You will have to forgive me for spending a second day on Leo Kottke. This is the end of the week, except for tomorrow when I plan to post a whole set by Kottke. And I realized that I hadn’t made it very far through his career. But at this point, he starts to mix it up more — singing, using a band, and also not being on YouTube. So I figured we would stop on this album and it would make a good overview of his early music.
Today we listen to a very nice slide guitar number, “Up Tempo.” It’s a beautiful tune — managing to be both upbeat and sad at the same time. Also, kind of funny.
