Samples of our records
|Cold Cold Ground
|This is the first track on our newest CD release, Please Punch Richard For Me, out now. It’s a little ditty about being in a company-less company town.|
|Logan Square Dance
|This is the third track on our newest CD release, Please Punch Richard For Me, out now. It’s a bunch of original and trad tunes mashed into a tasty paste.|
|From the third Tangleweed CD, Most Folk Heroes Started Out As Criminals. A little ditty about car trouble and Ohio’s non-navigable waterways.|
|Pick Poor Robin Clean
|Another track from the third Tangleweed CD, Most Folk Heroes Started Out As Criminals. This is an old raggy blues tune with lyrics that are either about eating rotten bird meat or something far more objectionable. Or possibly both.|
|Recorded in October, 2005, at King Size in Chicago, with Mike Hagler at the controls. From our CD, Where You Been So Long?.|
|Draggin’ the Bow
|Our take on a nice little rag, featuring Billy Oh’s fine fiddling. Recorded at King Size in Chicago, with Mike Hagler at the controls. From our CD, Where You Been So Long?.|
|The title track from the first CD, recorded live to two track in an empty Chicago two flat, November, 2004, with Bob Weston engineering. This is not a drug song. Oh wait, yes it is.
Listen to this a few times, and it will bore a hole into your skull and take permanent residence in the deepest recesses of your brain. You will buy ten copies of the CD.
|Make Me a Pallet on the Floor
|Recorded live to two track, November, 2004. This was the second take of this we recorded. I learned this from a Missippi John Hurt record. Nobody has ever sung of shooting and stabbing in as smooth and reassuring a voice as the late Mr. Hurt. From the CD Just a Spoonful.|
