WARNING Adult Langauge

Yup, its another regional local blues showcase.  Tonight we feature the Backstage Boogie Band Plus my ode to Jimmy Pryor, Big Daddy Dennis Kain, Jimmy Pryor, Curry Harter, Lighting Red, Rob Lumbard, Madam Jules, and Johnny Reeferseed.

SO, beware, Johnny Reeferseed and Afroman, yup, that Afroman from the end of the movie Clerks perform Jamie Grim's (Johnny Reeferseed) hit Light em Up.  They use a lot of foul language so senstive ears avoid the show:-)  I love the song, but I understand if you have children who listen to the show avoid this show.  THANKS!

Cassette release recorded in 1992, and released in 1994.  It was recorded in Otho Iowa at Juniors Motel.  It took about an hour to record pretty much one take.  Kurk Kaufmann produced and engineered the session.  It is just me and the piano.  I never really intended to release it as a product, but a couple years later I put it out as my second cassette.  Many of the songs ended up on either Iowa Corn Fed Blues, or Yesterday and Today.
