We get into the way back machine with Peabody for this tune.  Heard this on CKUA (great station in Alberta).  Never heard of him or the song before.  Great groove though.  Unfortunately, John passed away in 2009.  Great legacy, and he played with Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Phil Collins and many more.  As an aside, to lazy to do the trivia thing tonight.

No posts on the weekend, company coming and it is Canada Day long weekend.  We celebrate the creation of the greatest country on Earth on July 1.

  1. Solid Air was written about one of John’s friends, Nick Drake. Solid Air is Martyn’s best known album, but he produced a number of fine albums of folk and blues inflected rock for over 40 years. Solid Air is particularly special to me as Nick Drake is my favourite musician. Cheers for sharing 🙂
