Blind Willie McTell
I woke up one night last week whilst on holiday thinking I need to post some Blind Willie McTell on the old blog.
Sad I know but once it was in my head it required to be actioned.
I've got a splendid 4 disc set The Classic Years 1927 -1940. I was just going to purchase a one CD Best of but those thoughtful people at Red Lick quite rightly pointed out the error of my ways and steered me to the box set. Fine, fine people -a true public service.
I was also trying , unsuccessfully to find the Bob Dylan track in Blind Willie's honour. However, even better here is the stonking version from the Dream Syndicate, fronted by the legend that is Steve Wynn,from Rough Trade Country 1
Blind Willie McTell - Let Me Play With Yo' Yo-yo
Blind Willie McTell - Lay Some Flowers on my Grave
