It's amazing how much good music comes from the Delta. Excellent tune, Paul.
It just occurred to me recently that you Paul , have the most similar taste to my life-long pal @Budgie114 ......CRAZY about The Stones, CRAZY about Dylan...Drive By Truckers, Levon Helm, country-blues, alternative country, Americana, country rock etc etc..you know where I'm going ( not sure about Bobbie here though...never asked him!) Trouble is, he seems to have given up on TIMJ....shame.
@debutch annnnnnd I liked Budgie with Adam Faith!
Oh, you used to watch THAT??....Good man!
@debutch yep that is deffo my home base right there. And also southern soul, fifties r'n'b, Texas swing, West African music, Irish ballads, rockabilly, surf, punk, '60's garage, classic glam rock and Frank Sinatra.
One of my all time favourites.
@adammarshall actually it's always seemed to me a very divisive song. People (like me and say, Greil Marcus) get a little bit messianic about it and then there are those who detest it (My ex-wife, f'instance).
Well, I have to admit. That's some pretty impressive diverse music there.
oh, the Budgie theme tune! =D I haven't heard that for about 40 years yet I still know all the words!!
Love this clip.
One of the greatest lyrics ever.
@BertrandRustles and the way she sings it, never rushes it, all coiled emotion.
@paulgdaly Yep. Desperate to give nothing away.
It's just one of those iconic toons that leaves ya' kinda speechless...
