Saturday Vinyl (Part 1)

It’s an otherwise beautiful, crisp Autumn day here in Ridgeway.  I enjoyed a nice 45k spin this morning along some of the most scenic parts of the Niagara Parkway and surrounding area and now, while Kelly sleeps (and before I cut the lawn) I’m enjoying a hot cup of coffee, my book  (‘The Death of Marco Pantani‘ – Matt Rendell), Tina the Cat and Da Blues with this ‘At the Bunkhouse‘  album by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee.


This album features two prominent Piedmont-style bluesmen at a time when both were still relatively young…for bluesmen that is. (Meaning, they weren’t dead yet).

The album was recorded live at The Bunkhouse (I guess you got that) in Vancouver, British Columbia, which was more or less a coffee shop located in the basement of 612 Davie Street. It opened in 1963 and hosted well-known acoustic acts like Ian & Sylvia and these guys, as well as local performers. This particular show was performed in the winter of 1964-1965 and released that following spring.

So that’s pretty cool.

Perfect Autumn chill-out (if you’ll pardon the expression) music.


About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
