Grateful Dead - KY Jam

I'm closing a chapter and turning over a new leaf, and in these moments one turns to Jerome.

Recorded "live" on Friday, July 6th, 1990, at Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, Kentucky. Thanks to Brent for ultimately arriving at pure vacuum cleaner sounds at the 7:15 mark.

Skeeter Davis - Give Me Death

I heard this on the radio this summer in arguably the best possible conditions: driving around the foothills of Santa Fe at night.

Words & music by Skeeter Davis and Marie Wilson. Produced by Chet Atkins. This is from a 45 on the RCA Victor label, in "New Orthophonic" high fidelity. To simulate the sound of AM radio, listen through your computer speakers.

Gotta love Skeeter's pronunciation of the word "sentence."

Stay tuned for an action-packed autumn on A.D.!
