In December 2022 Tina Benitez Eves wrote in American Songwriter about this singer-writer who penned his first charting hit at about the age he started to wear long trousers. I remembered him for one of those typically twee songs that became hits around the turn of the fifties and sixties and, of course for one particularly global phenomenon he helped create. So come follow your art down the sidetracks & detours of the USA to find out more, from Tina Benitez Eves in Paste, about one of the most successful song-writers of all time.

In his review for the Winnipeg Sun, Darryl Sterdan gave the All The Road-Running album by Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris a four out of five stars, calling the collaboration a "match made in heaven".

Running steadily through the book is Vivian Gornick's exchange of more than twenty years with Leonard, a gay man who is sophisticated about his own unhappiness, whose friendship has "shed more light on the mysterious nature of ordinary human relations than has any other intimacy" she has known.

If there isn´t already, there should be some pithy saying about how the habits of childhood become our routes through adulthood.

Our daily posts from Monday 26th June to 30th June will introduce you to a chapter of writers, to discuss whether we become the books we read. We also count all the road running by Emmylou Harris and Mark Knopfler in our Knopfler Kronikles series and take a look at a song-writers writer. Of course we will continue building our bookshelf because we would like to squeeze in Lady GaGa

Your Mama Won´t Dance gives collaborative writing credits to Loggins and Messina. The refrain and first verse is done in a blues format, deals with the 1950s and 1960s lifestyle concerning the generation gap, where the parents oppose the Rock and Roll Revolution of the younger generation, which includes the rebelliousness against the old society that monitors curfews on dating; as well as being arrested for making love with a girl in the back seat of a car during a drive-in movie, which happens during the bridge section of the song.

That sense that music needn’t be trapped in the here and now, that it can pull from the past and push into the future, that it exists for more than next week’s Billboard chart or tomorrow’s YouTube clicker, is the essence of folk music. And just when you might fear that music is dwindling away, DeMent, Brown, Avett, Giddens and Flemons demonstrate how vital it still is.

It is only as I post this piece that I realise that despite knowing Carole King´s songs so well, and this particular era of The Byrds being my favourite I am not sure I would have immediately thought of them all sharing the same shaded part of any Venn diagram.
