‘Rush of Memory’…Tom Rush

While driving down to San Francisco this afternoon, a familiar favorite voice from the rich resources of memory on a PBS station lifted me in a way I couldn’t have dreamed of after so many years since hearing him last.

Please allow me to dip into our past:

For the many who don’t know the name, Tom Rush is one of the last men standing from the Great Folk Music Scare of the 1960’s. He became famous for recording great songs, by songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and Murray McLaughlin before anyone else had ever heard of them. Tom’s also from just over the river in Merrimack, New Hampshire, although he’s lived in Wyoming for several years.

Tom has a new album coming out, his first studio album in thirty-five years.

He was an idol to this young man and still is.

    I am so happy to reminded of this great singer/songwriter/musican. He was a favorite of mine years ago but I have not listened to him for many years. I just download 2 albums on iTunes as a result of your post. What a joy to have him back in my life! Thanks, guys.

    Tara-We don’t ask anything more than the affirmation that we’ve affected people in a positive way-those who read our blog.
    On my drive to ‘The City’, I couldn’t quite believe that he was a guest on ‘Prairie Home Companion-Tales from Lake Wobegon’.
    That voice…a great sense of humor…and songs from his new album——-heaven!
    (plus he’s easy on the eyes….) T.
