Allow me to introduce you to one of the greatest records ever made

Guy Clark died  today.

He wrote some great songs and made two strong albums in the seventies.

You can get both of them for £2.99, which is plain ridiculous.

My favourite song of his was "Desperados Waiting For A Train".

 My favourite version of that was by Mallard, the group formed by former members of Captain Beefheart's Magic Band.

Here it is.


  1. Freddie White also did a fine rendition of this tune - and it's on YouTube.

  2. You are right £2.99 is barmy. Tremendous records.

  3. Well done. I almost forgive you for leaving "Lick My Decals Off Baby" out of your book on albums that charted in '71.Almost.
