According to the album notes, the tune for "Living With Lesbians" was taken from an old Scots ballad called "The Banks of the Nile". It's actually quite pretty, and I like the way the guitar and fiddle sound. The lyrics could be stream-of-consciousness (there's a line about admiring a neighbor's equipment...hmm), but then there's a nice rhyming of "bulldozer" and "shows 'er". And the fact that she mentions the season premiere of Rhoda is pretty hilarious. All in all, there's just something funny & brilliant about the combination of an ancient folk tune and the subject matter.
I think Mrs. F.L. & I scored around fifteen albums that day (I passed on the Holly Near), including one by Herbie Mann which pictures him shirtless with his flute slung over his shoulder. Man, is he one hairy individual! It's pretty disgusting--I don't think I'd want to share the album cover (or the music) with anyone. (It's called Push Push, if you want to Google it--sorry, but I can't be responsible). I'll have to write about some of the other ones in the near future, because there are a few more that are definitely Driftwood material.
