So… I’m going to totally be a fan here. ok. I love Reckless Kelly, if a band was going to call me right now and invite me to join them on the road, I’d pick RK over anyone. period. That being said, they always cover this song live, and its absolutely stupendous. Check it out on YouTube or something if your curious. After seeing them a week or two ago, i (once again) couldn’t let go of this song, and as I told myself I’d do on this blog, i recorded a song that I love and I had fun doing it regardless of whether or not I’m being a nerdy fan, or whether its cool to do it, or whether or not my version is a shadow compared to what RK did with this Richard Thompson classic folk song.
Willie Braun always say, “this is the greatest song ever written about motorcycles and redheads” what more do you need to know? I copied a pic of the bike below because it is a very breath taking very vintage british motorcycle. The one below is actually a ’52 like the song metions (redhead not pictured).
