Some People Don’t Know Music, Even When It’s In The Air

Posted in Honey on 09.23.05

I’ve been so busy recently that my posts have been falling by the wayside, but I’m working on a few things to make sure that it doesn’t happen as much as it did this week anymore. Charles Buckley has a new blog up and it has a lot of promise. Basically he’s making mix tapes or posting old mix tapes from many years ago. The first one is a collection of Lead Belly songs and it’s a fine selections. Check Him out at Workbook.

Jimmy Murphy had a minor hit in the mid-50s, but his blend of of blues, country and rock-a-billy was already out of fashion by the time he hit the scene. But here at Honey, music never goes out of style. Electricity, is still the song that he’s most known for. I also really like Big Mama Blues, a blues throwback track that has some pretty funny lyrics and a great guitar track.

Whoa! “Electricity” rocks, baby! How did I avoid hearing this amazing track for so long? Heck, I don’t even remember hearing of Jimmy Murphy before.
