An Ill Wind That Blows Nobody Good

Okay, I'm going to hell for that joke.

But in the meantime please enjoy singer/songwriter Ruthann Friedman and her version of a song she gave to The Association who had a huge hit with it (and hopefully it fattened her bank account commensurately).

I must confess I had never heard that till yesterday; I don't think it's quite as transplendent as the Assocation version, but you can clearly understand why the band pounced on it.

I really like it. Sounds as if The (Teaneck) Weasels arranged that track.

Really nice acoustic picking by Ms. Friedman.

British reissue company Now Sounds has a CD reissue out of her CONSTANT COMPANION album, plus a compilation CD. For those looking to delve deeper...

Very cool. Makes me want to reach for my guitar and give a shot. More women songwriters that deserve their due!
