About Last Love

Click: About Last Love

 

I always liked the track that doesn’t seem to fit on a CD but still deserves to be heard. That’s kind of how this one is. Featuring Joe Terry, the great keyboard player with the Skeletons and Phil Alvin. (By the way, if you’re going to have two first names, you could do worse than Phil and Alvin.) This one was planted on Her Country, a mostly rollicking CD I recorded in Springfield with The Skeletons, and this track is definitely an anomaly.  The lyrics from Michael Feldman triggered a melody that seems closer to Stephen Foster than anything you might hear nowadays. The harmonies are all me—sometimes the shortest distance between two points is from you to yourself. Everything else is Joe Terry and he handles with panache. Between the two of us, we’re kind of a poor man’s Nilsson! This funny business we call music somehow finds the gifted Joe baking muffins for a living. One more example of the imperfect meritocracy we live in.
