First time I heard album that was at a party after an event at the Edinburgh festival. It was during the mid 1980s and I was in the company of an actress/dancer (or dancer/actress? Hahaha) who had adopted the current Madonna/'Papa Don't Preach' look - bleached blonde, telnyashka and all - when the host offered to let us hear Rain Dogs. For some reason up to that point I thought Tom Waits was a big band type singer.  :laugh:

And I thought he sang I aint missin you at all!  0:)

You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

First time I've heard her - but I immediately want to hear more.

Haven't heard this in a long, long time. I think it's only my second spin.

George Jones, arguably the greatest Country singer - ever; but I don't know that album of gospel hymns.  Has to be good though, and I may have heard some of the tracks on other compilations. 

"The Killer" during his Country phase when his Rock 'n' roll career hit the skids after his marriage to his 13 year old cousin.  Of his other cousins, Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley, only the latter seems to have escaped scandal.  Louisiana boys.

Good stuff you're listening to here lately.

Heh, thanks. I love George Jones and would have heard it eventually, but was led to that album because I was looking into various versions of the song "I'll Fly Away", and that album has a really nice one. First time Ive heard Jerry Lee Lewis in Country mode, and was very impressed.

I had both of these on LP back when they were first released. I remember my copy of Evilive was so warped that only my super cheap turntable with practically weightless arm would play it, arms of better turntables that some of my friends had would just slid and skip.  ;D  We used to regularly pass our records around within our circle of friends as they weren't that easy to get back in socialist Yugoslavia.

Envious of your purchase of that Connie Smith one!  Ever since I heard an interview with her and Marty, I've been curious as to what her singing/performances were like!  Let us know how you find it.

Best,

PD
