Sleestak Lightnin!!!, ep. 8 - Old Timey Medicine Show

Download or stream it HERE!

This one isn't really thematic.  I mean, from the vantage point of 2014, it's all "old-timey" music, but the recordings range from the 1920's through the 1950's.  I didn't feel like back-announcing, since I'm getting over a cold, instead I stuck some bits from the Okeh Medicine Show in there to mix it up.  You can find the whole Okeh Medicine Show at  Also, the track "Night Owl" comes from a compilation called Dark Sweets, originally posted on the long-defunct Holy Warbles blog.  You can find that excellent comp here.  I know it's been a while, so I'm gonna try to get another one of these up as quickly as I can.  The tunes:
