tense bug in the groove sandwich

It's heating up here in preparation for the big G8 march and sleepover. Midge Ure is bringing his kids along and the Dissent Group who have set up a shop on Leith Walk are telling folk to dis the official campsites and just camp anywhere...so I had better check my garden for wombles.They are expected to be at the centre of events. City leaders are calling on organisers of the "Carnival For Full Enjoyment", which is taking place in Edinburgh on Monday, 4 July, to "come forward "saying it could be the most disruptive day of the G8 protests .Billed as a "day of action against work and capitalism", "There is a tense atmosphere in the city, an atmosphere that is very reminiscent of the run-up to the year 2000 and fears of the millennium bug."so says Donald Anderson the Council Leader. Wow!! is that so?? We need a bit of a shake up every now and again...computer death or conspiracy theories about French tunnels help to make the day go a bit faster.
Let's get to the groove of the day...Charlie is a guy that always has me thinking.."here's Elvis" he sounds uncannily like him at times. He won a few awards in his time before zooming up to the big corral in the clouds.Did you know he was awarded
1973 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year
1973 CMA Album of the Year, Behind Closed Doors
1973 Grammy Award - Best Country Vocal Performance
1974 CMA Entertainer of the Year
Here is a fantastic version of a classic
Charlie Rich Ol' Man River MP3
Keeping with good tonsil ticklers, Dwight is worth another posting,this time from his 1990 'If There Was a Way'
Dwight Yoakum Send a Message to my Heart MP3
I don't think this was for Sharon Stone, whom he dated and was famously quoted as saying "Kissing Dwight was like eating a dirt sandwich."
Lastly don't forget these tracks won't be up longer than 7 days and are hopefully an intro to the music i consider parting with your lunch money for, so check out the artists and albums and treat yourself to an aural oasis.
Jesse Malin Brooklyn MP3
His love for Neil Young, Tom Waits, and Steve Earl has given his work a fresh countrified sound. It happens to them all...even those so called indie glam punk rockers..
