Distraction....

...... I've spent the last few hours going through my gigantic collection of old music cassette tapes that are currently taking up residence in my maple gun cabinet here in the blogroom...... collected from the years 1986 onwards, it is quite a varied collection.....

.... everything from Bread (WTF was I thinking?) to Dr. Hook, Don Williams, AC/DC, and Pink Floyd....

.... so in a vain attempt at inspiration tonight, I tossed a few choice cassettes into the stereo and sat back to listen.......

.... I think that my ears are bleeding..... I can feel wetness, but I am afraid to actually go and check in the mirror......

... needless to say, I did find an old favorite by Don Williams just a few minutes ago.... and it seemed to make the bleeding subside.... or at least clot

.... so, without further commentary, I give you "Good Ole Boys Like Me", by Don Williams......

.... and while I absolutely love the lyrics, it does appear that Mr. Williams may have studied 'entertainment' at the Mt. Rushmore school of Song Singing..... and judging by this video, I suspect that he was an A-student....

..... still, though, I do love the song..... and it certainly beats the hell out of 'Bread'..... if I never hear "Baby I'm A Want You" again, it'll be too damned soon.......

You can only purchase music by Bread through the Time-Warner collection of Greatest Wuss Rock, as seen on 3:15 AM Infomercials.

That is my favorite song he does. I got to see him in concert twice and the singing/stage appearance is still the same.

Must be something in the atmosphere, I've been doing the same. A milk crate full of cassettes stacked neatly, not just dumped in. Big brother's influence: Kansas, Zepplin, Floyd, Robin Trower. Big sister's influence: Joe Jackson, David Wilcox, King Crimson. Lots of '80's stuff: Violent Femmes, Swimming Pool Cues, Connells, Tommy Conwell. Just random good and bad: Mike Cross, Quiet Riot, Pretenders, Anthrax, Jason and the scorchers, Nugent, John Prine, enough Skynerd to be embarassing, Concrete Blonde, BB King, James Taylor...
I do have Bread, but it's on Vinyl...
