Track 3 from Tapestry
Length: 00:03:54
Year: 1971
Track Description:
This sounds lame when I write it, but long before I ever first visited the USA this recording encapsulated just about everything that I imagined was good about America. There is a wonderfully laid back feel to all the instrumentation, yet it works so well, and King's voice was never better than on this song.

Track 6 from Unhalfbricking
Length: 00:05:13
Year: 1969
Track Description:
Sandy Denny at her finest. This song was a reflection on life and death, prompted by the result of an auto accident that killed the bands drummer and roadie. There is a sadness and beauty in her voice that I think has never been matched.

Length: 00:05:15
Year: 2002
Track Description:
But I would not overlook Ms. Raitt. This is an extraordinary recording, semi-acoustic blues, but with African as well as US bluesy guitar on board. I would like to imagine that this was recorded on someone's front porch, and not a swanky studio somewhere in LA!
