We lost the relatively unknown and elusive Ted Hawkins on a New Years Day. Ted preferred his gig as a street performer around Venice Beach living a life of addiction, jail, and restlessness until 1994 when Geffen Records nailed him down long enough to get an album out him. "The Next Hundred Years" brought some success to Hawkins, it was a breakthrough album, but Ted died of a stroke New Years Day, only months after its release.
Its one of those albums that plays great all the way through, and you might find it on the throwback shelf at Half-Price books.

Oh, hell why have one when you can do two for twice the price?
