Keith Frank, "Follow The Leader". Clarke bought this at Floyd's Record Shop in Ville Platte after we got a sno-ball on the way out of town after the Smoked Meat Festival. I talk about Keith Frank a lot in my book; he uses zydeco as a cultural sponge that somehow makes everything into a groovier, earthier version of itself.

Thunderclap Newman, "Something in the Air". Forgot all about this tune until I saw the CD at the library. I am into how it zigs into this percussive tense thing around the 2:00 mark and then zags back into full orchestral '69 lush pop and then comes to a sudden stop.
