A regular visitor to the UK, Nanci Griffith performed for three nights, along with her ‘Blue Moon Orchestra’, at the Royal Albert Hall in October 1994, in support of her most recent album ‘The Flyer’. Dubbed by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘Queen of Folkabilly’, Nanci Griffith released her first two albums in 1978 and 1982 on a local Austin, Texas label. Her breakthrough came in 1986 with the album Last of the True Believers, which earned her a Grammy nomination and led to her being signed by MCA. She went on to release Lone Star State of Mind, which included the hugely acclaimed Julie Gold composition ‘From a Distance’.

Her 1989 album Storms, and 1991’s Late Night Grand Hotel moved her music further into the pop mainstream, before she returned to her country folk roots with the Grammy winning Other Voices, Other Rooms, an album celebrating folk songwriters including Bob Dylan, Ralph McTell and Tom Paxton. Her 1994 Royal Albert Hall set includes Across The Great Divide, Don’t Forget About Me, Tecumseh Valley, and Nobody’s Angel. - bbc.co.uk

dbeamer407, Dime:

This has a heart breaking introduction to It’s A Hard Life Wherever You Go.

“I hope that like most of the members of my family, that I live to have a long and healthy life and live well into my 90s. And continue to write songs and be outstanding in my field. And if I do live that long, I hope that I  shall always remember that this next song was the most important piece of work that I’ve ever written. And I hope that by the time that I reach that age that it will no longer be relevant.”

Heartbreaking because Nanci didn’t get to live the long and healthy life into her 90s that she hoped for and especially because It’s A Hard Life Wherever You Go is still relevant 27 years after she made that introduction and that she never got to see it no longer be relevant. Let’s hope that day will come. [Nanci Griffith passed away on August 13, 2021. She was 68.]

  22. I have a strong hankering to swallow some man meat. I also want some of that vanilla protein shake when I squeeze the nut sac.

    By Heartlands Patriot on Dec 18, 2021

  23. Kim Potter should be found guilty of manslaughter.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  24. But at least she knew she’d done something terribly wrong. Most of the murdering police act like they’ve done nothing wrong. It’s more than just a few bad apples-they react the way they do because they believe their superior officers have no problem with them killing unarmed suspects.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  25. But it goes both ways- more police officers are getting killed as each year progresses. One was seriously wounded in an ambush in Baltimore yesterday.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  26. The more I think about it, maybe these police shootings aren’t a matter of officers panicking. There are so many felons with a long history of violent convictions that should have kept them in jail forever, but they are out on the street. So maybe the police ARE actually hunting them down.

    Prison sentences need to be stricter. Officers should not be executing people on the street.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  27. I’m a Democrat, but a moderate one. I don’t agree with defunding the police, doing away with bail, or allowing people to loot and set fires in a riot. The country needs more moderates on both sides of the political aisle, but extremists on both sides and running wild.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  28. That’s why the racists here think I approve of crime. It’s beyond their capacity to realize there ARE rational people whose opinions are closer to the middle of the spectrum.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  29. There has to be a sensible solution between abolishing the police and letting them gun people down in the streets. We don’t need more laws. We need these progressive, pin-headed prosecutors to enforce them and judges to give appropriate prison sentences.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  30. This is the beginning of something new, my Friday lectures on current issues. Stay tuned to see what next Friday brings.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  31. By the way, if these posts annoy you, feel free to ignore them. Nothing you comment will discourage me from continuing.

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  32. Charlie Manson was innocent

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2021

  33. Not

    By Mark on Dec 18, 2021

  34. I ain’t been sayin much lately cause of all the queer faggots and Dic suckin Jew bastard name hijackers here . Mark , you jew Bastard, conservative is the only philosophy that counts. We need all conservatives in government, and in the courts . Liberals is anti fuckin American and has destroyed this country. Many is jew Bastards.

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2021

  35. Kim Potter should be found innocent of all charges and givin a medal for wackin that coon . Just like all them motherfuckin coons that got wacked , he was resisting arrest and tryin to escape. What’s wit these dumbass coons. When a white officer tells these monkeys to do something, they should shut their pie holes and just do what they is told , yessa missa Officer sir or ma’am is all they need to say . Them coons act like they is white , sassin the cops . Derek Chauvin should get out of jail right away . Can’t believe he was convicted, well actually I guess I can today wit all these liberal coon lovers in the courts . We need more Chauvins out their puttin man sized knees to the necks of these coon monkeys

