As many of you know, last Thursday we lost Jim Boyer. Jimmy was a great musician, a phenomenal guitar player, a soulful singer, and an insightful songwriter. He was also one of the sweetest, most generous people you’d ever meet, and maybe a person not really meant for this world.
I’m going to play a good chunk of a show by the Jim Boyer Band almost exactly two years ago, Jan. 30, 2014, at the Laurelthirst Public House. I want to thank my friend Greg Fuller for recording this show and sharing it with us. I’m going to get the announcements out of the way, then Jimmy will introduce the show.
1 – Turkey Red; W.C. Beck & the Portland Country Underground.
2 – Intro
3 – Long Distance Operator.
4 – Cookin’ With Gas.
5 – Chitlin’ Cooking Time in Cheatham County.
6 – Ruthie’s Moan.
7 – Heavy Boots.
8 – Here I Come Again.
9 – Pony Express.
10 – Whenever You Call Me By My Name.
11 – Transmission; the Freak Mountain Ramblers from their 2004 live album, Church.
12 – Three Shots to the Wind; from his solo album, Time Spent, also from 2004.
13 – Twang Theme, The Countrypolitans.
