Sunday morning I went window shopping and took a bit of a musical road trip. Here at One Longfellow Square, a musical venue in the heart of the city, the windows are plastered with placards advertising coming events. Most weeks there's a little bit of everything featuring a wide range of musical tastes. Want a trip back? Maybe Rodney Crowell, Leon Redbone or Chad and Jeremy might be just the road to take. Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde were a folk rock duo who came along with their counterparts Peter and Gordon. Their hits "Yesterday's Gone", "A Summer Song", "Willow Weep for Me", and "Before and After" were a part of the British Invasion of music in the Sixties. It's my favorite period of music ever. Sunday nights there was a parade of these band across the Ed Sullivan stage. I was tuned in. Judy, Brenda, Judd loved them. I took a pass. I'll take the Kinks, Zombies, and Yardbirds. I still do.
