Springtime Jukebox: Tune #4....Lightning Bolt.


This time it's a tune by the wunderkind straight out of Nottingham, Jake Bugg.

There's a whole lotta hype surrounding this kid, who my youngest, littler e. introduced me to.

And while he may have listened to too many industry geniuses and musical idols while making his second album he's still damned good.

And how can you not dig a kid who, 40 years after the fact says that hearing 'Vincent/Starry Starry Night' from 'that' album by Don McLean for the first time changed his life.

It's like Grade 7, in the schoolyard, with the whole wide world right in front of you/me all over again.

Which, of course, gives me another Jukebox idea (for a later tune)...

In the meantime, here's my Takamine plugged-in version of Mister Bugg's 'Lightning Bug':

You wanna see/here the real thing?....It can be found....Here.

Took awhile to get around to this. Had a good listen this afternoon and got to hear some lovely tunes that fall somewhat out of the register of my normal routine. It's pretty stripped down, but that just lets the lyrics shine through. Keep it rolling!
