Bill said, “The letter Z was difficult, but Bob Dylan’s extensive catalogue came through. There are many polished versions by other singers, but his stripped down acoustic version works well with the lyrics.”
Bill said, “David Allen Coe captured the essence of the 70’s outlaw period with this 1975 hit. The question is: Was it the greatest country song?“
Bill said, “I spent hours trying to find a good “X” song…with no success. So, here’s a good Texas swing song with “EX” in the title. Besides, George Straight deserves to be on the list!”
“All My Ex’s Live in Texas”
*Bill is in Canada again this week. He will catch up on all comments this weekend,
just before his he does his final “Reflection” post. Thanks for understanding!
Bill said, “This song is really about an elderly couple that had a tragic ending. However, it has a rebellious meaning for us. It’s our road trip song.”
Bill said, “Chet had a style that was easy going. He focused on playing each note with perfection and feeling. It was never a contest to show off, or play fast, or try to impress others.”
Bill said, “Joe Cocker was a true professional. His vocals and the arrangements of his songs were amazing. It is especially nice to hear a live recording that has the quality of a studio recording.”
*NOTE: Bill has caught up on commenting after a very long week on the road.
