THE GRATEFUL DEAD Pretty Peggy-O

And here’s a poignant and poetic video of The Grateful Dead in 1994. Jerry Garcia died the following year.

FAIRPORT CONVENTION Who Knows Where The Time Goes?

In the late 1960s/early 1970s I was heavily into the emerging English folk-rock scene (bands like Pentangle, Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention). At the same time I discovered the new and exciting sounds coming from America’s West Coast: Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe And The Fish, The Byrds, The Doors, Buffalo Springfield, CSN & Y, Big Brother & The Holding Company.

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it’s time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it’s time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it’s time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?
