Monday's Long Song
A bit late to the party but I thought I should join in with the fun.
Not for me a lengthy dance re-mix , hippity hop, prog rock or a slice of psychedelia. No, you wont be surprised that I am offering up some Americana today.
I'm not quite sure as to the ground rules and what does and does not constitute a long song. I don't know whether 8 minutes 20 seconds qualifies as a long song but in my defense it is pretty long for a country number. Plus it is a belter.
I must confess to being somewhat lazy given that I have only gone as far back as last Thursday when this song got a mention on my Warren Zevon post along with a video of the original
From his 2005 album Delirium Tremolos here is the grizzled but great Ray Wylie Hubbard with his cover of James McMurtry's grizzled but great Choctaw Bingo. presumably Mr McMurtry approved given that he features on guitar.
