"Black Friday" : THE WEEKEND MIX

"Radio Shack opened at 5AM this morning,'cuz ya know, kids are always asking Santa for RF switches and cr2024 batteries."

Giving thanks is officially out of style. It's time to throw an elbow in some woman's face and grab that duvee set for 30% off. Ah yes, Happy Holidays.

I found this mix earlier this week. It was labelled "July," but I am pretty sure I never used it. After some minor tweaking, it sounded ready to go. With the exception of a live version of "Black Friday" from Marian McPartland's radio show, I see no real theme here, except it all sounds great together.

Would love to hear what you think after you listen.

Driving early this morning the radio played an old Boz Scaggs now this mix and here is old Boz again!

Coincidence? -- I think not!

Great mix. Thanks Sal.

Sal, It's not a new release but you should re - visit Chip Taylor's " Seven Days In May " from 1998 with Lucinda Williams & Guy Clark...
It's an important work....

As Ralph Kramden would say...
You are readin' Levon Helm's book about him & the Band....I am making progress with you..
Let me know if you have any questions about this great & underestimated band...
Not a pretty story at the end...
It up to me & you Sal, to get Robbie Robertson & Levon together over beer & wine & have them end their blood feud. I think we should get them to Balloto's on E. Houston between Mott & Mulberry.

Balloto's is overrated, why not try a dive bar in Hells Kitchen for these two old hacks.
