Last week I was in Austin and added Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Texas Flood to my Nuggets list. In that post I mentioned a band that I loved in the early 90s, Poi Dog Pondering. Pamela Parker picked up on that in the comments and added that she also was a big fan of Poi Dog.
So that led me to pull out the two Poi Dog records we own and play them. We own the self titled debut album and the follow up, Wishing Like A Mountain.
Both are great records with a wonderful earthy pop sound, influenced by american roots music. But my favorite and the one I always think of when I think of this band is the debut record, Poi Dog Pondering.
The song Postcard From A Dream is worth the price of the record alone.
You can get the record on Amazon.
