Have you ever felt stuck in one place? Trapped by your situation, unable to move forward? I used to have a recurring dream were I could only move a snail’s pace – literally crawling along the pavement. ‘Cement Shoes’ is the first single from the new album, Folk Dope (which you’ll be hearing a lot about!)
All's Well That Ends (Oh Well)
‘Another Side Of Bob Dylan’ has had a LOT of plays in my house over the years. This song would not exist were it not for tracks like ‘Ramona’ and ‘Ballad in Plain D’ … And with a little bit of accordion and piano this acoustic little song sound really nice.
I’m a bit old fashioned so it’s no surprise that the long-awaited Folk Dope album will be release on vinyl. Yes it includes a digital download, but for the real collectors out there, I hope you will appreciate it an analogue format!
This is great track to listen to if you’ve had a bad day at work. Next time you feel stressed rather than physically assaulting your employer try watching this video instead. Who’d have thought Simon & Garfunkel could have penned such an angst-ridden song!
Back In The 1960s
…there was an acid-folk duo from Edinburgh called the Incredible String Band. They wrote a couple of really brilliant albums which I’m heavily influenced by. I especially enjoy the singer’s unusal lilting style of singing. I always like to try vocal acrobatics and this track has plenty of that!
