This week we are in search of the Roots of the Master of Cow Folk, none other than Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks...including the Lickettes, of course! According to Yahoo music, and who's to argue with them, "Throughout his decades-long career, Dan Hicks stood as one of contemporary music's true eccentrics. While steeped in folk, his acoustic sound knew few musical boundaries, drawing on country, call-and-response vocals, jazz phrasing, and no small amount of humor to create a distinctive, albeit sporadic, body of work which earned him a devoted cult following." So, where does Dan draw his inspiration...well righ' chere!
