Two big things on The Boudin Barndance agenda this evening. First up we concluded our deep dive into the new 10-CD The Bakersfield Sound box set from who else but Bear Family Records cherry picking our way through discs 8 & 9 of the collection. We also saluted 25 years of Bloodshot Records by shining the spotlight on the new and excellent 25th anniversary compilation Too Late to Pray: Defiant Chicago Roots. Aside from that, it was the usual Barndance mash-up. New and recent releases making the Barndance hit parade for the first time included albums from EmiSunshine & the Rain and Ramblin’ Deano & The Ice Cold Singles. Buttshaker of the week???? From The Bakersfield Sound box, Sharon Haley with “Heartbreak Mountain.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or two, and get to the goods….
