Walk with one shoe – 3

Its dark, the roads wet, glistening a misty rain lightly coats my face as i walk the city streets. Nomads, hoods drawn wrestle with shadows known only to themselves argue with the unseen as they scurry by. Makeshift beds litter the shopfront doorways all the marks have gone.

Geoff had written a song “Crazy Horse” and his introduction to this fabulous song resonated with me. Geoff’s anecdote talked...

Rickie Lee Jones – A Review by Colin Talbot

Rickie Lee Jones
Rickie Lee Jones--Me & Ms Jones, there's a thing going on...She & band played the Recital Hall which is a far far cry from Festival Hall or Rod Laver, thankfully. It is a mature venue, the like of which did not exist in my youth. And I'd never heard hardly anything RLJ had done apart from 'Chuck E's in...
