Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves (MP3)

Burl Ives (and Grady Martin And His Slew Foot Five) - Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves

Assuming that you've never heard this record, it's safe to say I was as shocked as you probably are now to learn that Burl Ives made a great record. It definitely didn't hurt that he had the legendarily talented Grady Martin manning the guitar for the session.

This song was once described to me as the, "Louie Louie" of truckin' songs.

This is great - thank you!

Must be a misprint on the label - this CAN'T BE Burl Ives!

I know....I'm still trying to come to grips with it myself.
