    Looking forward to it!

    I read from two unknown sources that Long May You Run is a tribute to a 1948 Buick hearse that Neil and his band used to get to gigs. Arrgh, and I thought it was about a person or people.

    Not a microphone to be seen, I guess a lip synced performance was considered normal once upon a time. And for years later too. At least there was a flash of pyrotechnics at the end!

    I saw Mr Lewis perform this song live at the Seattle Opera House. Perhaps after doing the same song for decades some of the shine may wear off. He wasn't glad to be there.

    Favorite new (well to me) song by an intriguing new artist.
    George has a netflix Bio out. For once they play entire songs! interspersed by an interview where he comes across as, well.. extremely likeable. I enjoyed his stage presence as well. a straight forward presentation that allows sincerity to take the fore.
    nor is he without humor



    Budapest
    George Ezra
    My house in Budapest
    My hidden treasure chest
    Golden grand piano
    My beautiful Castillo
    You
    You
    I'd leave it all
    My acres of a land
    I have achieved
    It may be hard for you to
    Stop and believe
    But for you
    You
    I'd Leave it all
    Give me one good reason
    Why I should never make a change
    And baby if you hold me
    Then all of this will go away
    My many artifacts
    The list goes on
    If you just say the words
    I'll up and run
    Oh, to you
    You
    I'd leave it all
    Give me one good reason
    Why I should never make a change
    And baby if you hold me
    Then all of this will go away
    Give me one good reason
    Why I should never make a change
    Baby if you hold me
    Then all of this will go away
    My friends and family
    They, don't understand
    They fear they'd lose so much
    If you take my hand
    But, for you
    You
    I'd lose it all
    Give me one good reason
    Why I should never make a change
    And baby if you hold me
    Then all of this will go away
    Give me one good reason
    Why I should never make a change
    And baby if you hold me
    Then all of this will go away
    My house in Budapest
    My hidden treasure chest
    Golden grand piano
    My beautiful castillo
    You
    You
    I'd leave it all

    Unable to categorize. Warning, unable to categorize, etc. He certainly has an expensive taste in guitars. The first video, Budapest is sort of happy go lucky, with plenty of bass. And the second one too. Category? Soitenly a breath of fresh air!

    With one sixth of our population the Brits certainly hold their own musically. I don't understand the vive le difference between there and here. Taste is a little different there, some of their material is instantly understood on our side of the ocean and vice versa.

    I find this tune to be a haunting one.
    A man with artistic sensibilities and one who loves children
    Yet so flawed that those closest to him had to put him down.


    BTW, WHAT a duet!!



    Spanish Johnny
    Emmylou Harris
    Those other years, the dusty years
    We drove the big hers through
    I tried to forget the miles we rode
    And Spanish Johnny too
    He'd sit beside a water ditch
    When all this herd was in
    And he'd never harm a child
    But sing to his mandolin.
    The old talk, the old ways,
    And the dealin' of our game
    But Spanish Johnny never spoke,
    But sing a song of Spain
    And his talk with men was vicious talk
    When he was drunk on gin
    Ah, but those were golden things
    He said to his mandolin.
    We had to stand, we tried to judge,
    We had to stop him then
    For the hand so gentle to a child
    Had killed so many men
    He died a hard death long ago
    before the road come in
    And the night before he swung
    He sung to his mandolin.
    Well, we carried him out in the mornin' sun
    A man that done no good
    And we lowered him down in the cold clay
    Stuck in a cross of wood
    And a letter we wrote to his kinfolk
    To tell them where he'd been
    And we shipped it out to Mexico,
    Along with his mandolin...

    My browser has problems with HTML5 and H.264. Some vids from Youtube aren't supported. So I miss out on about 1 in 6 music videos. Unfortunately this is one of them. But I'm hearing it from Youtube now, I just chose a different version. Waylon Jennings is sure putting his all into this one.

    Interesting, the title track from this LP is a song you didn't like.

    "Evangeline," she sang it with The Band. Don't know if she recorded it with just her voice or not.
