A great version of the Townes Van Zandt track. Sounds great.
Pete Seeger at 90!! With Bruce Springsteen – such a rousing version of the Woody Guthrie song – with all the right verses!!
Ain’t no man living can stop me!
Back when I were a lad I bought the first Paul Simon album and loved it. I’m digging it out again today!
For 175 days I’ve been playing a new band or artist every day. Today I thought I’d return to Roy Harper and give his first album a play. It’s one I’ve been enjoying for fifty-two years!! Still as good as ever!
I like a bit of heavy, riff-based Rock. ZZ started as the Blue Boys back in the 60s. They know how to Rock.
When I was walking up my hill in the grey Autumn day – a bit of a contrast to yesterday’s heat and sunshine – I found myself singing this.
The Doors were one of my favourite bands.
It feels like Summer has gone. Where will we be? In the midst of a pandemic and winter on its way!
Kirsty was the daughter of Ewan MacColl. She came out of the New Wave scene. She brought a touch of humour to her songs. She was a very genuine person. She was tragically killed in a motorboat accident in 2000.
Today I play some Kirsty to cheer me up.
Bruce was the most successful of all the ‘new Bob Dylan’ singer-songwriters. His commercial success and popularity tend to mask the brilliance of some of his songwriting. Bruce is someone whose music contains real poetry and worth – he’s not just a pop star.
Today I’ll play the best of Bruce!

It took me a while to get to Jackson. I’m not a great lover of country rock and bands like the Eagles. But Jackson was a great wordsmith and I found myself really getting lost in his songs.
Today I’ll play some Jackson Browne:
