Comments
  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 2(ii) of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • Run of four songs featuring women’s names (following similar the previous Friday).
  • Cover versions include Al Stewart's session version of Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie", Jellybread's take on Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog", and Stone The Crows' cover of fellow Glaswegian Alex Harvey's "Penicillin Blues". More unusually, the Jesse Ed Davis track is a version of Stephen Foster's famous minstrel song originally published in 1848, "Oh! Susannah".
