Let's Rove and Gamble

This afternoon I picked up this and half a dozen other really groovy albums at Community Thrift at 17th and Valencia. (Esther Phillips singing "Native New Yorker"!) Although it has some great tunes, I must admit the cover of this Hank Thompson album is what made me think it was worth investing $1.50. Is it just me, or do you think in this photo Hank looks a little...?

Well, and Hank sounds a little, too. Make sure to listen to "Humpty Dumpty Heart" one of these days. I also have a compilation with a picture of really young Hank; he looks like Sean Hayes.

Rich - I sort of thought "Wow, Sean Hayes cut a country album!" when I first saw this. But then Sean butched it up to play Jerry, not.

Was "Humpty Dumpty Heart" a precursor to "Achey Breaky Heart"?

While searching for a fitting picture of young Hank yesterday, I found one on this blog you may enjoy:

Seems to have the same love of cultural ephemera that you, I and pretty much all the people we talk to have.

Rich - Great tip on that blog. We seem to all be cut from the same wacky cloth.

...swishy in his satin and tat?
In his cowboy shirt and bibbity bobbedy hat?
