I saw this headline on Huffington Post tonight and it made me fall down in the floor laughing.
This guy will truly say anything for a vote. We know what he tells his millionaire buddies and you can see what he is selling today in the headline above. I have said it before and I will say it again. He truly thinks America, or at least all of it except for the 1%, is stupid enough to fall for it. Need more to convince you of that? Watch this……
So….let’s forget about politics for a few minutes and get back to music. Today’s Album of the Week post wraps up my series on Dan Fogelberg and represents your last chance to help him get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Home Free, released in 1972, was Dan Fogelberg’s first album. Although it was not a hit when first released, it has since been certified platinum. I personally think Home Free is one of the very best initial releases by any of the singer/songwriters from the early 1970s.
I wanted to do something a little different with this album so I scoured the internet to find early performances of as many of the Home Free songs as possible. These live performances, along with some of actual Home Free album tracks, provide you with an interesting view of a young artist at the very beginning of his career. Good stuff. Let’s listen…..
To The Morning – 1973
Stars – 1974
More Than Ever (album track)
Be On Your Way (album track)
Looking For A Lady/Hickory Grove – 1971
Long Way Home (album track)
Anyway I Love You/Let Me Go – 1971
Wisteria (album track)
The River (album track)
So….do you agree with me that Dan belongs in the Hall of Fame. If so, sign the petition at the following link.
I would get on the phone with my friend Bibi Netanyahu ……..and ask what would you like me to do!
Think about that if you even consider pulling the lever for Mitt.
Let me lay it on the line….an Israeli initiated war with Iran will not be one that is limited to air power! It will eventually involve boots on the ground and those boots will be filled with with young Americans from the 47%. In his own words: “My job is not to worry about those people.”
The children of the 1% are NEVER the ones on the front lines…..
I’m with Phil Ochs, the greatest protest singer from the 1960s…..
We will talk a lot more about Phil in some future protest song posts.
