Manassas, with Stephen Stills...



Fallin' and spinnin'

Losin' and winnin'

Keepin' my head

Watchin' for signals

Wear some uigil

Was I misled

I remember you said that you

Don't want to forget me

It doesn't matter

Which of our fantasies fled

Every tomorrow

Lookin' to borrow

A piece of today

Run a bit faster

Here comes the catcher

Makin' his play

You had better not stay

You will soon be surrounded

It doesn't matter

Which of our fantasies fled

Lonely and winsome

Calling for someone

Living right now

Something is shallow

Ugly and hollow

Doesn't even allow

You to want to know

how you might

Live for the living and

Give for the giving. Living

Moment by moment

One day at a time

It doesn't matter

It's nothin' but dreamin' any how.

Otra joya perdida en el tesoro de la historia. Una de las formaciones surgidas del entorno de ensueño de Buffalo Springfield, esto es, de los ya muy aclamados Crosby, Stills, Nash y el sr. Young. Me refiero al grupo Manassas, banda formada por Stephen Stills a comienzos de los setenta junto al ex-Byrd Chris Hillman, con el que crearía temas de tan preciosa factura como éste, It doesn´t matter...dónde blues, folk y ritmos de aires latinos se fusionan para dar forma a un de los mejores álbumes de Stills en su carrera en solitario.

Todo un placer poder tenerlo aquí...

Album realmente increible, una pena que en estos miseros tiempos que corren sea un desconocido.
Long may you run!
