We began tonight's Boudin Barndance by continuing our look back at 2009 releases that struck a BB nerve. That was the 1st half of the program. The 2nd half of the show was devoted to domestic reissues/historical collections that hit the Barndance sweet spot. Buttshaker of the week???? The very cool, previously unreleased shaker from Mississippi rockabilly Mack Allen Smith titled "Free, Single & Disengaged." Now let's all grab a cold one and get to the goods....
