Easy Ed's Broadside

Exploring music without a map.

Since 2009, Ed has shared his thoughts on ND about music that touches him, and rambled hither and yon about what else is on his mind.

Folk Across the Water: Naomi Bedford & Paul Simmonds

Well Ed...now I know what to give myself for Xmas..."Songs the Ruiner Gave Me" for a start...Like everything you posted here and a nice take on Roland it is...as for Justin Currie...yep, one of may all time favorites...I still play Del Amitri, particularly 1992's "Change Everything", frequently...an incredible songwriter...just picked up his latest solo record, his fourth...excellent...your column...also excellent...

Happy Holidays Ed...Peace.

Thanks Jim. And a happy holiday season to you as well. 

Nice post-good tunes-they remind me of Offa Rex (or Offa Rex reminds me of them considering the timeline).

Thanks for providing entertainment/diversion from our impending doom. 

Mr. Mutt...where will I go for levity if you throw in the towel...?

Y’all are welcome to wander over to my Facebook page The Real Easy Ed and post whatever you want. I occasionally post Donavan videos. 

Thanks for the invite Ed...you have done so before...I have a FB page myself, which I pretty much ignore...it's mostly for communicating with my theater friends as they use it almost exclusively...but I resolve in this coming new year to visit your page more often...it's starting to feel a bit...um...funereal (is that a word?) around here...mourgeish?...perhaps it was just Mutt's last post that has me feeling that way... 

As for Donovan, that's fine, Dennis will appreciate...for me, a little Eugene Record/Chi-lites, or Jules Shear works...
