A mind trip I had on a summer night walk.
Sometimes I have sound images in my head. This is one of it.

Daylight – RAMP
A group that was based in Cincinnati and also an acronym for „Roy Ayers Music Productions,“ Ramp released one album in 1977 that didn’t do all that much upon its release.

Supported by the excellent “Daylight”.

Magnolia – J.J. Cale
“Naturally” (1972) was recorded independently, the musicians being paid demo fees. The ingredients thatß went into that project, with subtle drum rhythms, murky vocals sung in a narrow range, and a guitar style that merged country, blues and jazz, established the template for the „Tulsa sound“. Some songs, such as “Call Me the Breeze”, were recorded with primitive drum machine accompaniment and sound almost like demos.
“Magnolia” was released as a single in 1971.
Knockin‘ On Heaven’s Door – Bob Dylan
