Her Country

01 Her Country

I had my first request to post a song and I’m nothing if not agreeable. The song is Her Country from the CD of the same name. On this recording from 2003, I got sing and play with The Skeletons of Springfield, MO — Lou Whitney, D. Clinton Thompson, Bobby Lloyd Hicks and Joe Terry. These guys are legendary — Donny Thompson is hands-down the best guitar player in the known universe and Lou is an exceptional wit and producer. ( That’s just scratching the surface of the whole Skeleton’s phenomenon, check them out here. ) The album consists of songs I co-wrote with Michael Feldman (see earlier post!) and, oddly enough, the request seems to have come from him. Listen to Donny tear into a meaty solo one and enjoy this tale of feminine sovereignty — we men know it’s their world and we must walk lightly through it!

      Thank you my friend… Dylan is the guy in my book and I name check him in a future post.

        Yeah, one of my favorite “albums” of his was the one he tried to produce as a crappy one on purpose – “Self Portrait” – and I still recall wearing out the grooves from the songs on that fine piece of vinyl even. Damn, we’re OLD !!! My favorite song, though, among the endless possibilities is still probably – “Positively 4th Street”! Earlier gems like “Blowing in the Wind”, “Tambourine Man”, and “Don’t Think Twice” are still a jingle-jangling in my brain, as well. Dylan was also intertwined with The Band and “The Weight” if my memory serves me correctly – another one of those definitive acoustic songs of all time, as well. Funny how it wasn’t even a big hit at the time. I could go on, but I won’t.
