Wow. A 2-CD set of prewar blues, old time music and hokum entitleed "Good For What Ails You: Music of the Medicine Shows, 1926-1937." The 48-song track list is too long to post here, but it's probably on their web site. Old Hat Records strikes again.

Should be pretty interesting for anyone looking for pre blues material.

All for now.

If Old Hat's previous releases are any indication, this set promises to be spectacular. They do pretty much everything the way it should be. I eagerly await the tracklist and the release.

Yeah, I've been meaning to pick up "He Sure Do Pull Some Bow" but after visiting their web site I may just pick up both fiddle CDs and Joe Bussard's Down in the Basement, too. Sheesh!
All for now.

Hey Everyone ? What a month (I'm gonna be broke)! We just got the new Old Hat set in ? Good For What Ails You, Music of the Medicine Shows 1926-1937.

I haven?t had a chance to pop it in yet, but I must say the packaging is great. The Joe Bussard collection was nice, but already this one seems to trump it easily. I can tell from the track listing that it is going to be good (my favorite Papa Charlie Jackson song Scoodle Um Skoo is included). The notes & photos seem really well done (though I have not spent much time looking them over yet).

I?ll get some Real Audio samples in later this evening on the Venerable Site - http://www.venerablemusic.com/catalog/TitleDetails.asp?TitleID=10186

There is more information on the Old Hat site here - http://www.oldhatrecords.com/Releases.html#1005

I know I'm responding to my own post, but I'm excited - what can I say? I've listened to 'bout half of it & I think I can say it's a must have. Every track is great (or interesting at least)! I did want to say that the Shorty Godwin track really stood out on first listen, plus it's nice to have a legitimate copy of "Beans" by Beans Hambone, which I originally downloaded from the Weenie site a while back. I think it was from a topic called "Why was that recorded" (or something to that effect). The same tone is echoed in the liner notes when it says "Their rendition of Beans is so eccentric that it's a wonder any phonograph company would deem it capable of commercial viability". Long Live Hokum & Bring On the Vaudevillian Antics!

I'm about half way through also and will echo Malcolms sentiment - put it on your short list. A must have. Great set, great quality, great booklet!

And now on the Juke!

How To Boil A Chicken. Having just returned from the market with a fresh chicken ready to boil and by coincidence finding the great new CD's "Good For What Ails You" in my mail box and noticing that the subject of chickens comes up frequently in this music; I thought it might be informative to Weenies to know how to boil a chicken. This is a receipe I got off of one of those radio cooking shows.

Place a whole chicken in a pot large enough to completely cover with water, (spices, onions, celery etc. are optional). Place on stove and bring to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes then cover and turn off heat and let chicken continue to steep in the water until it cools. Comes out perfect everytime. Great for sandwiches and chicken salad or good nuked in the micorowave.

The resulting broth is great for  soup making but I do not recommend using the same chicken to add to your soup as it will be over cooked. Use raw chicken that has been diced into small pieces and add when you reheat portions of the soup. Usually cooks in just a few minutes. Intensifies the flavor and has a much better texture.

Of course, listening to this CD or Weenie Campbell is mandatory during all cooking and preparations.

Regards, Phil

Thanks for the cooking tips, Phil.  I can use all the help I get in that area.  Sounds like you wound up with a couple of things that were good for what ails you yesterday.
All best,
Johnm

Does anyone have the lyrics to Jim Jackson's "I Heard the Voice of a Porkchop"? IMHO, the title alone makes it a contender for Song of the Year.  ;)
