Aretê Krista pointed my attention to the Karaoke Cowboy tape by the late Slim the Drifter, and I’ve been listening to it appreciatively. There’s so very much recorded music flooding our environment — I wonder how the music bloggers manage to listen to anything more than once, just at the level of raw time-consumption; I’ve always been a constant-listener, but at this point I’ve ripped and downloaded megabytes of recordings that I haven’t yet listened to — there’s so much to hear that one can understand how some worthy efforts get lost in the swirl.

If you have a soft spot for Bakersfield country-rock, head over to Jeff’s place and listen to Slim. (And thanks, Jeff, for so generously including me among the “usual suspects” Tom, Ray, Mark — someday I’ll have to start thinking again.)
