When people talk about the power of music to evoke emotion, this is the song I hear. It's been fun picking the tunes this week, I hope you enjoyed.
From his January 30, 1990 MTV Unplugged show. You can find the whole thing on YouTube, and it's worth watching.
We're walking down the street in the French Quarter looking for some blues and a kid walks up and says, "Mister, I bet you ten dollars I can tell you where you got them shoes." I knew there was a catch but I couldn't see it, so I bet him five dollars. "You got them shoes on your feet," he says. My wife's laugh was worth every penny. It's Friday night, go out and find some music and maybe have a good laugh.
Melancholy. I think maybe that's the word she's looking for. We saw Kacey at the zoo a few years back. Her band wore classic western suits with little lights all over them. We're big fans.
Sir Reginald and Bernie wrote a lot of good songs together. This is one of my favorites, thanks to my sister who played the album over and over and over and over ad infinitum. We got to see Elton back around the turn of the century/millennium when he was broke and touring solo sans band to pay off his debts. My sister has seen him half a dozen times or so.
I saw Dickey Betts and Great Southern play at Colorado Sun Day 2 in old Mile High Stadium on June 26, 1977, damn near 55 years ago. Out of the seven acts that played that day, I'd rank them tied for second with Marshall Tucker, a short distance behind Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was a hell of a show.
Gonna be another hot one out there today, citizens. Have a cold drink and some cool jazz. Chill, baby, chill.
Thanks for having me this past week. It's been nice to be back for a bit. Hope ya'll enjoyed it.
Here is something to really knock your socks off. A real Sunday Morning downer. Probably couldn't play this one during the week, may have hit too hard.

Sure, you may know Harper Valley but Ms. Riley really starts to let it out on this later single.

Here is a tune I came across in the past few years that I really enjoyed. Hope you do too.
