JDIZZY's 365 # 278: Mariano

Mariano - Robert Earl Keen (1989)

This song came to me because of a TDK promotional cd that showed you how to best tape your cds to the companies fine line of recordable audio cassettes! Thank God I was always eager to pick up something for free. Robert Earl Keen is one of the masters of the Texas Singer/Songwriter school. Somehow, he has always evaded fame. I can only think this is something he wants, because this is an artist tailor made for the big leagues. Listen to today's track about an illegal migrant worker in an American border town, then search out his album West Textures as a starting point for a career you will find yourself wanting to follow. This is country music for the ages.
