If You Miss the Train She's On

Such a beautiful voice. I saw them quite a few times in concert. The first was in 1965...ticket prices $3, $4 and $5. How times have changed.

Yeah...I know she was a commie. Although, I didn't understand that at the time I first saw PP&M...17 and stupid. Unlike many in my generation...I grew up. Though, I wouldn't mind the $3 ticket prices again.

Sigh. Yes, I know full well what her political affiliation was in life. That's all over now. I decline to have the good interred with the bones. The song remains.

Good for you Gerard. She was a talented lady and we will miss her. Politics, my god, if you'd known me in the sixties- well, I was a fool then. A lot of us grew up. And Ms. Travers' voice transcends her politics...

Don't exhale.

I caught them on their reunion tour in '78 or so. I wouldn't have gone if someone hadn't given me free tickets, but they put on a very entertaining show that worked on many levels -- aesthetic, spiritual, humorous, etc. I really don't have a problem with the dreams of the left, many of which are quite beautiful. It's only when they try to implement them that they turn ugly.

Still haunting.
