I fought the law and (you know what happens next…)

The folk tradition is filled with social deviancy, mostly in the form of ‘he killed her, but he didn’t get away with it’. In our more current tamer times, she runs with the wild one until the law catches up with him. Here’s two modern folk tales, the first being what I think is the best interpretation of The Road Goes on Forever with Joe Ely performing the Robert Earl Keen tune.

The second is by the master himself.

    Also heard this for the first time in the last few days. Thought it was Blondie (and she did do a cover of it); but it turned out to be Donna Summer. I Feel Love. More techno than disco. Give it a shot.

  6. Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme

    And that’s one of my favorite RT lyrics.

    And a favorite song (below) from the wonderful period when he had Christine Collister and Clive Gregson in the band.
