Today I am playing Loudon Wainwright 3.
I first hear Loudon way back in 1970. Guru Maraji had an ashram in Finsbury Park near where I lived. All the new followers had to give up all their worldly possessions to join. They had a shop when they flogged it. I’d see people carrying stereos and piles of albums. It was a treasure trove. I bought a lot of great albums there!
One day they were playing that first Loudon album. I really liked the sound of it and bought it.
I’ve seen him live many times. I like the humour and subject matter. He deals with real issues.
I also like that Charlie Poole Project!!
So today I’m digging them out and digging them!
