Quotation of the day: Earl Wilson -- A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking.
This may be difficult to believe, but i've actually been productive today (shock, horror).
This week's song was "Tobacco Road," which was written by John D. Loudermilk, but which was a top ten hit for The Nashville Teens in 1964 (long before i was born, of course!) (ahem...). Rory never officially recorded it, but sometimes, in concert, he would interpolate it into his own song, "Seems To Me." So what i have just done, is, i put together a .zip file of four versions of the song: Loudermilk's original, The Nashville Teens' version, plus two (bootleg) versions of Rory's Seems To Me" -- one with, and one without the "Tobacco Road" interpolation. If you're at all interested, you can download the file (it's 19 MB) here: http://www.mediafire.com/?gf8cn747c0sps4z
Normally, i wouldn't have the time to organise something so relatively complicated (especially as i had misfiled one of the CDs i needed and it took me a while to find it).
Otherwise, today's playlist has been:
Kathy Mattea, "Roses"
Peter Hammill, "In A Foreign Town"
Rush, "Retrospective II" (sorry, Helen!)
And i'm just about to watch yet another episode of "Between The Lines" -- love that program so much...
More later, i expect
