I haven’t posted anything from Robbie Fulks’ wonderful Country Love Songs album for a goodly pinch of time now, so armed with that knowledge makes this morning’s selection easy enough.

Apologies for the lack of posts this last week or so; on top of my usual start-of-the-year lethargy, I’ve been struck down with flu-like symptoms (not COVID) which have knocked me for six. I’ve been off work all week – which considering I’ve been working from home for months now gives you an idea of how rough I felt that I couldn’t even summon up the strength to turn my laptop on – but I seem to be coming out the other side now.
