Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on July 10, 20022 Show #186
*We'll enjoy a track that is full of gypsies, travel and community. It's about the open road and music, a general celebration of freedom, despite the writer and performer creating it during a stationary period of his life.. He had moved to Woodstock, NY after recording an album in 1968 lured by the peace, quiet and the art community. And the other reason...Bob Dylan had also recently moved there. While his house was over a mile away from any other houses, he swore he could hear a radio playing as though it was in the same room...a mystery that fascinated him even to this day. Name the artist and extra credit for the song title...
*In 1971 this artist released a much more heavily produced album than his 1st three...including a lush string section. The track we'll enjoy ripened into one of his classics, but it didn't even crack the Top 40 upon release.The charting failure may have been due to the fact that the song ran 6:12, making it too long for many radio stations (not so much on Inside The Gates Radio). Name the artist, the album and the track...
*Eric Clapton claimed in a press release for this album, his 14th of original material, that "One of the earliest statements I made about myself was back in the late ;80's with Journeyman. But this album completed the cycle in terms of talking about my whole journey as an itinerant musician and where I find myself now, starting a new family. That's why i chose this title of the album". Name the album...
*This artist wrote most of his own material, but one of his biggest hits was a cover written by Rodney Crowell, who recorded it on his 1981 self-titled album. The plaintive track reflect on the burdens and compulsions every man carries, which seem to be most acute around midnight. Some called it a country and western song. The artist admits to it being western...but it is actually a Cowboy song. Name the artist and extra credit for the song title...
