In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

The Allman Brothers - Pony Boy

Way back when, the Allman Brothers came out with the "Brothers and Sisters" album. Tucked away in one of the corners was the following song. It never had the "hit" qualities, but sometimes people don't really understand there's magic in the dobro; gentle tones, rattling notes as the bottleneck coaxes the strings, and the lure of the South to pull you away.

  1. Been awhile since I heard that one.

    1. It was released about the time I graduated high school. At that time, the disco era was starting, and the ruination of good music was started.

  2. I always liked that one.
    But I always was a "listen to the whole album" guy.

    1. Me too. The only drawback was finding the rest of the album was bad, and the money spent to listen to one song seemed wasted.

  3. Back in my day! Little surprizes like that are lost on the current generation with their single download of individual songs on iTunes... we had to buy an entire vinyl album and WE LIKED IT! :) How else can you find these treasures? There is very little music I can listen to that originates in the last 20 years.

    1. I think the work of many artists is lost these days. Gems of songs, probably not hits, are never heard, and could find many appreciative listeners.
