Here is our last grouping of some of the original songs of Bill Morrissey. I talk about my feelings on Bill’s music a bit during the outro on this show so I won’t bore you here, just know that if you’re unfamiliar with this stuff, it is among the finest of any songwriter of any genre anywhere. Buy his albums, there is not a dud in the batch.  Find his book Edson, a beautiful novel about finding your way as you grow older from the perspective of an aging New England singer-songwriter. If you like the imagery painted during his song ‘Small Town on the River’ then you’ll love a novel-length version with plot and characters, just a beautiful story. He was purportedly working on a second. Below you’ll find links to his two main websites and I’ll spare you the many links to some very good articles on his life and death, you can find a host of great links already up on his site. We’ll get to volume 4 in good time, it will feature some of the many great covers Bill has done in various settings over his career. Next time will be a mix show, thanks for listening!
