I was actually famous in my last year of high school after I recited the entire song of Alice's Rstaurant ( including differing voices and accents when required ) on the way home from a weekend school

Can't go wrong with these two for a start                Cheers,   Keith    

Just revisiting this one, Dirt Farmer by Levon Helm. I picked this one up a few years ago at a music sale, think I might have posted something about it before, but can't quite remember when that was.

Don’t forget the first people love a bit of Country and Western.


That’s recorded with Jon Langford 

Do you know The Mekons and The Waco Brothers

Seriously good record

Dave Rawlings and Gillian Rawlings are all over it

How cool do they look

Too late now but in my next life I’m gonna be a country music singer

And dress like this

Just hope it’s a long time coming?

Hopeless romantic

Just put up a heap of female country music 

And then shuffled them

Lots of ? and weeping? to go with a few beers

Looked in the fridge and only one left

Ill be doubled sad in a few hours

amongst others

What the yodelling? needs practice ?


The concert was great, though I have to revisit my guitar playing after listening to Arlo's Don't Think Twice It's Alright.


I didn't mind the banter, Arlo's sense of humour always cracks me up and it's a good foil to Pete's seriousness


I'll check out the other one ?

A new record by David Bromberg 

His second record from all those decades ago remains one of my favourite records

One of America’s finest musicians

Listening on Tidal

Seriously good record 

About the 10th listen now

I like the David Bromberg records from this century after he started recording again

But this is something else 

His voice is deeper now with age layered on to it

The musicians are all great players

 singing and playing as if they were mucking about amongst friends with an infectious sense of fun and inclusion for the person listening 

Cant be rehearsed 

The sheer joy of playing so to speak

This song alone is worth the yearly price of Tidal

Gillian Welch’s perfect vocal and Dave’s sublime guitar

Country music heaven

In country music you are ever only a hop step and jump away from religion

Like this acapella sing song Standing in the Need Of Prayer 

On the other hand there’s this little ode to 

Mary Jane

Tidaling the song Goodnight Irene Goodnight Irene

Over a hundred as it turns out

Which brought me to this

Had it on Record but never on CD 

Very distinct cover

Tie dye shirts ?

Very funny

At some point I must have sold it because it’s nowhere to found 

Must have heard it hundreds of times

Great musician especially mouth organ

Good friend with Bob in the 60’s and possibly played bass on Bringing It All Back Home
