Still far and away the best English football anthem....and I'm not a supporter of Liverpool F.C.

RIP Gerry Marsden!

No disrespect intended, (at all) but Gerry and the Pacemakers would be a perfect name for a geriatric, Baby Boomer rock band with cardiac issues.🤥

But, on the subject of 78 year-old Liverpudlians, you rockers should check out Paul McCartney's new album, McCartney III, which was released on December 18, 2020.

Paul wrote and recorded these songs and instrumentals by himself last year-- guitars, drums, keyboards, vocals, etc.-- at age 78!  Great piece of work.  When did he learn to play the drums so well?

It's a triumph of the human spirit, and flesh, by an extraordinarily talented septuagenarian rocker struggling with anxiety about foxes scaring his chickens and lambs, aging, losing his faculties and romantic partner(s.)

Highly recommended, especially for the over 60 crowd.

I always felt 1966 was at the edge of an abyss. this is the first recording of Warren Zevon  at 19 with Violet Santangelo. Zevon's Father incidentally was a bookie for LA mobster Mickey Cohen and best man at his first wedding.

Then a bay area band, The Syndicate of Sound.

“You went out on me so other girls did it too”

Great cover of a great song...

Kirk,

       To me, it sounds like these compositions were very similar, stylistically, to what Bob Dylan and the Beatles had recorded a year earlier, in 1965--  the Highway 61 Revisited album,  (e.g., From a Buick 6) and Ticket to Ride.

       Do you know if Zevon was playing an Epiphone Casino (above?)

Ticket to Ride?, Highway 61?  I see the Zevon song as being sort of folky, which there was definitely a merging going on. There were different motifs emerging between the "a'  and "b" or bridge parts of the song as in the Zevon song. I have no idea if Zevon even played the guitar on the track, much less if it was an epiphone casino.

With "Hey little girl,to me a little more rock than folk. But it does have the electric 12 string. i've always liked that sound , as I have 2 acoustic Martins 12's and one electric 12 string.

Cliff I confess I'm a bit of a snob. Though I like the Dead Boys. I would choose the clean , crisp sound  for the heavy strumming lead in"Hey Little girl" rather than the dirty sound  the Dead Boys choose, because I could hear my chops better, and define the rhythm better. Obviously just a different creative choice.

Strong Byrds influence.

Biden’s Austerity Zealotry Helped Cut The Stimulus Bill In Half

If progressive advocacy groups, activists and lawmakers do not call out and confront austerity politics head on, it is going to be a painful four years. They’ve been warned about Biden’s ideology for a long time — the stimulus bill is the biggest warning of all. 

Joe Biden wants to set aside deficit concerns to invest in ailing U.S. economy
