Chart compiled by listeners voting
on the songs they hear on Radio Dupree

Once again the usual suspects appear on the Radio Dupree chart as-voted-by-the listeners:
Our Album of The Month; Valleys Of Neptune from Jimi Hendrix, pops up once with that old familiar chestnut Red House.
We were a bit surprised to find that a couple of tracks from that featured album got thumbs down, as we were under the apparent false notion that everybody likes Jimi. At least among our listeners.

The Zappa quotent on the chart this month is a track from Philly '76 landing at 9 + the Zappa-related GTO's at 5.
But can you spot the Steely Dan-related track?
No, it's not as easy as Fagen at 7 or Becker at 15. We're thinking about Floater from Rudder at 10. The New York band has four members, one of them being Steely Dan drummer Keith Carlock.

The only other name on the chart that might have you wondering is The Human Instinct at 2. Answer: A New Zealand band that's been around since the late 60's.

Oh. And David Bowie manages two songs in the short but sweet chart for May 2010.
