What’s up y’all!? Happy Holidays and all that good stuff to you and yours!
Today I’m excited to share with y’all a record I literally picked up an hour ago at a local spot here in New Orleans – Kitchen Witch! It’s a wonderful store on Bayou Rd Market and run by a lovely lady named Debbie and the whole store is filled with cookbooks of all types – and records!
A few days I was in a local bar and heard Ms Teena Marie on their radio and got all types of excited about the music – and today I just so happened to find her record – It Must Be Magic!
If you haven’t heard her music, check it out! Her band is killing!

Now for something cool….
Last week we played with Ellis Dyson and the Shambles – awesome band from Carrboro, NC – and Ellis was telling me about this tune by Kamasi Washington. His version of Cherokee. Well he sent me the video a few days ago, and damn it might be on the same level of cool with Freddy Jackson sippin a milkshake in a snow storm (for all my Outkast fans)
Enjoy! – Thanks Ellis

For this edition of BBR I’m choosing a new addition to the collection…
Ms. Nancy Wilson’s – All In Love Is Fair!
Track #2 & #3: Try It, You’ll Like It/ There’ll Always Be Forever
I picked this album up in Fort Wayne, IN at The Wooden Nickel last week for under a buck, and have listened to it a few times since we’ve been back home. I hadn’t listened to much Nancy Wilson before, and as soon as I saw the cover I knew I had no reason not be buy it. Needles to say it’s definitely becoming a favorite. Hope y’all enjoy!
Tonight we’re playing in New Orleans and rocking the walls at The Maison on Frenchmen St. – Charles Bronson style – from 10 to Midnight! It’s a free show too so come on out and spend your Friday with us!
I’ve finally reached that point on the road where I’ve collected too many records and I have no more space for them in the van….oh well.
For this edition of BBR I’ve chosen a record from a little well known band called FUCKIN’ CREEDENCE ….actually it’s Creedence Clearwater Revival and the album is Cosmo’s Factory!
I picked up this album in a Salvation Army for maybe $2. I also bought a few VHS tapes for maybe $2 as well. It’s a good thing when you can find great things for hardly any money!
Tonight we’re rocking the walls in Flagstaff, AZ at The Green Room! Check it out!
