21st Century Easy Listening
Last July I posted a couple of Richard Hawley songs I had from compilations and owned up to not knowing much about him and not really seeing what all the fuss was about. A barrage of commenters took me to task and urged me to give him a good listening to.
They were right and I was wrong.
I've gotten hold of a copy of Coles Corner and what a terrific record it is.
I can hear touches of Orbison and Sinatra in there - easy listening for the 21st Century indeed.
Praise the Lord, I've seen the light!
Richard Hawley - Darlin' Wait For Me

Good news. Hawley is class.ReplyDelete
What's that thing about if you can't say owt positive say nowt? To be honest I struggle with him yet my wife loves his basso profundo, vibrato voice. Me, I just can't pin down my antipathy. He lives in the same school catchment as do my kids and I see him from time to time and yet there are not enough vibes to make me sign up to his cause.ReplyDelete
