I Went...SI--SI--SIRIUS...All The Way Home (again) #38

(a short jaunt)

"Whiskey Man" - Molly Hatchet  / "Flirtin' With Disaster" (1979)

I enjoy some southern rock occasionally and Molly Hatchet with Danny Joe Brown vocals is some of the classic best.  Music for a pedal-to-the-medal...Copperhead Road...highway moonshine run.   Or maybe just get some work done in the backyard and just pretend you're on Copperhead Road somewhere.  Either way...turn the key and crank it.  This was the opening track from Molly Hatchet's sophomore album. (OWN)

"Under The Red Sky" - Bob Dylan / "Under The Red Sky" (1990)

Is this title track a metaphor for young love that fades?  A young romance grown cold?  Or is it...just what it is?  At this point in Bob Dylan's long career, we really just don't know.  Still, I rather enjoy this gentle little ditty quite a bit and have decided to make up my own various meanings in my head.   I haven't listened to the rest of this square, but "Under The Red Sky" was Bob Dylan's 27th studio album.  And speaking of red sky...we have a Red Moon coming our way tomorrow night. (NEED)
**The 27th of May - Red Moon. 
The 27th studio album - "... Red Sky"  "Oh, man.  This is becoming murder most foul!"
**(26th, actually)

"Pack Fair And Square" - The J. Geils Band / "The J. Geils Band" (1970)

The J. Geils Band is a pretty good fix when you need a good dose of rhythm and blues.  Originally written and performed by Big Walter Price back in the 50s, these freeze-frame cats take this classic 50s number and sell it like cold water in a dry desert.  They play this kind of stuff with love, honor, and joy.   On their debut album, the guys look so greasy, you have to wash your hands every time you spin the square.  Oh, and that's "Magic Dick and his Lickin' Stick" making some noise. (NEED)


Good stuff.
