Doc, you were so nice to me in the other thread, the one with the funny name, that the least I can do is keep THIS one floatin’ for ya.
From what I’ve seen on their website, and in the reviews in Amazon and CDNow, these guys seem to be doing for the Jug Band movement what the SN Zippers and the CP Daddies are doing for Swing. Am I right?
I personally love jug bands (as well as most other kinds of early-20th century pop music), and I heartily approve of the songlists on these albums: “Hesitation Blues,” “Shave 'em Dry,” “Deep Elem Blues,” yum. I’ll give them a try and report back to you.
FYI: MOTHER MCCREE’S UPTOWN JUG CHAMPIONS has just been released on CD. Long-thought lost tapes recorded in Palo Alto, 1964, featuring Bay-area folkies Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, who would go on the next year to found the Grateful Dead.
(To answer your other question on the previous thread: Nah, I stole the name directly from the original Ukulele Ike. Ish Kabibble and Harry “The Hipster” Gibson were already taken.)
