Waiting For Alan Lomax

A collection of 34 songs picked by Phillip Lee Duncan

Earl Campbell

According to Caleb Fraid, Phil was like Ken Jennings at Jeopardy. He was always saying hilarious stuff. Could break the fuddiest of fuddy duds. He had a soft spot for his grandma and the gospel. Loved trivia night at the bar and won prizes. Didn’t stay at jobs for very long. Loved some raunchy gossip.

Phil was multi talented. Poet. Singer. Songwriter. Artist. Painter.

“Waiting For Alan Lomax” is an idea Phil came up with back in 2003. He had written it all down on some poster board. Concept, art, track listing. Phil passed away in 2012. Caleb Fraid found the board in a box somewhere.

Phil mentioned 3 Houston athletes as cover stars, the most legendary players on Houston local teams, they all wore number 34.

There are 34 tracks on this compilation. Perfection.

For this series I will be releasing portraits of Earl Campbell of the Houston Oilers, Hakeem Olajuwon (Originally Akeem Olajuwon) of the Houston Rockets, the greatest Houston athlete of all time, the most graceful giant the NBA as ever seen, Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros, the single most dominant pitcher of his era.

This is a Corelease with one my favorite labels: Doormat, TX and it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Caleb Fraid whose love for Phil is infinite and contagious.
