>I was listening to the new Elvin Bishop disc (The Skin I'm In on the
>Alligator label) the other day when I noticed that track #6 called "
>That Train Is Gone" is listed at 7 mins. & 56 secs. long. At the time I
>thought there was probably some extra tasty soloing riffs from Elvin on
>this track. To my surprise the song actually clocked in at about 2:56.
>Not even close!! It's a pretty decent song too, but I wondered what
>happened? Another time about a year ago I was reading the insert
>booklet that came with a compilation disc of various blues artists. At
>the moment I can't recall what label it was on. However the booklet had
>a short bio on many of the artists with photos. W.C. Clark was listed on
>the bio write-up, but there was a photo of William Clarke next to it.
>About 7 years ago a friend of mine dropped by with a Buckwheat Zydeco
>tape for my listening pleasure. It was brand new, it still had the
>shrink wrap on it. Another surprise, no Buckwheat music on the entire
>tape. His name was on the tape & insert card with all he songs listed,
>but it wasn't zydeco music. Instead it was some sort of rock band. It
>was very enjoyable music, but I never did find out who the band was. Oh
>well, this is what keeps life interesting instead of being so damn
