It's getting bluesier by the hour. Winter in America is is not to be underestimated. A fair amount of contemporary tracks and re-issues. Google them to find a retailer. Also a certain domination of Fender sound. Bobby Bobo is this issues midwestern favorite newcomer. Fingers crossed, stay warm and play loud. For now, Bo-Tex.

Heads Up
4Tracks: #101-108 - Download here
This time around 4Tracks has focused on clean american fun. A range of Country, RnB to Blues and Rockabilly makes this the most Am-strict issue so far. In the crates are a few classics from Kristoffersen and Haggard, listen close to the intro of To Beat The Devil. A shout out to our late Mr Cash. Another dark trucker song is the Wreck On The Highway. Keep the prayers coming. If you ever want to turn a soul fool onto Coutry, well Linda Martell is your girl. A personal favorite is the swamp classic from Charles Sheffield. As for the more rock oriented listeners, make note of Big Mama Hornton and the resemblance to The Rose - or is it the other way around? Final note, watch out for that Quicksand. It's very catchy. With My Soul Is My Witness (what a bonus) I leave you, for now, Bo-Tex.

4Tracks are in all silence rounding of the year, leaving the land of two digits behind. The bag is loaded with stuff from the new world, some dog rusty 78's that still manage to sing, a few contemporary numbers and some leftovers from a previous sessions. I have also dug out some M. V. Peebles that I thought would fit nicely in. A black Tom Waits Harlem style. Play them all here or download them to your player of choice. Whatever you do, live up, happy new year and for the love of sound, keep it down. Bon-tex.
