Twenty-five tunes you've never heard because you were not listening.: #14 The Everybodyfields -- The Only King

This one is by a little band from Johnson City, Tn. They grew up and moved to Knoxville, and broke the band up. They have their respective music projects over in Knox County now, as far as I know. As I've said, again and again, doesn't get much more Americana than this.

Yeah, it's a song about Elvis, which, I believe, makes it a song about Tennessee. The combo of the steel guitar and Jill Andrews voice really invoke the High Lonesome Sound for me.

The top 14!

1. The Damned -- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
1.5. The Damned -- White Rabbit
2. Junior Kimbrough -- Gotta Try You Girl
3. Paul Simon -- Stranded in a Limousine
4. Booker T & the M.G.s -- Green Onions
5. Lee Scratch Perry -- I am Happiness
6. The Jam -- In the City
7. Brute -- Nine High a Pallet
8. The Doors -- Peace Frog
9. Scientist -- Dance of the Vampires
10. Patti Smith -- Dancing Barefoot
11. Tribe Called Quest -- Left My Wallet in El Segundo
12. Ray Wylie Hubbard -- Snake Farm

14. The Everybodyfields -- The Only King
