Heavy vibes from 2006, unpacked here
Another thing I can’t unhear, in The Crane Wife, “it called and cried” I first heard “and Colin cried.” Now that’s with me forever.
The second chorus of “Come and See” where you really get after it on the “all we know for sure” part--makes my arm hair stand up every time. How many takes did you do to get that?
Crying omg this is one of my faves
When you played this at Edgefield I screamed bro and it was my first concert too 🙏🙏🙏🙏💪💪💪💪🤘💪
One of my favorites, by far. Thank you for the history
I always enjoy reading your annotated songs. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Such a fantastic song (most certainly in my top ten), live and on album (played loudly).... instrumentally, the music always reminds me a bit of In the Court of the Crimson King.
And what a special gift to have it unpacked in this way in your annotations. Especially liked your shout out to the beautifully tragic and important film, Come and See.
Song writing can be such a powerful way for one to honor and make known the creative muses and inspiration in one’s life. It was a blast seeing this unfold in your annotations. Thanks, Colin!
I love these annotated songs! Thanks for sharing.
So how much of The Tempest is in this?
I realize I’m late on this post, but is do you have a recording of your grandfathers song “You”” Not Feel The Drowning?”
Thanks so much for this, and for all the times this song has made its way onto the set list! The otherworldliness is unparalleled.
I can’t help but think that your musings are another layer of art and as interesting as the song itself .
One of my favorites! Surprised to hear that Jethro Tull wasn't inspiration to the keyboards in Landlords Daughter!
Footnote #9 🤣
Absolute favorite song. Thank you for sharing the more intricate details.
I figured the reason I always loved your music was because I was an English major and my fellow college buddy English major was the person who turned me into your music.
Come and see refers to Revelations, also. The 4 horsemen and all of that.
The BBC did a version of The Willows, narrated by Bill Pullman at Christmas last year. It's currently up on YouTube https://youtu.be/kjfLSnL5jUU
