For The Sake of ...Howe Gelb
Quite a while back Ramone666, proprietor of the most excellent For The Sake Of The Song, asked if I had a "Best of 2011" list. Nope. No, I don't. I wouldn't know where to start, or stop. But as I've mentioned over on his site, I do love all things Howe Gelb, including the great 2011 lp Alegrias. So as a very belated Winter holiday present for everyone, and especially Sr. Ramone, here is a digital copy of the very first Gelb-related music I ever purchased, the third 7" by the pre-Giant Sand Giant Sandworms. I read a good review in Bucketfull of Brains (my bible at the time) & there ya go!
Here's the a-side:
Giant Sandworms - Don't Turn Away (One Big Guitar 001, 1986)
The b-side isn't really all that, but completists such as myself will want it anyway. Plus I threw in a bonus picture of Howe with cats. Get the whole thing here.
