Shoot, it’s been a week of serious, deep conversations around here, it seems like.
Which is cool, don’t get me wrong. But it puts me in the mood for something completely different to wrap my mind around.
I pick Napoleon Strickland. If this link works, you should be able to hear a very nice fife & drum piece. If not, holler and I’ll try to get it straight.
I remember where I was the first time I heard this type of music. I was driving over Briley Parkway on Lebanon Road, headed east, when Othar Turner’s "Glory, Glory Hallelujah" came on the radio. I about had an accident I was so "what the fuck is that?!" It sounded like nothing I’d ever heard before
Some folks don’t like it. But I do. It makes me happy.
It also brightened my day to be called a ‘suspected communist.’
Just saying. Don’t think I didn’t see that.
