To Find, To Be




















Spun Terry Reid's River ('73) last night. Good decision, as it remains a wonderful album from start to finish, airy and funky. Strange though that the rest of Reid's output, the odd song notwithstanding, leaves me rather cold.

In search of a good read? Musician Peter Case peels back some layers of the onion and proves in a personal memoir that he's a true member of the Incredible Stringband appreciation society. Fun fact: even Bobby D. dug their October Song. "I met a man whose name was Time, and he said, I must be goin'..."
