SMC Song of the Week - Deep As Your Pocket

Inspired by Eilen Jewell's latest tribute CD, "Butcher Holler,"
I went looking for the original version of this song!

* SMC Album(s) of the Week - Foley/Prine *

From the "when it rains it pours department" ... I give you not ONE, but TWO terrific new records that will have your repeat button working overtime!

The late BLAZE FOLEY's new CD -- "Sittin' By the Road" (Lost Art) --was actually recorded in the mid-70's, during his tree-house days. The songs are gorgeous, just Blaze and his guitar. Sounding like a more gentle Jim Ringer, I'm already playing this 3 times a day! "The Way You Smile" will bring tears to your eyes.

We've all known John Prine for being a great story-teller, well now you can hear all of them - 72 minutes to be exact - over and over, as he introduces his classics with plenty of stage banter and bouquets for his loved ones on "In Person & On Stage" (Oh Boy)
A must for all Prine fans!
