Some Sunday Fulks Music
It has been too long since the great Robbie Fulks has graced these pages.
Here are a couple of songs from his debut album Country Love Songs. From way back in 1996 it was the 11th record on the Bloodshot catalogue.
My copy seems to have initially belonged to Birmingham libraries.
Robbie is still going strong and has churned out a further dozen albums mostly on Bloodshot with Geffen and Yep Roc also on the list.
He received a Grammy nomination for his latest album 2016's Upland Stories.

A great musician who's (thankfully) hard to categorise. Been a fan since I heard "She Took a Lot of Pills (And Died)" about 20 years ago.ReplyDelete
That's the song that certainly caught my attention, and I'm sure CCs. Was it Andy Kershaw who played it on the radio?Delete
Kershaw for me. I used to spend a fortune on albums which AK played tracks from. Even real oldies such as "Denomination Blues" by Washington Phillips had me hunting down obscure labels.Delete
I'm glad George and Gram mentioned Andy Kershaw. I tracked down one of his programs on youtube and am enjoying his eclectic taste.Delete
Happy memories. Was lucky enough a couple of years ago to see him play in the tiny 12 Bar Club with Jon Langford, who I know you are a fan of. More happy memories.ReplyDelete
The album on Geffen was a tiny hiccup in an otherwise stellar career. Fulks owned Chicago during the years I lived there.ReplyDelete
