Re: Farewell to Barbara Cruickshank (aka Babz)

I remember Barbara from the LC chatroom. She was always friendly, humorous and knowledgeable. May she rest in peace.

Always Drive a Cadillac. The Everly Brothers.

A little known song from the Everly Brothers. The lyrics and arrangement are marvellous.

Re: Black Rose of Texas - Dave Alvin

Thanks for the links, Kush. I am sure that it will not surprise you that I have already seen them. I really enjoy listening to his music. I hope you manage to get to his concert. Maybe he will let slip if he is going to be in the UK at any time in the near future.

Re: WOMAD 2018

Hello Diane, Things are certainly quieter here nowadays. I suppose that it is only to be expected in some ways. A lot of the regular posters no longer contribute. I always enjoy reading this section though. It is a shame that Stephen has stopped posting but I always enjoy reading what people have to...

Re: Ed Bruce - The Devil Inside

Hello Kush, That was very funny. I don't know how they both managed to keep a straight face during the exchange. I suspect it may have been edited as both of them at times look as if they are doing their best not to burst out laughing. It reminds me of some of the 'Pink Panther' films with Peter Sel...

Re: Ed Bruce - The Devil Inside

Hello Kush, Texas Homecare, according to Wikipedia, was a Do It Yourself company which operated in the United Kingdom in the last quarter of the twentieth century. I cannot remember seeing the advert as I have limited ambitions in that area! Your story about the 'Japanese' restaurant made me laugh. ...

Re: Ed Bruce - The Devil Inside

Hello again Kush,

In the course of my search I also found an advertisement from the eighties which I had never seen. It uses the same tune and there is some interesting information attached too.

Re: Ed Bruce - The Devil Inside

Hello Kush, Yes, I did mention him some years ago. I had heard this song in the eighties but could not remember much about it or even who performed it other than that I enjoyed listening to it. It was a nice surprise to eventually track it down. I have enjoyed listening to your Blaze Foley and Sturg...

Ed Bruce - The Devil Inside

A little known song of an underrated country and western singer. In some ways it reminds me a little of Mr.Cohen.

Re: Turtles all the Way Down - Sturgill Simpson

Hello Kush,

I have been meaning to reply to this post of yours for a while and I have finally got round to doing so. I had never heard of Sturgill Simpson before but I really enjoyed his songs. The live clip was exceptional. Thanks for bringing him to notice.

Bon soir, Monsieur Viscount. Il me semble that vous êtes le language police ici.

Nice to see a balanced response, Vicomte, or would you rather be addressed as 'Viscount' in future as you now seem to prefer prefer English?
