I’m back in Aiken for a few days and enjoying some downtime. Seeing Alicia, playing with the dogs, puttzing around the house, garage, and yard, it’s nice to take a break.
Tomorrow, Adeline will be visiting (OK, so is Elissa and Selby) and then its back to the lowcountry for another week.
As I putzed, my playlist came upon a Michael Hedges song. Unless you were listening to the Windham Hill label during the 1980’s, you might never have heard of Michael Hedges. A week or two ago, Kurt Harden wrote a post about Windham Hill and Will Ackerman. Included in that post is an acknowledgment of Michael’s virtuosity. Hedges, in my opinion, was one of the most innovative guitarists of the last 100 years.
One of my readers, my Aunt Barbara, (from the birth side of my adoption) tells me that she loves my blog, but doesn’t enjoy the music I post. That makes sense because she is a few years older than me and we tend to enjoy the music we listened to during our teen years and early 20’s.
This is a live version of a song from Hedge’s first album, Breakfast in The Field. It is called The Happy Couple and is dedicated to Barbara and Paul, a happy couple indeed. It might not be Perry Como, but you can’t argue that it isn’t pretty.
