Music today, courtesy once again of “The Basement Collaboration,” hosted by Jerry Farnsworth. Our track today is a beaut. Scot long loved Dylan (like so many of us), but at this time, he taught himself to play (and in this case—sing) some Dylan tunes, like, “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry." Joining “The BC” that night were Ric Dugger playing a guitar that sure sounds like a hollow-body to me. I love his nice ringing tones. Playing soprano sax (?) is Nelson (plays them all) Batalon. I love hearing Scot sink his teeth into this tune, massively grooving on both bass and vocals.
Today’s artwork is a piece that hints at some of the healing modalities that Scot was opening himself to during the last few years of his life.
