Sin and Salvation

Almost missed January. Call it recovery time from the Holidays. Damn, I'm always making excuses for late posting.

Couple of quick hits before the music:

Over at Barstool Mountain, we're back up with a whole vat-full of Wynonie Harris! Grab 'em with a cold one.

Rev Frost is back! Hallelujah!

Special treat for all y'all today, then, in honor of Rev. Frost.

It's often said that all art is the search for god. While that may be true for some forms of artistry, we'd like to think that the good ole devil maintains a stake in the proceedings too. Without sin, where would the salvation be, after all? It's the classic conflict, innit?

Well, we're not exactly theologians here at the Mountain, but we know what we like. A little vice, a little sex, a little sip, a little glory hallelujah. And all shall be well.

So please enjoy the following mix (the first of many?) made especially, sinner and saint.

Next post will a tribute to one of the few perfect albums ever made.
