Long John Baldry- Flying

The MP3 Flew Away

Not unlike British bandleader John Mayall, Baldry is best known for featuring young talent that would later find fame and fortune. The biggest veteran of Baldry's "school of blues" is Rod Stewart. Here, Baldry covers the exceptional Stewart, Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood song "Flying." Baldry died earlier this year.

It was reported in the New York Times this morning that Van Morrison is busy at work on a new album of country tunes, including the Webb Pierce classic "There Stands The Glass."

That's a great idea. I know Van's true believers praise each new release, but I hear too many cranky old man songs. Maybe this country title will help him break out of his rut.
