needles and pins


the album that makes me weep the most of all is Goat's Head Soup.

They are winter songs they fsr recorded partially in Jamaica.

They couldn't have made a less 'traditional' ballad'sy album and it feels like maybe they all just felt misplaced in Kingston. The reggae influence didn't come till much later it seems in Black and Blue.

Yet the guitar effects are so heavy and moody... mein got 😮

perhaps thats sums it up: progressive guitars 4 nostalgic ends 😭

Sing we for love and idleness

naught else is worth the having

and though i have lived in many a land

naught else is worth the giving

and I would rather have my sweet (though rose leaves die of grieving)

than do high deeds in Hungary to pass all men's believing