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2021

  36. All that said , bein a street cop is a mans job , not a fuckin woman’s . Potter fuckin panicked. A man probably wouldn’t have . I don’t believe women should be street cops wit guns or in combat in the military. It’s this fuckin women’s lib bullshit that’s been goin on since the late 60s . Women think they is men . Potter instead of bein a street cop , should have been behind a desk someplace. That’s what bitches should do. Not carrying guns thinkin they is men for fucks sake . Women in the work force is another thing that’s destroying the country. They was meant to be wives and moms ,barefoot and pregnant, in the kitchen, takin care of their husbands needs and havin kids . Women’s lib is almost as bad as all this race mixin shit that’s been goin on for half a century. Get back to the way it was in the 40s and 50s . Be like Ozzie and Harriet, Father knows best etc .and keep the coons in their own parts of town . Make it a crime to date or marry a coon . Bring back Jim Crow .

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2021

  37. That woman cop should be found innocent. Another dead nigger is a good thing . Agree with Derrick, women shouldn’t carry guns and be on the street . A man wouldn’t have mistaken a gun for a taser . Plus her crying on the stand made me want to throw up . Typical female , show some pride woman . A man wouldn’t have broken down on the stand . More proof that women shouldn’t be cops .

    By Nelson on Dec 18, 2021

  38. Chauvin never should have been charged , much less found guilty. Watch the complete video . Nigger Floyd was resisting arrest. A cop can’t do his job anymore. Look at Chicago and that nigger woman mayor Lori Lightfoot. It’s a combat zone . How the hell do these liberal niggers get elected in the first place ? Niggers are animals.

    By Nelson on Dec 18, 2021

  39. Mark, she did society a favor. Plain and simple. No race cards about it.

    By otis t on Dec 21, 2021

  40. Derrick- many male officers DO panic and shoot unarmed suspects.

    By Mark on Dec 21, 2021

  41. Otis- someone with a badge and gun does not have the right to execute people in the street. She obviously did not believe deadly force was necessary because she meant to use the taser.

    By Mark on Dec 21, 2021

  42. Hebrew Mark , what do most of these black apes killed by brave cops have in common ? RESISTING ARREST, and fighting and mouthing off to the police. Daunte Wright was another black ape thug ( he may have been a halfbreed, he looked like Derrick would say a hi Yeller. . Wright had a rap sheet that included Sxual assault, robbery and battery. His family testified in court that he was some sort of fine upstanding young man , a saint . The prosecution was not allowed to mention his many character flaws . Another cop railroaded .

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  43. Agree with brother Derrick, that women shouldn’t be cops on the street , military combat etc . Women are superior to men in many ways , being street cops and soldiers isn’t one of them . Women should be secretaries, nurses , teachers etc , and if they are in law enforcement and the military, it should be behind a desk , not in the streets with weapons. Maybe a man would have panicked too , but I doubt that a man would mistake a pistol for a taser . . Also that crying on the stand . A man never would have reacted that way . Men act logically, women let emotions get in the way .That said she should have been fired for being incompetent, but not charged with killing that ape thug .

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  44. hhh, that woman had been on the force for 26 years , and was the senior officer in that incident. Yet she can’t tell a gun from a taser . That’s scary Women shouldn’t be street cops . She shouldn’t have been on trial though. She did society a favor by plugging that smart ass nigger . Fewer niggers is a good thing . Unfortunately for every nigger you get rid of , 10 more are born to take their place , usually to unmarried black cunts who don’t know who the father is .

    By Nelson on Dec 21, 2021

  45. That wright looked mixed to me . Half white , half nigger , some white laid down with black bastard. . You can tell . Probably a white bitch , maybe her parents made her give him to the niggers to avoid being disgraced.

    By Nelson on Dec 21, 2021

  46. Yeah , makes sense Nelson . Probably another byproduct of a black ape mudshark white slut union , or another baby mama , baby daddy scenario. By the way Wright had his own illegitimate kid , he was unmarried of course.

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  47. Black apes breed like rabbits. They’ll stick it in anything with a hole , including their mamas and sistas , look at how many freakish looking apes are out their today . Eyes wide apart , square heads , small chins , and low IQs . Definitely a sign of incest.

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  48. Hip Hop culture is the cause of it all .

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  49. No family values anymore, especially in the black communities.

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  50. My family inbreeds like rabbits.

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  51. Shit my pants again, been sitting here in it for an hour just typing swill.

    That’s my life.

    By HHH on Dec 21, 2021

  52. That was a fake. I haven’t soiled myself since Monday. The joke is on you, name stealer.
