Monkey Mind – 03/12/2012

That Billy Joe Shaver gospel country CD from 2007 and the Steve Jordan accordion stuff are the outstanding gems this week, in my world. Hope you liked that strange Terry Allen suite from 1985 as well; originally composed to accompany a dance performance, it holds up well as an odd story/song/collage piece, I think.
