|Robbie Fulks or a Portuguese Peanut Farmer?|
I suspect that the statistics are unlikely to change any as I subject you to the tenth and final installment of the Bluegrass Monday series.
I'm beginning to struggle now (Yes, I know there are some out there who think I have been struggling for weeks)
We are off to Chicago to visit the great Robbie Fulks with two of the 13 Hillbilly Giants from his 2000 album of the same name and a welcome return to Bloodshot and Americana after a disappointing and ill advised dalliance with pop and rock (Let's Kill Saturday Night anyone?)
Covers of 13 lesser known country songs . The two I have chosen have a wee bit of a bluegrass feel to them. The instrumental Southern Comfort was originally recorded by Jimmy Arnold with Jimmy Murphy doing the honours with We Live a Long Time To Get Old
There is a terrific cover of a Porter and Dolly song Jeannie's Afraid of the Dark which I will save for my sick and maimed young children series which will of course also feature The Handsome Family
