Who is Ed Burleson? Well, he's a country artist who's been given the thumbs down by every label in Nashville, which alone is enough to ensure that he's the next Dwight Yoakamsays Tornado Records' Bill Bentley, Oh What A Mistake - Sir Douglas Quintet - The Crazy Cajun Recordings (CD).
Yes, that's the same Bentley we know from Reprise Records, the same one who's always there with the latest scoop on the Texas Tornados. One might start to think there was some sort of connection here. Birdman was "not quite right for a straight country artist," laments Bentley, so Tornado was born, a very small label with no staff to speak of. In fact, one of his most recent discoveries is himself! Unfortunately, Meaux, who last we heard was in the Galveston prison hospital, was unavailable for comment "I think maybe he's saving those tapes," posits Bentley, "to get him into heaven".
Rush Evansliner notes author for the Sir Doug collection, says Bentley's ears must be deceiving him, claiming the recordings are definitely the originals, including some material that has never before been released. The label's publicist admits that the photograph of the Quintet -- a mid-Eighties publicity shot -- might have bolstered the confusion. Unfortunately, though Bentley promptly showed up there with a copy of The Prime of By the Oh What A Mistake - Sir Douglas Quintet - The Crazy Cajun Recordings (CD) morning, however, a sheepish Bentley called back to confess that "Doug heard one note and said they were the originals.

What we do know is that he'll be appearing at the Texas Book Festival the weekend of November 5, and maybe looking up a few friends while he's in town. The last time I spoke to him, about two years ago, Nez had hoped to come to Austin to hang around with guitarist Bill Campbella trip he now tells me he never got to make.
If you're a pal of Campbell's, tell him for me about Nesmith's visit; so far, I haven't been able to find anyone who's not mad at him to pass on the information. He was in town last week for a private appearance at a computer conference, and when the Chron asked his secretary if Adams would care to sit for an interview while he was in town, she told us that he planned to fly in and out of town with as little time between the flights as possible. The reason? Seriously, though, fans of Brown's better half can check out the new album, Meet the Mrs.
Candles for Clifford Clifford Antone claims to have no idea what birthday he's celebrating this Friday at the club that bears his name. He's also not sure who's going to play beyond Sue FoleyToni Priceand Lou Ann Bartonsaying that any surprise guests are being kept a secret from him as well.
As far as postulations that this could be his last birthday at the club, as his sentencing date draws ever nearer, the longtime live music icon will only say that, "It might be, but God Oh What A Mistake - Sir Douglas Quintet - The Crazy Cajun Recordings (CD) good.
I learned to take it one day at a time a long time ago. Unfazed, Antone says his hopes, as always, rest on Austin having enough music fans to make both shows a success. Perhaps they would've preferred the slightly more intimate setting of the troubador's "secret" show at the Saxon Pub Friday night, but seeing how poorly kept a secret that show was, they'd have likely not been able to get in the door.
