I went to Vanderbilt University, which is in Nashville, which is one of the centers of the musical industry. A side effect of this was that I was immersed in music all of the time. Bands were everywhere, and because there was so much competition for any music gig, even the worst bars and restaurants had a really good band.
Another side effect of this is that I was exposed to much country and country-fusion music. These were the biggest years for country rock, in the mid-1970’s. Hence, when listing my favorite songs, there are always one or two surprises, like this one, a duet between Hoyt Axton and Linda Ronstadt. I’ve loved it for thirty years.
