We closed out 2004 by featuring Boudin Barndance favorites from the new release
ranks from the past year. Overall, a so-so year compared to years past as far
as real grabbers go. Kicked off the show with one from Hank Garland who passed
away earlier this week. We'll get into a bigger remembrance set on next week's
program. For 2004, releases from Jon Dee Graham and Lori McKenna led the
charge. The dozen faves went something like this:

1. Jon Dee Graham - The Great Battle (New West)
2. Lori McKenna - Bittertown (Signature Sounds)
3. James McMurtry & the Heartless Bastards - Live In Aught-Three (Compadre)
4. Black Keys - Rubber Factory (Fat Possum)
5. Nora O'Connor - Til the Dawn (Bloodshot)
6. Chuck Prophet - Age of Miracles (New West)
7. Lil' Cap'n Travis - In All Their Splendor (Glurp)
