Eclectic Parrot Site Resumes with New Format

Eclectic MixTape:  Track-of-the-Day

I’m back !  Obviously, with the last post dated August of 2013, I haven’t exactly kept up with my ambitions for the site (regular, lengthy reviews and features).  The stress of being a daytrader didn’t seem to leave room for that.

I’ve decided instead to change the format to short, sweet posts on a single track (an eclectic blend, of course) sometimes with a few paragraphs of description, and other times merely a brief introduction.  Given the importance of music for me in over a half-century on this planet (and I assume for you if you’re visiting), I’ve decided to be practical and go for an efficient blend of quality/quantity.   My Twitter page may be your best bet if you just want the tunes (video/audio links will always be included), but also stop by here from time to time for a bit of sparkling prose (or at least my idea of it). 

To re-start the ball rolling, here’s one for fans of the Amazon TV series Patriot, who may be wondering who recorded the theme song, a Sixties folk gem:

Traveling north, traveling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll say when find you
Call out your name love, don't be surprised

… It's many hundred miles and it won't be long, it wont be long

(1966 – London, England)
