Day 88

Roy Clark- The Entertainer

The Rangers are down 0-2 in the World Series. So what are you gonna do? Well, if you're me, you'll put on a Roy Clark album!
Seriously though, I'm not ready to concede anything to the Giants just yet. They should win the next three at home and then split in San Fran and we are the champs! I know, I know, it's not looking good, but I'm being optimistic. I've been waiting 26 years for the Rangers to get here!

Ok, The Entertainer album. Not bad, but it's no Lightning Fingers of Roy Clark that's for sure. Sounds like a typical 1970's country record. And that's not a bad thing at all. He's singing on this record so it's completely different from last night. "Duelin' Banjos", "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes", and "Chomp'N" are the three instrumentals on here. "Chomp'N" especially is a bad ass tune. Great play between Roy on guitar and whoever is on the keys. He does quite a few ballads on here too and if I had a beer and a broken heart, I'd be all over them. Check out album closer "It's All Over (All Over Again)" to see what I mean.

Here's a video of Roy owning the banjo:
