So my friends and I get together for our yearly holiday shindig and there is music and fun and silly camaraderie. The music that holds up the next day during our raucous card game (peanut, if you don’t know it, you should learn it. And be prepared for some surprising in-game language from people you thought you knew…) are real keepers.
One of my recently favorite albums that made an appearance if Joe Purdy’s 2007 album “Take My Blanket and Go”, specifically the song “White Picket Fences”. It’s a twisting soul-felt intense blues number. See below for an impressive 9 1/2 minute version of the tune (there is a second song on the video as well).
And if you think you’ve heard him before, you probably have. His mellow “Wash Away” was featured on an early season of the very popular LOST.
And for this month only, download his new album for free on his official website http://joepurdy.com/
