The Dark Clouds have been doing what they do for over 10 years now. So I’m pretty comfortable these days to refer to myself as an artist or even a muso. Now sadly for me there is one big negative to playing Rock n Roll. At times I find myself losing the whole “being a music fan” thing. I can get lost in critiquing the production, a snare sound, the arrangement rather than enjoying it for what it is.
So for this Barfly Top 10 I’ll try and throw my muso hat away and write it as the music fan I’ve been since I first heard "Linda Bella Linda" by Daniel Sentacruz Ensemble back in Rome, 1974.
