This is song is from Lavender Country, the 1973 album by the band of the same name. Hailed by many as the “first gay country album,” it’s at the top of my playlist every time I’m feeling too sad and/or too gay to do anything but put a record on.
My thoughts are with the victims in Orlando, may they rest in pride.
Rare, never-before-seen(?) footage of the folk legend live in Chicago sometime during the mid-’60s.
