This music's totally on acid…and base

If you buy one blues and classical influenced hybrid flamenco fusion album this year, make sure it's from Dr. Lawrence Puckett. A Highland Park chemistry teacher for 28 years, his music career stretches back even further, taking him from playing with Robin Hood and the Merry Men at 1960's apparently very groovy Tyler Rose Festival Parade (see above), to opening for Jimmy Buffett, to jamming with ZZ Top.
