I saw you last night at Passim's in Harvard Square, also saw you at Stone Mpountain this past summer. I've been binge listening to all of your cd's since. Absolutely love Sinner's Prayer on Wishbone. So appropriate to our time today in this age of excess. Would love to see you re-release this as a single. Bet it would be a hit! You have an amazing ability to capture the "heartbreak of life".
Thank you Giovannina (what a lovely name). I often wish some of my songs could get another chance to be heard. I love that track, too. In fact, I have an instrumental only version of it - it sounds good even without the words, thanks to great playing by Charles Arthur, Rick Richards, Gurf Morlix, and the late Ian McLagan.
Yodeling is on its way back. I spent the evening last night at a back yard party in OKC with the High Mountain Cowboys. Check out Marty Kosel.Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/19/2017 Next question
Hi Slaid. It was great seeing you at Club Passim the other night. Thanks again for playing my second-choice special request - Brother's Keeper. Great song. I especially love the use of the past tense "slew" in the chorus - not a word heard often in contemporary music. Also, despite the reference to fratricide, nobody ends up dead, no one's body is twisting in the wind or sprawled on a race track lifeless as a doll. And certainly no one gets simultaneously drowned and crushed under a log jam! In other words, it's one of your more light hearted songs.
Brian and I are loving the new album!
See you next time you're in Boston.
