I used to write (Check out Bumbabooks). I also used read more. Looking back, I have to conclude that my “level of functioning”, my “productivity”, has definitely declined. I suppose I could blame the computer age for some of that. But mostly I would have to credit my reduced literary output to one of my favorite cardinal sins: SLOTH.
Yes, sloth. Good old laziness. Good old kickin the can down the road. All by way of saying that today’s blog is just some songs Maybank and I were doing the other night. I’ll include another entry into the St. James Infirmary Compendium. The Stones’ Love in Vain, Dylan’s Easy Chair, and some blues. I’ve posted most of these songs before, but I do think Maybank and I are getting better on some of these covers, and like I said, I’m a bit too lazy. Anyhow, I need to save up my strength for the upcoming impeachment struggle. The Michael Cohen public hearings ought to be a riot.
Here’s Love in Vain by Robert Johnson (we do the Stones’ version that throws in a relative minor, but remains adults only otherwise).
Here’s just a blues jam we were trying
Here’s another St. James Compendium entry: St. James Infirmary
And here’s Bob Dylan’s Easy Chair
