Hello Mr Pirate
Damn but you have good taste in music.
Question for you. I had that Kenny Kosek & Matt Glaser lp years ago but it went the way of all good things when I moved house & had to abandon ship along with some belongings.
There was a song that I thought was on it – but obviously not. So it must have been another lp – & fairly sure it was Glaser or Kosek or both, or someone remarkably similar – someone Newgrassy but with olde style roots (NOT Mark O’C).
The lyrics were near as damn it:
“They make their song like I make mine
Double shuffle, diesel whine
They make a dollar here & there
At bars and county fairs
So play the songs as best you can
“XXXXXX” & “say old man”
(can’t remember the remaining two lines)
It was all out of tempo, sung to an open string double stop violin backing, then segued into something else.
Then I could recapture my lost youth.
Best to you,
Hmm… I’m at a loss. But maybe in the vast arterial knowledge-base that is my readership, an answer can be found. It sounds like a cool tune! Leads? Anybody? It’s a treasure-hunt!
It’s called “B-fiddle medley”
(track #6 on Hasty Lonesome)
thanks irate pirate for sharing this gem.
Hahaha! Well it seems somebody wasn’t listening very closely…
Actually what it shows is that I don’t usually listen to lyrics…
I guess the moral of the story is that whatever you’re most desperately seeking, it’s probably right in front of you, especially when it’s a case of lost youth…
Thanks for the close attention. I’d still like to hear Breakfast Special someday
