Artist: eels

Album: Sixteen Tons (Ten Songs)

Appears On (Mixes): Thirteen Ugly Children Roll Gutterballs

Song Notes: Last weekend was the Weekend Of Rock, and here are the spoils! The first show of the Weekend Of Rock was eels with Strings! It was a really cool show; an actual sit-down concert where they played the slower eels songs, primarily from the new record (though with some older stuff re-arranged, though oddly, very little from Electroshock Blues -- perhaps E thought string arrangements of those songs would have been too obvious, given the subject matter of the record). This song comes from a CD that they're only selling on the tour (although they may, at some point make it available online like they did with the other two show-only CDs, Oh! What A Beautiful Morning and Electroshock Blues Show, and it's currently available on iTunes). The CD is a radio session from the Shootenanny! era, and this is a cover of the old Tennessee Ernie Ford song, and also very, very rockin'. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
