Ron Sexsmith Sings Dylan, Beatles, and Buddy Holly
I had dinner with a couple of Canadians the other night, and mentioned I had been listening to Ron Sexsmith. They thought I was talking dirty or something. Apparently, even in his own country, Sexsmith is not that well known. It's a damn shame, because his lonesome, melancholy music is really great, and who doesn't get lonesome and melancholy sometimes? He even makes other people's music sound lonesome and melancholy, as he does on these three songs from the radio show Idiot's Delight with Vin Scelsa, recorded on August 15, 1995.
Crying, Waiting, Hoping
You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
After you've enjoyed these, buy some of Ron records and go see him in concert. h/t to starsonesp for sharing.
