    The Blasters played the first two Farm Aids. Check their videos from those shows. Man, they were smokin'!

    Blaster Phil Alvin wrote this one for his solo album County Fair 2000 and played it with the incarnation of The Blasters that was around in the late '90s. I did this for Season 164. I hope I've improved a bit since then. At least it's in a key I can approximate!

    Default SOTU 290: Farm Aid/September - TAKE A LITTLE WALK WITH ME - ddanner (2017)

    Originally, I started writing this song with a narrator telling you that there was a boy on a farm and a girl nearby, etc., etc. Well, that quickly proved to be a dumb idea, and I don't think Linda is that strict on her Rules ! Just imagine a young couple that happen to live on nearby, neighboring farms to each other.

    I wrote this to be sung as a duet, but Evelyn and I are on differing schedules this week, so I had to go it alone. This is my first solo performed "Duet." Ya never know what new challenge the Seasons will bring forth!

    Hope you enjoy:

    Season 290. Submission 2. "Wallflower" (Written by Bob Dylan, 1971)


    Linda, I've just recently fallen in love with this song (as in yesterday ). It doesn't sound like many of Dylan's other songs, for sure. Dylan performed at the first Farm Aid Concert and many credit him as suggesting there be a Farm Aid when he was performing at a Live Aid Concert.

    Yay! We made it with number 2 for this week! It's a little bit rough in patches, but we had fun practicing together. Matisyahu played at the Farm Aid concert in 2007.

    Didn't do my best but I hope it isn't a waste of time to listen to. I think I did alright considering it was a one day project to try to memorize.

    for some reason the speed of my playing greatly increased when entering it in my DAW. Oh well, here is my best effort despite this.

    This has been a really great week of music. We've had some real fine quality songs come in by all of you. There is still seven hours of time left here until the close of the week so if you have anything else you want to share I'll have a listen in the morning.

    Have a good time with the new season. Ive put my few seconds in over there and now I will be playing with kids. I have to get them up early for school so Im off to bed soon....I can't remember the last time Ive tried to sleep this early. Im sure I will spend several hours willing myself to sleep which makes me anxious and then wide awake!

    Wish me luck. I need it!
    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
