Settings of poems by Lorca, Kerouac, William Blake, Allen Ginsburg, Dylan Thomas, and Keith James himself. Plus a nice cover of White Room (the words for which were written by the beat poet Pete Brown, so on topic…)
Folking.com has already reviewed his ‘Always…’ CD from 2015, but I got a copy along with ‘Tenderness Claws’, so I may review it for this site.
A suddenly resurrected blues-y song. First time sung in about 30 years, so a bit rough, but I like the energy.
I woke up in the night thinking about this one for the first time in maybe 30 years. Fortunately, I could still find the words, though I’ve changed them slightly here (also the tempo is a bit more upbeat than when I originally wrote it). Unusually (for me) the slide is an open G. I’ve been using an open C again recently, too.

Sitting it out at the full moon Reading my mail from the next room Can’t you see we’re dying Dying of communication?
Checking it out with the radio Late late news is ‘no place to go’ Can’t you see we’re dying Dying of communication?
Sitting it out in the bathroom Freaked out on ego juice Fighting it out in the bedroom Wondering what’s the use Everyone knows we’re dying Dying of communication
Please ignore this for now: I’m not offering an information list at the moment, just trying something out for someone else. And there’s a link to follow blog articles by email on the right hand side of this blog, anyway, and you can also contact me via the contact form here, of course.
Mind you, now I’ve had the idea, maybe I will. Watch this space. But you have plenty of time to blink.
