Re: Quiet Days

Temple Records, 1992 (because no-one has mentioned that yet)
Also, I really enjoy the Battlefield Band’s longer sets where they mix a bunch of tunes with a song. In this case, on this album, it is on track 8. The song on this one, “Bonnie George Campbell” is really good, in my opinion. The melody and some of the lyrics reminds me of an old nursery rhyme I’ve heard sung before called “Ride a Cock Horse.”
