It has been quite a while since any music has found it’s way to these pages and I decided I needed to find and share a Steve Forbert song for this evening. It took a while to find this gem, a spirited live version of the first song on side 2 of the first record, Alive on Arrival, (1978).
This performance (1979) took place just about the time that I was being introduced to Steve’s music while away at college in Maryland. Since then, I’ve seen him dozens of times and realized that I will not be able to catch him on his annual tour through the Southeast this Fall.
If you are a fan of Steve’s music, just put his name in my search box and you will find many songs and stories.
Maybe next year he will play somewhere within driving distance of our new home in Michigan?
