Snoopy-dancing All Over The Room

Run run run to the nearest good newstand and snatch up a copy of the Oxford American Magazine. This much-beloved Southern Magazine of Good Writing has been resurrected after a hiatus when some of us feared it was gone forever, and is back with the ever-astonishing Music Issue. Fabulous writing and a CD of amazing music. Here’s the playlist:

“Why You Been Gone So Long” by Johnny Darrell
“Total Destruction to Your Mind” by Swamp Dogg
“1952 Vincent Black Lightning” by the Del McCoury Band
“La Chanson d’une Fille de Quinze Ans” by Ann Savoy and Linda Rondstadt
“Swan Blues” by King Pleasure (Oh my G*d — this is a great cut!)
“Run on for a Long Time” The Blind Boys of Alabama
“Evelyn is Not Real” By My Morning Jacket
“Lake Charles Boogie” by Nellie Lutcher
“Hot Rod” by the Collins Kids (very Snoopy Dance, this one)
“No Headstone on My Grave” by Esther Phillips
“El Paso” by teh Gourds
:”Leaving Loachoapoka Behind” by Marshall Chapman
“Grits Aint Groceries” by Little Milton (yes yes yes yes yes! “Grits ain’t groceries, eggs ain’t poultry, and Mona Lisa was a man.”)
“Killer Diller Blues” by Memphis Minnie
“Miss Maybelle” by RL Burnside
“God Moves on the Water” by Blind Willie Johnson
“Nicky Hoeky” by PJ Proby
“See That Coon in a Hickory Tree” by the Delmore Brothers
“Leaning on You” by the Yo-Yo’s
“You and Your Sister” by Chriss Bell
“Columbus Stockade Blues” by Willie Nelson
“A Little Girl from Little Rock” by Marilyn MOnroe and Jane Russell
“Goodnight Moon” by Will Kimbrough

Music that will make you snoopy-dance all over your living room, and if you’re lucky, if you have a talented dog like our Raymond who will jump up, put his forelegs around your waist, and dance along, you may be in the blissed-out state that I was in all afternoon, with this CD on LOUD (not something I usually do). This is also great music to sit on the porch and drink beer by. This is just great music. Go buy it on the newstand. Buy it for yourself. Buy it for your friends. And then go subscribe so we won’t lose this great magazine a second time.
