Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Any posts taken down as a result of the sniveling coward will be re-upped. Check the link below for where to find them in the event that this site is unable to repost them. Don't forget to bookmark http://whereismrvolstead.blogspot.com/ in the event that the internet terrorists shut this page down.

Let's Have Another Cup Of Coffee

Another collection of Depression-era tunes, this one includes my favorite version of Brother, Can You Spare A Dime? by Charlie Palloy as well as this post's title by Chick Bullock. The back cover is some sort of Depression-era cartoon, but is extremely difficult to make out due to all of the track information. The cover seems to have nothing to do with the cd at all, and looks sort of like the cover from J.J. Cale's Shades. Sometimes I wonder what goes through the minds of record company marketing people... Enjoy. +

Apparently the coffee business was one of the few industries not to be hit too hard by the depression. Whether the title song was a cause or effect of that I couldn't say. Either way, this music is as timely now as it's ever been.

It's amazing how today's rhetoric from the business class mirrors that from the Depression, isn't it? I don't know about the coffee business back then, but I could sure handle paying 5 cents for cup of java instead of these boutique prices for burnt beans.
