Willis Alan Ramsey is today’s Final Vinyl.  His self titled album was put out 42 years ago and he has yet to put out a new record since then.  Check out the song “Ballad of Spider John”- this live version is from Texas Connection circa 1990 (Ramsey is from Texas).  Jimmy Buffet enjoys covering this tune.

Today’s Final Vinyl is Broken Barricades, the 1971 album by Procol Harem.  It was their last record with core member Robin Trower on guitar before he left for a solo career.  This song “Power Failure” has also been covered by Leo Kottke in a totally different way.
