Cover Me, Part Two

Louie the Pug, May 2007
Under the guise of turning the world onto lesser known singer/songwriters, I'm offering S.O.L.'s second 'name that tune' -- and this time there's a prize involved. Time for you lurkers to get on board (I know you're out there). Again, thanks to my friend Undercover Black Man, for turning me onto Truth is, I stole the contest idea from him.

This guy has been around for awhile, but only in the last three or four CD's, has he expanded his repertoire from acoustic blues to his brand of what I like to call singer/songwriter Americana. This here is a cover he did of a famous old folk song.

First one to gets the artist and the song title correct will get a choice between the new Wilco CD "Sky Blue Sky," or Patti Smith's "12."

Good luck all

NOTE (5/17/07): We have a winner. I thought this one might take awhile but I'm thrilled that it didn't and Kelly Joe Phelps gets his due. Congratulations, UBM, send me your address and let me know which CD you'd like.

Thanks for the kind words about my Pug, Daniel. Believe me it's not hard to fall in love with Pugs. They are wonderful dogs, smart, loyal, funny and have loads of personality. We got Louie through a pug rescue group in Los Angeles. They have pug rescues all over the country -- if you're interested in getting one, those groups are usually the best place to start.
