Yeah like I need an excuse to play Dylan (actually I think I play less o'Bob than I did at Jungle). But yes it's Bob's birthday tomorrow (69) so I'll put together what I think will be an interesting playlist of Dylan and Dylan covers. No Christmas album, promise. And as always, we take requests.
I've blogged before about Lee Clayton, a terrific if little known singer-songwriter who did a series of fine albums in the mid and late seventies. His first album, cleverly titled "Lee Clayton", came out in 1973. I've never seen it. I believe it sold 43 copies. Well guess what shows up at The Greatest CD Shop in the World in Saigon yesterday. How did that get there?? Who made that stocking decision (this is a jazz and classical shop after all). Got it now ($1.75). Go Figure.
What a great week this was, with two Dengue Fever shows that both came off splendidly. A packed house at Parkway and a wonderful outdoor show in the park near Wat Botum, as well as an after-concert party with the band at Garage after the Parkway gig. You'll find some pics of the park concert on my Facebook page. Thanks to all who bought tickets from us at Garage -- all 100 sold out, thanks to Brian for designing the great tour t-shirt (hoping to get some more at Garage), and thanks to all the members of Dengue Fever for making this such a great week.
A reminder we're still selling the Sothea-Sisamouth Collection to benefit CLA -- 14 sold so far.
Tickets for Dengue Fever's May 11 show at Parkway will be on sale at Garage for $10 ($12 at the door). I expect we'll have our block of tickets for sale on Tuesday. It's not a huge venue so don't delay in picking up your tickets!
Brian has also finished design of a dynamite tour t-shirt which will be available at the show and later at Garage.
