The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Great White North / Bob Dylan: 7 Years of Bad Luck

Reviews and more to continue once I return from the Great White North (7/18). Oh, and if you live in the area, I just found out The Notes and Scratches are playing that night (7/18) at The Wetlands in Chapel Hill. I'm going to try my hardest to jump off that plane at 8:30pm and head over there. Josh Dumas and company are outstanding and this is their first time in NC, so please show up if you can.

Below is the last of what has been known as JK's Corner. This Bob Dylan boot is entitled 7 Years of Bad Luck and more info about the album can be found at the outstanding BD boot reference site, Bob's Boots.

The 5th Collective Podcast is also up, giving you something else to listen to in my abscence and make sure to visit all the blogs in my links. (Scroll down...all the way down, if you are still using IE) They all have something worth while to say and great music a plenty. See you soon.


Bob Dylan : 7 Years of Bad Luck

(All info below provided through Bob's Boots)

"The Freewheelin' sessions are a perfect 10, coming right off of the mixing console. The quality is good enough to release as official tracks, but the performances are flawed by a botched word, timing, or something similar that left them behind in the vaults. The quality slips to a 7 for (1) and (2), but the powerful and controversial You've Been Hiding is mesmerizing none the less. The quality of the Hotel tape slips even farther to a 5, a 4, and finally to a 3 on Just Like A Woman; and is included only because of its rarity. The 1969 studio outtakes zoom right back to a 9, giving this disc a wide range of sound qualities." ~ BB
