Spirituals & Folk Songs

Our roadie didn’t start recording on time, so lil’ sis lost most of her solo lines.  Not to mention that she’s a floating head above a sea of stands from that angle…

Like many, I took a renewed interest in this immortal Paul Simon song when Disturbed released its cover.

Back in ’68-’69, Mary Hopkin’s version of this song—produced by Paul McCartney—was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (Grammy) and reached #2 on the charts, just below Hey Jude. Those were the days, my friend.

Written by John Denver for his wife Annie during their separation and, ultimately, divorce.  May our hardest journeys bring out our best.

A classic by Hedy West.
