Music Night: Then and Now

The passing of Reg Pressley of the Troggs took me back to the summer of 1966. I was 18 years old at the time and Wild Thing bent the borders of radio at the time. Chip Taylor wrote the song, as well as Angel in the Morning among many others. It wasn’t until 2004 when Chip Taylor got on my radar again. Cat’s and I caught him and Carrie Rodriguez at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival. Bluegrass, of course is where the money ain’t, but when you blow a cool fortune on a gambling habit, you gotta start over somewhere. Then and now- Chip Taylor, a damn good songwriter.
