I think Jon may be working on some sort of animal theme, but I can't be sure. I tried to collude with him, but he would have none of it. So I colluded by myself to make sure you get a double dose of southern rock this week at the Bottom! Your CRB Album of the Week is Marauder by Blackfoot and your CRB Lost/Forgotten Album of the Week is Road Dogs by The Charlie Daniels Band.
So the thing to do now is to get yourself a cold beverage and a refreshing snack. Find your best ear buds and plug 'em in. Remember, we take at least 4-6 minutes each month to bring you these works of art. So, grab your computer and do some music shopping on Amazon or your site of choice. After all, these artists still benefit from your purchases. Enjoy!

Then a couple of Jazz Influenced Snapping Songs featuring my favorite Tom Waits tune.

The Theme is Finger Snapping In Songs!
And I'll start with a couple of Heavyweights- The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
The Stones one you can probably figure out, but The Beatles?
Oh yes, if you listen closely, and all 4 of The Lads are credited with the Finger Snapping!
It will be America's 244th Birthday, on the day the Declaration Of Independence was approved and ratified, July 4th, 1776.

I believe in Protests, but not destroying things-…
What a CRAZY year, I want a Do-Over, lol!
While I hated to diverge from my Finger Snapping Series, if ever I HAD to do a 4th Of July Show, this is the year!

Here's how this came about, I happened upon a Bobby Darin video where he was snapping his fingers.
And it struck me that the Middle Finger could be used for more than a Salute To The World- it can do Finger Snapping, lol!
Thus a Series was born!
There were 3 Bobby Darins- Rocker,…
