It's all Greek to me

The subtitle ("A Salute to New York's Bouzoukee Casbahs") made this one irresistible to me for posting purposes. You should grab a copy just for the "hip" liner notes. Apparently there is a much-more-difficult-to-find volume two, as well, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for that.

You Can't Shake Knoxville

Knoxville music near-gods The V-Roys got the band back together one last (?) time for a New Year's Eve 2011 show twelve years after they last performed. Memories were refreshed, minds were blown, legends were confirmed.

Here's my audience recording from the 10th row. (no, that's not me "whooo!"-ing all the damn time - it was the guy next to us.)
