Great news, for me anyway.  My car radio started working again.  Good thing for a few reasons.  First, I have music again (old car – no iPod plug) and second, I get to tap into my favourite music resource again.  Today, we have the Wailin’ Jennys doing a cover of the great one’s (not Gretzky, Neil Young) song “Old Man” off his classic Harvest album.  An outstanding cover with superb 3 part harmonies and some great guitaring.  I am sure Neil would be proud.  The group originated in Winnipeg and has a couple of incarnations over the years.  They have performed since 2002 and have 4 albums to their credit.  This song is off their 2004 album “40 days”.
