"Spill The Wine": THE WEEKEND MIX
I was never a big fan of "Spill The Wine" by Eric Burdon and War, but yet I love The Isley Brothers version and wanted to feature it as a Song Of The Day. But then one thing led to another and we are here.
This is one of those old fashioned mixes that seemed to unfold in real time. I had "Spill The Wine" as the last track but loved how the Corey Harris & Henry Butler track sounded closing things out. The rest...Mary Flower's cool medley opener, the greatest tuba/washboard/guitar Motown cover you'll ever hear, a rough mix of LZ's "Gallows Pole" that I think kicks the final mix's ass, Zevon's "Carmelita," which has always been a favorite but one night, after singing it in a New Orleans dive bar with 6 friends and 30 strangers is now in my personal hall of fame...well, as I love to say, sounds good altogether.
I hope you think so.
