More on horny folk music

Paul Cilwa:  Wrong on both counts:  I'm Canadian and I've long been a fan of sexually suggestive folk music. I even have a suggestion to make: "Red Staggerwing," which is on All the Roadrunning, the album by Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris that came out last year. It's not quite as blunt as "La Cilentana," but it's playful in  the best way. I consider this album a must-have.  In fact, I've listened to it at least once in every country I have visited on this trip.

Thanks for all your messages, by the way.


Well, I meant "North American"! Though you're right, the Canadians I know are far more enlightened than those of us south of your border.

I am totally enjoying your blog, and I love your writing. I've got a couple of books out there myself, so I mean that professionally.
