Friday, about 100° outside and it’s time to make tracks, in every sense of the word.

The heat has me a bit languid, so I’m going to let this week’s posts cue Friday’s playlist. 

That’s all we’ve got – a place that’s hot as an oven and a couple of great tunes guaranteed to get you moving into the weekend.

Let’s see where we end up.


I’ve had this one on my mind all week, ever since Saturday’s Tin Roofs.  How could I not?

If I knew where it was, I’d be there too. From the B52’s (5 seconds to skip to video – but it’s the best version around.) Love Shack:


Everyone knows this iconic album cover:


Little Feat, Sailin’ Shoes


But on Monday I was Reminded  that it was modeled 

after this image featured in that post –

Les hasards heureux de l’escarpolette (The Happy Accidents of the Swing)

a 1768 painting by Jean-Honoreé Fragonard. 


Les hasards heureux de l’escarpolette (The Happy Accidents of the Swing)


Quite a little tale of hope, deceit, and frivolity in this painting.


And it all always starts with the patter.


Tennessee Lambs.


Dixie Chickens.


The pitter-patter of Little Feat, here in 1977 with Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, and Jesse Winchester:



‘Guess that guitar player sure could play.’



Yessirree, he sure can.

Mark Knopfler takes us out with some wicked skills, down Telegraph Road.



Telegraph Road


Hmmm, maybe down that road,

set way back, a funky little shack. . . ?


Make tracks.
