True glove often comes to a bad end.
I have it from a reliable source — actually, several sources — that today is (or was) Valentine’s Day. How sweet. I thought I’d record a couple of love songs as a little tribute to this very special day. First, here’s an old Irish song, which I learned off Cordelia’s Dad’s first album. That’s the name of the band, Cordelia’s Dad. This is called “Poor Man’s Labor.”[audio:http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/1/5/600283/Poor_Mans_Labor.MP3]
Then for the women’s side of things, here’s the old Carter Family song, “Wildwood Flower,” touchingly rendered, I thought, on the Philippine mouth harp. The recording has been electronically enhanced just a little. Sing along![audio:http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/1/5/600283/Wildwood_Flower.MP3]
