Ever hear something you hadn't heard before and stopped dead in your tracks? Had a "holy shit" moment? It's one of the coolest things about music, it's a damn bottomless pit. As a sign in a long forgotten record store said "You will never know everything. You will never hear everything. You will never own everything. You will never remember everything". That's precisely what keeps the record geezer going. This thing leads to that, and this label leads to a bunch of people you haven't hear before, and that guy used to play with that guy, and so on. It never stops. Kogar the Swinging Ape knows that. He just posted a blues compilation that took him three years to track down after hearing a not-for-sale copy in a record store. It's raw, it's distorted, and it's old. Bob Log probably thinks he owns the only copy, because Jon Spencer slept in that day.
The two single cuts below aren't on the LP, they're just teasers. But dig the LP, it's a quick download and every cut will put dirt under your nails. Note: When you click on the "Down Home Stomp" link at Kogar's, it'll take you to MediaFire, and it may say "permission denied" and try to get you to sign up. Just close the window and click on Kogar's link again. It should take you to the download. Look for the green "Download" button and you're in business.
