2015 kicks along as legendary Australian singer/songwriter Kevin Bennett (of The Flood) joins host Jeremy Dylan to talk about the little known but hugely influential 1972 classic (and only) album from Americana artist Willis Alan Ramsey.
Along the way, they break down classic tracks “Muskrat Candlelight/Muskrat Love” and “Northeast Texas Women” and chat about how Ramsey made his meticulous sophistication seem laid back and organic, speculate as to why he never made another album, examine his innovative Americana style and reveal which cover of a song form this album was voted the 2nd worst song of all time.
