  4. The title made me think of another song, actually - by song writer and guitarist Patty Larkin. Called Island of Time. Lyrics here . It's a beautiful, wistful thing.

  6. Thanks, everyone.
    Linda: songs have a way of doing that, don't they?

    Dusty: it's nice to "see" you!

    Bet: thanks for the link

    Liberality: don't know Al.

    Steve: Patty Larkin used to play around here frequently. She's a favorite in The Valley. Also, Dar Williams, who is either a native or lived in these parts at one time.

  7. Google "The Year of the Cat" but I don't know that they are brothers. someone told me that years ago and I guess I never questioned it.

  8. Young Rod, up until he went to the USA in 1975, was a wonderful talent. 'Mandolin Wind' has lawys been a favourite song. 'Every Picture Tells A Story' was one of the first albums I ever owned (maybe bought around Christmas 1971 with some money I'd been given). The Faces were awesome, too.
