Over the weekend, I began working on the Featured Artists list for next month and narrowed my list from 52 down to 20.  I’m happy about this list, and I look forward to bringing you another great list of featured artists from all around the world.

 Meanwhile, in our Band of the Month voting, Black Jake and the Carnies continue to lead, while The Foresters have moved into second.

We shuffle up some music from our archives, so let’s get to it.

Jeremy was the third single from Pearl Jam’s 1991 debut album, Ten.  “Jeremy spoke in class, today.” (see I Don’t Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats)


 

The next song in our Monday Shuffle is from one of the bands that contributed to the soundtrack of my young adult years.  I had the good fortune of seeing Guadalcanal Diary live several times in the late 80s.  Watusi Rodeo is off of the Georgia band’s full length debut, Walking in the Shadow of the Big Man and is a rollicking, foot stomping, rave-up of a good time. “Don’t they know it’s all for show…”

 

Johnny Cash released his debut album in 1955.  With His Hot and Blue Guitar included the now classic Folsom Prison Blues. In 1968, Cash would performed the song at Folsom Prison and released the classic At Folsom Prison a live album which helped to revitalize his career. “I hear that train a-coming…”

Kill the Messenger is the opening track from John Wesley Harding’s under-appreciated 1992 album Why We Fight. It’s a great song from an amazing album.  If you missed out on this, do yourself a favor a check it out.  Like all truly great songs, it has a timeless quality, and is not at all rooted in the year it was made.
