Thanks Sal

The wolfmen is a nice foil to the Alan Toussaint song.

Hope your weekend has charged your batteries for the week ahead. Last week's tasty morsels just dl'd, many thanks. Good to hear the John Martyn again & I'm lovin' the Miller/Babys/ Chi-Lites opening triad. Cheers!

I was not familiar with "I Wave Bye Bye". What a beautiful song. The Allen Toussaint version was my first exposure and I immediately went to the original. Both are unbelievably awesome.

I love the Babys but wasn't familiar with this track either. There's a Zep feel to that bridge. Pretty nice. Always loved John Waite's vocals. So nonchalant.

Karen and I are literally in tears listening to Jesse Winchester's "I Wave Bye Bye". What an evocative song.

Glad you had that reaction to the song. I feel the same way. I think by now, everyone has seen Jesse's performance on Elvis Costello's Spectacle. One thing from that episode that also stood out for me was Elvis pointing out that the first song Jesse ever wrote was Brand New Tennessee Waltz. He may not be as heralded a songwriter as some others, but he sure has enough in his catalogue to consider.
