This playlist concept puts the spotlight on the cowbell. All songs feature the cowbell predominantly through or in a cowbell breakdown portion of a song. In lieu of a actual organic cowbell a casio or other electronic cowbell may or may not have been used in a song. This playlist will have crossover appeal appealing to everyone from the Baby Boomers to the Millennials because I have found that virtually no genre over the last 50 years give or take has been immune to the awesome allure of the cowbell to hold down the beat. Note a couple of the cowbell classics have been recorded more than once like "Peanut Vendor", Big Chief" & "Fire on the Bayou" when really all we need is one version of each & that version is up to the discretion of the fresh planet curator. Also in the case of "Watch n Chain" I have included the Mandy Smith version which is fine but I really would have preferred the The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation version but it wasn't on spotify. Perhaps Fresh Planet can license it. With 242 songs on the spotify playlist it's good to go in the game right now but I always keep my ears open to the next cowbell masterpiece past or present as I see fit. This playlist has been a labor of love since September of 2014 & I look forward to playing it with my opponents. And I am confident it will be enjoyed by many all over the world. Thank you .
