“The Spinning Wheel, baby. I hope I didn’t bring you down.”

Like many of my generation, I was introduced to Lord Buckley by this track’s appearance on Rhino’s excellent 1992 collection, The Beat Generation.  A few months after first hearing this cut I tracked down a copy of His Royal Hipness, turning me onto “The Nazz,” “Cabenza De Gasca, The Gasser” and the rest.  Praise be the Lord.
