Over onWFMU’s Beware of the Blog
there’s aposton country songs that were recorded to take advantage of how popular The Twist was in the 50’s and 60’s. All of them are ungodly horrible as you might expect, but one of them goes above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways it’s not even funny. Actually it is funny, but you know what I mean.
The tune in question was recorded by a fellow named Ray Kannon. I know nothing about this man, but if the rest of his catalogue is as fantastic as this that may have to change in a hurry. I say this for one reason, that reason being that anybody who takes the Muleskinner Blues, changes a few words and calls it theMuleskinner Twisthas to be a creative genius who’s mind is brimming with great ideas.
