Friday's Random Ten (on the road edition)

in case anyone might have been concerned about the gloomy nature of my postings lately all i can say is that before i posted the second emmylou i had just found out that by the time my daughter arrives from tucson and medschool for the long weekend, i will be long gone, again.

it's another symptom of that backwards loaded life i was noticing. my kids are all growing into the self-assured, talented, and independant adults i wanted them to be and when i finally slow down the being gone part of my life, it's time for them to leave.

ah, well, just an old guitar slinger arguing with "is" again. one of the gigs i have lined up over the weekend is a small (4 piece) combo that will be playing in a luxury suite at the arena right before the game. i don't have it all that tough.


Goodnight Irene - - Leadbelly
Sailor's Grave on the Prarie - - Leo Kottke
Jordan Am a Hard Road - - Merle Travis
Muddy Water - - Bessie Smith
Someday Soon - - Ian Tyson

MB, best of times in Vegas. One of the regrets of my life is that Emmylou got the hell out of Birmingham before I got a chance to meet her. I absolutely fell in love with her in the late 70's and will always pine for her.
