A collection of tracks pulled from the podcasts of 78rpm collector John Heneghan – featuring music from his own legendary collection of rare shellac, as well as discs from the collection of Robert Crumb – who also makes an appearance on the program too! The tracks are interspersed with commentary from the show – in the manner of a radio broadcast – and the album features two different features, one on "Happiness" in music, the other balanced out with "Pain, Sorry, Sickness, & Death". As you might imagine with collectors like Crumb and Heneghan, the records here are all pretty darn rare – the sorts of things that only exist in a handful of remaining copies on this planet – and titles include "Fixin To Die Blues" by Bukka White, "My Mother's Grave" by Elmer Bird, "Come On Baby" by Rich Trice, "Death Cell Blues" by Blind
Willie McTell, "Hard Times" by Pigmeat Pete, "Old Dog Blue" by Jim Jackson, "The Ohio Prison Fire" by Bob & Charlotte Miller, "I'm Gonna Kill Myself" by Laura Smith, "Tillie Lee" by William Moore, "I Got Mine" by Frank Stokes, and "Sweet Petunia" by Curley Weaver.
