It’s All Rock & Roll to Me – Part 2

rock n roll

 

I mentioned yesterday that I have days at work when I barely do more than turn on my computer, but then there are those days when I’m in front of it for 8 to 10 hours. BMFBV1D1 & BMFBV1D2 are my soundtracks for days like that.

There is a little of something here for just about every musical taste so Enjoy!

OKra Records – Various Artists

Founded by Dan Dow in the late 1980’s, Columbus, Ohio’s OKra Records was home to alternative country/roots rock artists like The Schramms, Hank McCoy & the Dead Ringers, Fellow Travellers, and the Hoot Owls. Several years after it’s founding, like many other small indie labels, it declared bankruptcy and closed up shop.

1991’s Sample Some OKra is a good representative sample of Okra’s roster of artists; although nineteen years after it’s release, perhaps only The Schramms and The Ass Ponys have achieved some measure of name recognition.
