things I do for you people...

I Don't Flirt Anymore


In 1954, Hank Snow sent I Don't Hurt Anymore to the top of the country music charts.

Several years later, Homer & Jethro lampooned it with I Don't Flirt Any More on their Wanted For Murder lp (1966).

Get Down, and Do The Do


"We gonna get down. We gonna do the do. I'm going to hit these motherfuckers."
-Dock Ellis, in a clubhouse speech to his teammates before a 1974 game against the Cincinnati Reds in which he plunked the first three batters he faced (Pete Rose, Joe Morgan and Dan Driessen, for those of you keeping score at home).

Homer and Jethro's neighbors (some guys from Lubbock and Memphis and two Hookers)




If you are looking at this website, then in all likelihood you are an obsessive-compulsive weirdo who alphabetizes his, her or its records. So you probably know that without these guys to their immediate left and right, there would be nothing to keep your Homer and Jethro records from falling down.

Homer and Jethro



Homer and Jethro month continues with the fellas' ode to that most essential of regional American cuisines: Ground Hogmeat. I mean Groundhog Meat.

From the liner notes of the Barefoot Ballads LP:
"Today we feel that we have a great future behind us, and we have never let failure go to our heads... these are songs that our recording boss Steve Sholes wanted us to sing very badly, and that's the way we did them."
