Track Listing & Review
Well, It's Oct 29th again, and it has been 39 years since Duane Allman died in a horrific bike accident in Macon Georgia back in 1971. Duane at the young age of 24 left a legacy in southern rock that will guarantee his immortalization in our hearts and ear drums. Rolling stone magazine ranked him #2 in their "100 greatest guitar players off al time" list. Although that doesn't mean much considering they all ranked Kurt Cobain #12 and Jerry Garcia #13.......but thats another rant we shall save for another day! Nonetheless Skydog was a monster in the world of slide guitar, with arguably the greatest tone to ever scream out of a marshall. So wherever you find yourself today, stop for a moment, crack a bottle of pabst blue ribbon and pay your respects to the late great and always righteous Howard Duane Allman.
In commemoration of Duane life and death I'm posting the Allman Brothers Band Live at American University /12/13/1970. Its Raw, it's gritty and it's perfect! Highlight - The 16 minute version of "you don't love me" is definitely the gem on here!

Track Listing & Review
Alright! Next up were gonna go with a little canadiana country! Forget Miley Cyrus
and Keith Urban, this road warrior has been releasing music about farming, dogs, tractors,
and booze for 30 years, while playing to small rooms all over Canada he still manages to
pump out some serious tunes! Although this is not my favourite its a must hear for all fans of the genre! If enough people dig it, I will post other albums. So grab a bottle of Lucky Lager and your shotgun, and set yourself up in a rocking chair on your porch..... you're going country!
Highlighted tracks are Makin Whiskey and Little Buffalo!
Well this group needs no introduction! If you haven't been living under a rock for the last 50 years you should be well aware of this powerhouse duo! With brilliant help from the genius of Sir Isaac Hayes, (Black Moses!) these gents belted out some of the greatest soul this little floating marble has ever heard! Although they despised each other to a point that they wouldn't travel together, talk to each other or even look at one another while performing for like 13 years! Anyways up for your listening entertainment is the anthology discs containing 50 cuts!! And did i mention these files are LOSLESS!!
Enjoy this as your dancing around your house in bellbottoms and oversized collar silk shirts!!
Alright heres another absolute classic delta born blues artist.... Mr Sunnyland Slim! This collection I downloaded from itunes, has 24 hollering tracks recorded in the 40s and 50's and are bound to have you slugging wine out of the bottle and dancing to the wee hours!
Highlighted tracks are Illinois Central and Keep Your Hands Out Of My Money!!!
