Then James and Steve take the stage for a lineup of great old covers (Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line," Tom Paxton's "The Last Thing on My Mind") and plenty of zany originals sung in Y'All's signature whimsically gentle vocals. It all made me really want to watch the show, especially hearing James or Steve (we're on a first-name basis now) yell out, "Take it, Fatty!" to fiddle whiz Fats Kaplan.
But alas, I can't see the show, and you can't either. That's because there is no show. Not yet, at least.
Confidently eschewing issues of chronology, Y'All have gone ahead and put out the sound track without actually having a TV show at all. Oh, there have been meetings with Comedy Central, there are plans, and all the music is done, but so far there's no show proper.
In the meantime Y'All continue to tour and sing such numbers as "Throw Away the Knives and Forks," "My Man, Our Horses, and Me," and my personal favorite, the swingy "My Mama Likes the Feel of Cottage Cheese."
