Night Music: Ry Cooder and Flaco Jimenez, “Do Re Mi”

Another Woody Guthrie song, for obvious reasons.

The video that went along with Lawr’s post of Deportee spoke directly to the issue of the state of California keeping dust bowlers from Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas out of their state. Bastards!

Woody Guthrie wrote a rollicking good song about that situation. I saw this band back in 1977 at the Bottom Line. They seem a little stiff, but professional, on the Old Grey Whistle Test, but they were rollicking in NYC when I saw them. It was a great show.
