  1. Bill March of the Cleveland based band Beau Coup has posted what looks to be a band photo featuring Wally. Will see what's brewing...
  2. Leon Redbone

    Had the good fortune to see him perform at Cantrell's in Nashville circa 1984. Truly an old soul ..
  3. Paul McCartney—playlists

    I'm with Kirk. Although I am a Lennonist, I do like some of Paul's work, just not the middle-of-the-road/made for the masses schlock.

    Corinna's Going a-Maying Robert Herrick, 1591 - 1674 Get up, get up for shame! The blooming morn Upon her wings presents the god unshorn. See how Aurora throws her fair Fresh-quilted colours through the air: Get up, sweet slug-a-bed, and see The dew bespangling herb and tree! Each flower has wept and bow'd toward the east Above an hour since, yet you not drest; Nay! not so much as out of bed? When all the birds have matins said And sung their thankful hymns, 'tis sin, Nay, profanation, to keep in, Whereas a thousand virgins on this day Spring sooner than the lark, to fetch in May. Rise and put on your foliage, and be seen To come forth, like the spring-time, fresh and green, And sweet as Flora. Take no care For jewels for your gown or hair: Fear not; the leaves will strew Gems in abundance upon you: Besides, the childhood of the day has kept, Against you come, some orient pearls unwept. Come, and receive them while the light Hangs on the dew-locks of the night: And Titan on the eastern hill Retires himself, or else stands still Till you come forth! Wash, dress, be brief in praying: Few beads are best when once we go a-Maying. Come, my Corinna, come; and coming, mark How each field turns a street, each street a park, Made green and trimm'd with trees! see how Devotion gives each house a bough Or branch! each porch, each door, ere this, An ark, a tabernacle is, Made up of white-thorn neatly interwove, As if here were those cooler shades of love. Can such delights be in the street And open fields, and we not see 't? Come, we'll abroad: and let 's obey The proclamation made for May, And sin no more, as we have done, by staying; But, my Corinna, come, let 's go a-Maying. There 's not a budding boy or girl this day But is got up and gone to bring in May. A deal of youth ere this is come Back, and with white-thorn laden home. Some have despatch'd their cakes and cream, Before that we have left to dream: And some have wept and woo'd, and plighted troth, And chose their priest, ere we can cast off sloth: Many a green-gown has been given, Many a kiss, both odd and even: Many a glance, too, has been sent From out the eye, love's firmament: Many a jest told of the keys betraying This night, and locks pick'd: yet we're not a-Maying! Come, let us go, while we are in our prime, And take the harmless folly of the time! We shall grow old apace, and die Before we know our liberty. Our life is short, and our days run As fast away as does the sun. And, as a vapour or a drop of rain, Once lost, can ne'er be found again, So when or you or I are made A fable, song, or fleeting shade, All love, all liking, all delight Lies drown'd with us in endless night. Then, while time serves, and we are but decaying, Come, my Corinna, come, let's go a-Maying

    I sat belonely down a tree Humbled fat and small... JWL 1964

    I do greatly enjoy Kirk's precise, mini one line poems. Like a great haiku, Kirk's poetry is brilliant, succinct and in this case, a bit scary. Bravo, Kirk! Carry on, gentlemen...

    Who sales Yale is the literary authority of America? As a proud graduate with a degree in writing from that sweetest member of the Honeysuckle League as well as home to both the Agrarian and Fugitive literary movements, I submit that although James' poetry is avant garde in nature, it is a national treasure. Actually, two national treasures... America and Panama may go to war over claim to James and his words. http://libdig13.library.vanderbilt.edu/specialcollections/vuhistory/fugitives_agrarians.php

  12. Thanks for the clarification, Bernie!!! Excited to see this exhibit! Yes, it is very cool to see EC's name on the exhibition label. Thank goodness Met, one of the best museums in the country, sees fit to include our hero. Maybe the RRHOF could learn a thing or two from this prestigious institution.
  13. Happy Easter

    Happy Easter and Passover to my EC.com family!!!
  14. That famous white guitar is in a new exhibit at the Met. The Melody Maker is in good company.
