Then I set the needle down on track three on aspect two, San Francisco is a Lonely City. It’s a breakup story of a small city man who moved to the Bay Space along with his love, solely to lose her to the massive metropolis nightlife and “her new mates (who) assume I cramp her fashion.”
So he will get again on the Greyhound bus to the place he got here from, broken-hearted. It has the same lyric and really feel to By The Time I Get to Phoenix, a wonderful vocal from the fabulous Charlie Wealthy, and a few of the most beautiful weeping metal guitar you’ll ever hear in your life.
Did I say metal guitar? Perhaps it’s time to play Reside on the Palomino, a 1969 album by metal guitar legend Pink Rhodes along with his band The Detours. It has an exquisite model of the Tammy Wynette hit Divorce, sung by a man (sadly the document is brief on credit).
The album is on a tiny label (Comfortable Tiger) and my copy is completely hacked — there’s snaps, crackles and pops in all places. However that provides it a novel patina, as they are saying within the vintage world.
Reconnecting with Reside on the Palomino is without doubt one of the bizarre advantages of the present disaster. Lord is aware of what number of LPs and CDs I’ve — most likely 4,000 to five,000. Ought to take awhile to work my means via all of them.
