Well, there's no running news to report, so I decided to treat you to some good music.
(I didn't run this past week, I'll do a test run tomorrow and am hoping to be pain-free after 8 long weeks.)
So thanks to an unrelated Leadbelly link from former running and blogging legend, now brewing legend, Steve Lacey, I came upon The Rock Island Line, one of the greatest songs ever, which I hadn't heard for years and years.
Here's the Leadbelly original:
Then it got juiced up a bit by Carl Perkins:
And reached full expression by Johnny Cash (this is a remix, but good; you don't have to listen to the last part):
This is also a great version. Little Richard can generate more excitement just sitting in a chair in a studio than most singers can on a big stage:
Hope you enjoyed that. Talk to you next week.
