Take me home, country roads

There’s a line in a Madonna song: “time goes by, so slowly”. Well I can attest it doesn’t, it’s a quarter of a century since my personal British invasion of the US with a bunch of fellow students descending on a summer camp in West Virginia and it seems like only yesterday. Needless to say given our location, the old John Denver song became an obvious anthem for our reunions once we were back in Blighty. Anyway, a quick demo of the song rattled off in a morning with ma good ole acoustic geetar, a MIDI drum track and an attempt at country harmonies. We got both kinds of music here, boy, country AND western…yes, that’s a rather youthful me in the photo taken by Suly Uberman.
