Boudin CD reviews at

Back to the normal Boudin Barndance routine this evening, at least for the first half of the show where we bounced around. The 2nd half of the program was devoted to tribute sets to two fallen heroes, guitar god Link Wray and Chris Whitley who died within days of each other near the end of November. Thanks to pal Jay Sevey who contributed almost all of the Chris Whitley material. A bunch of albums making their Barndance debut during the first half of the program including new releases from Dave Knudsen (big thumbs up!), Edith Frost (thumbs up), Tandy, and old favorite Evan Johns who is flourishing from a recording standpoint up in British Columbia. Check out Buttshaker of the night????? Link Wray, of course, with “Pancho Villa”. Now onto the goods…..
