Sometimes the song in my head doesn’t let me down.

In the seventies the three greatest voices in country music were Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton, in any order you like. They all worked together often and any time you get two or more of them on a recording it’s gonna be a keeper. This morning I woke up with this song stuck in my head for – as usual – no apparent reason. I must have an interesting dream life.

Haven’t heard it or even thought about it since I don’t know when, but I remember loving it. YouTube to the rescue, of course. I’d forgotten that the arrangement is such old-fashioned Bluegrass, and not a particularly outstanding example of old-fashioned Bluegrass at that. But then, it’s a very old-fashioned song. And hey, it’s Ronstadt and Harris.

    Like this?

    Seemed to fit fine with my taste for Black Sabbath and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
    And Marines and Hippies.

    I find perhaps even a synergy existent, that only sinister winged carrion consuming creatures seek to wreak. To more easily feed on of course.

To the stake with the heretic!
