Ah, capricious memory! Woke up this morning with a voice in my head whispering “Terry Reid!” I hadn’t thought of this underrated and all but forgotten rocker in many years, but here he is performing “Live Life” in 1973. It’s a great song to get the vital juices going of a winter morning.

    Wow. Another Terry Reid fan. A small but discriminating group, we are. How about a chorus of "Mayfly"?

    Mr. Reid is still busy these days. In case you haven't heard it, here's his recent collaboration with DJ Shadow:

    Or, maybe a run-through of "Without Expression"?

    One of my all time favorites. Remember seeing him at the Easttown in Detroit. Terrific show.
