Bee is our host and for today our selection is A Folk Love Song from your tweens
My choice today is Elvis Presley’s Kentucky Rain from 1970 when I was 14.
I suddenly liked him after In the Ghetto in 1969 and bought practically every single after that for about 4 years.
Kentucky Rain” is a 1970 song written by Eddie Rabbitt and Dick Heard and recorded by Elvis Presley. It was recorded at American Sound Studio and features then session pianist Ronnie Milsap. Other musicians on the record include Bobby Wood on piano, Bobby Emmons on organ, Reggie Young on guitar, Tommy Cogbill on bass and Gene Chrisman on drums. The song and session was produced by Felton Jarvis (RCA-Victor) and Chips Moman (American Sound Studio of Memphis). It was certified Gold by the RIAA, signifying United States sales of more than a million copies.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Love Elvis! 💙
One of my favorite Elvis songs.
I had loads, and they all had the same photo on the sleeve cover!
So much talent on one song!
Beautiful song and the video was fascinating
Thanks. Glad you liked it.
I am not an Elvis fan but this is a beautiful song and the lyrics are so good 😊
It never seemed to get a lot of airplay though.
No I wonder why
In The Ghetto was the first Elvis single that I bought. I still have it somewhere.
This Neil Young classic is my choice today. Performed by three Queens of Country music.
Great track Glyn.
In The Ghetto was the first Elvis Single that I bought (in Woolworths).
This is a great cover of the classic Neil Young song by three Queens of Country music.
No idea how and why I posted it twice.
