Tommy Malone appears on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Creative Arts Center on the campus of West Virginia University.

The prime mover behind the New Orleans swamp-rock band The Subdudes, Malone has been a fixture in the Louisiana music scene and beyond for 40 years. He began in a family band that included his brother, Radiators guitarist Dave Malone, and worked as a sideman; he also helped found the storied music collective The Continental Drifters.

Tommy Malone's third and most recent solo album, Poor Boy, recently arrived a dozen years after Soul Heavy. This set includes the song "Natural Born Days," which was not heard during the radio broadcast.

Set List

  • "Home"
  • "All Dressed Up"
  • "Natural Born Days"
  • "Once In A Blue Moon"
  • "Didn't Want To Hear It"
