A Friday Night to Work Mix – Some Country, Blues, Folk and Bluegrass!!!

So as I was gearing up to go to work at Target tonight, I looked at the music on my iPhone and I saw the playlist I created last week from the songs that I listened to on the way to and from work. It was a rather interesting mix that included a little from several genres, Here’s the playlist……

Live at Billy Bob's1 “Take Me Out to the Dancehall” – Pat Green – Live at Billy Bob’s – like fellow Texas country musician Jack Ingram, I really like Pat’s early music, and this song is one of my favorites.

2. “Chromatic Blues” – Poppa Dwag – What You Got – a good album that like many is not listened to enough!

3. “Dry Creek Inn” – Milkdrive – Road from Home you always need a little bluegrass to get you pumped up!!

4. “The Year that Clayton Delaney Died” – Waylon Jennings – WWII – Waylon and Willie perfect together! (or apart doesn’t matter!)

5. “The Thresher” – Phil Ochs – All the News that’s Fit to Sing – from Wikipedia

The second USS Thresher (SSN-593) was the lead boat of her class of nuclear-powered attack submarines in the United States Navy. Her loss at sea in the North Atlantic during deep-diving tests approximately 220 miles east of Boston, Massachusetts, on 10 April 1963 was a watershed event for the U.S. Navy, leading to the implementation of a rigorous submarine safety program known as SUBSAFE. Judging by the 129 crew members and shipyard personnel who were killed in the incident, historic context and significance, the sinking of Thresher was then, and remains today, the world’s worst submarine disaster. As the first nuclear submarine lost at sea, its disappearance generated international shock and sympathy. Read More

6. ” A Hard Rain’s A -gonna Fall” – Eric Andersen – The Street was Always There – a nice cover of the Dylan song by Eric.
