Boudin CD reviews at
Recent reviews include a Norton Records Roundup of 2006 releases as well as releases from Sunny Sweeney, Brothers & Sisters, Dave Insley, Bloodshot Records (the new DVD collection), Bobby Bare Jr., Wayne Hancock, Scott H. Biram, The Meat Purveyors, and Wee Hairy Beasties.

It was back to a regular old Boudin Barndance this evening. Seeing it was his birthday today, we featured tracks from the new 3-CD Tom Waits collection called Orphans. It’s must-have goods if you’re a Waits fan and even if you’re not, it’s pretty darn swell. In addition to the Waits blast, there were a number of recent albums receiving first-time Barndance spins this evening including new ones from Johnny Cash, Angela Desveaux, Mindy Smith, Sean Mencher, and Cole Mitchell. Buttshaker of the night?????? Joe Clay with the classic “Duck Tail”. Now onto the goods….
