Lowell Folsom - Why Don't We Do It In The Road

My apologies for not posting regularly. I'm looking for a job. If you've got a job for me, please send me an email. Now that I've addressed possible employers I will tell you a story about my drug use.

When I was younger my best friend M*** bought a joint from his older brother E***. He also borrowed his other older brother's copy of the Beatles' White Album. We got totally high, turned the lights off, and listened to Revolution #9. It was probably only my second time smoking the herbage. I've been a fan of the White Album ever since.

I recently picked up a copy of Lowell Fulsom's cover of another song from the Beatles' White Album: Why Don't We Do It In The Road. I really like covers that make people scratch their head in confusion. I've gotten a chance to play this tune out a few times and I've had more than one person come up to me and ask what the song is. The song is familiar to everyone because it's a frickin' Beatles cover, but it's got this low down blues thing going. And, I love how he's extended the lyrics to include cars and houses.

I hope you like it.
