Discount Romance (Who’s first single can be found at the bottom of this fine blog) is about to put out a new video entitled, “Sweet Leaf”. The subject matter is pretty well self evident. As a tribute to this grand premier, which is but a scant few days off, I thought I’d present some other artists who have performed songs on this very subject. There are some pretty groovin’ tunes out there about tying one on with a doob.
And here they are for your enjoyment.
Couldn’t find a picture of here on the web, though there is one on the video.
Yack Taylor – Knockin’ Myself Out – Poor Miss Taylor has a run in with the police while partaking. She needs to get herself a medical marijuana card.
Harlan Lattimore & His Connie’s Inn Orchestra – Reefer Man – Not exactly the Lou Reed song, but it’s pretty darned cute spoken homage to the wacky tobaccie.
Harlan Lattimore’s Wiki page is here:
Stuff Smith & His Onyx Club Boys – Here Comes the Man – Could this have been the inspiration for Mr. Reed and his tardy friend. (Notice the prices mentioned!)
Important Stuff Smith info here:
Trixie Smith – Jack I’m Mellow – Trixie is having a great time. That old dry throat comes up in quite a few of these songs. Perhaps the giveaway to those “In the know”.

Here is Discount Romance’s very first single and video. Now available on I-Tunes and Amazon!

And here’s the latest song by Death of the Author Brigade:
'Boy Next Door' is a bouncy little tune about a girl taking "Being Neighborly" to the next level. Who lives across the lawn from you?
And here is Don’t Tell Betsy’s latest video. Enjoy the spectacle.
