Del McCoury’s Cold Turkey Thanksgiving Special
Every year since 2005, Relix’s podcast Cold Turkey has partnered with Del McCoury to present a special Thanksgiving Weekend music package. Over the years we’ve offered live cuts, studio favorites and even some unreleased material (we were proud to debut the bluegrass icon’s collaboration with Preservation Hall Jazz Band a few years back). Even though Cold Turkey has mostly morphed into our Live at Relix video series, we continue to work with the McCourys every Thanksgiving.
Today’s Cold Turkey Thanksgiving special surveys where Del and the boys are this year. The first comes in the form of “Roll On Buddy” from the Sam Bush/Del McCoury tour. “Blue Moon of Kentucky” and “Maiden’s Prayer” come from the Live from Masters of Bluegrass which featured Del and Jerry McCoury along with Bobby Osborne, Bobby Hicks and J.D. Crowe.
“All Aboard” and “Fanny Hill” were taken from Del McCoury Band’s show at Old Rock House in St. Louis, MO. The Streets of Baltimore album garnered three selections, with “Big Blue Raindrops,” “Butler Brothers” and “Streets of Baltimore” all coming from that album.
