The Best of The Week

"Johnny Rivers Rocks the Folk" was a 1965 album by Rock N Roll singer Johnny Rivers, consisting of him playing live versions of folk songs in a Rock n Roll style. At the time he released the album, he had been releasing singles and albums for around eight years, and had a #2 single the previous year with a cover of Memphis, originally by Chuck Berry.

The album consists of both traditional folk songs, dating to the 1800s, and folk songs of the 1950s and 1960s, including two Bob Dylan covers.

  1. Tom Dooley (Traditional)
  2. Long Time Man (Traditional)
  3. Michael (Row the Boat Ashore) (Traditional)
  4. Blowin' in the Wind (Bob Dylan)
  5. Green, Green (The New Christy Minstrels)
  6. Where Have All The Flowers Gone (Pete Seeger)
  7. If I Had a Hammer (Pete Seeger and Lee Hays)
  8. Tall Oak Tree (Dorsey Burnette)
  9. Catch the Wind (Donovan)
  10. 500 Miles (Hedy West)
  11. Mr. Tambourine Man (Bob Dylan)

i like to listen to music when i drive any distance. my car, a 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has a pretty good factory audio, and i have Apple Music. That software platform is pretty good and because i recent bought some Julien Baker and Flock of Dimes and wanted to listen to the CD i'd just bought, their algorythm decided that Dave loves to listen to women singer/songwriters with decent production values.  So once the album finished it fed me an array of women who front bands.  Which to be fair was…

As the pieces
Fall into place
My mind wanders often
I find myself smirking
The culmination of
Delicious plans
Coming together
Hungry anticipation
My mind wanders
I see you
Images flood my mind
Pulse quickens
Beauty causing
Breath to catch
The smirk returns
Letters found and returned
Dead drops and laptops
Mysterious packages
More pieces placed
The grin reaches my eyes
Private smirks beneath
Masks and mundane
