Weekend music, part 2: Colorado Kool-Aid

Posted by Richard on July 3, 2011

Back in the 70s, when I was living in Knoxville, TN, Coors was a regionally distributed beer with a national reputation. It had such a mystique about it that people would bring a van or pickup load of it back from Oklahoma (or maybe it was Arkansas) and sell six-packs for three times the price of Budweiser. The late, great Johnny Paycheck's "Colorado Kool-Aid" is from that era. Enjoy!

Paycheck didn't just speak, he sang too. "I'm the Only Hell (My Mama Ever Raised)" captures the outlaw image he cultivated.

Here's a fine live performance of "Lefty Was Right After All," a tribute to the great Lefty Frizell.
