Here is an album I picked up at the Alley Walk a couple years back. The first solo album by Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna fame. This is also credited to Tom Hobson, who has two of the songs on here. A bunch of originals by both men, along with some Rev. Gary Davis and other cover tunes. And an awesome flying psychedelic ice cream cone-man cover.
This is guitars, voice and a few strings. Which seems like it will veer into cheeseiness, but it stays cool throughout.

here is an album i have wanted to put up for a while now. found this down in the basement while searching for records to play at the first BUST A NUT PRODUCTION. i dismissed went past it at first because of the horrible cover design. but came back and grabbed it. and totally glad i did. i often refer to this album as "grocery store funk." but maybe it is just r&b or smooth jazz. i don;t know or really care.

"an important new writer-performer who deserves to be heard"

that desperation is what caught my eye, when i found this gem. bringing it home a couple weeks ago was a great idea. the humbleness of jerry glenn is so awesome. i haven't been able to find anything on the internet about this man. but found some people selling this LP. Must be his only released effort. put out by mega records out of nashville, tennessee. but this is some good ol' folky-country songs. hokeyness starts to invade the songs at the end of the album, but methinks the first side and first half of the second are nice.

Some Career

This LP was found at the Alley Walk, in 2002, i believe. Many more Alley finds will come later.
I picked this up because I noticed that the record label had a PO from Champaign, IL. Smoking Munchkin Records. This is some sorta "college-rock". But doing research found that these guys opened up for Hot Tuna and Jason and the Scorchers and even Stevie Ray Vaughn. I guess these dudes liked to jam out.

Jah Woosh

Found this disc for a quarter at a local secular private school rummage sale. I was surprised that it wasn't snatched up by a kid earlier in the day. oh well. some decent raggae, from a dj i hadn;t heard of before. not that i am really up on the scene as i wish i was.

home-town boys

here is the debut lp by local band E*I*E*I*O. a band that sort of got almost big back in the mid-80s. their debut album "land of opportunity" was co-produced by mark linett and steve berlin. i guess you call this roots rock
