Remembering Steve Goodman

This Sunday, September 20 marks the 25th anniversary of the death of Red Pajamas Records recording artist and famed songwriter Steve Goodman. Steve Goodman (July 25, 1948 - September 20, 1984) was born and raised in Chicago, and by 1969 had become a regular performer at the city's celebrated folk music clubs.

In 1971, with a little help from Kris Kristofferson, he signed his first major recording contract. It was also at this time, when he met Arlo Guthrie, who later made Goodman's hit "City Of New Orleans" legendary a year later.

In 1974, Goodman's "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" achieved considerable success on the country charts with artist David Alan Coe. Goodman's passion also rested with the city of Chicago and his beloved Chicago Cubs. He wrote and performed many humorous songs about them, including "The Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" and "Go, Cubs, Go."

Goodman was closely involved with the Old Town School of Folk Music, where he met and mentored his good friend, John Prine.

Around the time Goodman's career began to take off, he was diagnosed with leukemia. The entire time he was writing and singing, he was also fighting cancer. On September 20, 1984, Goodman died at University of Washington Hospital in Seattle, Washington.

In 2007, the Chicago Cubs began playing Goodman's 1984 song "Go, Cubs, Go" after each home game win. When the Cubs made it to the playoffs, interest in the song and in Goodman's prolific career surged, resulting in October 5, 2007 being declared Steve Goodman Day across the state of Illinois.

We encourage you to check out to learn more. We also are running special prices on all CDs from Steve in our online store. Please check out for details and enjoy our newly revamped storefront.

Thanks and have a great weekend. Talk soon.

John Prine Rambles On...

As many of you know, John Prine played a show at the historic (and recently renovated) Beacon Theatre in New York City this past weekend. As usual, the show was a blast, and the opener, Justin Townes Earle, more than held his own. Expect to see him back with John at some point down the road.

What many of you might not know is that John made a quick trip up to Woodstock, NY to play with the Levon Helm Band at his concert series known as "Midnight Rambles" the next evening. Sounds like a pretty good time huh?

Well, since most of us missed this quaint occasion, John and Levon have decided to give us another chance to see them live. They will be playing two dates together this summer: June 6 at Chastain Park Ampitheatre in Atlanta, GA. and June 13 at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets to these shows. They're sure to be a BLAST!

Opening Day Discount!!!!

That's right folks, baseball season goes into full swing (get it?) today! Sure, it's a Monday, but it may be the best Monday of the year. Especially when the NCAA Championship game is on the same night.

Anywho, we wanted to pass along a discount code to you all in celebration of the 2009 baseball season, and of course our beloved (but more importantly Steve Goodman's) Cubbies. It's 101 years and counting Chicago, but as with all sports, fans will hold onto the belief that this year, may indeed be their year...

Enjoy as much baseball as you can today and remember, "Go Cubs Go"!!!!

Duane Jarvis RIP

Oh Boy Records is sad to announce that longtime friend, collaborator and world class musician Duane Jarvis passed away yesterday in his Los Angeles home after a 16 month bout with colon cancer. He was 51.

Jarvis played guitar and bass on a number of recordings for John Prine as well as on the road with him for some time. He had, as Rosie Flores once said, a "Keith Richards flair and a honky-tonk heart". His spirit and creativity will certainly be missed.

Read more about Jarvis and his life in this Tennessean article by Peter Cooper.
