Sunday again ... heck how time goes by, hardly one can blink. It's been a pretty calm week for me, some music has passed my ear, was a bit larger event earlier this week, perhaps Thetania going to write about, I only heard the last act and I was not especially impressed.
At this day (Sundays), we usually dusting up a classic tune here. So todays classic will be a fellow called Terry Reid (born 13 November 1949, Huntingdon, England), who is an English rock vocalist and guitarist. He has performed with high profile musicians, as a supporting act, a session musician, and sideman.
Todays tune "Dean" is taken from the album River, released 1973. Reid returned with a new contract with Atlantic Records and the album was produced by Yes's Eddie Offord, the album received favourable reviews, but failed commercially. Some say it's a long lost classic, a flawed but worthy near masterpiece, others a bewildering jumble of styles, country rock, Latin, jazz and slow acoustic blues.
