Loudon Wainwright III Continued

A few years back, I spent an entire summer listening to Loudon Wainwright’s A Live One on repeat. One of the first posts I ever made on this little ol’ website, which was amazingly over a year ago, was about that album. Since then, I’ve posted several odes to Mr. Wainwright’s “Raffi for adults” style and after lying in bed with Unrequited and a belly full of s’mores last night, I thought I’d share some more this morning. Loudon’s a waspy, self-depricating Bob Dylan trying stand-up.

Thanks for reading this rag, y’all. I appreciate it.

Woodstock

Smithsonian Magazine has a small article about the photograph that graces the cover of Woodstock:

Early Sunday morning, Uzzle, happily stuck at Woodstock, left his makeshift tent with two Leicas strapped round his neck. “Gracie Slick of Jefferson Airplane was singing, bringing up the dawn,” he remembers. “And just magically this couple stood up and hugged.” They kissed, smiled at each other, and the woman leaned her head on the man’s shoulder. “I just had time to get off a few frames of black and white and a few of color, then the light was over and the mood was over,” Uzzle says of what would become his best-known photograph. His subjects never noticed.
