"So far away..."

Okay, we've done Norah Jones (w/Keith Richards), Gram Parsons, both with and without (the inexplicably deleted) Whiskeytown cover vids, Emmylou, U-2 w/ Mary J. Blige, Bono with Tom Waits and with Pavarotti, Bethy, REM (twice), and Mazzy Star . So, as the Monty Python players might say, "Now, for something completely different". Okay, it's not that different, but it is a great tune for a Friday in keeping our hallowed Καθολικός διάκονος tradition.

To round out this trip down memory lane and since I'm spinning the records, this one is for my dear wife, from whom, especially early in our marriage, I spent so much time apart.

In the near term, we will enjoy more REM, Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Mazzy Star, etc. We'll also (finally) work in some Police and Bruce Springsteen.


  1. Dire Straits is my favorite band!!! :)

  2. Mark Knopfler has such a distinctive sound! Glad you're groovin'
