Well... We've reached mid-week. The weather in Nashville is spectacular, and I have a ton of songs to get to so, I will make it brief.'

Wild Wednesday follows:
"You Don't Even Know Me" by Al Stewart
Lead off track from Al Stewarts 4th album released in 1972 - featured a pre-Attractions Bruce Thomas on bass.
"The Graveyard Ballet" by Gabrielle Louise
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned how much I love If the Static Clears. The crowdfunding was successful. Look for the album soon and get it! I was lucky enough to run into Gabrielle during Americana Fest, and it was good to meet her in person.
"Swans" by Weird.
From the 2012 album A Long Period of Blindness. Weird. is a band from Rome. Noisy, alternative, shoegazey stuff. Cool...
"Hurricane" by Elouise
And another from Deep Water by California blackgrass band Elouise.
"Jump" by Van Halen
From the album 1984. Okay, okay.. when Sue and I originally discussed our Covers show - we talked about playing the original and then the cover before scrapping the idea. I added "Jump" so that I could play Aztec Camera's cover.
"Every Port in The Storm" by Joey Kneiser
The Wildness is the outstanding latest album by Glossary's Joey Kneiser.
"The Blue Highways" by Darrin Bradbury
One of my all-time favorite Darrin Bradbury songs. From his latest album, Elmwood Park: A Slightly Melodic Audio Book."Get Up" by Dirty Basement Blues
Awesome blues rock from Michigan.

An Eddie Cochran song - by a rock and roll legend and a country music icon. From Rhythm Country and Blues - a 1994 album which paired country music artists with rhythm and blues artists.

Another one from Botany by the now defunct Circus Propaganda. An early release on Dord Records Group.

From the 1987 album Bo-Day-Shus!!! In honor of meeting Mojo Nixon last week, but this song was written and sung by Skid Roper.
