Helm gives us a happy surprise album; this traditional is the kind of stuff that drew him to US South/Midwest music.
Twinkie Clark made many a top-grade gospel song from ad slogans.
Chris Thompson pipes in, with Pete & Maura Kennedy — so they’re strangelings, with a cover of the LaFlamme classic.
Malo was more than just their one hit — for instance, this track had guitar lines and rhythms that at times recall the ones Jorge Santana’s brother Carlos would “Smooth” out over a quarter century later.
