The Cosmic Cowboys at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic
Not entirely sure what year this is, but hey those Cosmic Cowboys include Michael Murphy, David Allan Coe, Leon Russell, Waylon Jennings, the Nitty Gritty Dirty Band, Doug Kershaw and others.
Do we talk about Bridget St. John enough? Sure, she’s had plenty of boosters over the years (John Peel was a huge fan), but in my mind she deserves to be mentioned alongside Nick Drake, Sandy Denny, John Martyn and others as one of the great English songwriters of the late 60s/early 70s. And one of the great guitarists, too! It’s possible that St. John just doesn’t have a strong narrative a la Drake for people to latch onto. And she’s kept an extremely low profile for the past few decades, just occasionally surfacing for live shows or guest spots. But whatever, she is amazing — check out the video linked above for proof. And she’s still got it: her recent contribution to Tompkins Square’s Michael Chapman tribute was positively devastating, and hey, you can check out her and Chapman playing in this 2009 video, too. Someone give this lady a record deal!
