A Real Rhapsody playlist blog of questionable quality

Josh White Monday

There was a bumper crop of oddball albums right up my alley on the Just Added list over the weekend. I'm going to highlight a couple or three here. Huge thanks to whoever it is at Rhapsody that keeps mixing things up and adding things that will obviously never show up on the Top Artists list.

First up, three volumes of Josh White on Document Records. These old blues recordings have been pouring in all summer, and are a real education unto themselves.

These versions of Paul & Silas and Timber will be of particular interest if you also happened to spend a significant part of the late 80's and 90's waist deep in a pile of XLII-90 cassettes of Phish shows. And, last week I had a playlist with One Meatball on it, but my brief search didn't turn up a version by Mr. White, the man who wrote the song. I'm fixing that today.
