The bulk of the 1st Boudin Barndance of 2006, namely the better of the latter part of the show, was devoted to looking back at some of the reissues from 2005 that hit the sweet spot. Also found time to work some new releases into the Barndance mix. First-timers included new ones from BR549, Slim Chance & the Convicts, and The Coming Grass. Buttshaker of the night?????
