"Yeah, but it's largely a  singer/songwriter genre heavily influenced by country music, so it's not terribly surprising to me that the artists are overwhelmingly white.  I know from the shows that I go to that the fan base is…"

Jack Williams replied to David Johnson's discussion 'Song(s) you're embarrassed to admit you really liked'
"Agreed.  That's one of my favorite songs from when I listened to top forty radio as a kid in the '70s.  I'm thinking that one was around '72.   King Harvestwas a one hit wonder for sure, but a great hit it was."

Hi Jack,

That's great, very many thanks. I think I'm going to be busy. Richard Thompson and Emmylou/Rodney on the same bill would have been a tremendous show.

All the best.

Lyndon

Hi Jack,

Thanks very much for your recommendation of where to go in NYC. ND took down my post as I had put it in the wrong section (my fault) so it's now in the forum bit. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep your comment so have lost the name of the place, Paddy's? If you have a minute to resend, I'd be most grateful.

Isn't it a coincidence that we've met several times when you've been over here under, I assume your English name, Richard Thompson? Your show last February in your power trio was superb and "Electric" is definitely among my top ten albums of 2013. Good to see Teddy doing so well too.

Best wishes,

Lyndon
