Al Stewart - Roads To Moscow
The Waterboys - Red Army Blues
certainly plenty of Dylan
and yes Gord's Fitz is an amazing tune and story
Wow! This list hits many of the artists near and dear to me. I got on the board of our local coffee house years ago just to get my mitts on their tapes. Man do I have a collection. This list could never be complete without the late great STAN ROGERS!! There is no such thing as a bad Stan Rogers song. If anyone wants to buy just one Stan album, make it "Between the Breaks.... Live. It is great. Buy it!!! Joe
Since "Roads To Moscow" has been mentioned, I'll go with "Josephine Baker" by Al Stewart.
I have walked past the Mariner's Church in downtown Detroit (referred to in the song as the "Maratime Sailors' Cathedral") and I can verify that is an emotional experience, particularly if a similar freighter happens to be gliding by on the Detroit River.
