Alice

 This goes out to the Cunning Runt because it's that time again.  :-)  Stay off of ladders after ice storms for me, will ya?  :-)

  1. That is one of the most hauntingly moving songs I've ever heard.

    Some of the others on the album are, um, challenging to say the least!

    Incidentally, while I was learning to play "Alice" it came to light that most of the songs on that album are musical variations of the same theme, albeit reworked in ways which mask their essential similarity - I thought you might find that interesting.

    Thanks so much for putting it up; my copy was in the Forester CD player when I totaled it, and the insurance company wouldn't let me try to get it out!

  2. This is ... fantastic!

    TheCunningRunt desribes it so accurately; 'hauntingly moving'

    I had not heard this before, so 'thank you'.

  3. CR - I like a lot of the other songs on that album! Particularly the one he recorded in German. And then there is the song with the train whistle in it - love that one. But truthfully? I haven't listened to the whole thing in years. I just like this one song right about this time of year when it's cold and winter is moody. :-)

  4. Hello Sphinx! This is why I love coming over to a visit - love it! Loved your post about Georgia O'Keeffe...I can't say I remember learning any of this in art appreciation :) Take care & have a lovely weekend!

  5. CR: I *do* find that interesting. Is there a piano at the house or did you manage to rescue ours from the Tea Street house?

    SKG: so glad you enjoyed your visit, dear summer girl!

    Love and groovyness to all!

  6. Gina, the piano was left to the landlord, much to my (and his!) dismay - I just had nowhere to put it!

    Holly has a piano she hopes to bring out here when the renovations are done, two years from now. Until then I'm just playing the table!
