John Prine, Arlo Guthrie, Country Joe McDonald

Today I am needing a great big break from the politics of the day and all the worry and such. So from time to time I just need a dose of music that made me feel good back during a time when things were more simple for me. The music of the 60's. The times were not easy but the main difference was that people cared about the issues put in front of them, whether they be right or wrong, they cared. Today I think people for the most part have been so screwed by big business that they have just decided to concentrate on survival rather than change. I hope with all my heart that this is not true but for today I think I'll just chill and have a listen to some old friends.
