Charlie Ryan & the Timberline Riders- Hot Rod Lincoln/Thru the Mill
Late fifties hillbilly rap rock? More like rockabilly storytelling which Bob Dylan came to be famous for, in a more pretentious way. Too bad he never used slide guitar for sound effects or was this direct and down to earth...common folk ain't into all that poetry shit.
The A-side is a rockabilly classic, but as time goes on I think I prefer "Thru the Mill." Worrying about your music "career" versus your crappy day job? Sounds awful familiar...
