Boudin CD reviews at

The first Boudin Barndance of November featured a birthday salute to Gram Parsons. Once upon a time, for about a dozen years to be exact from 1987 – 1998 we’d do a big ol’ GP shindig, however, with the well so dry, we’ve curtailed it in recent years. Even still, can’t pass the excuse for a song or four as was tonight’s course of action. Lots of first-timers to the Barndance hit parade tonight, too. New releases getting first-time spins included albums from Merle Haggard, Bobby Bare, Diesel Doug & the Long Haul Truckers, the Nick Lowe tribute “Lowe Profile”, Jud Newcomb (who’ll be playing a house concert hosted by yours truly in April), Marah, Kevin Deal, Johnny Cash, and Cari Lee & the Contenders. Buttshaker of the night???? Not until the last track of the night, Jimmie Patton with “Okie’s In the Pokie”. Now onto the goods…..
