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.

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.

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.
