Listening

My favourite song of the moment is A love that will never grow old. It's by Emmylou Harris. I've played it three times today.

It's beautiful.

Do you have any Patty Griffin (friend and colleague of Ms. Emmylou)?

If not, you must rush out and buy one of her albums immediately.

It's such a gorgeous song. Destined to played at many an aging Mary's wedding ceremony.

Hmmm, there's an idea....

Brian - I don't. I'll try and get hold of something! Care to suggest one?

Enda - It's a very fabulous idea!

Emmylou Harris is one of my favorites, too.

I never paid her any attention before Brokeback Mountain. I will, now, though.

Minge, Her album 1,000 Kisses is probably a good place to start. Rain, Be Careful, Tomorrow Night and Mil Besos are the stand out tracks.

The Living with Ghosts album is her acoustic demo, its her debut and has a bit of a rougher edge to it. Her amazing voice is the highlight.

Flaming Red is more produced with a full band. It's slicker and a little more eclectic in its musical styling.

A Kiss in time is a live album with covers from all the others. It's more for the serious fan I think.

There ya go, more than you need to know.

You can hear streaming samples at PattyGriffin.com.
