Hillbilly Posh

From the rough and ready Maryhillbillys to something altoghether  more polished and posh the Notting Hillbillies (even spelt posher!)

From the 1990 album  Missing.... Presumed Having a Good Time here are the Notting Hillbillies consisting of Mark Knopfler, Steve Philips, Guy Fletcher and Brendan Crocker.
The sleeve notes describe Hillbilly as
1. Usually disparaging. An unsophisticate person
2. Another name for Country and Western

It's a decent enough album  (nothing special) but not particularly Country and Western

The Notting Hillbillies - Blues Stay Away from Me


  1. What? No Portuguese accordion music about electric cars? Shame on you.

  2. We expect something appropriate given the latest joyous news

  3. A day late but better late than never
