The third week of the 12 week folk-like series on Gulls Window Circus, alphabetically covering the letters D-F. Stuffed with unlikely but fitting finds, even going so far as to unearth my sister’s private press West Virginia band in 2000, The Elktones. Names that should be known to regular listeners include Delaney & Bonnie, Ned Doheny, Durutti Column, Everything But The Girl, East River Pipe, The Farmer’s Boys, Felt, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Brigitte Fontaine, Robert Forster [Go-Betweens] and Free Design. Joys for those who love to dig further would be Karen Dalton, Luther Dickinson, Donna Regina, Donnie & Joe Emerson, Fairport Convention, and Flunk. As well as uncovering my sister’s band, we hear Firecat, the 1999 Tim Sprague band(of Crow Follow – we used to play together in GingerBread Men as well). Jay Ferguson, who used to front Spirit and Jo Jo Gunne is here, Bill Fox who used to front The Mice as well. A few treats you are unlikely to have met: Grandma Dixie Davis, Terry & The Pirates [Terry Dolan], Downsiders, Family, Family Of God, Fantastic!, Emmett Finley, Flying Norwegians, and Robert Lester Folsom, each more-than earning their spot on board.
