Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Yeah, Yeah it's being some time since I've blogged and finding the time is a continuous problem but in the meantime my ears are open and a pandora's box of sounds are continually absorbed.

So too conclude I decided to put out the most tracks I have ever posted before in one go. The genre's are all over the place, the tracks are little gems and they all remind me of why I love this type of music in the first place.


Enjoy...........................................................................



Clyde Owens - The Last Bouquet (From Rock-A-Billy From Tennessee Vol 2)

Bobby December & The Famous Renegades - Invasion (From Stompin' Vol 26)

Webb Foley - Little Bitty Mama (From Bison Bop Vol 3)

The Downliners Sect - Now She's Dead (From The Definitive Downliners Sect : Singles A's to B's)

Boots Randolph - Percolator (From That's What I Like Vol 10)

R.D.Hendon & His Western Jamboree Cowboys - Music Makin' Mama From Memphis (From CD Box Set Hot Guitar - From Boppin' Hillbilly To Red Hot Rockabilly)

Birthday Cake Boogie


Well it was my birthday last week and so filled with joy for all my fellow men and women I thought I'd get back in the saddle so to speak and post some tracks. Two are requests, these are Deke Dickerson and the 'Mighty' Barrence Whitfield who I have witnessed live a few times over the years and he is always a fantastic stage act. As the Barrence track had some 'Dust' in the title this then led me to decide on finding some more Dusty's for your listening pleasure.
Dusty Brown came to Chicago in 1946 and played harp on the West Side and recorded his track for Bandera Records in 1946. Dusty Owens came from Flint, Michigan and recorded for Admiral Records in 1957. Finally Dusty Rose was a DJ on KRNR and recorded his track for Fabor in 1956.


Enjoy....................................................



Barrence Whitfield and The Savages - Dust On My Needle


Dusty Brown - Well,You Know


Dusty Rose - Rockin' Maraccas


Dusty Owens - Hey Honey

There's A Story In Your Voice

Well it's been a very long time and I've missed wishing everyone a Happy Christmas but I am in time to say Happy New Year and even though this is the time of year to make resolutions and plans to change your life, I can't promise I will still be keeping 'Spunky Onions' going in 2009 I shall endeavour to do my best and probably post on a monthly basis.

Of course as every year ends many people have left us and so these songs are dedicated to these individuals who maybe in a very subconscious way may have had an indirect influence on this blog and are those who I can remember !!

Bo Diddley, Paul Newman, Reg Varney, Oliver Postgate, Isaac Hayes, Jack Douglas, Ronnie Drew and dear Jean Baldry R.I.P


Nat Robertson & Guitar - Country Boy (From Stompin' 26)


Cecil McCullough - Pick 'Em Up & Shake 'Em Down (From 10 Years In Texas)


Don Eee - Stop At The Hop (From Ten Long Fingers)


Duke Dickson & The Jivin' Five - Walking Shoes (From Rebel Rock a Billy Rock)


The Dirtbombs - The Thing (From Ultraglide In Black)

Walkin' Down The Line

I think I will welcome myself back to my own blog as once again I have been away for a lengthy absence. I can't go into detail but life in the real world certainly interferes with my quest to post on a regular basis.
Today's offerings are dedicated to 'Ramblers' everyone they might be in a string-band or just be a bunch of people enjoying the fresh smog-free air but whoever or whatever they are I'm sure they will find something here to...
Enjoy.....................................................................


Hackberry Ramblers - Old Pipeliner (From Cajun Boogie)





The Hi-Strung Ramblers - Fleet Bleep Boogie (From Run Boy Run)





Kay & Shirley 'The Dixie Ramblers' - Hee Ho (From Rock Me: Mississippi Hillbilly etc)

Money's Gettin' Cheaper


Let's all forget about the Credit Crunch, Sub-Prime, the Presidential Race, Global Warming and those little white dot's that sometimes appear on your fingernails and let's enjoy life !

So to cheer everybody up, today you get 'Five Jimmy's' to listen and upload if you want to.

It's really surprising the number of artists you can find called Jimmy and I'm positive I may have featured some 'Extra Jimmies' before but I can't be bothered to check.


Enjoy.....................................................................................



Jimmy Robins - I Can't Please You - Jerhart 45' 1966


Jimmy Short - Everybody's Tryin To Be My Baby - From Boppin' Hillbilly Vol 7

One Monkey Can't Stop The Show




Looking at some of my favourite music blogs I can see quite a lot of my fellow 'Bloggers' are finding it harder and harder to find the time to be constantly on time and regular with their posts. I have so much new music to find the time to listen, digest and file, then I need to decide what tracks I want to upload and then post. It is time consuming but ultimately rewarding when you see the finished article on the web and when you receive good feedback through the comments section.
So once again I have trawled the obscure 'Spunky Onion' world of the good, bad and the often quite ugly and below is what I found.
Enjoy..........................................


Lou Millet - Shorty The Barber (Find it on 'Date Bait' - On Buffalo Bop Label)


Charles K. Shields - Go Alabama Girl (Find it on 'Rebel Rockabilly Rock Vol 9 on the Jim Jam Label)


Otis Parker - They Don't Have to Operate (They Just Pull the Zipper) (Find it on 'Hixsville - we'll Have A Time,Yes Siree!' on the Jasmine Label)
