This version of Tennessee Stud is a big crossroads in my love of roots music. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will The Circle Be Unbroken was one of only a handful of country or bluegrass stuff in my parents collection when I was kid, and Doc Watson was probably the first country or bluegrass artist I really got into on my own. I used to download live recordings of his shows and listen to them on my commute to community College back when. I was even lucky enough to see him play live before he passed, his voice is amazing and his guitar playing was always so clean. Anyway, once I started really collecting and doing my show I always wished this song was on 45 but from what I could tell it hadn't ever been pressed, then just a week or two ago I checked discogs and it turns out I was wrong, there was a pressing. Fast forward a couple days and now I have it on my turntable. .
Not only did this song help me hear Doc Watson initially, it also brought Jimmy Driftwood to my attention, an artist I always love finding records of. I wish I could find a copy of him playing it on 45, but if it exists I can't find hide nor hair of it.
Found a couple things from my want list and a couple things I didn't even know I was looking for. Been looking for a reasonably priced copy of Goseball Brown for at least a year, same with The Devil My Conscience And I.
A friendly reminder from your friends in Mason Proffit. "Put down your toke, learn to vote, and you can hit em where they're gonna feel." Found this in a box labeled "summer 17" and I have literally no recollection of picking it, but it's topical and unique. Side A is a whole song and side B is three short PSA's. Swipe for samples.
