REK: Robert Earl Keen (live at Floores Country Store)
It started with a fishing buddy, “Dude, like, you’ve got to hear this one. No, you’ll like it, the guy has a song about a five pound bass.”

Obviously, a reference to REK’s Number Two Dinner CD. Album. Never saw it as a real album, so it’s just a CD.

And a classic. And certainly on my top ten list of all-time CD’s. I’ve bought it three-four times now, seen REK, three-four times now, and can’t recommend either enough.

“Leon Valley 6
San Antonio 15”

It’s the highway sign, on Highway 16, from Helotes, TX.

Singular memory
Terry Allen singing Amarillo Highway
Anticipation
Good age mix
Good racial mix from white blonde girls in tight jeans – onto everything – well, there was a shortage of blacks but not other racial diversity.
The Scorpio cop was there.
“We’re at Floores, a high class place.”
No email list – but I still go.
