Lefsetz Review (Oct. '12)
"... Then there are other songs, less famous, that mean even more to me, because they're mine. Never played on the radio, never discussed in the paper, but part of my own personal pantheon. Like 'Restless In Mind.'
I love Wendy Waldman's music. I bought her initial album upon the recommendation of "Rolling Stone" and I was not disappointed. I still play it forty years on. But Wendy never broke through. She had a few hits, sung by others, but stop people on the street and they're clueless.
But a few years back, not that many, in this century, Wendy released an album of loose ends entitled Seeds and Orphans and there's this cut on there entitled 'Restless In Mind.' I play it at least twice a week. When nothing is going right, when I need to feel in the pocket, I pull it up on my iPod. It never disappoints."
After a long and intermittently very hot summer here in Northridge, I woke up to rain this morning. I had been late coming home, driving back from Orange County at 2AM after playing a set in Dan Navarro's room at the Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) conference. It was great to see some good friends there, and to try out a few new songs. I must admit that Kenny Edwards was sorely missed by all of us, as he always is. I miss him deeply every single day. But the marvelous thing I've noticed is that people are starting to play his songs--one guy did "Misery and Happiness," and it sounded like some old mountain tune that had been found in the Alan Lomax archives. I KNOW Kenny would love this more than. . .
