My friend Gerard, who I have been lucky enough to become acquainted with through this blog, was nice enough to send me a list of “Rain” songs from his collection. Among those songs was Rain and Rails by a Dutch group called The Nits. Let’s listen…..
I had not heard of The Nits before seeing them in Gerard’s list but I have to say that I love their sound! I very much look forward to exploring more of their music…..thank you my brother for introducing me to The Nits!
I feel guilty making this Badfinger post when I don’t really have the time to do the song or the band justice. Everyone probably knows the incredible tragedies associated with the band so I will not repeat them in this post. Just thinking about it breaks my heart all over again. Maybe I will be up to saying more in a post later this week. Moving on….
Today’s long song post features Timeless, the last song on the second side of the band’s last album for Apple called Ass. The song was written by Pete Ham and he is featured on lead vocals and on an incredible lead guitar. Let’s listen…
To top things off today I have a live performance of the song from a 1974 concert in Vancouver, Canada. Good stuff…..
RIP – Pete
