Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. What do you do to make a difference?

Thanks John, excellent version, it's a song that has stood the test of time for sure and lends itself to lots of different treatments

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4up4VP8zjyc Robert Johnson's original version from 1936/7,though it's roots go back even further apparently..
I've always liked The Blues Band's (Paul Jones etc) high energy version, seen 'em a few times
over the years, they always put on a great show, a great singer and harp player, vastly underrated in my opinion.

I've seen and enjoyed the Blues Band few times myself and can only agree they're a grossly underrated band.I really like the Larkin Poe version to :)

El Paso was the first record I ever bought, with some money that my Mum or Dad gave me (to shut me up probably) from a remainder bin somewhere in central London in the early '60's.I always loved the Mexican style guitar on it, played by Grady Martin (I just discovered, who played on a lot of hits in his lifetime),Roy Orbison Patsy Cline etc.

I'd never heard 'Big Iron' before, Benny Hill's 'Ernie' owes a bit to that possibly,'Big Iron' link..

Still nothing ......... but listening to the clocks ticking.

Yesterday evening, I listened to The Manhattan Transfer singing "I know why (and so do you)".
Much better than the Moonlight Serenade Glen Miller original and more in keeping with the swing era.
My dad was an accomplished pianist and often played swing other than the classical stuff. This music was one of his favourites when he was in the RAF during 2nd WW in the NAAFI, but he played it with swing! :D
