    Simmer down my elfen friend ������
    Here have a song penned by one Jon Duncan wayyy back in 1998, when he was a guitar player. He sent me his CD’s which are fantastic shorty after we started swapping songs (long before the seasons), and I immediately found this gem. I play it all the time because I think it is a great song and I often play in Santa Rosa, where we have no elves but do have Peanuts. In fact, it is a cult here. Horizontal stripes are all the rage, everyone wants to be the kicker on the football team, the birds are all yellow and mostly
    indiscernible, and the doctor is always in.
    And then there is me, my constant cloud of dust, and my ukulele.
    Anyway, a Punch your Neighbor favorite, presented for your viewing pleasure.


    This just in! Jon-o shared the original. It can be found here, and is way better. WAY BETTER.

    See this is the thing about the seasons. Had never heard of Mandolin Orange before last week or My Bubba before this week. And now I've just found this beautiful video of them performing together...

    That is lovely. I've enjoyed Mandolin Orange for a while but I've never heard of My Bubba. I'm gonna go down that rabbit hole. Thanks for sharing Brian.

    If you like Mandolin Orange then you will love Abigail Washburn.

    Alright folks, I am off to bed a bit early tonight because my kids have lice and I have to bring them in for treatment early tomorrow before they go to school. Never a dull moment around here! And there has been another slew of outstanding vids from you folks. Going down all these rabbit holes is going to keep me busy for quite a while.
    And you'll have to forgive my less than gentlemanly rant about Christmas. All in good fun. Although it does make my head explode when the Christmas things start to come out in November. Ok, I'm done.
    Thank you for all that has come this week, and here's the latest:

    YorkSteve - Restless Legs - I can relate to this song, lol. Never thought to write a song about. This is a catchy one too. I certainly have never heard it before. I love when I find a really good, obscure band and every now and then you turn somebody onto them and they get just as you do. Good stuff here.

    RAB11 - Two Against One - Poor Nathan. Hope he feels better soon. I like Jack White a lot. Don't think I've ever heard this one before. Looking forward to hearing the original as I like this version here. Nice solo bit there. I've been working my way up to that for about seven years. I'll get there someday, lol. Great stuff.

    pabrizzer - There Is A Time - From The Andy Griffith Show! That's getting obscure. Yeah, I used to watch that show a bit, don't remember ever hearing this tune though. I really like it. Nice harp bit there. Really good bring for the week.

    YorkSteve - The Right Track - I absolutely love this song! And yeah, I probably never would have heard it if it weren't for TCK. Pretty sure I played this on one of the radio shows I did. If not, TCK certainly has. I believe Hopeton Lewis also performed on that track. Nice, mellow take on this. I really enjoyed it. Such a great tune. Thanks!

    xommen - Kiss The World Beautiful - Lovely tune. Never heard it before. Bit tragic yet optimistic at the same time. Very nice. I like the progression a lot. Looking forward to hearing the original.

    xommen - Have An Angel Walk With Her - Cool tune. I like the echo you used for this. The more I listen the more I really like this song. Great addition to the week.

    Tootler - Long, Long Ago - I love the history lesson in the notes. I love Don't Wait Under The Apple Tree and had no idea of it's roots. I have never heard of*Thomas Haynes Bayly. I knew you would have no trouble coming up with something off most folks' radar. This is a gem.

    turtledrum - I’m Only Sleeping - I'm pretty sure that by the time I bought a copy of Revolver this was on it. I only really got into The Beatles around 1988 after I started working as a DJ at an ice rink. A friend of mine there opened my eyes to The Beatles. This has since become one of my favorite songs of theirs. But, yeah, a deep cut for sure, and very welcome for this week. I love your take on this. Much more dreamy than the original. Very nice.

    BigDaddyUker - Absolutely Right - Well you got me. I've never heard this tune in my life. And really it's not about stumping me but more about you folks playing your favorite hidden gems. Whether or not I know the tune is irrelevant. This is quite a catchy tune. I'm looking forward to hearing the original.

    AlanDP - Singing Waterfall - Hank Williams? I've never heard that song before! No really, I haven't. No doubt TCK knows this tune. He does a Hank show every year. Certainly sounds like Hank. I really like it a lot.

    Recovering Bassist - Then I’ll Stop Going For You - Gotta get me a banjo uke. I really like this. New to me. Real folky stuff. Very nice!

    Recovering Bassist - The Weakness Of Two Hearts - Only your second take? Damn. Another one new to me. I have to learn how to do that walk up/walk down thing someday. Good stuff.

    TCK - Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk This Christmas - Hahaha. Yes, this is driving me crazy. Great tune, but it's not December yet. I give Eileen a hard time about that stuff too. She wants to hang up the tinsel in November. lol. I'm sure I must have heard this song from you at some point. But maybe not. GREAT tune. Sad though. So glad I'm not that dad, though you should have seen me last Christmas with the in laws here!

    Demimondaine - She’s Dandy - Haha, I love this. Being arrested for wearing pants. Unbelievable this is a part of history. People are nuts. Really creative tune. Thanks for this.

    TCK - Comic Book Writer - Yay! And it's not a Christmas song. I don't think I've ever heard this, though it's connected to two of my faves. Great addition you two. And thanks to Jon for writing it. And I'm so glad the ice rink there in Santa Rosa survived. My step mom had her first job there as a kid.

    Anyhoodies (yep it's a great word) - it's a song I just had to give a went.
    Has anyone heard The International Submarine Band version?




    I saw Abigail Washburn live at Blue Mountains Folk Festival. She is BRILL.

    Back in the 1970s I was a voracious reader of Rolling Stone, and especially their album reviews. Anything that sounded like it might be to my taste I made a note of, and tried to follow up at some stage. About this time we gained an import record shop in Geelong, and they, as the name suggests, imported their LPs directly from the States, and so we didn't have to wait for local pressings, or even wonder if they would be supplied locally.
    Even the staff were a bit baffled by some of the names, I recall Steely Dan being filed under D rather than S.
    So a couple of albums I purchased from this shop were proabably quite rare in Australia. One was by a group called Blue Jug. I think the reviewer was of the opinion they could be the next "The Band". They didn't quite measure up but I really enjoyed the album, and have recently become reacquainted with them thru Youtube.
    Another album was by Elliot Murphy, called Night Lights. It does get a mention in Wikipedia, but in a Discography of Elliott Murphy it is completely ignored. Anyhooodies (I like that expression too), I thought it had a few really good tracks on it, and here is my version of Isadora's Dancers from that album

    Not what I was expecting. Yes the slide guitar is BRILL - love the piano too.
    The Mammals version is sublime imho. Sean put me on to it.
