Just started to investigate Rockabilly style playing, got the Black Bass and the Weedwackers, watched guys like this man “Slick” Joe Fick….aaaagh! It’s like climbing the north face of the Eiger but let me at it!
Drive north from Sligo for a wee bit then down the steep hill through Rathcormac and on a bit until you pass the church at Drumcliffe where my grandmother played the organ and bullied the choir into shape for years…oh and Yeats is buried in the graveyard there too.
Over the river and turn left after Davis’ restaurant and on down the road towards the village of Carney. Tun left at Laura’s pub and drive on and on passing lovely Lissadell on your left (behind the trees) and on a bit more to Magherow crossroads.
Turn left at Jordan’s pub and off down the road with you passing Ardtarmon castle on the left and turn right at Raghley up around the headland past the Puffin’ hole over the top of the hill and there it is….Raghley Harbour.
Now, wasn’t that worth it!
Found this on you tube. Heroes all givin’ it socks in Japan on Steely Dan’s “Bodhisattva”.
I had forgotten just how good John Entwhistle and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter are. As for Simon Phillips….
