Martin Luther King's Birthday was observed Monday, but we got a jumpstart on it with his real Birthday last week.
And Freedom is of course a year-round endeavor.
This chapter I want to open up with 2 of the greatest British bands of all time, and their songs of freedom.
In our brief history of Dr. King, we note the injustice of those bad old days- doesn't make sense really.
And in light of that, the next two-song set may seem trivial.
But it was a chance to get us back to some lighter fare, and the freedoms discussed in these songs are as valid as any.
Freedom can be a very subjective feeling to those involved.
After that, for those for whom freedom comes easy, Rick Nelson & The Stone Canyon Band.
They were doing Country-Rock as well or better than anyone during their time, and I have a song Rick wrote in the early 70's.
Neither this one nor others got much radio airplay, and it is the public's loss.
I will end this episode with one of the best song-to-song segues I have EVER done- these two were made for each other!
Join Martin and I, for some great Music!
