    They're probably obscure enough for people in the U.S. I know about them only by pure accident.

    This band played in coffee shops in Missoula Montana between 1996 and 1999. They made a few releases during that time, 2 to be exact. One was available as a 500 copy pressing and the other as a 200 copy pressing, and then they faded into obscurity until the lead singer started a new band in Portland Oregon. Someone at “Kill Rock Stars” had some foresight because while the new band was still relatively obscure, they released a retrospective of the complete works of Tarkio. It is now available to all, and as the lead singer is now quite famous, is far less obscure than it once was.

    I had never heard this song until I listened to Boyd Rivers play it on an Alan Lomax film.

    Sometime in 1973, while I was attending college, my brother Bernie came over with a couple of vinyl albums, both by a Bahama artist called Exuma. Bernie loved Exuma and played the albums constantly for a year.

    Now, I have no idea if this is a "deep cut" or not, really. I know almost nothing about this song or the artist, whether it charted, whether the artist was popular, all a mystery to me. I did find it on YouTube, so that's something. I suspect that this will be new to most Seasonistas, but I would not be surprised if our host knows this. He knows a lot of music!

    It took seven of me to do this song. It's a one-chord song, and I added a ton of cheap percussion and a synth clav.

    This is a deep cut in that it is an older version of a song that many are familiar with. Another Cajun song! All in French!

    This song didn't get the exposure I felt it should have. It didn't keep the heart of the girl it reminds me of either. LOL

    My wife had me get the Christmas stuff down tonight. Either she's going to go real slow at getting it all up or it's going up before Thanksgiving. I hope that latter so we just skip the Thanksgiving decorations. Less to deal with.

    Since the early '80s, I have spent a LOT of my free time looking for the next song that will blow me away. Maybe more time than I spend playing the ukulele. I'm constantly finding songs that I think, by right, should become huge hits. But I think the only time in the past 15 to 20 years that one of them has was "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men. This is a song by the duo Frank + Derol that I thought would be a huge pop hit. Especially since one of the duo was Miley Cyrus' sister Brandi. But as far as I know, all they ever recorded was the 2012 EP that this song was on.

    This makes the 231st Season that I've taken part in (77%).
