    You'd run out of room on the liner for all the titles.

    I think this is probably Uriah Heep's best. They were on the verge of their formula (which was a pretty great one), but just a little more experimental and free. Of course their live album from a little later just *flays* me.

    That's just plain weird. Reminds me of John Cage.

    "And some are wrapped in the linen so fine
    And some like a godling's scion
    But I was cradled on the twigs of pine
    Down a lonesome mountain line

    I lost my boyhood and found my wife
    A girl like a Salem clipper
    A woman as straight as a hunting knife
    With eyes as bright as the Dipper

    We cleared our camp where the buffalo feed
    Unheard of streams were our flagons
    And I sowed my sons like apple seed
    On the trail of the Western wagons

    They were right, tight boys, never sulky or slow
    A fruitful, goodly muster
    The eldest died at the Alamo
    And the youngest fell with Custer

    The letter that told it burned my hand
    I smiled and said, "So be it!"
    But I could not live when they fenced my land
    Oh it broke my heart just to see it

    I saddled the red, unbroken colt
    I rode him into the day there
    But he threw me down like a thunderbolt
    And he rolled on me as I lay there

    Now I lie in the heart of the fat, black soil
    Like the seed of a prairie thistle
    It has washed my bones in honey and oil
    And it's picked 'em as clean as a whistle

    And my youth returns, like the rains of Spring
    My sons, like the wild geese flying
    And I lie and I hear the meadowlark sing
    And there's much content in my dying

    Go play with the towns you have built out of blocks
    The towns where you may have bound me
    I'll sleep in the earth like a tired old fox
    And my buffalo have found me"

    This song (poem) says everything there is to say. If not in the lines then between them. It's all there.

    If the rest of the lyrics don't give away what's giving him his smile, the judge's name sure oughta.

    "When I woke up this morning, things were lookin' bad
    Seem like total silence was the only friend I had
    Bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down... and won
    And it was twelve o'clock before I realized
    That I was havin' no fun

    But fortunately I have the key to escape reality
    And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
    It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
    Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
    No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun

    Last time I checked my bankroll,
    It was gettin' thin
    Sometimes it seems like the bottom
    Is the only place I've been
    I Chased a rainbow down a one-way street dead end
    And all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen

    But fortunately I have the key to escape reality
    And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
    It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
    Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
    No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun

    Well, I sat down in my closet with all my overalls
    Tryin' to get away
    From all the ears inside my walls
    I dreamed the police heard
    Everything I thought... what then?
    Well I went to court
    And the judge's name was Hoffman

    Ah but fortunately I have the key to escape reality
    And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
    It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
    Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
    No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun
    Well done, hot dog bun, my sister's a nun"

    Another classic. Just bought a used copy (because I couldn't find new vinyl). Fine choice Floyd

    Don't have much Kinks material at my disposal, MacT. But that one album satisfies the itch more often than not.

    AXS TV is doing an evening of The Who. Classic Albums: Who's Next followed by the film, The Kids Are Alright. Rebroadcast at midnight.

    Picked this up at Guitar Center tonight (almost bought Albert King and Stevie Ray, but went with this instead).

    Now Playing: Various Artists, "Great Guitars at Sun"

    Nice remastering on this one. CD sounds great.

    I might squeeze another one in before bed. But pretty soon, I'll be
    looking like this:

    This artist needs no introduction. Her name speaks for itself. :bowdown:

    Did you hear John Hurt
    Play his Creole Belle?
    Or the Spanish Fandango
    That he loved so well?
    Did you love John Hurt?
    Did you shake his hand?
    And did you hear him
    Play his Candy Man?

    We picked some together
    John, Merle and me
    Like a talking to Casey
    And ol' Stagger Lee
    Don't ya bet your money
    If you can't afford to lose
    Man, you should've heard him
    Play them Monday Morning Blues

    Could hardly find
    My monday morning shoes

    :(
