 header-brocks-120.jpg This week I have on offer some really nice tunes, slightly leaning towards the country style. They are however very pleasing to the ear. There are many other titles of the same and varying music styles if you would like to check them out, but please enjoy my offerings. Thank you.

The video above is my favourite, just love this style, the sound, the beat almost everything about it. I first heard it made me want to listen to more of Tim McGraw.

 What is it with this sound, I cannot get enough. It seems strange to me, a Brit loving this American style of country music. Hope ye’ all enjoy it as much as me.

Another song that makes me see and think of nothing but sunshine. Being a guitar player I would so love to play this type of music, but it just does not suit a Brit. When I was gigging back in the 70’s-80’s I played in band that played country music, but it was what we musician types would call 3 chord wonders. Put you to sleep music, definitely if one played it.

I can never forget that when I see my dog covered in blue plumbago flowers, as all I think is he                                                   ‘has flowers in my fur’ …..    and as for another blog post – the wonderful Joan

My father introduced me to Joan Baez. My father, the radical trade union representative in his youth, who didn’t like the politics of Joan Baez when he was older. He hated her singing ‘We shall overcome’ but couldn’t resist the beauty of her voice.

So, when he was standing on his market stall, next to someone who sold records, he bought two Joan Baez LPs. I still have them. I can’t resist listening. ‘Once I had a sweetheart’ is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard.

Choose whichever Joanie one you want. I think Te Ador is a bit more cheerful.

Come on all you old hippies remember and tell us your story……
