The 2nd of March, 2013 -- Session 14, Green Hell and All Is Done





Soundtrack for the final chapter of the Battle Royale: The Art of Old-Time Mountain Music. Some of my favorite artists of all time are on here including Frazier & Patterson, Joe Thompson, Dink Roberts, Uncle Dave, Benton Flippen, Wilson Douglas and Snake Chapman. These were much needed sounds during the the brutal process of tattooing green over recently healed green. I had no idea the Green Hell Flame of Pain that I was about to experience. The last session was explosive to say the least. I had no idea. Now, it's done.  :)















The 22nd of February, 2013 -- Session 13, Odds and Ends



Another masterful compilation from Dust to Digital. It's the Fonotone Records box set!

The 12th of January, 2013 -- Session 9, The Greening of the Snake

The soundtrack of the session was provided by one of the greatest minds in six string music. Beautiful and dark finger mysteries by the legendary John Fahey. Country blues meets the stylings of Hindustani ragas meets Dr.Caligari...

The 5th of January, 2013 -- Session 8, The Browning of the Dragon


                                    There's nothing like the raw sonic pleasure of blues music by fiddler Butch Cage and guitarist Willie B. Thomas. The CD title says it all. There are not many musical glimpses like this available. Thank the powers that be for Arhoolie Records.








This was definitely a more brutal day than most. I left Spotlight with a very sore back.
