Editor's note: who knew that Meadowlark Lemon put out an album? Not I. After hearing it you will have more probable cause just why that is. Now, some of you are probably asking, "Who the funk is Meadowlark Lemon?" He isn't Wilt Chamberlain, that's for sure, and so most likely the "my Kids" he refers likely aren't featured on the cover. As for the record itself: it's nothing spectacular but by no means is it terrible. That said, I can't think of one song besides Earthmen which does anything for me and that's only because the record is entitled "My Kids" and the Earthmen seems like a total disconnect. It still beats Madonna in the mad-morning crush of your existence, doesn't it?
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
