Charlie McAlister is exactly what I've needed. An injection of raw old timey country jams with a hint of schizophrenia. He's well loved, has a prolific profile, and today we are going to celebrate his disregard for high-budget productions. Long live the DIY.

Keith Mansfield's "Night Bird"

I am so incredibly stoked to be sharing this track on ARAWA... I found out about it little over four or five months ago and was saddened by its lack of availability in mp3 form. But, LUCKILY I found it this morning. It's a library production by Syd Dale and Keith Mansfield from 1979. It truly oozes with seventies-campy-swagger. Lately I've been incredibly into "library" music... so I'll be sharing some more of my finds at later dates. I want to pay huge homage though to Cosmobells whom I got this rip from. The blogs out there ripping library records are truly amazing.
