BTW, Tweed, I think you win the Gold Catfish Medal for the best liner note commentary, hands down!  LOL!

13.  Tweed's Mudcatwimmen Blues   (composed, played & sung by Tweed)

[This song] was crafted under great duress & hardship as I haven't sat down to write one for a couple years
& Amos was after me for an original & the original "Traditional" submissions turned out to be owned by young entrepreneurs who scarf up all the old blues songs for personal gain. It was recorded while sitting in this very chair using an Elvis mic laid in a cigar box with the lid set precisely at a 45° angle to capture the Fender 2x12Blues Deville amplified tones of my trusty old telecaster.  The beautiful vocals have been preserved using a Shure 57which was carefully taped to a box of Christmas Lites to elevate it closer to my head, since my boom stand has evidently been permanently borrowed.  The recording device is a cassette tape deck, whose only redeeming features are two mic inputs instead of the usual none.  It also has a Dolby noise reduction button, but I don't think it was activated since the song is mostly comprised of noise.

As for the song...I've been hanging around the new Chatroom lately & risking life & limb to climb in the cyber
Jacuzzi with the resident Sirens who make that their lair & used that for inspiration.  This one goes out to Mz.Sorchy, Liz, Lyrical Lady, Noreen, catsPHiddle, & all the rest of you luscious babes in the MudCat hot tub.  The Moet's on me!"
