'Rebel' Rod's Revelations, Recollections, & Revisitations - Progressive Country from the early to mid 70's
By 'Rebel Rod Ames
Tuesday 12/14/2010 615 am. The house is quiet save for the periodic growling of my stomach (must be time for breakfast).
I'm going through my library to get an idea for my next radio broadcast, when I run across some David Bromberg. Three songs jumped out at me; "The New Lee Highway Blues" from his "Wanted-Dead of Alive" album, "Yankee's Revenge/Medley" and "Dark Hollow", both from his classic "Midnight on the Water" record.
This literally opened up the flood gates! Before I knew what had hit me, I had no less than 20 tunes. Some early Eagles from their second album, "On the Border" "'Ol 55", "Man in the Fog" by the Flying Burrito Brothers, "Truckin'" and "Uncle John's Band" by The Grateful Dead.
It just kept going like this - Jesse Winchester, The Marshall Tucker Band, Pure Prairie League, Old & In the Way, Poco, and finally, Richard Betts had all made the cut. Suddenly I had my show.
I don't know if anyone else is going to enjoy it, but I know one thing for sure, I am!
Peace, and keep listening to the music and enjoy The Marshall Tucker Band and "24 Hours at a Time".
