27072014 - Roger McGuinn "Cardiff Rose"

There's a lot I don't know about Roger McGuinn's solo career, and this album is one I had not heard. I think I like it, but it's a bit strange hearing the Byrds frontman emulate Joe Strummer on "Rock And Roll Time". His pirate shanty on the track "Jolly Roger" also takes a bit of getting used to. "Friend" is more classic McGuinn, and a gorgeous lament to boot, fiddle and all. It would be a lie to say I'm in love with all the songs here, but when he's good he's great!
