Bill Brewster's 80s Pause Button Tapes (Vol. 6)


It's our final destination. Volume Six. Who'd have thought we'd get this far? Have you marveled at the pause button editing skills on these compilations? I know, shockingly bad, how did he ever get a job involved in music....

Anyhow, this has also got some corkers on it, as all of them have, even if they are segued together in a vastly incompetent manner. There's a particular bent towards roots music on this episode, with everyone from the amazing Billie Holiday in her pomp to the King at his peak and Woody's son Arlo's great boogie rag. Tracklist here:

OTIS CLAY - You Can't Keep Running
BILLIE HOLIDAY - This Year's Kisses
JIMMY RUSHING WITH COUNT BASIE - Gonna Move
MEADE LUX LEWIS - Railroad Blues
ARLO GUTHRIE - Presidential Rag
WILMOTH HOUDINI - Poor But Ambitious
ELVIS PRESLEY - Mystery Train
DC SCORPIO - Stone Cold Lovers
MAGAZINE - The light Pours Out Of Me
LEROY CARR - Barrelhouse Woman
RAMBLIN' JIMMY DOLAN - Hot Dog Race
PAUL JOHNSON - Burning
