Welcome to episode 81 of Love that Album podcast.

 

This month, I decided to take a break from the podcast (slackarse that I am), but there is no way I would deprive both the listeners of an episode-  nosiree Bob. I called in Eric Reanimator (host of LTA: The Compilation Series) and Tim Merrill (my co host at See Hear podcast) to present some music discussion for you….and they’ve delivered the goods.

 

First up, they discuss The Flesh Eaters’ “A Minute To Pray A Second To Die” from 1981. This features a lineup of LA roots rock royalty with members of the Blasters, X and (yet to join) Los Lobos. The final result is still something leaner and rawer than any of those outfits.

 

Then the guys go for a real curiousity. The Minneapolis band Cows and their album “Cunning Stunts” comes under the guys’ gaze. A noise-rock band with a bugle and an interpretation of the theme from Midnight Cowboy sure as hell has my attention.

 

I want to thank Eric and Tim for presenting a fantastic episode which introduced me to some good music and interesting discussion. I hope you dig it.

It’s time to get some solid recommendations from Eric Reanimator for great compilations on Episode 19 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition.

 

Both albums focus on Canadian troubadour Stomping Tom Connors, probably most famous for The Hockey Song. The first album is called Bring Your Own Plywood and features Calgary rock and country artists recording cover versions of songs written by Connors. Artists such as Agriculture Club, Knucklehead, and The Spam Avenger line up to record their favourite tunes from his monstrously large songbook.

 

Then Eric talks about Unreleased Songs from the Vault Collection, Vol. 1 where Connors himself records some of his favourite classic country and folk songs he originally sang when he started out in the fifties. Using just his guitar and voice, he turns his focus to well known and loved songs such as the Darktown Strutter’s Ball, Truck Drivin’ Man, and Swanee River. Originally planned to be a 10 volume set, Connors unfortunately passed away after only the first volume was released.

Thanks again to Eric for another fine program.
