Vintage Spinster (check out her kick ass blog) and I went on a trip to sunny Sacramento. An epic 3 day airport debacle later we arrived and sat by the pool for a day or two, but neither of us could resist the temptations of the thrift stores of California.
I happened upon Red Simpson at a Salvation Army and there were probably 12 different truck drivin' records by Red to choose from. If I knew then what i knew now I would have grabbed them all. Trouble is I already had around 60 LP's to carry back to the east coast and 12 albums about Truck Driving just didn't seem like a wise buy. I chose Truck Drivin' Fool because of the catchy song titles, my favorite (the track above) has to be Diesel Smoke and Dangerous Curves, all about a trucker who encounters a woman with curves that are in fact...dangerous.
It turns out I love Red Simpson. I totally dig this kind of old school honky tonk, Johnney Cash, country sound. It's also educational, I know a lot more about long haul trucking than I ever did before and that is important too. Just Listen to Jackknife.,
