Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, from Striking It Rich

I didn’t mean to dwell on this, but I happened to put the Hot Licks’ great album Striking It Rich—which came as a die cut fold out, that opened like a matchbook—on tonight and was reminded of more great Dan Hicks songs.

Here are two, tracks one and three, that I feel compelled to share.  Great songs, clever arrangements, ace (but not showy) solos, all the homely appeal of a ukulele  band, with all the jazz chords and standout performances.
