"... it will be a rumba, going into a shuffle, so it's a ruffle really"..

This is really nothing special. Could be a long forgotten obscure classic from any long NHB play list. Typical box set bonus song formerly    kown as a b-side. Hope it's no indicator for the new album.

I remember the magic when Redbud Tree turned up as radio edit. I could literally do nothing else than repeat it possibly 30, 40 times. I missed the train to work. I was touched by it's magic and beauty of the solo, the mysterious lyrics and it's sheer impact.
This one I have trouble to listen to it for a third time. So predictable. Nothing special, no MK touch.

But hey that's just me. It's cool from him to turn up with a new song that without any doubt fits in perfectly well to the occasion of the night.

The quality of Marijn's recording is far better than the YouTube clip, which didn't impress me too much, so, LE, if you haven't listened yet, please do so.   ;)    btw Thanks for the recording, Marijn.   ;)

This one is good too:

Thank you Val, your link indeed sounds much better.

I might mention that I am not disappointed or bad tempered or anything at all. Just don't like it but with a happy heart. I am totally in peace with MK and his work and no new song that turns up can damage that (I guess). He has done so much great things over the last decades that for me, he is untouchable and in some sort of "Encore Mode" of his career if you like. Holy smoke!

I don't care if the song is Stongehenge old, the man still loves to play!  :D :D  I am not so fond of blues, but the first part is nice. For me this is a very nice surprise, specially after Donegan's gone and Sonny...
And how glad I am that Mark doesn't *yell* the lyrics like Van Morrison do.

LE released a good point, I also think that it's a perfect choice of a song for a blues festival.

So I can't be satisfied more under those conditions, and regarding Mark's guitar playing — holidays certainly wasn't bad for him! Very refreshing MK.

This is exactly that. Bill Wyman's King of Rythm are exactly the same, just playing classic Blues and R&B stuffs. Mark would have been out of its shoes if he went to perform something à la Haul Away.
And never heard Mark play blues that great  even when playing the golden sideman in EC's band. This is exactly what would give me wish to move my ass to attend Mark next time because that seriously swing!

It occurred to me that this song would fit in very nicely at a NHB concert, or on a new album....mmmm   :think
